Chambres des Canaux: The Tolerant Home
From 1-17 November 2013 various locations alongside the Amsterdam canals hosted an exhibition entitled Chambres des Canaux: The Tolerant Home.
Tolerance, the theme of the exhibition, is a concept that arguably has its roots in the period during which the construction of the Canal Ring started – 400 years ago.
The event took place in 20 classic canal houses with works by 35 contemporary artists. Participating artists included Yael Bartana, David Claerbout, Amie Dicke, Charlotte Dumas, Marlene Dumas, Zachary Formwalt, Alicia Framis, David Haines, Atelier Van Lieshout, Steve McQueen, Julika Rudelius, Viviane Sassen, Fiona Tan, Guido van der Werve and others.
Works by David Jablonowski, Germaine Kruip and Ina van Zyl were exhibited at Huis Van Brienen / Herengracht 284.
