WITH ALL DUE RESPECT

ArtEZ Oude Kraan 26, Arnhem

ARTEZ BEAR FINALS 2018

With all due respect, maybe you could have a closer look. Yes, indeed, you overlooked. No worries. No, no, we are not very loud, but we are here and we have something to say.
You expected something different? Yes, we can imagine. Ah beauty, indeed, you came here looking for beauty? With all due respect, art is not the icing on the boring cupcake of reality.
Difficult, yes, it is not always easy to encounter art. With all due respect, if art was easy, it would mean that it was familiar, something you knew or saw before. Art is something out of the ordinary that takes effort, always.
The self-contained artist, the weird individual, you like to hear stories about him? With all due respect, in art respect for something outside oneself is always there, for a subject matter, for material for thoughts, however respect is impossible without willfulness.
What the overall theme of this exhibition is? The core of my curatorial statement? With all due respect, what could I possibly add…
