Marcel van Eeden Talk at UMN
Marcel van Eeden will present his work in conjunction with the Department of Art’s exchange program with the State Academy of Art in Karlsruhe, Germany, where he teaches in the area of Drawing and Painting. Dutch-born Marcel van Eeden lives and works in Switzerland, Germany, and the Netherlands. He is known for black-and-white charcoal drawings and graphically powerful work. Van Eeden uses historical documents and found imagery, including photographs, exhibition catalogues, newspaper clippings, magazines, and illustrations, as a basis for his work.
Van Eeden has exhibited all over Europe in both group and solo exhibitions. The many venues in which he has shown his work include InSitu (Paris), Martin-Gropius-Bau (Berlin), Clint Roenisch Gallery (Toronto), Gallery Zink (Munich), and Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam). The Visiting Artists and Critics Program fosters greater understanding and appreciation for contemporary art through dialogue. Artists of national significance working in all media are invited to the Department of Art to present public lectures and meet with students.
