exhibition: 27 / 01 / 2017 - 05 / 02 / 2017
Location: Eastern Swimming Pool

The Prinses Beatrixbad - part of the Oostelijk Zwembad on the Gerdesiaweg in Kralingen - will be an exhibition space. The first exhibition in the series Bathers opens on Friday 27 January. Two more exhibitions are planned later in the year.

The successful exhibition is the reason for the exhibition program POOL that took place at the same location last October. Artist Serge Game then chose work by nine artists who entered into a dialogue with the swimming pool. The exhibition was set up together with the Bob Smit Gallery. Also this time is the exhibition Bathers compiled by Game in collaboration with curator Sabine Alders. The composers are guided by the context of the location: the artworks chosen match the color, appearance or appearance of the bath or form a contrast with this.

History of the Princess Beatrixbad
The Princess Beatrixbad is hidden in the Eastern Swimming Pool. The former therapeutic and rehabilitation bath closed in 2014, after financial problems prevented the bath from being restored. Through the exhibitions, the bath hopes to become visible again to a wide audience in order to make renovation possible. Within the program there is room for both established names and young talent. In the pilot exhibition you can see work from Madeleine Berkhemer, Jonathan Gaarthuis, Serge Game, Menno Hiele en Johannes Langkamp.
