Reading a Wave
Marinus Boezem & Noor Nuyten
Upstream Gallery proudly presents a duo exhibition with works by Marinus Boezem and Noor Nuyten. Marinus Boezem (1934, NL) belongs, together with Jan Dibbets and Ger van Elk, among the most important representatives of the Conceptual Art and Arte Povera movement in The Netherlands. In the 1960s, Boezem discovered that he could use elusive elements such as air, weather, movement and light as visual materials and made a name with radical, immaterial works that were far ahead of their time. Noor Nuyten (1986, NL) creates conceptual works that appeal strongly to the imagination of the viewer. Nuyten is artistically akin to the movement of conceptual artists from the late 1960’s, but at the same time her work is undeniably contemporary.
