Kunstmuseum Den Haag 'Paula Rego', Kunstmuseum The Hague, 2021-2022
Portuguese-British artist Paula Rego's (Lisbon, 1935) oeuvre spans decades and deals with topical themes such as colonial history and feminism. Her early work is often politically tinted and directed against the dictatorial regime of Portuguese Prime Minister António de Oliveira Salazar (1932-1968). Her later work is in the style of magical realism, with family suffering, family relationships and the dominant role of women as central themes. Paula Rego is a star in the United Kingdom, but she has never had a solo exhibition devoted to her work in the Netherlands. Which is why the Kunstmuseum Den Haag has organised an overview of Paula Rego's life and work, based on an impressive 70 works (from Tate Britain and Portuguese museums and private collections, including the Calouste Gulbenkian).

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 30,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 27 November 2021 to 20 March 2022.

Limburgs Museum 'The Forgotten Princesses of Thorn', Limburgs Museum, Venlo, 2021-2022
Until the end of the eighteenth century, part of the small town of Thorn was home to a convent: an ecclesiastical institution which only hosted unmarried ladies of high nobility. The convent ladies were unusual women in their time: they were independent, elected one of their number as the 'princess-abbess', ruled over their mini-state and were welcome guests at European courts. The exhibition 'The Forgotten Princesses of Thorn' at the Limburgs Museum gives insight into the history of the convent and its inhabitants in the period 1700 to 1794, based on the biographies of three princess-abbesses. A total of more than 200 loans from approximately 50 lenders from museums and private collections in the Netherlands and abroad will feature in the exhibition, including paintings, trinkets, medals, marriage certificates, jewellery, clothing and furniture.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 30,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 1 October 2021 and 3 April 2022.

Frans Hals Museum Exhibition 'At Home with Jordaens', Frans Hals Museum, 2021-2022
The Frans Hals Museum is devoting an exhibition to the Flemish painter Jacob Jordaens (1593-1678), one of the giants of Antwerp Baroque painting alongside Rubens and Van Dyck. A total of about 30 pieces by Jordaens belonging to the Phoebus Foundation, a private art foundation in Antwerp, are being exhibited in Haarlem. The highlight of the exhibition is the reconstruction of the - partly lost - reception room in Jordaens' house, where he had painted the walls and ceiling with scenes from the mythological story of Amor and Psyche.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €30,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 15 October 2021 and 30 January 2022.

Museum Paul Tetar van Elven Exhibition 'Thérèse Schwartze. Her Customer was King', Paul Tetar van Elven Museum, 2021-2022
Paul Tetar van Elven Museum was founded in 1927 and is located on the Koornmarkt in Delft, in the former home of the painter Paul Tetar van Elven (1823-1896). The museum is organising an exhibition on Thérèse Schwartze's work (1815-1918), who was a contemporary of Tetar van Elven and specialised in portrait painting. Schwartze's freer, modern work is combined and compared with the somewhat more conservative academy painter Tetar van Elven's work. A total of approximately 30 pieces (mainly portraits) by Thérèse Schwartze are being exhibited in Delft. The pieces are from Dutch museums and private collections.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €5,000 towards this exhibition, which will be on view from 6 November 2021 to 17 February 2022.





Rijksmuseum Volkenkunde 'Aztecs. The People behind the Myths', Museum Volkenkunde, Leiden, 2021-2022
2021 will mark the 500th anniversary of the Spanish conquest which brought an end to the Aztec empire. Museum Volkenkunde is taking this opportunity to organise the first major Dutch exhibition on the Aztecs, one of the most iconic civilisations in world history. The highlight of the exhibition will be 128 unique works from Mexico that have never before been seen outside Mexico: recently excavated offerings, imposing statues of Aztec gods such as the god Mictlantecuhtli, mythical therianthropic earthenware figures, gold jewellery and drawings in codices. The works from Mexico will be supplemented with masterpieces from the museum's own collection and various European collections.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €30,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 5 August 2021 to 20 February 2022.

