Andy Warhol

Escher in The Palace is currently showing a special selection of ten portraits by Andy Warhol. This iconic American Pop Art artist shared his love for graphic arts with M.C. Escher. The screen printing technique that Warhol often chose, gave him the opportunity to make his work in editions, so that his art was available to as many people as possible. Escher also chose printmaking for the same reason: accessibility is of great importance to both artists. In addition, the work of both artists is characterised by principles such as reflection and repetition.

Looking With Your Hands

To celebrate The Hague Fashion Week, Escher in The Palace is organising the exhibition Looking With Your Hands, featuring fashion you can touch by Dutch-Curaçaoan designer Michelangelo Winklaar. Inspired by his visually impaired mother, Winklaar has developed an experimental exhibition in which he allows a wide audience, including blind and visually impaired visitors, to experience a fashion collection by touch as well. Whereas a fashion collection in a museum would ordinarily be not for touching, it is precisely the sense of touch that Winklaar is inviting the public to use.

The paper precision of Annita Smit

This summer, Escher in The Palace welcomes the three-dimensional paper art objects of Dutch artist Annita Smit (b. 1966) between the work of M.C. Escher. Smit uses paper in a three-dimensional way in her intricate artworks, which are full of rhythm, movement and structure. For the objects in this exhibition Smit has used remnants of Bible production and old Bible paper. Her work is characterised by refinement, subtle colours and detailing. What appears from a distance to be one small world turns out to be composed of minuscule cut and coloured pieces of gossamer paper.
