H’ART Museum announces program 2024-2028

13 February 2024

Today, H’ART Museum in Amsterdam unveils its first 5-year exhibition program, organized in collaboration with its international museum partners. From around the world, H’ART Museum will bring famous works of art and their multiple stories in one-of-a-kind exhibitions. The unique exhibition program is being mounted hand in hand with the Centre Pompidou, the British Museum and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. A particularly magnificent guest exhibition from The Leiden Collection is planned for Amsterdam’s 750th anniversary in 2025.

2024 – 2025: Kandinsky & David Levinthal

This summer, H’ART Museum and the Centre Pompidou will launch their collaboration with a major exhibition about Wassily Kandinsky (Moscow 1866–Paris 1944). The Centre Pompidou holds one of the world’s most renowned collections of the artist’s work. Among the absolute highlights of the show will be a life-size reconstruction of the Salon de Réception of the Juryfreie exhibition in Berlin (1922). With more than 60 artworks from the Centre Pompidou collection, the exhibition will provide a close look at Kandinsky’s artistic oeuvre: a personal journey that made him one of the great founders of abstract art. The year will reach a festive conclusion with the launch of H’ART Museum’s collaboration with the Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM). Featuring the remarkable presentation American Myth and Memory: David Levinthal Photographs. David Levinthal (b. 1949) creates photographs that explore the cultural prominence of quintessential American subjects and the influence of mass media in mythologizing them. H’ART Museum is collaborating with SAAM on this European first.

Organized with The Leiden Collection, it will feature over a dozen paintings by the Netherlands’ most iconic artist: Rembrandt van Rijn. Also included in this exhibition will be other masterpieces from Rembrandt’s circle in Amsterdam as well as his hometown, Leiden. This project marks the second collaboration between H’ART Museum and The Leiden Collection, founded by the Franco-Ameri- can collector, Dr. Thomas S. Kaplan, and his wife Daphne Recanati Kaplan. In the second half of the year, Centre Pompidou icon Constantin Brancusi (Hobița, Romania 1876–Paris 1957) will take center stage.
