DESCRIPTION

La La La Human Steps is an exhibition of works from the collection of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, the internationally renowned fine arts museum in the Netherlands. Founded in 1849, the museum in Rotterdam has a large international collection of modern and contemporary artworks as well as old master paintings, prints and drawings.

The exhibition reflects on human relationships and genuine human conditions such as, desire, failure, despair, curiosity, betrayal and confrontations. Featuring the works of 28 prominent artists from different geographies and periods, La La La Human Steps translates these themes at three levels:

Encounters in History

Personal Encounters

Public Encounters

Organized within the framework of the celebrations of 400 years of diplomatic relations between the Netherlands and Turkey, the exhibition is curated by Sjarel Ex, Director of the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen.
