Expected: Royal Encounters

A royal encounter will be taking place in Escher in The Palace this autumn. In honour of the graphic art and printmaking triennial Grafiek2022, the museum has invited 10 artists from The Hague to draw inspiration from Lange Voorhout Palace and its main occupant, Queen Mother Emma. The selected artists normally create work in a variety of disciplines, from large architectural installations to photography. This exhibition entails them being challenged to step outside their comfort zone by producing new graphic work.

Expected: Playing with Mirrors

Escher in The Palace will be looking in the mirror of M.C. Escher this summer. Escher’s world is a mirrored world – a game of repetition and reflection, looking and being amazed. His self-portraits in convex mirrors show the graphic artist himself in just such an alternative world. The reflections in natural scenes or small Italian streets betray Escher's love of the possibilities that reflections bring. This summer, you will experience Escher's fascination with reflections in Escher in The Palace. A fascination that continues to grip contemporary artists to this day.

Glass sculptures by Tomas Hillebrand

Escher in The Palace enriches its playful second floor with three glass artworks by Tomas Hillebrand. As an artist, Hillebrand (Amsterdam, 1977) graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy with large charcoal drawings, but after his training he turned to making glass sculptures. Whereas glass is often used to make functional objects, Hillebrand's fascination lies in creating autonomous works of art. In his recent work, the spherical glass sculptures are often silvered, so that the viewer sees himself reflected in the glass.
