artist name
Voorwerk is a series of yearly exhibitions in Witte de With, Rotterdam. Voorwerk, meaning preliminary work, is Witte de With’s annual exhibition of younger artists. As a series, it seeks to provide the first substantial presentation of works by relatively unknown artists.
Within the art world’s tendency to formulate relationships, Voorwerk is a peripheral event, captivating because of the heterogeneous character of the work. There are no common denominators or themes in these exhibitions, rather the artists’ works and ideas are left open for comparison.
The complete set of boxes with multiples, edited with the annual exhibition, includes Voorwerk 1 (in 1990), Voorwerk 2 (in 1991), Voorwerk 3 (in 1992).
