DWDD Pop-up: the Selection of Paul de Leeuw

On 29 January 2016 the second edition of the 'De Wereld Draait Door' Pop-Up Museum was launched. Guest curator Paul de Leeuw has made an exciting exhibition with works from the collection of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.

Food Porn

After an extensive search through the museum’s depot, he settled on the theme ‘Food Porn’. The space is filled with works that feature nudes and food. "Combined with my fascination with cutlery and tablecloths, it stimulates the imagination", according to De Leeuw. The exhibition is on view at the Allard Pierson Museum in Amsterdam until 22 May 2016.

Paul de Leeuw himself wanted to select works from the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen collection. "As a child I spent unforgettable afternoons in the museum. As far as I’m concerned Boijmans is the greatest museum in the Netherlands."
