Memento Mori - Damien Hirst: 12 July 2014 - 30 November 2014
Damien Hirst (b.1965) is not only fascinated by death, but likes to draw on traditional art historical themes and examples to inspire his work. The somber theme of the show – the Latin phrase 'Memento mori' means ‘Remember that you will die’ – is illustrated by a series of Hirst’s etchings, displayed in dialogue with the works of Rodolphe Bresdin (1822-1885) and his student Odilon Redon (1840-1916). Bresdin and Redon saw death as a mystery passing human understanding, whereas Hirst takes a less threatening and more contemporary view.
Mark Rothko: 20 September 2014 - 01 March 2015
The first Dutch Mark Rothko exhibition in 40 years takes place at Gemeentemuseum Den Haag! From rosy pink and jubilant yellow to bright blue to sombre black – face any of the vast canvases created by Mark Rothko (1903-1970) and you feel yourself being sucked into his world. Constructed layer upon shimmering layer, his colour fields are of unparalleled intensity and communicate universal human emotions such as fear, ecstasy, grief and euphoria. A unique chance to enjoy Rothko’s work, this exhibition will be held only in The Hague and nowhere else.
