This month Virtueel Museum Zuidas programmes an exhibition in the space of Platform21. With proposals and new work by Bik van der Pol, Jon Mikel Euba, 2012Architecten, Justin Bennett and Yael Davids.

During the past five months, six artists/ architects explored the Zuidas as artists-in-residence on invitation of Free Spaces Zuidas. In this work period they were free to involve in thinking about the developments in the Zuidas, a big urban development project in Amsterdam.
This results in different artistic proposals, which have to enforce the relations between art, urban development and public space.

The visions of the artists - ideas, proposals, observations, drawings, comments, videos and performances, will be presented during an exhibition in and around Platform21. What does the 'Smell of Success' smell like for instance? Or how many wind mills are necessary to provide the Zuidas with energy?

The artists-in residence of 2008 are:
Yael Davids (Israel/ The Netherlands)
Jon Mikel Euba (Spain/ Basque)
2012Architecten (The Netherlands)
Justin Bennett (United Kingdom/ The Netherlands)
Bik van der Pol (The Netherlands)

A catalogue will be published during the exhibition.

The artists are invited to participate in this project at the recommendation of the Virtual Museum and it's partners:
The Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture (known in the Netherlands as Fonds BKVB), the Professorship Art and Public Space/ SMBA and Dutch Music Centre.

Opening on Friday 3 October at 17:00.
