About Voorhout Monumentaal 2021
The middle path of the Lange Voorhout shimmers. The artists of the Pulchri Studio Association have been busy, resulting in a sculpture exhibition, the first for several years. The last such exhibition was in 2016. With this exhibition Pulchri Studio hopes to revive the earlier tradition of The Hague Sculpture. .
The artists come from all walks of life and some are well represented in museum collections. It is very special to see them together in all their diversity. After all kinds of lockdowns, there is, according to curator André van Lier, a growing need for freedom and diversity. That is why the works of art are selected in such a way that an appealing and varied exhibition is created in terms of subjects, dimensions, materials and appearance. An exhibition that draws its strength from the diversity and creativity of the participating artists and actually celebrates the (approaching) end of the pandemic. The exhibition also extends into Pulchri Studio's monumental building. Smaller works are placed on the steps, in the hall and in the inner garden. And there are several solo and group exhibitions with renowned sculptors.
