“Pietà, A Reconsideration of the Gesture” solo show by Rini Hurkmans

Lumen Travo Gallery is delighted to present the new solo show by Rini Hurkmans.

Titled Pietà, A Reconsideration of the Gesture, this exhibition shows the works that Hurkmans developed during her working period as Artist in Residence at the Royal Netherlands Institute in Rome (KNIR). Her research into the press photo of the moment just after Michelangelo’s Pietà was attacked in 1972 serves as the starting point for her new work that also builds upon earlier work inspired by this photo since she acquired it in 1992.


The lecture by Guus van der Hout, planned for this Saturday, is moved until further notice. Because of the new corona measures announced yesterday, also the gallery will be closed for the time being.

Our thoughts go out to you, stay safe and positive and hopefully see you soon at the gallery!
