Following the success of the special evening openings ‘without clothing’ during the exhibitions ‘Robert Mapplethorpe. A Perfectionist’ in 2017, ‘Hyperrealism Sculpture’ in 2018 and ‘Joana Vasconcelos. I’m Your Mirror’ in 2019 the Kunsthal Rotterdam is again organising a Naked Tour. This time of the exhibition ‘Extra Large’. A large-scale retrospective of imposing tapestries based on designs by renowned artists like Pablo Picasso, Le Corbusier, Miró, Vasarely and Louise Bourgeois. Walk along the more than sixty hand woven, meters high, tapestries, in your nude! Due to great interest, a new date Saturday November 7th has been added. The main language during this event is Dutch.
The exhibition focuses on a period of a hundred years, with tapestries made directly after the First World War up until now. In ten chapters, ‘Extra Large’ will show the development of the tapestry and reveal the endless possibilities of the craft. With their combination of artistic finesse and extraordinary craftsmanship, these metres-high, handwoven tapestries are of an unrivalled quality and a joy to behold
