Willem van Genk Laurenskerk

Weisbard exhibits art from Willem van Genk

Willem Van Genk is an Outsider Artist, he created art as a way of ordering chaos and of protecting himself from harm. From October 14 his work will be on display at Weisbard in Little C.

Willem van Genk (1927-2005) is considered the best outsider artist in the Netherlands. Although the Rijksmuseum and Stedelijk Amsterdam own work by him and his 2019 exhibition WOEST at the Hermitage was well attended, the artist is relatively unknown.

Weisbard is showing four works by Van Genk during the exhibition. Two Rotterdam subjects (the Stadhuis/Coolsingel and the Laurenskerk) have never been shown in public. Certified small stone prints by Van Genk are for sale at the gallery. The exhibition also includes work by Sam den Otter (UNIT Academy Nijmegen) and Lionel Plak (self-taught).

The exhibition is on display until November 4 at the Karl Weisbardstraat 175.
