 Naked City is a new art installation by Lloyd Corporation, exploring how people make use of public spaces to voice and contest issues of freedom, democracy, and power.

Naked City can be seen from November 30th on a fencing structure of De Egelantier (Gasthuisvest 47, Haarlem), around the corner from Frans Hals Museum location HOF.

During a period of research in the aftermath of the national coronavirus lockdowns, Lloyd Corporation spent time documenting and collecting the notices, adverts, and stickers they found in the streets of Haarlem and its surroundings.

For Naked City the artists have taken a selection of these street notices as the basis for a series of large-scale hand-painted and printed panels, highlighting specific texts and graphics from the original notices.

Through their artworks, Lloyd Corporation (Ali Eisa and Sebastian Lloyd Rees) explore how found objects can tell stories about the social, political, and economic forces that shape society.

As the art museum of the city of Haarlem, the Frans Hals Museum commissions artists. The museum has asked Lloyd Corporation to develop a work of art that opens up to overlooked voices and places in Haarlem. At De Egelantier, the museum and artists share the result with all residents and visitors of the city.

This project is a collaboration with De Egelantier (part of Hotel Arena, Amsterdam).
