"BAAS IS IN TOWN" (Milan)
The newest solo show by Maarten Baas opens next week during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan. Presented in a theatrical setting, this exhibition shows, more than ever, the unique position between design, art and theatre in which Baas has been working for the past decade.
“We’ll show a wild mix of objects varying from exclusive new products, to improvised mock-ups in polystyrene foam, all in the theme of the magnificent world of entertainment, circus and furniture fairs,” is Marten Baas' own description of his show opening in Milan next week.
Many of the exhibited projects are the result of collaborations with artists, designers and other companies. Bertjan Pot and fashion designer Walter van Beirendonck, for example, as well as artists like Teun Hocks and John Körmeling. These collaborations are supported by the Centraal Museum Utrecht, the Netherlands.
The exhibition also features a preview of Baas' latest public space design: Koopgoot Collection. This collection represents especially made public furniture for the"‘Koopgoot", the main shopping street of Rotterdam.
Also, new works by Baas for Carpenters Workshop Gallery are on show for the first time. After Milan, the BAAS IS IN TOWN circus will travel on to Paris and London for exhibitions with Carpenters Workshop Gallery.
BAAS IS IN TOWN by Maarten Baas in coproduction with 5 VIE and in collaboration with Ventura Projects.
