Policy plan 2019
Now that the first concrete steps have been taken for the functioning of the board of the Henk Visch Foundation, we will, besides archiving and compiling the collection of artworks made by Henk Visch, continue to expand the plans for exhibiting the collection. Collaboration with other exhibition spaces has been set in motion: the Museum in Boxtel has approached the foundation to make an exbition of sculptures and drawings of Henk Visch that will be part of the estate. The Museum Boxtel has already made a book with the early grafics of Henk Visch. The foundation wil support and curate this exhibition.
In the spring of 2019, the exhibition space at Tongelresestraat 71 (ground floor) in Eindhoven will be open to visitors. The space has been renovated and has become a beautiful, light space for presentations of drawings, photo works, paintings and sculptures. There will also be a work table for office activities. We are looking for a volunteer who can work here and keep the exhibition space open for visitors. The opening times are currently scheduled for Thursday through Saturday from 15pm to 18pm. The space can also be visited by appointment.
The program for 2019:
Exhibitions Tongelresetraat 71
February – April: sculptures, graphics and drawings by Henk Visch
May – August: photo works from the private collection together with works by Jewyo Rhii
September – December: paintings from the private collection
A short description of what will be shown will appear in each exhibition. The exhibition is mentioned on the website of the foundation and e-mails are sent to interested parties. We also look for opportunities to invite young artists to participate in these presentations, in order to make optimal use of the space as a platform for art and for artists.
OPENING: a new exhibition space
The official, festive opening of the space will take place on March 17, 2019. It is important that someone from the art world will be invited to speak, to integrate the exhibition space into the cultural life of Eindhoven and beyond. There is already a lot of interest in this initiative from artists and this is reason for the board to further link the exhibition space to the forming collection of Henk Visch. The exhibition space will be placed on instagram.
We hope that with these activities the application for ANBI status can be successfully completed.
