COOPERATION

Partnership


To share the art collection with the public, the JK Art Foundation collaborates with various partners. As the collection has its origins in North Brabant, it is no surprise that the Foundation and Het Noordbrabants Museum have found each other. The two share the goal of making art accessible to a wide audience. In the past, this collaboration has resulted in high-profile exhibitions such as ‘Zero!’ and ‘Kunst in Nederland tussen 1910-1925’ (‘Art in the Netherlands from 1910 to 1925’).


In 2021 The JK Art Foundation and Het Noordbrabants Museum have decided to further intensify their collaboration. From now on, the Foundation will make works of art available on long-term or permanent loan. This means that the public will be able to enjoy works from the JK Art Foundation’s carefully curated collection even more often. More information about this special collaboration can be found on the website of Het Noordbrabants Museum.

 

Works from the Foundation’s collection can be admired in the museum throughout the year. The Quist Wing on the ground floor of Het Noordbrabants Museum, for example, features rotating presentations. Modern and contemporary works of art from the Foundation’s collection are combined with works from the permanent collection of Het Noordbrabants Museum. A large still life by Frans Ykens currently adorns the walls of the first floor, and Peter Paul Rubens’ Two Studies of the Head of a Man sits alongside other masterpieces from the museum’s permanent collection. The current exhibition will run until 12 September 2023. 


A highlight was the exhibition ‘Discovering Modernity’, which featured a selection of over 90 works from the JK Art Foundation collection. This exhibition took place at the Singer Museum in Laren from 17 August to 28 November 2021 and then at Het Noordbrabants Museum in ’s-Hertogenbosch from 9 September 2021 to 19 June 2022.
