40-year anniversary – opening of special exhibitions on Sunday 9 June 2019 at 4pm

PRESENT – 40 Years of Galerie Marzee
To mark 40 years of Galerie Marzee we will be showing three exciting new exhibitions over the summer, together entitled Present.
For the first exhibition we have invited each of our artists to make a new piece to be shown in the gallery during the anniversary events. This diverse collection of jewellery and objects will represent an insightful snapshot of the many faces of contemporary jewellery and metalwork in 2019. Alongside this we will also have an exhibition of small wooden boxes in which the artists and friends of the gallery will present a personal gift for Marie-José – a piece of jewellery, an object, image, letter… intimate memories and treasures that will eventually enter the Marzee Collection. The third exhibition will show, for the first time, the jewellery collection of Jur and Thea van Lee-Ellis which they gifted to the Marzee Collection Foundation. This year would have marked Jur van Lee’s 100th birthday and this exhibition, which shows the entire collection comprising nearly 400 pieces including work by Onno Boekhoudt, Warwick Freeman, Marion Herbst, Otto Künzli, Emmy van Leersum, Annelies Planteijdt, Lucy Sarneel and many others, is held in his honour.

The anniversary shows will run from 9 June to 10 August 2019. Please join us for the anniversary festivities, and the opening of the exhibitions, from 4pm on Sunday 9 June.
