A year at the Stedelijk: Tino Sehgal
AMMODO ✕ Stedelijk Museum
1 January - 31 December 2015

The exhibition A year at the Stedelijk: Tino Sehgal is the first major retrospective of British/German artist Tino Sehgal (1976 ) at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. For each month of the year, one or more of Sehgal’s works or ‘situations’ will be presented at various locations in the museum. For Sehgal, an artwork consists of a live encounter between artwork and viewer. Sehgal creates ‘situations’ within the museum space, in which interpreters enact choreographed actions and occasionally converse with visitors. The exhibition will include the situations This is propaganda (2002), Kiss (2002) and This occupation (2005). Ammodo provides support to A year at the Stedelijk: Tino Sehgal in order to make this unique retrospective possible.

Next Level
AMMODO ✕ FOAM
August 2015 - present

Since 2015 Foam presents a four-year exhibition series Next Level during the Unseen Photo Fair. Foam has chosen Next Level as a way of offering promising talented artists the opportunity to develop new work and increase their public recognition. The museum annually offers one artist the opportunity to organise his/her first major solo exhibition. Selection is conditional upon the artist having already proved him/herself and showing that he/she is innovative in the use of the medium of photography. The first two artists who have been invited to take part in the series are Anne De Vries (The Hague, 1977) and Melanie Bonajo (Heerlen, 1978). They have been asked to create new work for the exhibition. Ammodo supports Next Level because the series contributes to the creation of new work, the development of the participating artists and the display of their work to an international audience.
