from June 14 2014 until September 21 2014
In the summer of 2014 the exhibition 'NOBSON', will bring together for the first time Paul Noble’s twenty-three enormous pencil drawings of his surreal universe Nobson Newtown.
Visitors to the museum in the summer of 2014 will be amazed at the fantastic events in this invented world, created by Paul Noble (1963, UK) since 1996. The exhibition will bring together all his large-scale drawings in the series, (some as large as 7 x 6 metres). This series has never been shown together and the individual works are spread over museums and private collections worldwide. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen purchased two works by the artist in 2004 and 2005. At that time it was agreed that the entire series would be exhibited in the museum’s 1500 m2 Bodon Galleries when it neared completion (although it is uncertain whether the series will ever be finished). In 2014 the series will be exhibited ‘minus two’, in connection with the projects that Noble will work on after the exhibition.
