Arresting and challenging, the exhibition China Now offer an extensive look at Chinese art of today. A special feature of this exhibition is that it has been compiled by Feng Boyi, one of the first to curate shows of Chinese avant-garde art. He has selected more than 75 works by 40 different artists; many of these works come from the Essl Museum in Vienna. Recent artwork direct from China supplements this exhibition. China Now will run from 29 September 2007 to 27 January 2008.

Amstelveen Triennial 2007
06.10.2007 - 28.10.2007

The Amsterdam Triennial is to take place at the Cobra Museum of Modern Art Amstelveen from 6 - 28 October

This year the Triennial has as its theme: Dialogue with Cobra

Last spring artists were invited to enter into a dialogue with top works from the CoBrA collection. In recent years the Museum has been able to acquire very special CoBrA art works, in part with the assistance of the BankGiro Lottery, the Rembrandt Society, the Mondrian Foundation and the VSB Fund. The artists chose a companion piece for their entry from a choice of fifteen CoBrA works in the collection. From the many entries submitted, eighteen dialogue works were selected, which can be seen next to the relevant CoBrA art works, with a short artist's statement, during the Triennial.

The eighteen chosen artists are: Fritz Behrendt, Sharon van den Berg, Isabelle Duval, Hans Fransen, Ramaz Goiati, Michel Hoekstra, Hilly Immink-Van der Weele, Stef Kreymborg, Achnaton Nassar, Fahrettin Örenli, Herman Pijnaker, Piet Reekers, Stephanie Rhode, Ulric Roldanus, Joop Rubens, Jan Verschoor, Júlia dos Santos Baptista and Annette van Waaijen.
