Arrival of Spring LIVE is an ode to spring. On 20, 21 and 22 March 2019, Hockney’s painting 'The Arrival of Spring' comes to life in a free light show on Amsterdam’s Museumplein.
The light art from video artists collective Blauwe Uur and live music from Dutch harpist Remy van Kesteren, will turn a cool winter evening on Museumplein into a vibrant spring day. Especially for The Arrival of Spring LIVE light show, Remy recomposed a track from his new album Shadows.
The light show starts at 8 pm and lasts approximately 20 minutes. Entrance is free. The Arrival of Spring LIVE was made possible thanks to the support of Van Lanschot.
Remy van Kesteren
Remy van Kesteren: ‘The piece is inspired by David Hockney’s paintings. His work and his colours have an almost hallucinogenic quality. I met him earlier this month at the opening of the exhibition, when I also performed the song. That was quite something!’
On 20 and 21 March 2019, Remy van Kesteren will perform live at 8 pm and 8:45 pm. His music will be played on 22 March, although Remy will not perform live.
Arrival of Spring LIVE was made possible with the generous support of Van Lanschot, partner of the Van Gogh Museum since 2015.
Sander Kloots, Head of Sponsoring at Van Lanschot: ‘Since the 19th century, supporting art, culture, artists and museums has allowed Van Lanschot to contribute to preserving and strengthening our cultural capital. Seeing, listening, experiencing and sharing are all elements that underlie our vision. The Arrival of Spring LIVE performance dovetails with this vision and we are proud to contribute to the project’.
Thanks to the support of Van Lanschot, visitors have the opportunity to view the exhibition for free between 6 and 10 pm on 20 and 21 March.
