Extraordinary meetings

On Tuesday 7 December, 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 Magnetic North. After an introduction you will visit the exhibition as KunstKoppel, and together you will discover the magic of Canada in paintings and sketches of the group of Seven. KunstKoppels is organized in cooperation with Rotterdam Heroes, a youth project of Unie Van Vrijwilligers Rotterdam (UVV). The main language during this event is Dutch.

'Magnetic North' focuses on the Canadian modernist paintings of artists around the Group of Seven, an artist’s collective that is still immensely popular in Canada. At the heart of the exhibition, audio-visual works by the Algonquin-French artist Caroline Monnet and the Anishinaabe filmmaker Lisa Jackson, open up a critical perspective on the paintings. These films by women who are rooted in cultures of the Indigenous peoples of these territories enable us to look at the landscapes by the Group of Seven in a different way.
