On Tuesday 24 November, the Kunsthal Rotterdam is organizing another edition of 'KunstKoppels' (ArtCouples). During KunstKoppels you will meet someone in the Kunsthal who is completely new and unknown to you. Someone from another generation, or with a different background or lifestyle. This edition is dedicated to the exhibition ‘Extra Large: Tapestries from Picasso and Le Corbusier to Louise Bourgeois’. After an introduction, the KunstKoppels will visit the exhibition and discover the meters high tapestries whcih are covering the walls at the Kunsthal. The main language during this event is Dutch.
The exhibition ‘Extra Large’ presents a large-scale retrospective of imposing tapestries designed by renowned artists such as Picasso, Le Corbusier, Miró, Vasarely and Louise Bourgeois. They used the age-old weaving technique as the point of departure for their textile art, and constantly reinterpreted it. The exhibition focuses on a period spanning a hundred years, from directly after the First World War up to the present. With their combination of artistic finesse and extraordinary craftsmanship, the over sixty tapestries are of an unrivalled quality and a joy to behold!