Design Museum Den Bosch 'Lucio Fontana - The Conquest of Space', Design Museum Den Bosch, 2021-2022
The avant-garde artist Lucio Fontana (1899-1968) is best known for his monochrome paintings with vertical cuts. This departed from the notion of a painting as a flat painted surface on which space is suggested. The Design Museum Den Bosch is organising an exhibition displaying work from Fontana's entire oeuvre and discussing his ideas about the conception of space in the various disciplines. The museum exhibits ceramic objects, paintings, lights, spatial installations and design. In addition to twenty works from the museum's own collection, many European loans will be on display.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €20,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 2 October 2021 to 23 January 2022.

Van Abbemuseum 'Face to Face with Gustav Klimt', Van Abbemuseum, 2020-2021
The Austrian artist Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) lived and worked in Vienna's belle époque, a period of unparalleled artistic achievement. In Face to Face with Gustav Klimt, the Van Abbemuseum is displaying drawings and paintings by the artist in an especially designed space. The most important work from Vienna is Beethoven Frieze. Klimt designed this artwork in 1902 for the Vienna Secessionist exhibition honouring Beethoven's ninth symphony and painted the frieze directly on the walls of the Vienna Secession Building. The Belvedère Museum recently had an exact copy of the frieze made and this high-quality, life-size facsimile (more than two-metres tall and 34-metres long) is on display for the first time at the Van Abbemuseum, as the centrepiece of and backdrop to the exhibition Face to Face with Gustav Klimt.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €15,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 3 March and 31 June 2021.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €25,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 9 October 2020 and 10 January 2021.

Rembrandthuis 'Hansken. Rembrandt's Elephant', Rembrandt House Museum, 2021
The elephant called Hansken travelled around Europe with her owner from 1633 to 1655 and was a spectacle wherever she went. Rembrandt van Rijn sketched her when she visited Amsterdam. The Rembrandt House Museum is devoting an exhibition to this special elephant and illustrating her history with etchings, maps, globes, and natural history specimens. Rembrandt's drawings of Hansken (Albertina, Vienna) and Hansken's skull (Museo della Specola, Florence) are being brought to Amsterdam. For the marketing and education related to the exhibition, the museum is collaborating with Artis Zoo and the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW).

The Turing Foundation is contributing €17,500 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 1 May and 8 August 2021.

Centraal Museum Exhibition 'The Botanical Revolution - About the Necessity of Art and Gardening', Centraal Museum, 2021-2022
In the exhibition About the Necessity of Art and Gardening, the Centraal Museum is exploring how gardens have served as a microcosm and metaphor of society in different ways. A cross section of work from art history - old art, modern art and very recent (commissioned) work by contemporary artists - is used to sketch the development of the relationship between nature and culture. Key pieces from the museum collection, including Abraham Bloemaert's Adam and Eve in Paradise (1604) and flower still lifes by Roeland Saverij, are being combined with loans from collections in the Netherlands and abroad. The highlight of the exhibition is Caspar David Friedrich's painting Cemetery Entrance (1825), representing death and the end of the cycle of nature.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €20,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 10 September 2021 and 9 January 2022. The contribution is earmarked for the loan costs of Caspar David Friedrich's painting Cemetery Entrance (1825) from the Staatlichen Kunstsammlungen Dresden collection.

Vereniging Het Spinozahuis Spinoza's Daily Life, Spinoza House, The Hague 2020-2021
Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677), one of the world's greatest thinkers, was co-founder of rationalism and one of the founding fathers of modern philosophy. The greatest Dutch philosopher was born in Amsterdam and lived in the vicinity of The Hague during his working life. He spent the last seven years of his life at Paviljoensgracht 72-74 in The Hague. This seventeenth-century house still has a largely monumental interior and contains a special collection of books by and about Spinoza. The Spinozahuis Association intends to open the Spinoza House to the public so that visitors can see how the great man lived and worked. The plan is to develop three functions: a museum about Spinoza, a reception and presentation area, and a study centre and library.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €3,000 towards this project.

