from June 14 2008 until November 16 2008
Contemporary artist Karin van Dam (1959) has created the installation Bumping Tumble exclusively for the museum as Intervention #5 within ‘The Collection One’. The work descends like an unfolding parachute from the museum dome. Bumping Tumble presents itself as an organism constructed from floats, ropes, buoys and fenders.
The museum is giving contemporary art a prominent place in its new displays in the form of three artist’s presentations that reflect upon the collection and the building. These visual statements are intensified through alternation with works from the permanent collection, establishing a dialogue that heightens the senses and encourages contemplation. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen has an active programme of exhibiting and responding to leading international artists.
During the exhibitions on Charley Toorop and Erasmus, from 27 September 2008 until 8 February 2009, there is a surcharge of € 3 on top of the museum admission fee (not for ICOM members). On Wednesdays, there is no surcharge and the museum is accessible free of charge to everyone.
