In Rotterdam, the second Dancing Museums artists residency will be hosted by Dansateliers, taking place in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and running parallel to the exhibition From Bosch to Bruegel - Uncovering Everyday Life. The exhibition uncovers everyday life in the sixteenth century: a world of brothels, skating parties, dancing peasants and quacks. 16th century society is depicted with irony and self-mockery in approximately forty paintings and equally as many prints.
The five dance artists will work in the Museum to further explore the subject of audience development, bringing together the three-dimensional body in movement alongside paintings of old masters in museum spaces. The artists will be offered an extensive programme with experts, such as Friso Lammertse, curator of the exhibition, visual artist Olphaert den Otter and Head of the education department of the National Gallery, Gill Hart.
