Re-Constructing Stevens

In this project at the Van Gogh museum, seven artists from different disciplines were invited to react on the work of the 19th century painter Alfred Stevens. His drawings portray women in their natural surroundings – mostly as part of the décor, and reflecting on womens’ status at that time and place. The project raises the question whether modern woman had freed herself from the décor.

The project was created by 3 groups of different artist from a variety of art disciplines who were discussing and researching the question on a weekly basis (each artist through his own art form) on the project’s blog. The end result was an exhibition of the created works and a discussion at the Van Gogh Museum regarding the conclusions.
