Rotterdam – the Netherlands
Lakeside Collection takes a part in Unlocked/Reconnected exhibition at ‘Villa Lakeside’ in Rotterdam. Artwork shown is the ‘Bust Chair’ by Tomáš Gabzdil Libertíny. Besides showing the artwork 12 conversations will be held and recorded with interesting guests out of the Dutch art world, so called ‘Bust Chair Conversations’. Contemplating and looking ahead after reopening and starting life and participation in the world.
Unlocked/Reconnected is an initiative that brings together a wide range of 'houses for art': museums, institutes for presentation, galleries, artists' initiatives, and corporate collections. The point of departure for Unlocked/Reconnected is the idea of solidarity, the will to reflect collectively on what home is. Our world must not become fragmented, fractured into enclosing walls: a consolidation of forces and locations, national and international, can in fact show us what the house/home can mean. As an initiative Unlocked/Reconnected stems from a sense that opening up the home, in the aftermath of the lockdown, will force us to reconsider our outlook on this. Unlocked/Reconnected underlines the importance of art and culture in this period of global crisis.
