Happily Going Dutch

By Carla Rapoport January 5, 2015

Lumen Exhibition has been to a bookshop (Riga), art galleries (Shanghai, London and Hong Kong), a cathedral (Cardiff) and now it’s on to a glamourous big-city hotel, Amsterdam’s Art ‘otel, one of a small chain of art hotels across Europe which feature artists such as Andy Warhol, Wolf Vostell, and Georg Baselitz. The Amsterdam Art ‘otel, located in the heart of the city, has its own gallery – 5&33 – and what is claimed to be Europe’s longest interactive curtain. We’re thrilled to be invited to show this year’s Lumen Prize show at this venue and are even more pleased that three of this year’s artists have created bespoke work for the interactive curtain. The show – featuring this new work – runs from January 9th to 30th, coninciding with Amsterdam’s Light Festival and Fashion Week.

Happily, there will also be a seminar and demonstration of digital art on January 17th from 3pm – 5pm, followed by a drinks reception and opening. Speakers at the seminar include Emmy and Lumen Prize winner Andy Lomas, Dr Nick Lambert of Birkbeck College and chair of the Computer Arts Society, as well as Laura Dekker, a Lumen Prize artist and Prof Katja Kwastek of VU AmsterdamArt history, author of Aesthetics of interaction in Digital Art.

Hope to see you there!