Van Abbemuseum Parallel Lives, Parallel Aesthetics: Léon Ferrari and Gülsün Karamustafa, Van Abbemuseum, 2021-2022
Parallel Lives, Parallel Aesthetics is a combination of two solo exhibitions: a large retrospective of León Ferrari (3 September 1920 - 25 July 2013, Buenos Aires) and an overview of Gülsün Karamustafa's (1946, Ankara) work to date. León Ferrari is one of Argentina's most celebrated contemporary artists. He won the Lion D'Or at the Venice Biennale in 2007 and the opening of the exhibition in 2021 marks the moment that the Van Abbemuseum will receive a donation from the Ferrari family, consisting of fourteen works. Gülsün Karamustafa, who won the Prince Claus Award in 2014, is one of the leading lights of contemporary Turkish art and an important figure in the struggle for recognition of female artists.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €15,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 27 November 2021 and 13 March 2022.

Vereniging Rembrandt The power of our Dutch collections, 2020-2021
The Rembrandt Association is committed to protecting and enriching Dutch public art collections. It was founded in 1883 and now has more than 15,000 members. As an independent, private organisation, the association not only assesses the importance to individual museum collections, but also the importance to the entire Dutch public art collection. Its guiding principle is that valuable art ought to be shared with everyone.

The Rembrandt Association and the Turing Foundation are each contributing €175,000 towards the special initiative 'The power of our Dutch collections'. This campaign gives art museums the opportunity to request a contribution of up to €10,000 towards the design of a presentation based on one or several works in their own collection when they re-open after the corona lockdown. The campaign aims to inspire and revitalise the museums and draw attention to the richness of their own collections.

Museum Catharijneconvent 'Maria Magdalene', Museum Catharijneconvent, 2021-2022
Museum Catharijneconvent presents the aesthetic, cultural and historical values of Christian and other religious heritage as well as this history's influence on our society. The museum is planning an exhibition in 2021 dedicated to the biblical figure Mary Magdalene: what is the reason for the widespread fascination with her and how did this complex representation come about? Historical sources, paintings, contemporary visual art and popular culture are used to construct a multifaceted image. In addition to important works from the museum's collection, approximately 50 loans will be exhibited, including approximately nineteen from foreign museums and (private) collections.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €50,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 24 June 2021 and 9 January 2022.

The Cobra Museum exhibition is focused on Kahlo and Rivera's artistry, their role in the rise of modernism in Mexico, and Frida Kahlo's enormous popularity.

Van Gogh Museum 'Gustav Klimt. Inspired by Monet, Van Gogh, Matisse', Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, 2022-2023
The Austrian artist Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) lived and worked in Vienna's belle époque, a period of unparalleled artistic achievement. Klimt was a member of the symbolist art movement and gained particular fame for his later work, characterised by decorative ornamentalism and suggestive-erotic symbolism. The Van Gogh Museum is organising a retrospective on Gustav Klimt in which the influence of international avant-garde art on Klimt's oeuvre is illustrated: from Whistler and Toorop, via Monet and Rodin, to Van Gogh and Matisse. 50 works by Gustav Klimt and 50 works by contemporaries are being brought to Amsterdam. The exhibition will then continue at the Österreichische Galerie Belvedere in Vienna.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 100,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen from 7 October 2022 and 8 January 2023.

Joods Historisch Museum AmsterdamVereniging Rembrandt Top pieces from the art depot, Jewish Historical Museum, Amsterdam, 2020-2021
The Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam is exhibiting a selection of top pieces from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries from its own art collection, including Portrait of a Boy by the Hungarian-Austrian artist Isidor Kaufmann (1853 -1921). In his travels around central and eastern Europe Kaufmann studied devout Hasidic Jews. His son Eduard was the model for this painting. Appreciation for Kaufmann's work increased greatly after the Second World War because the Eastern-European Jewish life he portrayed had been almost completely obliterated.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition will be on view from 9 September 2020 to 21 February 2021.

Museum van LoonVereniging Rembrandt Masterpieces in Van Loon: Art, Inspiration and Relevance, Museum Van Loon, Amsterdam, 2020
Museum Van Loon is exhibiting six masterpieces from its own collection, varying in time and discipline. Three speakers are highlighting the relevance of each work in a short film. First a (museum) expert: why is this part of the special public art collection? Then a creative person: how does this work inspire new art forms? And finally a layman: why, without having a professional connection to this work, is it relevant to him or her? The presentations can be viewed on tablets in the museum and are being screened in the coach house.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition will be on view from 2 October to 29 November 2020.

