Aimée Zito Lema: Here Is Where We Meet

Exhibition
15 April - 22 August 2021
Oude Kerk Amsterdam

In the past three years, Zito Lema has investigated two conflict situations of which the Oude Kerk forms the centre: the Beeldenstorm (roughly: ‘image storm’) of 1566 and the recent resistance to a red stained glass window. The traces left behind by both conflicts form the starting point for Zito Lema’s new work, which consists of photography, sculptures, textile works, poetry and an installation with basins.

Holland Festival

Performing Arts

The creation of new work is essential for theatre practitioners at all stages of their careers. By creating such new work an artist can reinvent him or herself, explore the limits of their own abilities and experiment with form and content, all of which contributes to the artistic development. To make the creation of new works in the field of performing arts possible Ammodo entered into a long-term collaboration with the Holland Festival back in 2013. Visit this page to see which productions in 2021 are supported by Ammodo.

Remember Me

Remember Me

Exhibition
01 October 2021 - 16 January 2022
Rijksmuseum

Portraits make the absent present and remind us of those whom we wish to commemorate when they are no longer with us. Those have been the two main functions of portraits since classical times. This was perpetuated when portraiture entered on its first great flowering around 1500, both north and south of the Alps. Be it those dear to us, a celebrity or a donor venerating a saint, the sitter is speaking to the viewer with the words ‘Do not forget me’.
