Tresspassers W.

exhibition: 17 / 06 / 2016 - 19 / 06 / 2016
Location: Wijnbrugstraat

The exhibition opens during the Wijnhaven Festival Trespassers W of the students of the Willem de Kooning Academy. Work by more than thirty students from different professional disciplines can be seen on 17, 18 and 19 June in the exhibition space of the new Strips! Museum on the Wijnbrugstraat.

Central to this final presentation of the Public & Private minor is story telling. The pioneers leave the beaten track and cause visual rapids through quirky statements in both applied and autonomous directions. From a life-size Pirelli calendar about forty pounds of weight loss, voyeuristic photos and clothing from chip bags to Klinefelter syndrome and a hallucinating tropical island in the Wijnhaven.

The expo is freely accessible to the public at:
Friday 17 June of 18.00 - 21.00 hour during the festive opening
Saturday 18 June from 12.00 - 21.00 hour
Sunday 19 June 12.00 - 17.00 hour

Location: Strips! Museum, Wijnbrugstraat, Rotterdam
