The Hague Heritage

We went to the vernissage of the exhibition ‘The Hague Heritage‘ at the Heden gallery. This show is a hommage to artists who have a link to The Hague. Heden invited 30 artists who are either born, live, work or study(ied) in this city by the sea. These artists each chose their favorite work. The Hague Heritage is running to 07 juli 2019

Hong Kong Ballet 40th Anniversary Video

Ballet

‘Never standing Stll’ is the name of the latest Hong Kong Ballet campaign in celebration of their 40th anniversary. The art direction, typography and the video are made by Design Army, This design agency is, in their own words, a “Full Service Design Centric Agency”. Okay, they are based in Washington DC. What we really like about this campaign is that it mixes classical and pop references. That is done So well! After watching the video we, at Mimi Berlin, really need to see a performance by this ballet company. #bucketlist

Video

Gotta Love this video! All the color! All the movements! All the references! All the fun! Brill!!

Edoardo Tresoldi’s Mesh Buildings

Mesh Buildings

Edoardo Tresoldi creates “public space interventions” by building with mesh, in metal. Tresoldi also makes birds and people with mesh but we, at Mimi Berlin, prefer these huge and useless buildings. Up to today the largest house Edoardo built was for the 2018 Coachella Musics and Arts Festival in California, it’s named ‘Etherea’.

‘Etherea’ and ‘Sacral’ by Eduardo Tresoldi. ‘Home Within Home Within Home Within Home Within Home’ by Do Ho Suh.

Transparency

These works remind us of Do-Ho Suh’s sculptures, which are made in fabric but are equally transparent. Also, both artsists explore how to create houses and interiors. It would be nice to see their work in one place, don’t you think?

Edoardo Tresoldi

“Edoardo Tresoldi plays with the transparency of mesh and with industrial materials to transcend the time-space dimension and narrate a dialogue between Art and World, a visual summary which reveals itself in the fade-out of physical limitations.
Mixing classical and modern language, he generates a third one, strongly contemporary.” (read more/img via edoardotresoldi.com)

Made In Amsterdam-Noord Photography for IJmagazine

IJmagazine

IJmagazine is a printed ‘glossy’ magazine about Amsterdam-Noord, well, it’s actually printed on beautiful matte paper. By ‘glossy’ we mean that the content is very high-end in means of lay-out, photography and stories. Inside this second issue you will find a photo-series by Mimi Berlin and JW Kaldenbach. We made an alternative shopping-editorial on things ‘made’ and ‘collected’ in Amsterdam-Noord.

Amsterdam Noord

Furthermore the magazine shows hot-spots, interior styling, architectural pieces in Noord, and most important: newly build homes, as in buildings for sale in the Northern part of Amsterdam, across from the city-center near the IJ waterfront.

IJmagazine is for sale

The IJmagazine is for sale at the so-called better bookstores, such as for example Athenaeum and Scheltema in Amsterdam. Or subscribe to the ‘aan t IJ‘ newsletter and get it for free.

ArtZuid the Amsterdam Sculpture Biennial 2019

ArtZuid

The bi-annual open-air sculpture route in Amsterdam, ArtZuid is open for visits. The sixth edition is curated by artist Michiel Romeyn and art historian Jhim Lamoree. On show are about sixty sculptures on a 2,5 km route on the streets of Amsterdam. Easiest way to see the sculptures, in our opinion, is to just start walking from the Apollolaan or the Minervalaan, here you find the information pavilion as well.

ArtZuid Route

If you want guidance there’s lot’s of choice. Artcamps, lectures, tours, artist talks and other events are programmed for your convenience. Otherwise just go out whenever you fancy and walk by yourself. The route is open 24/7 until September 2019 and is free of charge.

Plan Zuid is the Heart

The first edition was held ten years ago in 2009. It’s original place is Plan Zuid (“South Plan”) which is the urban concept by the Dutch architect Berlage realized in 1915. Plan Zuid is the “heart” of ArtZuid. The Dutch sculpture route has grown massively since 2009, branching out to the MuseumPlein and the Zuidas business district. Also a new annex in Amstelveen is open. For more and adequate informatio about the route it’s best go to the website: artzuid.nl

Cobra Art Camping in Amstelveen

Art Camping Cobra

The Cobra Museum of modern art in Amstelveen is organizing ‘Camping Cobra‘ on the 25th of May 2019. What is this, you ask of us. Well, it’s exactly what you think it is. A sleepover at the Museum. Hunderd people can bring their sleepingbags and matresses to spend the night. Bringing your own matresses isn’t very chique, we know, but this is a slumberparty for children of course. We all now a child doesn’t need comfort whilst sleeping (tsssss). Adults are also welcome but they have to be accompanied by a kid.

Camping Cobra  (CoBrA Museum)

24H Amstelveen Festival

The Camping event is organized within the 24H Amstelveen festival. 24H Amstelveen is about the experience of more than 40 activities in Amstelveen in just 24 hours. We suppose that’s for people with very little time to spend, like tourists for example, but also for children obviously.

Anyways, everything ‘tongue in cheek’ aside; if you would like to sleep under famous paintings made by Karel Appel and friends make a reservation here. It costs €10,-.

PS
We do hope that everybody reading this post knows what the Cobra Museum is. If not let us tell you. Cobra stands for Copenhagen (Co), Brussels (Br), Amsterdam (A), it is an expressionist art movement from the 20th century (1948-1951). the Cobra Museum in Amstelveen houses only work made by the artists whitin this group.
