'boys' - de vishal - haarlem - 2015

In 2013 Bart Drost wrote a plan for the 'boys' exhibition at De Vishal in Haarlem. As curator of the exhibition, together with artist Claus-Pierre Leinenbach, he invited fellow artists  and they worked together on the realization of the project.For this occasion, the St. Bavo Cathedral was involved in the presentation.

'Boys' is about dreams and expectations, about possible and impossible. About stereotype images that people have in mind. The artists of 'boys' each transform these often culturally determined images in their own way and thus offer new perspectives on this theme. At a time when the man should be preserved as a boy, these perspectives are more than welcome. '


a very short introduction

It is customary in De Vishal for exhibitors to give a brief explanation of their work to the 'friends of the Vishal'.
