Bonnefantenmuseum, Avenue Céramique 250, Maastricht (NL)
Beating around the bush is an exhibition programme for 2014, in which the Bonnefantenmuseum is presenting its collection in an investigative way. In four episodes, both the fixed values and the 'quiet reserve' of the collection will be brought into dialogue with new and proposed acquisitions. In addition, interventions in the form of small solo presentations will function as mirrors to reflect new content-related insights and perspectives. Each episode has a different thematic angle, through which the individual artists' practices will be explored, as well as the museum collection as a whole and associated movements.
