Gemeentemuseum Den Haag "Monet. The Garden Paintings", Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, 2019-2020
For the first time in 30 years the Gemeentemuseum 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

Rembrandthuis "Rembrandts Social Network", Het Rembrandthuis Amsterdam, 2019
The Rembrandt House Museum is opening the Rembrandt Year 2019 with an exhibition entitled 'Rembrandt's Social Network' - devoted to Rembrandt's family and friends and the role they played in his life and work. It looks at artist friends, loyal friends and 'blood relatives'. The overview of 60 works, with an emphasis on Rembrandt's informal art works by and for intimates, provides insight into Rembrandt's world and intimate circle. A total of approximately nine foreign loans are coming to Amsterdam, including the 'Portrait of Titus' (Museum of Art Baltimore, c. 1660) which has not previously been exhibited in the Netherlands.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €25,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 2 February and 5 May 2019.

Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam Willem de Kooning exposition, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, 2019-2020
The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam is organising the first posthumous retrospective of Willem de Kooning (1904 - 1997) in Europe. As many as 100 of his works are being exhibited, including international masterpieces that have not been seen in Europe before, highlighting the entire oeuvre of this important representative of modern art. The exhibition focuses on the way De Kooning unites abstraction and figuration and puts his work in the context of artistic exchange between the United States and Europe. About 30 works by contemporaries are being exhibited alongside these works by De Kooning.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €100,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 28 September 2019 and 12 January 2020.

Stedelijk Museum Schiedam Main supporter "Manzoni in Holland", Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, 2019
Piero Manzoni was one of the great innovators in visual arts in the 20th century. In his short life (1933-1963) he produced an impressive oeuvre and was highly influential on the development of conceptual art. The Stedelijk Museum Schiedam's 'Manzoni in Holland' exhibition is the first time in almost 50 years that his work is being exhibited on a large scale in the Netherlands. It shows Manzoni's artistic development in the context of his collaboration with Dutch galleries and artists, and his influence on the Dutch nul-kunstenaars ('zero artists'), conceptual artists in the 1960s, and the ZERO movement in Rotterdam and internationally.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €50,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 16 February and 2 June 2019.

Stedelijk Museum de Lakenhal 'Young Rembrandt', Stedelijk Museum De Lakenhal, Leiden, 2019-2020
2019 will be the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt's death, and has been declared 'Rembrandt and the Golden Age' year. Museum De Lakenhal in Leiden, the city of Rembrandt's birth, is marking this with an exhibition about the artist's early work. Consisting of over 140 works, including many special foreign loans of pieces that have not been seen in the Netherlands before or for many years, the exhibition gives insight into the early development of Rembrandt's exceptional artistic talent.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €30,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 1 November 2019 and 9 February 2020

Stichting Hortus Kamermuziek­festival HortusFestival 'Death speaks', 2018
The Hortus Festival, founded in 2004, connects chamber music with exceptional nature in five Dutch botanical gardens: in Amsterdam, Leiden, Utrecht, Rotterdam and Wageningen. Its emphasis is on chamber music from the period 1785-1950, known as the Romantic period. The festival will be reduced from 6 to 3 weeks in 2018, and the number of concerts per venue will be increased and supplemented with an educational programme. The organisation hopes this will enable it to reach a broader and younger audience and create more of a 'festival feeling'. The theme of the 15th Hortus Festival is 'Death speaks', which looks more closely at the symbolism and finiteness of the cycle of life.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €10,000 towards this festival, which can be seen between 25 July and 11 August 2018.

Kermaiek Museum Princessehof 'Made in Holland: world brand for 400 years', Ceramics Museum Princessehof, Leeuwarden, 2018-2019
Dutch ceramics have been known around the world for centuries. Manufacturers used foreign styles and techniques to produce their products. These new ceramics were successfully produced and then exported on a large scale. Ceramics Museum Princessehof's exhibition Made in Holland: world brand for 400 years explores the development and distribution of ceramic techniques, styles and products, centred on the Netherlands.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 56,506 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 2 June 2018 and 30 June 2019.

Bonnefanten Museum Maastricht Myth unravelled: Master of Elsloo, Bonnefantenmuseum, 2019
In the 16th century the so-called 'Master of Elsloo' worked in the Euroregion of Dutch and Belgian Limburg and the adjacent German region. This was a collective name for a group of highly skilled carvers. The Bonnefantenmuseum - which owns six figures attributed to the Master of Elsloo - is organising an international exhibition on the subject in 2017, in which the results of multidisciplinary research on the subject will also be presented.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €60,000 towards this exhibition, earmarked for the marketing and communication required to engage a wide audience with this particular topic.

Kunsthal KadeMuseum Flehite "Caspar van Wittel (1653-1736), Discovery of a Dutch Master in Italy", 2019
Kunsthal KAdE and Museum Flehite are organising an exhibition in 2019 about the artist Caspar van Wittel (1653 - 1736), who was born in Amersfoort. Van Wittel went to Rome in 1674, and using the name 'Gaspare Vanvitelli', caused a furore. He is regarded as the founder of vedutism, the genre of townscapes with which successors such as Canaletto, Bellotto and Guardi would later have great triumphs. There will be around 40 paintings and 25 drawings with which the Dutch public can get acquainted with the artist Van Wittel, who is unknown in his native country. His works are being exhibited in combination with work by his Dutch predecessors and Italian successors. The Turing Foundation is contributing € 40,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 19 January and 21 April 2019.

