‘Three Crossings: El-Salahi, Hammons, Brouwn’ in Amsterdam

Starting 22 November, the Prince Claus Fund, together with the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts (AFK) present ‘Three Crossings: El-Salahi, Hammons, Brouwn’.

This three-part exhibition features works by Ibrahim El-Salahi (Sudan, UK), David Hammons (USA), and Stanley Brouwn (Surinam, Netherlands) at three Amsterdam locations. The works by these three visionary artists are innovative, minimalist, and sharply critical, yet infused with wit and humour. 

Conceived as multi-sited, this exhibition brings together works of three contemporary artists, the work of each installed in a different space in Amsterdam. The exhibition foregrounds each artist’s experimentation with the genre of the “artist’s book” yet also includes, in the cases of El Salahi and Brouwn, other relevant pieces that broaden our appreciation of their work. 

Join us for the opening on Thursday 23 November at the Prince Claus Fund Gallery in the presence of ‘Three Crossings’ curator Salah M. Hassan.

The opening of Brouwn’s exhibition at EENWERK on 22 November, El-Salahi’s work at the Prince Claus Fund Gallery on 23 November, and Hammons’ work at De Waalse Kerk on 25 November are each part of Amsterdam Art Weekend.
