Rietveld, LeWitt, De Wet

Neil Pendock November 16, 2012 0

Sometime Issey Miyake model and performance artist Barend de Wet (below, in black beret) was papped at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam yesterday, outside the Gerrit Rietveld installation. In spite of being 80 years old, the Rietveld room remains remarkably modern. I wonder if Barend was planning an intervention on the bed?

Certainly, his conceptual formalism would accord well with the Rietveld dynamic

Rietveld room

In the same way that the hat of this colourful gallery visitor

matches the wonderful Sol LeWitt. How thoughtful to dress to match the paintings on show.
