Art Curator

An exhibition maker needs feelers for social issues and an interest in what is going on worldwide. Starting the conversation without prejudice or exclusion is what I want to achieve. It is this dynamic that is the key to the success of an exhibition that knows how to create magic.

So many people wish so much; Everyone has a different frame of reference and assesses what is shown from their own perception. Interacting with young people with their indomitable curiosity but also with seniors with their rich reservoir of experiences, broadens my horizons. I am looking forward meeting you.

Art bio

As a graduated art historian (RU Leiden) I laid the foundation for my curatorial work with the Noordwijkse BeeldenBoulevard in 2005; a biennial of 15 leading young sculptors. From 2010 I was curator of the art manifestation Kunst in Duin with Land Art as the main pillar. From 2012 I was co-organizer of the Ceramics event Clay2Day. In 2018 I started as curator of Glasrijk Tubbergen; an annual manifestation of modern glass art. Since 2021 I am a board member of the Association of Friends of Modern Glass.  Since edition 2022 I am curator of Kunstmaand Ameland.

Kunstmaand Ameland 2022

Since 2022 I am curator of Kunstmaand Ameland. About 80 artists from the Netherlands, Germany and Scandinavia (the Nordic art), selected by me, will show art and performances from all disciplines throughout the month of November. From picturesque churches to the beautiful dunes; The challenge is to interweave the art with the location and thus reinforce each other. With more than 8,000 visitors per edition Kunstmaand Ameland is an art event not to be missed.

Taking care of the content of an exhibition with an accompanying art historical publication, if desired, is a great challenge for me as a freelancer. Immediately deployable at a new (museum) exhibition to be developed to getting on an already moving 'exhibition' train; Through years of experience and carefully gathered knowledge, I am happy to accept these challenges as an independent art historian. A total package in which a museum or institution is pleasantly unburdened by me, as a flying keep.

I have demonstrated experience in improving the visibility of the project through communication in all forms like press approach, marketing (social media), grant applications, feasibility studies and crowdfunding for the cultural sector.

Art communicator

I like to write about art. For art magazines such as Glas (published by the Association of Friends of Modern Glass) and Beelden Magazine, but also for various lifestyle magazines. I wrote publications for art catalogues for top photographer Barend Houtsmuller (known from the TV program Het Perfecte Plaatje). Together with him I organized an exhibition of his work in which a beautiful overview catalogue was published.

For the Theatre performance 'Isadora', performed by KunstKlank under the direction of musical director Herma van Piekeren, I wrote the essay 'Isadora & Noordwijk'. A story about the life of the American founder of modern dance Isadora Duncan who lived in Noordwijk for some time.

Art collecting

Creating an inspiring work environment can be optimized with art. Artvision mediates in art purchases for private collectioneurs, companies and foundations using its large network of professional artists who listen carefully to the wishes of a client. Paintings, sculptures, photographs, glass and artistic murals are among the possibilities to radiate an attractive identity.

Art talks

An art lecture can be tailor-made about everything that is going on in society or what your company stands for. Looking for something special? Give your business partners a surprising and amusing afternoon/evening. I give art lectures with a lot of visual material. An art tour with unexpected angles and linked to current events, is an afternoon out where the guest goes home with more knowledge and a smile.

Art in public space 

In every village or city there are tunnels, viaducts and alleys that are unattractive. These are locations that users get an unpleasant feeling about and prefer to avoid but these places are on a cycling or walking route. To make these places more attractive, Artvision works with leading street artists including Urban Art Studio GOMAD (    

If desired, Artvision bundles the inventory of the wishes of stakeholders regarding large-scale art projects in ‘feasibility study’s’. The results are discussed intensively with the client and incorporated into the final execution of the art assignment.
