Renewed Past

in jewellery by Evert Nijland and in contemporary art

06.03 to 28.08.2016 | CODA Museum

The exhibition Renewed Past in CODA Museum shows how themes, visual language and techniques from the past play a new, relevant role in contemporary art. An important part of this exhibition is an overview of jewellery made by Evert Nijland. CODA Museum presents Nijland's work combined with his broad selection of contemporary art by visual artists who, each in their own way, work with elements and symbolism from western (art) history and/or historical techniques and crafts. The exhibition offers a broad spectrum of interpretations and perspectives, making no distinction between autonomous and applied art.

Reinterpreting western (art) history

CODA Museum presents Nijland's work together with his broad selection of contemporary art. In their own unique way, the artists in this exhibition give new meaning to techniques, materials and symbolism from western art history, thus demonstrating the importance of the past in contemporary art. Sometimes they do this by literally incorporating quotations, other times by reinterpreting a theme, symbolism, religious or mythical elements. Renewed Past is staged by Evert Nijland, CODA director Carin Reinders, Ward Schrijver and advisor Hélène Bremer. Mercurius & Psyche, a publication about Nijland’s work, is due to come out in the same period.
