Out of Storage, a distinctive contemporary art project
Out of Storage offers a glimpse of the dynamics within a collecting art institute and reveals functions that usually take place behind closed doors. The visitor can take several routes through the exhibition, allowing him to share the view of diverse experts in order to gain insight into the various functions of FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais, such as restoration, education, research and presentation.
Why art from FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais?
The collection of FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais is one of the most important collections of contemporary art in France and consists of approximately 1,500 works, of which hundreds will be shown in Maastricht. The collection includes works from movements such as Arte
Povera, Minimal Art, Conceptual Art, New Realism, Pop Art and Fluxus. Out of Storage also includes works that are generously made available from the H+F Collection. Spearhead of the collection policy of director Hilde Teerlinck is the acquisition of socially engaged art, which encourages reflective thought and the development of a critical attitude.
