On Saturday 2 September Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and Hutspot are organizing a Sleepover at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. You have a chance to spend the night in the museum’s garden by telling us which artwork in the permanent exhibition you would like to spend twenty-four hours with.
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen’s permanent collection now has a completely different layout. Guest curator Carel Blotkamp devised a rehang of more than five hundred artworks that invites visitors to take a longer look at them. He wants to promote ‘slow looking’.
You will spend the night in an innovative designer tent provided by the pop-up hotel To Many Places. That evening the travelling dinner concept Pique_Unique will lay on a private dinner followed by an exclusive evening guided tour of the museum. After closing time, you will be able to spend time getting to know your favourite artwork in peace and quiet.
