Frans Hals plays the starring role in the Frans Hals Museum’s permanent collection. It could hardly be otherwise. But this role is extremely varied. Hals will feature in this experimental collection exhibition in many ways.

To celebrate the opening of the new-look museum the meeting between original and imaginary paintings by Frans Hals and interpretations by art experts and artists are the central themes in Hof and Hal. A choir of different voices will resound throughout the exhibition: painters and photographers, curators and art historians will respond in individual and subjective ways to the paintings by the Haarlem virtuoso.

Contemporary artists like Anton Henning, Jasper Hagenaar, Shezad Dawood and Nina Katchadourian will use various paintings by Hals as starting points for new work. Rendezvous with Frans Hals will show how well Frans Hals’s civic guard paintings and portraits translate to the present.

The exhibition has been made possible by the Van Toorn Scholten Foundation and Mondriaan Fund.

Contributions to this exhibition by:
Hans Aarsman & Roy Villevoye, Laurence Aëgerter, Jan Andriesse, Mieke Bal, Michaël Borremans, Melanie Bühler, Shezad Dawood, Ann Demeester, Antoon Erftemeijer, Frans Grijzenhout, Claus Grimm, Jasper Hagenaar, Anton Henning, Nina Katchadourian, Kerry James Marshall, Norbert Middelkoop, Marrigje Rikken, Nedko Solakov, Anna Tummers, Gerdien Verschoor, Luuk Wilmering