Museum Kennermerland in Beverwijk is exhibiting the presentation 'Characteristic Arts and Crafts. Kinheim Carpet Weaver and Potterie Kennemerland 1918-1939.' Kinheim carpets and Potterie Kennemerland have similarities and stylistic and design connections.

TextielMuseumVereniging Rembrandt Yamuna Forzani, TextielMuseum, Tilburg, 2020
The TextielMuseum in Tilburg is presenting two outfits by Yamuna Forzani it purchased in April 2020. The artist/designer Yamuna Forzani's visual language plays with the body and sexuality, the psychedelic aesthetics of the 1960s, and current visual culture of social media and kitsch. By collecting and displaying such pieces, the museum is not only supporting (young) makers in difficult times but is also adding a historic moment and new design trend to the museum collection.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition will be on view from 10 June 2020 to 1 September 2020.

Stadsarchief AmsterdamVereniging Rembrandt Turner - Silence in the City, Amsterdam City Archives, 2020
The Amsterdam City Archives is presenting one of its masterpieces, Westermarkt by the great English painter Benjamin Brecknell Turner. The photograph, taken in 1857 using the oldest photographic process, calotype, wrongfoots viewers. The prolonged exposure erased all movement. The city appears deserted, as if in lockdown. Fragile photographs like this rarely leave the safety of the depository. For two months, the public has the opportunity to enjoy the mysterious beauty and claire-obscure of the oldest photographs of Amsterdam.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition will be on view from 4 August 2020 to 25 October 2020.

Museum Klok & PeelVereniging Rembrandt Tower bells and their use, Museum Klok & Peel, 2020-2021
Museum Klok & Peel in Asten has devoted an entire room to tower bells from the twelfth to the nineteenth century with a great diversity in design and decoration.

Museum de Waag in Deventer is organising a presentation based on a centrepiece in its collection, the painting of the siege of Deventer by Dutch State troops led by Rennenberg.

Het Gouverneurshuis Museum in Heusden has a special collection of eighteenth-century water board glasses. These 'hand cups' were donated in the second half of the eighteenth century by new members of the water board college to the local water board. Thanks to beautiful engraving, each glass tells a unique story about the donor and his social and political background. New showcases and an interactive audio tour illustrate even better the story of the glasses, the history of the water board, and the eternal struggle against water.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition has been on permanent view since 24 October 2020.

Museum KronaVereniging Rembrandt 'Our Lady ter Linde - Comforter in the Hour of Need', Museum Krona, Uden, 2020
A cult statue of the Virgin Mary has occupied a central place in Museum Krona in Uden since this summer. According to local tradition, the Virgin Mary has been venerated in Uden since the thirteenth century. This worship goes back to the appearance of a statuette of the Virgin Mary in a linden tree. On the museum's initiative and in collaboration with local healthcare, cultural and religious institutions, the chapel of Our Lady ter Linde was connected to the Troost ('comfort') project, which started in the summer to help give the inhabitants of Uden (the initial epicentre of the corona outbreak in the Netherlands) the opportunity to bid farewell to loved ones. The cult statuette is being exhibited together with the 'pia vota' in a large display case with various digital applications.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition will be on view from 18 July 2020 to 6 December 2020.

Museum Ons'Lieve Heer op SolderVereniging Rembrandt The Altar of Our Lady, Museum Our Lord in the Attic, 2020
The Altar of Our Lady at Museum Our Lord in the Attic is a popular place for visitors to stop. Amsterdammers have found comfort and encouragement in the Virgin Mary for centuries. The beautifully carved lindenwood statue of the Virgin Mary (c. 1700) with some of the original polychromy is one of the few surviving works of art from the oldest inventory of the seventeenth-century Attic Church. The museum was forced to implement an adjusted route through the museum upon reopening. This rendered the separate chapel where the Virgin Mary is displayed inaccessible. The museum has moved the Altar of Our Lady to the sanctuary opposite the main altar and has organised a special floral route through the museum.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition will be on view from 15 August 2020 to 8 December 2020.

