Grand opening night at the museum Filip Gilissen - Knowing Me, Knowing You (2011)

To coincide with the Art Rotterdam and Object Rotterdam fairs, the Raw Art Fair and Re:Rotterdam Art Fair, this weekend Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is opening the major spring exhibition, ABSALON, with films, models and a collection of white constructions by the artist Absalon, who died at the age of twenty-eight in 1993. In addition to this exhibition, we are opening four more exhibitions on Friday 10 February: Mister Delta, Kindred Collections, Intervention #20 by Evelyne Janssen, and a display about Maarten van Heemskerck.

Filip Gilissen – Knowing Me Knowing You
During the opening night, at 8pm, this installation by Belgian artist Filip Gilissen (1980) will be on show at the courtyard of the museum.
The visitor is stimulated to call a mysterious phone number which travels along with the VIP-program of ART Rotterdam. A golden telephone is presented under a spotlighted in the dark gallery space of Wilfried Lentz.

You are hereby cordially invited to attend the opening on 10 February. At 11 pm the celebrations will move to the Rotterdamse Schouwburg for the Art Afterparty.
