Italo disco, seen by many as the ultimate dance music, is going through an immense revival in the current DJ scene and hence in the music, fashion, art and design scenes. Artist MC de Waal, an italo-fanatic from the start, responds to this new wave of interest as curator of a group exhibition about the dogma of the italo disco. At the opening, the curator will give a performance as Maxime Duvall in which the 12” inch-maxi-single 'Raining In My Heart' will be presented.

My Name Is Sander Dekker

Sander Dekker

02-30.06.2018

On Saturday the 2nd of June opens My Name Is Sander Dekker, a solo exhibition by

photographer Sander Dekker at TORCH gallery in Amsterdam. One part of the exhibition

shows photo's that belong to the ongoing series 'The Project', while the other part is an

installation called 'TenFifteen', consisting of thousands of tiny photographs. The style of

Dekker is easily recognizable, due to his working method that could be described as

spontaneous and playful. When shooting, Dekker does not know how the photos will turn

out in the end, as he always tries to capture the unexpected.

On Saturday the 14th of April opens The Worst Is Yet To Come: relics from a recent past (clock doesn't say 3:46 pm), a solo exhibition of TINKEBELL. at TORCH gallery in Amsterdam. Over the past twenty years TINKEBELL. has made it her personal mission to save the world. To achieve this goal, she initiated diverse and frequently controversial projects, all over the world, not often left undiscussed by the media. The physical remainings of these activities she turned into art objects, called 'relics'. They go from old personal documents, photos, the packages of painkillers she took after her sterilisation, the human bones she brought back from the ground of the collapsed textile factories 'Rana Plaza' (Bangladesh) till clocks (that doesn't say 3:46 pm) and the plants she picked in the affected zones of Fukushima and much more. In this exhibition, a selection of these relics is shown to the public.

Unreal

Thijs Zweers

10.03.2018 – 21.04.2018

Extra event on 9th of March 6 pm at the Oedipus Taproom: Launch of the beer

Unreal’, a collaboration between Oedipus Brewing and Thijs Zweers.

 

On Saturday the 10th of March opens Unreal, the second solo exhibition of Thijs Zweers at

TORCH gallery in Amsterdam. Once again Zweers presents black powerful drawings made with

Siberian chalk and charcoal, in which he examines the boundaries between our world and the

virtual one. In a time when people spend more and more time in front of screens, looking towards

realistic representations of what is actually around us, the certainty of what is real and what is not,

disappears slowly.

Acid Flowers
Louise te Poele

27.01 - 03.03.2018

 

Acid Flowers, the second solo-exhibition of Dutch photographer Louise te Poele for TORCH gallery in Amsterdam, will open on Saturday the 27th of January between 5-7pm. With this exhibition, Louise will introduce a new body of work by means of a spectacular gallery-filling installation. Where her previous work was made in the spirit of the 17th century Dutch masters of the still life, these new pieces are futuristic flower arrangements bathing in bright neon lights. She orchestrates wondrous compositions of found objects that playfully disrupt suggestions of movement, scale and vanitas. After the opening the exhibition will be on view until Saturday the third of March.