Museum Het ValkhofVereniging Rembrandt 'Binnenste Buitenland', Museum Het Valkhof, 2020
Museum Het Valkhof in Nijmegen is organising a small exhibition Binnenste Buitenland (nearest abroad) with fifteen romantic landscape paintings of the region east of Nijmegen. The undulating region around Beek attracted many artists in the period 1810-1860, including B.C. Koekkoek (1803-1862). This generation of artists left their mark on the development of landscape art in the Netherlands. Topographical identifiability ceased to be a goal; they were captivated by the rural atmosphere and idyllic surroundings. In addition to the exhibition, the museum has organised a walking route to Ubbergen incorporating the paintings.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition will be on view from 7 August 2020 to 1 November 2020.

Museum CatharijneconventVereniging Rembrandt 'Hidden Pearl', Museum Catharijneconvent, Utrecht, 2020-2021
Museum Catharijneconvent in Utrecht is presenting The Crucifixion of the Master of the Lamentation of Christ in Lindau this summer. The painting was made in Bavaria around 1425 and shows Christ after his crucifixion in the presence of his mother Mary and John the Evangelist. Few paintings of this quality have survived from this period, making The Crucifixion an important work. It will be thoroughly restored in the coming time, and the first cleaning test yielded spectacular results. The museum is organising an in-depth presentation on this hidden gem in its collection and the importance of the work and its restoration.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition will be on view from 1 August 2020 to 20 September 2020, followed by 'Body Language. The body in medieval art' from 25 September 2020 to 17 January 2021.

The Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam manages the adjacent museum, Sonneveld House, an icon of Nieuwe Bouwen modernist architecture built in 1933 and opened to the public in 2001. Public information has until now emphasised the house's beauty and luxury. The Covid-19 pandemic has prompted the museum to develop a new audio tour by way of several top pieces in the collection. Visitors can experience how the formulation of architecture and design a hundred years ago was dominated by hygiene and health and the design solutions this led to.

This summer the museum organised a presentation with works by Wim Oepts (1904-1988). The painter was a virtuoso user of colour and is the museum's most popular artist. The warmth of the sunny south shimmers on his canvases because 'a surface must vibrate', as Oepts said.

Museum GoudaVereniging Rembrandt Altarpieces, Museum Gouda, 2020-2021
Museum Gouda has an important collection of religious art. The sixteenth-century monumental altarpieces which survived the Iconoclastic Fury are unique in the Netherlands. The seventeenth-century altar paintings illustrate the story of hidden or house churches, when Catholic Mass was unofficially tolerated in the Calvinist Netherlands. The museum highlights the art-historical importance of the special altarpieces in its permanent display, but also puts them in their religious and historical context by means of a special presentation.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition will be on view from 8 December 2020 to September 2021.

Amerongen Castle has a unique textile collection which has been cared for and restored for 40 years by a group of volunteers, the 'Angels'. This summer Amerongen Castle paid tribute to the textile collection and the Angels by exhibiting an eighteenth-century palempore from India: a colourful canvas depicting a tree in blossom, surrounded by birds, flowers and insects. The large dimensions of the palempore mean it is only rarely exhibited to the public.

Kunsthal Rotterdam Calder NOW, Kunsthal Rotterdam, 2021-2022
The American sculptor Alexander Calder (1868 - 1976) was fascinated by movement and added dynamism to the previously static art of sculpture. The progressive and experimental nature of his work has had a major influence on the development of the visual arts and was and is an inspiration for contemporaries and subsequent generations. In collaboration with the Calder Foundation, the Kunsthal is organising an exhibition entitled Calder NOW, focusing on Calder's influence on contemporary art. Around 25 of Alexander Calder's works are being exhibited alongside works by ten leading artists who have been inspired by him, including Olafur Eliasson, Ernesto Neto, Sarah Sze, Roman Signer and Carsten Nicolai.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 50,000 towards this exhibition, which will open 20 November 2021 and run until 29 May 2022.

