Exhibitions
Imperial Courts
Now on - May 10, 2020

In this 69-minute video triptych by Dutch photographer Dana Lixenberg, you're invited to observe the lives of the residents of Imperial Courts – a public housing project located in Watts, Los Angeles. Lixenberg first traveled to L.A. to document the riots that erupted following the verdict in the Rodney King trial. What ensued was an art project 20 years in the making.

Imperial Courts at Stedelijk Museum offers a compassionate look at everyday life in this tempestuous neighborhood. From women braiding each other's hair while discussing food, to the community coming together to celebrate a child's graduation. The rhythmic banality is offset by the subtle aura of violence and police brutality that is ever-present here; the ominous rumble of police helicopters and the simple monuments commemorating local victims of gun violence.

Witness Lixenberg's intimate record of the passage of time in this complex and underserved community.

Description

Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum, the permanent home of the Dutch National Museum of Modern Art, has one of the richest modern art collections in the world. As well as regularly rotating temporary exhibitions, the museum houses many modern classics.

The permanent collection of the Stedelijk (Dutch for 'municipal') Museum includes works from leading lights of 19th- and 20th-century painting. Artists include Monet, Picasso and Chagall - as well as Pop Art from Warhol and Lichtenstein.

There are also abstracts by Mondrian and Kandinsky, a unique collection of 29 paintings by influential avant-garde painter Casimir Malevich, and a whole lot more. With a collection of 90,000 works of art in its 9,000m2 of exhibition space, there's sure to be something for everyone.

The terrace that opens onto Amsterdam's famous Museumplein is the perfect spot to relax after your museum visit, enjoy a slice of cake, and repeatedly say to your companions, "Yes, the art was beautiful, but what does it mean?".
