Jump into the Future: Opening Night

Jump into the Future: Opening Night

Mimi Berlin Blogger Team visited the opening night of the exhibition Jump into the Future –  Art from the 90’s and 2000’s. The Borgmann Donation. Thomas Borgmann is an art-collector who donated (the largest donation yet) his art to the Stedelijk museum in Amsterdam. Among the featured artists are Cosima von Bonin (see images below)

The opening night wasn’t just drinks-n-nibbles-like, no; it was a true large-scaled party! An ‘Artsy-Party’ to be precise. The Stedelijk museum co-hosted, with Ultrasexy and Amsterdam Art Weekend, this party for everyone for free. the gigantic entrance hall of the Stedelijk Museum transforms into an intimate artistic rave club where nothing is what it seems (readmore artsy party) We are not sure it was an intimate affair; the place was packed, but the museum sure was turned into a rave club! Fun! For a moment we truly felt like we lived in ‘the big-city’. Thanks for donating this party Amsterdam!

Purple Project

Purple Project

Purple Project is an art project, a collaboration between UK based illustrator/artist Petra Lunenburg and designer/photographer Baukje Bies, who is based in The Netherlands.

These two women found each other in the exceptional love they share for the artist formerly known as Prince (may he rest in peace). With this purple royalty in mind they created illustrations, photo’s and digital photo collages: “an ode to the musical legacy and style of the greatest artist of all time in this genre”. The first outing of the Purple Project collaboration is captured in 17 artworks on paper. (as seen above) You can follow the Purple Project on Instagram: @purpleproject_art, to see all the images they created. You can order the set of 17 cards, sized A5, by sending a message to: purple_project_art@outlook.com for only €39,99