Centraal Museum Acquisition of 'Granido and Daifilo' (1623) van Dirck van Baburen, Centraal Museum, Utrecht, 2020
Centraal Museum has acquired a work by Dirck van Baburen, an Utrecht caravaggist and founder of pastoral painting. The Utrecht nobleman Pieter van Hardenbroeck commissioned the canvas in 1623 to commemorate his budding love for his wife. Van Baburen portrayed them as Granida and Daifilo (a Persian princess and a simple shepherd). His first-class canvas was the earliest depiction of a theme that would be incredibly popular from this time. The acquisition forms a unique diptych together with another highlight in the museum's collection - Gerard van Honthorst's beautiful Granida and Daifilo, painted in 1625.

The artwork was sold at a public auction in January 2020. The Turing Foundation provided € 50,000 to enable the Centraal Museum to increase their bid at the art auction. The museum acquired the work without having to utilise the Turing Foundation's contribution.

Van Gogh MuseumDrents Museum Acquisition of Vincent van Gogh's 'Farmer Burning Weeds' (1883), Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, 2019-2020
The Drents Museum and the Van Gogh Museum have acquired one of Vincent van Gogh's early paintings: Farmer Burning Weeds (1883). This small but powerful work depicts a lonely figure on a deserted plain at dusk, illuminated by a small fire. Van Gogh painted it in Drenthe, in the north-east of the Netherlands, where he spent the autumn of 1883 and captured the landscape in paintings and drawings. This is one of the few paintings from this period to have survived. The artwork was sold at a public auction.

The Turing Foundation committed € 110,000 to enable the museums to increase their bid at the art auction. The museums acquired the work without having to utilise the Turing Foundation's provision.

Museum Gouda Candlelight, Museum Gouda, 2020-2022
Museum Gouda curates the historical collection of the mediaeval town of Gouda, a town famous for Gouda cheese and Gouda pottery. Since the Stearine Candle Factory opened in 1853, Gouda has also been a candle manufacturer. 'Candle Town Gouda' is the title of Museum Gouda's exhibition on the phenomenon of candlelight in painting. The museum has selected over forty paintings from the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries in which artists have used candlelight, for example, to enhance the drama, and emphasise depth and the effect of shadow. Around fourteen paintings are from international collections. Most of these foreign loans have not be exhibited in the Netherlands for a long time or ever before.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 20,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 13 November 2021 and 10 April 2021.

Teylers Museum John Constable, Teylers Museum, Haarlem, 2020-2021
Teylers Museum is organising the first retrospective on the English landscape painter John Constable (1776-1837), who was a member of the Romantic school and was ground breaking in his realistic portrayal of landscapes and cloudy skies. He was heavily influenced by the seventeenth-century Flemish and Dutch masters and the realistic way in which Jacob van Ruysdael, Rembrandt and Rubens portrayed landscapes. An impressive 90 of Constable's works - paintings, watercolours and sketches - from international collections are being used to give an overview of his artistic development and the influence of Dutch masters on his work.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 40,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 19 September 2020 and 27 June 2021.

Drents Museum 'Frida Kahlo. Viva la Frida', Drents Museum, 2021-2022
In 2020 the Drents Museum is organising the largest project in the museum's history: an exhibition on Mexican artist Frida Kahlo (1907-1954). Kahlo's predominantly autobiographical work is classified as magical realism and is characterised by her use of bright colours and Mexican folklore motifs. About 145 works from two Mexican collections - paintings and drawings from Museo Dolores Olmedo and personal objects from Museo Frida Kahlo - give an overview of Frida Kahlo's life and work. The works from the aforementioned collections have never been exhibited together before and most of Kahlo's works have never been seen in the Netherlands. This makes the exhibition a first in all respects.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €75,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 10 October 2021 and 27 March 2022.

Scheepvaartmuseum Amsterdam 'Willem van de Velde: Father & Son', Scheepvaartmuseum Amsterdam, 2021-2022
From October 2020 the National Maritime Museum is presenting an exhibition on Willem van de Velde the Elder (1611-1693) and his son Willem van de Velde the Younger (1633-1707). The pair worked together for forty years in a thriving and international family studio and set the tone in seascape painting in the seventeenth century. Willem van de Velde the Elder was expert at detailed pen paintings and Willem van de Velde the Younger excelled in the production of oil paintings. The overview will consist of around 40 paintings and 35 drawings by the two Van de Veldes (mostly from foreign collections), varying from small sketches to monumental naval battles and supplemented with, among other things, model ships and a special tapestry.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €40,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 1 October 2021 and 27 March 2022.

