ULTRASUPERNEW GALLERY and EMBASSY OF THE KINGDOM OF THE NETHERLANDS are delighted to organise the exhibition “Juxtapose – Dutch Art and Design” curated by KANA KAWANISHI.
By exhibiting works of photography artists and designers in juxtapose – positioned side by side -, this exhibition will allow a new overview and in-depth understanding of creativity from the Netherlands.
Micky HOOGENDIJK’s “Fortitudo” is a strong image of a man striding forward in high contrast of black and white. It’s masculine silhouette beautifully expresses the bold determination of proceeding with its simple compositional division from past to future.
