ALL YOU CAN ART
The celebration of the tenth anniversary of Instituto Buena Bista (IBB), a pre-academy for young, talented Curacao residents.
How do you present artistic energy? How do you show creative dynamic? How does vitality looks like? How do you illustrate the power of imagination?
The founding fathers of IBB – Tirzo Martha (1965, Willemstad, Curacao) and David Bade (1970, Willemstad, Curacao), together with their crew and their students got the opportunity and the freedom to visualize this in De Kunsthal in Rotterdam. An overwhelming ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ build out of drawings, paintings, sculptures, video works and installations of the founding fathers, of students and ex-students, of artists in residence from all over the world, completed by works of artists from Curacao. An inspiring chaos of mixed images, mixed talents, mixed ideas and concepts.
For the traditional museum visitor perhaps ‘a curse in church’, for the curious and open visitor an unforgettable art event.
