Het HEM is reopening Chapter 3HREE Maarten Spruyt from June 27th on. The exhibition can be visited on the last weekend of June, all weekends in July and the first weekend in August on Saturday and Sunday from 1pm until 8pm.
Thanks to the generous donations made to our ‘Shoot Us With Love!’ crowd funding campaign we can re-open our doors to Chapter 3HREE Maarten Spruyt to the public. Most of the exhibited artists have been so charitable to leave their works for a period longer. Unfortunatelly th works from Ivana Basic and Cyprien Guillard are no longer exhibited here. It is necessary to make a time slot reservation for Chapter 3HREE via our ticket page.
If we succeed in finding sufficient structural support, we will resume our own programme in 2021 and return in March with Chapter 4OUR and 5IVE, in collaboration with Simon(e) van Saarloos and Rem Koolhaas / Samir Bantal respectively.
Het HEM is a home for contemporary culture, situated in a former munitions factory on the Hembrug site in Zaandam.

The drawings in the exhibition are early work. They are all chalk drawings with a repetitive pattern of lines or strips, descending from light to dark.
Christie van der Haak (1950, the Netherlands) is best known as the designer of a collection of fabrics with colourful ornaments and richly detailed patterns. Her works have been used as wall coverings and upholstery as well as autonomous works of art. Since working with computer-controlled weaving machines, she was able to skip painting from that moment on.
