“Gold”, exhibition curated by Aziz Bekkaoui at Catherijneconvent, Utrecht, The Netherlands

June 14, 2010 | No Comments

Exhibition “Gold” on display at the Catherijneconvent Utrecht, until 6 Januari 2011.

 Aziz’s vision of gold, the most desired metal since time immemorial!
Protecting, adoring, symbol, power & show are theme’s where gold is related with. Sometimes symbolic and sometimes as a true fact. Crowns, sceptres, icons, masks, olympic medals, even an Ipod or day-crème are made of or added with gold!

Azziz Bekkaoui, Dutch fashion designer, takes the museum collection as startingpoint and adds unpredicted prick goods from the past and modern daily life to it. For more information, please take a look at the site of Catherijneconvent.
Every sunday at 14.00 “Making jewellery & Masks  Workshop” for the children.
