RCE + EST: when concrete, minimal and media art come together
EST art foundation
2312 LW Leiden
August 26 – October 15, 2023
Hours: Fri-Sun, 1–5 pm and by appointment
Opening: August 26, 3–5 pm, by Sylvia van Schaik (RCE)
RCE + EST is the result of a collaboration between the Cultural Heritage Agency (RCE) and EST art foundation. Two collections are merged within this exhibition and engage in dialogue with each other. Three art movements are being observed through the same lens: art for art’s sake. All artworks only refer to themselves. No complex themes or narratives, what you see is what you get.
The artworks from the RCE and EST collections are spread through the exhibition space and illustrate how fluid the three central art movements are. Even though the artworks are the result of different processes, they share a similar non-referential message.
The exhibition includes works from the following artists from the RCE collection: Arie Berkulin, Bob Bonies, Toni Burgering†, Maria Hees, Jan van Munster, Tomas Rajlich, Bert Schutter, Peter Struycken, herman de vries, Mirja de Vries and Fred Wessels†.
EST is represented by: Iemke van Dijk, Jasper van der Graaf, José Heerkens, Henriëtte van ’t Hoog, Jan Maarten Voskuil and Guido Winkler.

Participating artists: Linda Arts (NL), Justin Andrews (AU), Alain Biltereyst (BE), Bob Bonies (NL), Sanne Bruggink (NL), Sigrid Calon (NL), Matthew Deleget (US), Jasper van der Graaf (NL), Terry Haggerty (GB), Brent Hallard (AU), Henriëtte van ’t Hoog (NL), Gilbert Hsiao (US), Gracia Khouw (NL), Zora Kreuzer (DE), Guido Nieuwendijk (NZ), Rob de Oude (NL), Jan van der Ploeg (NL), Thomas Raat (NL), Marije Vermeulen (NL), Zedz (NL).
This exhibition features murals created at the invitation of Museum De Lakenhal by twenty leading artists of varying national origin. The wall paintings all build on the ideas of Theo van Doesburg, who launched his De Stijl magazine in Leiden exactly a century ago. The exhibition is the work of guest curators Iemke van Dijk and Guido Winkler.
One hundred years after the birth of the De Stijl movement, Museum De Lakenhal is taking stock of what has been achieved. The murals are being exhibited in the town’s Pieterskerkhof area, while a scale model of the Maison d’Artiste can be seen on Het Gerecht. The Maison d’Artiste was designed by Theo van Doesburg and Cornelis van Eesteren in Paris in 1923.
