A tribute to Ed Dukkers at Tribal Design
Tribal Design shows her most recent Tribal acquisitions in combination with works by Dutch artist Ed Dukkers. (1923-1996). In 1946 Willem Sandberg, director of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, selected him for the exhibition ‘Ten young painters’, in which Appel, Corneille and Rooskens, among others, also participated.
As with many at that time, expressionist tendencies can also be observed in Dukker’s work, but soon his work shows his interest in literary, surrealistic themes, in which death, eroticism and ritual are closely intertwined. Now, Tribal Design is proud to exhibit the work of this intriguing artist.
The exhibition will open on Saturday 21 January and will be on view till Saturday 8 April 27.
Tribal Design celebrates its 25th anniversary
Twenty-five years of Tribal Design: from a small but elegant gallery in the Nieuwe Spiegelstraat in 1998, to a mature space on the Spiegelgracht in the roaring art district of Amsterdam. Twenty -five years of joy in organizing thematic exhibitions and participating in many art fairs in the Netherlands and abroad. But above all: the pleasure of meeting all these fine collectors and collegues with a shared interest in Tribal art. This year we will celebrate this event organizing special exhibitions showing fine pieces of tribal art in combination with modern art, starting with the Tribute to Dutch painter Ed Dukkers in january.
