press release

Bourgeois Leftovers, the exhibition of the 2012-2013 de Appel Curatorial Programme, hosts a group of unlikely conversation partners at de Appel arts centre. From 20 April-16 June, 2013, the exhibition presents thirty-two Dutch genre paintings from the Van Abbemuseum collection together with commissions and contributions from nineteen contemporary artists. Produced between c. 1910 and 1939, many of the presented still lifes, landscapes, and portraits were part of the founding collection of the Van Abbemuseum, donated by cigar manufacturer Henri van Abbe in 1936. At present, they have been leftover from the museum's current collection display.

With contributions by Ayreen Anastas & Rene Gabri, Ruth Buchanan, Jota Castro, Dina Danish, Lydia Davis, Judith Deschamps, Marlene Dumas, Chris Evans, Will Holder, Jugedamos, Alison Knowles, Matthieu Laurette, Gabriel Lester, Daragh Reeves, Barbara Visser, and Timmy van Zoelen.

Curators: Karima Boudou (1987, FR/MA), Kari Cwynar (1985, CA), Angela Jerardi (1979, US), Srajana Kaikini (1986, IN), Florencia Portocarrero (1981, PE), and Alexandra Stock (1982, CH/US)

With special thanks to the Van Abbemuseum, the city of Eindhoven, Institut Fran├žais, and all Voordekunst contributors.
