art, architecture and the city
Cityscapes is a new gallery focussing on the interfaces of art, architecture and the city. Cityscapes considers architecture as art and the city as work of art. The development of the city of the 21e century is primarely a technical and social challenge. But the emerging global metropolis is above all a cultural project. Art has always been essential for urbanity. Now the radical urban environment calls for artistic interventions more than ever.
Cityscapes Gallery offers a platform for artists with different backgrounds (architects - visual artists - photographers) who share a genuine fascination for the contemporary urban environment. Cityscapes artists show an original view on the contemporary city and a distinct imagination. The art offer is divers: drawings, paintings, prints, models, installations, photo’s, video’s etc. The selection is primarily based on artistic quality.
Cityscapes Gallery regularly organizes exhibitions in which we explore the city of the 21e century. How do artists with different artistic perspectives reflect on the worldwide urban condition? How do they depict the cityscape of the 21e century? Cityscapes starts as a flying gallery. Exhibitions will be organized on different locations in the Netherlands and abroad.
starts in January 2013 with the Cityscapes Artlease program: art-lease, art-rent and art-arrangements
for companies and private clients. Cityscapes offers full service
contracts, including transport, fitment, insurance and maintenance of the