Dordrechts Museum 'In the light of Cuyp. Aelbert Cuyp & Gainsborough - Constable - Turner', Dordrechts Museum, 2021-2022
The landscape painter Aelbert Cuyp (1620-1691) lived and worked for his entire life in the town of Dordrecht. During his life his work was sold predominantly in and around Dordrecht, but in the mid-eighteenth century his art was discovered by English art collectors, resulting in 'Cuyp mania'. Aelbert Cuyp's work had a major impact on English landscape painters in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Painters such as Thomas Gainsborough, John Constable and J.M.W. Turner particularly admired his work. The Dordrechts Museum is marking the 400th centenary of the artist's birth with an ambitious exhibition on Aelbert Cuyp's influence on English landscape painting. 35 of Cuyp's paintings and an equal number of his successors' paintings from foreign (mainly British) collections will be coming to Dordrecht.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 40,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 3 October 2021 and 6 March 2022.

Beelden aan Zee 'Niki de Saint Phalle aan Zee', Museum Beelden aan Zee, Scheveningen, 2019-2020
The work of the French sculptor and painter Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) is regarded as Nouveau Realism and is associated with Pop Art. The self-taught Saint Phalle played an important role in female empowerment in the art world in the 1960s and 1970s, and she is renowned for her monumental works, including the Nanas - opulent, brightly coloured female figures. These cheerful primaeval mothers are an ode to women as the source of life. These Nanas, also called bathers, are the focus of the retrospective exhibition 'Niki de Saint Phalle at Sea' at Museum Beelden aan Zee. A total of 80 international loans will illustrate the Nanas development in all their diversity from 1965. The Nanas will not be highlighted solely as an iconic image of women but will also be placed in the context of the ongoing discussion of gender relations, equal treatment and the #metoo movement.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 25,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 5 October 2019 and 1 March 2020.

Based on Vincent van Gogh's art collection, the exhibition "Van Goghs Intimates: friends, family, models" will be in the Noordbrabants Museum. The exhibition is focused on Vincent van Gogh's relationships with the people who played an important role in his life and work: family, friends and fellow artists.

The museum wants the exhibition to link the artist more closely to his native region, Brabant.

Kunstmuseum Den Haag "Monet. The garden paintings", Kunstmuseum Den Haag, 2019-2020
For the first time in 30 years the Kunstmuseum Den Haag is organising a monographic exhibition on Claude Monet (1840-1926), in which the artist's development in the last 25 years of his life will take centre stage. Monet retired around 1900 to his home in Giverny, where he focused on depicting his flowery garden. The work he created there was initially still impressionist, but over time Monet used an increasingly expressive and almost abstract visual language. Exhibiting Monet's images of water lilies and wisteria clearly demonstrates this development. As well as two works from its own collection, the Gemeentemuseum is displaying more than 30 works from foreign collections.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €75,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 12 October 2019 and 2 February 2020

Museum Prinsenhof Delft Main Supporter 'Pieter de Hooch in Delft', Museum Prinsenhof Delft, 2019-2020
Never before has Pieter de Hooch been seen monographically in the Netherlands, even though everyone in the country knows his name and work, and almost every Dutch city has a Pieter de Hooch street. This very ambitious and courageous project by Museum Prinsenhof Delft is taking De Hooch out of Vermeer's shadow. Museum Prinsenhof brings Pieter De Hooch's masterpieces and visitors' favourites from all over the world - Germany, Ireland, Spain, America, France, Austria, the UK and Russia - back to Delft: the city where this important master of the Dutch Golden Age produced his finest works. It is all being done in time for the Golden Age centenary year 2019. Thorough historical research conducted prior to the exhibition and is being combined with broad peripheral programming involving many people in Delft. This exhibition could well entice some of the many tourists from Amsterdam! It is a special achievement by an energetic team able to deliver here and now.

