In the Viewing Room, we are pleased to present "Nuit Americaine" curated by Jantien Jongsma on view through December 23.
"In the previous century, film-makers used to shoot scenes "day for night" - shooting night-scenes during day-time was called "Nuit Americaine". Black curtains and filters for the lens were used to dim the daylight. This exhibition is about suggesting night in fine art by choice of subject, use of color or specific technique. The works of pietsjanke fokkema, Elma van Imhoff, Jantien Jongsma, Geer van der Klugt and Paul Nassenstein make darkness visible."
