In the beginning was the BLACK. An absolute darkness before the fateful Big Bang, as assumed by today's scientific theories. A condition related to the “privatio lucis”, the lack of light, followed thereafter: the phenomenal black of what remains in the shadow. That what we can call the “creation starting from black” took place, therefore, in an unspecified, remote point in History and Time.
The exhibition, created by JELMONI STUDIO GALLERY, focuses on the research and the selection of emerging contemporary art, on its different and multifaceted forms of expression and its variety of genres, without ant restriction: from painting to sculpture, from photography to projections, everything finds its own place in this very unique exhibition space.
The CBK Amsterdam is a meeting place where Contemporary Art is central. It starts and encourages activities for a wide audience and works with organizations, schools and artists to make Art accessible. Thanks to its diverse programming, the CBK contributes to create an attractive cultural environment in Amsterdam and in its surroundings.The venue is settled in the heart of the cultural district of Arts, surrounded by a variety of organizations devotedto research and innovation. The CBK joins the cultural network by collaborating with a number of Institutions and Academies, in order to promote and stimulate the debate on the contemporary culture.This institution was created to present, collect, document and promote the most advanced artistic research. Since its inauguration, the CBK has been extensively engaged in exhibiting and documenting contemporary art and has also implemented many educational programs, shows and multimedia events. It has collected more than a thousand works of art that map art trends from the Sixties to the present day: painting, sculpture, cinema and videos, installations, works on paper, art books, photographs, graphics and various commissioned projects.The museum offers a dynamic perspective: it explores the present through a research-focused exhibition and helps to draw new ways following the most innovative experimental practices.
Project IntroductionIn the new millennium the art scene is global, and the epicenter of the new creative impulses are no longer just the big metropolis. New, smaller contexts with rich cultural traditions can fascinate the audience thanks to their original, innovative and dynamic art proposals.The last few years have been characterized by a "Nordic boom", i.e. an increased presence on the international scene of Scandinavian artists together with a strong upswing of museums and institutions for contemporary art in countries such as Holland, Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