The Turing Foundation awarded the € 500,000 Turing Award 2017 to Museum Prinsenhof Delft for its exhibition on Pieter de Hooch, which will be open to the public from 11 October 2019 to 16 February 2020.

'The Residents' is the Residentie Orkest's prime educational project for children between the ages of eight and twelve. For ten years now, hundreds of children from disadvantaged neighbourhoods in The Hague have been given the opportunity to develop and broaden their horizons through music. Children learn to play an instrument in a three-year course at primary schools. The participants are given an extensive introduction to musical instruments, visit a rehearsal by the orchestra, meet a musician and visit a performance. Then they choose 'their' instrument and are given weekly instrumental music lessons in a group by professional music teachers.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 20,000 towards this project in the 2021-2022 academic year.

Nederlands Philharmonisch Orkest 'Welcome to the Orchestra', classical music for children aged eight to eleven, 2021-2022
Welkom bij het Orkest (Welcome to the Orchestra) introduces primary school pupils aged eight to eleven to classical music and the symphony orchestra. The programme's central theme is a weekly vlog in which presenter Pepijn Gunneweg looks for a piece of music he has heard somewhere. He gradually becomes fascinated by how this music is made and he discovers the musicians, instruments and eventually the (Netherlands Philharmonic) orchestra behind the music. Pupils prepare in class for a visit to the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra with teaching materials, songs, body percussion, conducting, musicians visiting the class and music lessons via live stream. And after five weeks they are ready for a real concert by the entire Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra at the NedPhO-Koepel in Amsterdam East.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 20,000 towards this project in the 2021-2022 academic year.

Nationale Opera & Ballet Dutch National Opera and Ballet, Bus transport to school matinees, 2021-2024
The mission of the Dutch National Opera & Ballet (NOB) is for everyone to experience the magic of opera and ballet and it welcomes visitors of all ages. The NOB focuses particularly on young people: it wants every school-going child (in both primary and secondary education) to have the opportunity to experience what it is like to be moved by a beautifully sung story or a magnificent dance experience. School matinees are an important part of the programme for primary schools: extra performances of specially selected opera and ballet productions exclusively for schools from across the Netherlands. The school matinees have proved very popular, but transport to the theatre is an organisational and financial barrier to many schools outside Amsterdam. By providing bus transport the NOB wants to offer a structural solution to this problem and reach primary school children from all over the country.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 115,800 (of which € 38,600 in 2021) towards bus transport to the special Dutch National Opera & Ballet school matinees, which will take place between September 2020 and June 2023.

Stichting Klassiekfabriek Klassifest, Paradiso, Amsterdam, 2021
Stichting Klassiekfabriek has been organising Klassifest in Paradiso since 2016: a one-day festival with bite-sized classical music for a young audience between the ages of 20 and 40. Whilst many orchestras and ensembles struggle to attract this target group, Klassifest has done so successfully. Its concept: all Klassifest concerts are no longer than half an hour, the bar is open and there are no seats in the hall. The venue (a pop concert venue) and the short concerts give the audience the opportunity to listen to various kinds of classical music and different musicians in a shorter time. Klassifest 2020's theme, 'Ludwig's birthday!', marks the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 5,000 towards Klassifest 2021, which will take place on 6 November 2021.

SeaSession School performances of Circus Charms Music Theatre Production, 2020-2022
Frank and René Groothof return to the theatre with the project 'Circus Charms', a music theatre production based on the stories, plays and poems of Russia's greatest absurdist writer Daniil Charms (1905-1942). Charms' work has been adapted into a performance consisting of a mix of circus, storytelling, brothers' quarrels and film. The common thread is classical music: the ensemble SeaSession is performing chamber music by unknown avant-garde Soviet composers from the 1920s - Alexei Zhivotov, Alexander Mosolov, Arno Babajanian, Vladimir Deshyevov and Leonid Polovinkin - contemporaries of Charms. A total of eleven family performances and six school performances are being performed.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €15,000 towards this project, which will take place between 19 September and 29 December 2020. The contribution is earmarked for the school performances.
