Exhibition at Arti et Amicitiae
as a prelude to the centennial of De Stijl

From 7–23 October 2016 works by the art collective Rhythm Section will be exhibited in the great room of Arti et Amicitae in Amsterdam. The exhibition ‘Boogie Woogie Rhythm Section’ is a prelude to the centennial of De Stijl.

Rhythm Section is a group of artists who focus on rhythm in the visual arts. The group exhibits in ever-changing composition throughout the world, not only in Europe but also in China, Iran and Georgia. The group connects with local artists on site who sometimes travel for a while with the group or become members.

In Arti et Amicitiae the artists of Rhythm Section will present both autonomous work and large murals, which relate to the forthcoming centennial of the De Stijl movement, founded in 1917. The artists of Rhythm Section, who feel closely related to De Stijl, use abstract, rhythm-based imagery too.

The artists participating in the exhibition are Anneke Bosma (NL), Karina Bugayova (DE), Christoph Dahlhausen (DE), Iemke van Dijk (NL), Daniel Geiger (DE), Henriëtte van ’t Hoog (NL), Oleksiy Koval (DE), Guido Nieuwendijk (NL), Marije Vermeulen (NL), Veronika Wenger (DE), Guido Winkler (NL) and Michael Wright (GB).

De Stijl artist Piet Mondrian was inspired by the new music, jazz. Rhythm Section members have an affinity with Mondrian’s search toward an abstract language of expression. Shortly before 1917, Mondrian wrote, “The rhythm of the relationships between colours and lines enables the universal to reveal itself within the relativity of time and space.” Oleksiy Koval, the founder of Rhythm Section, has based his work on this idea.

Art historian Wies van Moorsel, a cousin of Nelly van Doesburg, will open the exhibition on Friday, October 7th at 8:00 pm. The Beautiful Formula Collective will perform during the opening. Four of the members of the group will construct an abstract mural, in which they interact with each other.

The exhibition moves to Reuten Gallery in Amsterdam in January 2017, and then to Galerie Karin Wimmer in Munich in November 2017, where the catalogue will be presented.

Curated by Henriëtte van ’t Hoog, Oleksy Koval and Dmytro Goncharenko
