Touching with your eyes, seeing with your hands
All of Maastricht will be under the spell of Museumnacht Maastricht on Friday 14 April 2023. During this extraordinary art night out, you can witness the city transform and the world of art come to life with a once-in-a-night-time programme. Enjoy with one single ticket extraordinary art exhibitions, breathtaking performances, exciting cross-overs, video-art, workshops, tours, live music, and more. It’s almost an art in itself to be able to take it all in.
The exhibition Táctica Sintáctica by artist Diego Bianchi and curator Mariano Mayer subverts museum rules in order to provide a prominent space to the body: Art works are scattered in the rooms, some partly hidden, others can only be viewed when visitors are willing to squat, climb or kneel down. A true playground for visitors with the works of David Hockney, Julia Spínola, Dan Flavin, Dora García, Jimmie Durham and Joachim Koester, and many others. During Museum Night, visitors will be presented with a playful training for the body. The radical question is: what does the body want?
Extended, the youth department of Marres and the Jan van Eyck Academy, takes visitors through their research on body experience, identity and ecology.
