From 27 January throug h 18 March 2001, De Appel presents Unlimited.nl#4, the fourth in a series
of exhibitions in which attention is drawn to developments in contemporary art in the Netherlands.
The Unlimited.nl projects have grown out of the conviction that contemporary art in the Netherlands
is booming - and blooming. Currently many young artists from different countries are successfully
completing their studies at Dutch art academies. Inviting a foreign guest curator is a way of
instilling the Unlimited.nl exhibitions with surprising observations from an international perspective.
Kortun says the fourth edition of De Appel's Unlimited projects is literally unlimited. 'The project is
without a thematic, conceptual framework - visual or otherwise. The works and the diverse modes
of presentation in the exhibition will range from the quotidian and empathic to the immaterial. This
particular project accepts that contemporary visual culture constitutes a fragile discourse, and that
detours, non-massive articulations and series of incompletions are possible within a limited,
temporary domain. This is a far cry, however, from framing artistic practice within an
institutionalized and insular discourse, which is more than abundant in the Netherlands'.
The artists in the exhibition are: Daniel J. Ashes, Hugo Brito, Robert Estermann, Pascale Gatzen,
Kristof Van Gestel, Philippine Hoegen, Servet Koçyigit, Gabriel Lester, Ebru Özseçen and Jan
De Appel (centre for contemporary art) is open from Tuesday through Sunday, from 12 to 5 pm.
