Eight Cubic Meters by Karly Gerharts

12 May - 5 June 2022

Sint Nicolaasstraat, Amsterdam

The exhibition In Clover opens on Thursday 12 May at 5pm in front of the gallery on Sint Nicolaasstraat in Amsterdam. Printed versions of their maps and writings will be handed out.

In Clover is the first exhibition to emerge out of the Art Nouvhoes research project, and it takes as its major source of inspiration the architecture, ornamentation, and symbolism of central Amsterdam. The windows of the gallery will be filled with collaged textiles and graphic elements created by artists Limo Hair and Michelle Parrott. 

The exhibition is accompanied by a self-guided walking tour of the area with musings by Max Bouttell. A map of curated locations will lead you around the Binnenstad neighborhood and direct your attention to some easily overlooked instance of ornamentation.
