Newsletter December 2017


ReView still drawing many visitors

At the end of November we welcomed our 100,000th visitor of the year! Now already half of this can attributed to our anniversary exhibition ReView, which will no doubt be the best-attended exhibition in the museum's history. Don't miss this remarkable survey of works from the past twenty-five years of De Pont! read more


Rita McBride's White Elephant has left Tilburg for a while. The sculpture is on loan to Explorer, a major retrospective of McBride's work being held at WIELS in Brussels. There it will be on view until 7 January 2018. read more

We'll also have to miss three of our family portraits by Thomas Struth for a time. But in exchange for these, we will be receiving beautiful loans from the Kunstmuseum in Bonn. There the portraits will be part of the permanent display until the end of 2019. Hanging in ReView, however, is Struth's impressive portrait The Felsenfeld/Gold Family, from Philadelphia.

Thursday evening is HappyHour@depont

Every Thursday evening, from 5 to 8 pm, admission to the museum is free! At 5:15 pm someone from De Pont tells about a part of the anniversary exhibition ReView. Let yourself be surprised and take a moment to contemplate one of the museum's many treasures.
