The present show at Stichting Ruimtevaart (Space Travel Foundation) is based on an artistic conversation of four artists who met each other in 1973 at the former Vrije Academie (Free Academy) in The Hague.
By that time the Vrije Academie was the more progressive institution, compared to the then quite conservative Royal Academy (KABK) of The Hague.
However, there is no place for nostalgia in the show.
Each artist has his/her own way of working and thinking and in fact, their works have nothing to do with each other.
In spite of or maybe even due to that, it has become a very accessible exhibition.
Works on show are by Pim Piët, Nies Vooijs and Jan de Weerd.
Alas, the fourth artist, Marion van Rooij, unexpectedly died only a few days before the opening of the show.
Because of that her works could not be presented, so she is now represented by some open spaces.
