Exhibition

The New Garden

Exhibition

10 May 2015 — 31 Dec 2017

Construction of The New Garden started in the spring of 2015 on the outdoor area around Het Nieuwe Instituut. Artist/designer Frank Bruggeman and ecological gardener Hans Engelbrecht have developed a plan to turn the strip of grass along Jongkindstraat into a place of encounter set amidst vegetation. At the same time, reeds and water-purifying plants breathe life into the pond in front of the building. In addition, The New Garden will connect with the Arcade, the covered space along Rochussenstraat, thus also enlivening this desolate side of the building.

Exhibition

Architecture and Interiors. The Desire for Style

Exhibition in The Hague

10 Jun — 17 Sep 2017

The architecture and interiors of De Stijl are famous around the world. Dutch architects and designers like Gerrit Rietveld, Theo van Doesburg, Cornelis van Eesteren and J.J.P. Oud blazed the trail for generations of progressive thinkers who came after them. The historical roots of De Stijl are less well-known. This summer, the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and Het Nieuwe Instituut present an overview of drawings, architectural models and examples of furniture by members of the influential art movement. Exhibited side by side for the first time ever, the works offer surprising insights: what seems simple and straightforward at first sight proves to be ambiguous and complex. And what appears new may turn out not to have been.

Exhibition

Het Nieuwe Instituut and De Stijl

Pop-in Expo

11 Jul — 03 Sep 2017

To mark the De Stijl centenary, which is being celebrated under the theme 100 years of De Stijl. From Mondriaan to Dutch Design, PostNL has joined forces with Het Nieuwe Instituut and The Gemeentemuseum in The Hague to produce a set of ten postage stamps. The De Stijl stamps bear images of masterpieces from both museums’ collections. This summer’s ‘pop-in expo’ at Het Nieuwe Instituut will show the context in which this stamp collection, designed by PutGootink designers, was made. The exhibition contains a film about the process of making the stamps, a masterpiece from the Theo van Doesburg collection, and a contemporary wallpaper design inspired by De Stijl.
