I recently visited Heartland exhibition in the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven. It is a multidisciplinary project that focuses on art and music of the geographical heart of the United States of America: the so called Heartland. Some of the artists were invited to Netherlands to produce their work here especially for the exhibition. The exhibition was purposely planned at the same time as the American president elections. It’s the time when we, Europeans are more focused on the USA than usual. Quite a few of the works caught my attention and even fascinated me.
Here are some pictures from the show.
