LALALA HUMAN STEPS

ROTTERDAM, 2015

 

EXHIBITION DESIGN FOR THE ?LA LA LA HUMAN STEPS? IN MUSEUM BOIJMANS VAN BEUNINGEN

Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen was showing its own collection in the Bodon Rooms on a grand scale: from old masters to young talent, from immense installations to small paintings, from unnerving melancholy to entertaining absurdity. ?When you look at the collection you see that artists from all ages and from all disciplines have made extremely personal images of the world. These images, you could say, are linked together underground,? explain the compilers of the exhibition Sjarel Ex (Director) and Els Hoek (Education Curator).

4 x La La La Human Steps
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen experimented by asking four choreographers, who reach an audience of millions, to each create a duet inspired by the exhibition. Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, La La La Human Steps of Montréal and House of Makers (associated with the Dutch National Ballet) are each producing a duet danced by a man and a woman, visualizing the process of attraction and rejection. At the heart of the exhibition will be a dance floor for them to use. Dance is a link in the exhibition which will change and define the environment of the works of art. During the openingsweekend the Rotterdam HipHopHuis presents a duel between street dancers Ques and Claerence Person.
