Overview exhibitions

The choice of the mail room

Erasmus Gallery - September 22 - October 31, 2017

The EUR has been collecting art for over 50 years, among other things to engage students and employees in art.

How do the employees look at the collection?

We asked the people of Documentary Information (formerly known as Mail & Logistics) to select works for an exhibition in the Erasmus Gallery.

A lively conversation followed, in which was decided to select on feeling.‘With art, it’s just like it is with music. It either touches you, or it doesn’t.’

With an open minded approach the database and the depots were searched, with this fresh and diverse exhibition as a result.

We proudly invite you to visit the exhibition, which is possible till 31 October 2017.

With thanks to the employees of Documentary Information:
Said El Hamdi, Peter van der Ham, Milton Liauw-A-Fong, Kees van Kleij, Ruud Stolk.

Henri Jacobs + Koen Taselaar

Erasmus Gallery - April 13 t / m July 7, 2017

Opening April 13 16:00

We cordially invite you to the opening

For the first time the work of Koen Taselaar and Henri Jacobs is brought together in the duo exhibition JA JA TA TA in the Erasmus Gallery, Erasmus University Rotterdam. For this occasion Taselaar and Jacobs interplay with their work. The work will not only be presented side by side but also over each other.

Next to the image letters and text are a focus point in the work of Koen Taselaar (1986). Existing or homemade lettering and fonts that are created by Taselaar, are stacked, structured and composed in a layered composition. His often humorous ingenuity and direct way of working makes his work free and absolute boundless.

The drawings of Henri Jacobs (1957), are characterized by a virtuous technique, highly precise and playful at the same time. Since 2003 Jacobs is working on the project 'Journal Drawings ", an ongoing series of drawings in which Jacobs repeatedly develops designs and shapes with the at most precision. In the work of Jacobs references to art history and artists such as Matisse and Jasper Johns are often found. In addition to drawings Jacobs also makes tapestries.

For the stairwells of the renovated University Library of the Erasmus University Jacobs has designed two large tapestries, which will be shown after the opening of the library late May 2017.

Erasmus Gallery AB-57 exhibition JA TA TA JA: 13/04 to 7/7, Mon-Fri 9-18.