Teylers Museum "Leonardo. Emotion and Expression", Teylers Museum, 2018-2019
In 2018, Teylers Museum is organising the first international exhibition on Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) in the Netherlands. Leonardo was a master in portraying emotions and characters, and this is the approach used in the exhibition. A total of 34 of Leonardo's drawings and 42 drawings and 5 paintings by his forerunners, contemporaries and successors are being exhibited. The exhibition is the third in a series at Teylers Museum on the three great renaissance artists: Michelangelo (2005), Rafael (2012; supported by the Turing Foundation) and Leonardo (2018).

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 50,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 25 February to 6 January 2019.

Centraal Museum "Utrecht, Caravaggio and Europe", Centraal Museum, Utrecht, 2018-2019
One of the Centraal Museum's core collections is the Utrecht Caravaggists. From the autumn of 2018, the museum will present a special overview that will provide insight into the way the three Utrecht painters Gerard van Honthorst, Dirck van Baburen and Hendrick ter Brugghen were influenced by Caravaggio during their travels to Rome in the early 17th century. Their most beautiful works will be juxtaposed with that of their Italian, French, Spanish and Flemish colleagues. A total of 70 works will be exhibited, including 48 paintings from international collections - culminating in Caravaggio's The Entombment of Christ from the Vatican museums.

The Turing Foundation is supporting this exhibition (14 December 2018 to 24 March 2019) with a contribution of € 50,000.

Frans Hals Museum "Frans Hals and the Modernists", Frans Hals Museum, 2018-2019
Frans Hals is regarded as one of the most innovative painters of the Dutch Golden Age for his characteristic virtuoso brushstroke. The artist fell into oblivion in the 18th century, but was rediscovered in the 19th century by international top painters. Edouard Manet, John Singer Sargent, Vincent van Gogh and others travelled to Haarlem to study Hals' portraits. With the exhibition 'Frans Hals and the Modernists', the Frans Hals Museum wants to provide insight into the relationship between Hals' work and that of the late 19th-century artists who admired him. A total of 60 works from international collections will be coming to Haarlem. The Turing Foundation is contributing € 50,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 12 October 2018 to 10 February 2019.

Museum Boijmans van Beuningen "Pure Rubens", Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam, 2018-2019
At the end of 2018, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, together with the Museo Nacional del Prado, is presenting an exhibition of Pieter Paul Rubens' oil sketches. Rubens prepared many of his compositions with painted sketches on panel. Unlike many of his large paintings, the oil sketches are entirely Rubens' own work, giving an unprecedented insight into his mastery and virtuosity. A total of 60 works are coming to Rotterdam, most of them from the Prado.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 50,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 8 September 2018 to 13 January 2019.

Museum de Fundatie "Giocometti - Chadwick, Facing Fear", Museum de Fundatie, Zwolle, 2018-2019
From 22 September 2018 to 6 January 2019, Museum de Foundatie is organising an exhibition of the works of Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) and Lynn Chadwick (1914-2003 ). Together they contributed decisively to the modern face of sculpture in the second half of the twentieth century. Museum de Fundatie wants to show that the artists experienced a parallel development in the 1950s and 1960s: both felt the threatening apocalypse of the Cold War after the euphoria of liberation and both portrayed this fear of death in their work. 28 sculptures and 37 works on paper by Alberto Giacometti are being exhibited and 40 sculptures and 20 to 40 works on paper by Lynn Chadwick.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 40,000 towards this exhibition.

Design Museum Den Bosch "Jean Cocteau / Metamorphosis", Design Museum Den Bosch, 2018-2019
Jean Cocteau (1889-1963) was an incredibly versatile artist who was particularly known for his visual work: he made illustrations, drawings, posters, tapestries, sculptures, ceramics and jewellery. The Design Museum Den Bosch, which collects Cocteau's ceramics and jewellery, is organising the first solo exhibition of his work in the Netherlands. The 12 works from its own collection are being exhibited in the context of the artist's total oeuvre. There is also insight into Cocteau's life and motives.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 20,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 10 November 2018 and 10 March 2019.

Museum Het Valkhof "I, Mary of Guelders", Museum Het Valkhof, 2018-2019
Mary of Guelders' prayer book is one of the greatest medieval art treasures from the Netherlands. It could not be viewed for years - neither by the general public, nor even by researchers. Museum Het Valkhof will for the first time exhibit a total of forty restored pages in 2018. In addition to the prayer book, special objects are being used to give an impression of Mary of Guelders' life.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 30,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 13 October 2018 to 6 January 2019.

Museum Prinsenhof Delft Main Supporter Pieter de Hooch Exposition, Museum Prinsenhof Delft, 2019-2020
Never before has Pieter de Hoogh 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 Hoogh street. This very ambitious and courageous project by Museum Prinsenhof Delft is taking De Hoogh out of Vermeer's shadow. Museum Prinsenhof brings Pieter De Hoogh'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 Hoogh, which will be open to the public from 11 October 2019 to 16 February 2020.

Beelden aan Zee Main Supporter 'Zadkine Aan Zee', Museum Beelden aan Zee, Scheveningen, 2018-2019
Exhibiting sculptures in the Netherlands is not easy. But Museum Beelden aan Zee - which was only founded 23 years ago! - has been exceptional for a long time and is now working on a grand retrospective (just say the biggest ever) of the poetic, lyrically focused and 'purely artisan' sculptor Ossip Zadkine (1890-1967). Zadkine was important to the Netherlands - which Dutchman does not know the national monument The Destroyed City, which he made in 1953 as a memorial to the bombing of Rotterdam. It was high time someone dared to exhibit a retrospective. Museum Beelden aan Zee took up the challenge. Thanks to a well thought-out concept, and more than a hundred sculptures, many of which have never before been exhibited anywhere - presented in ten overarching themes, each more intriguing than the previous one - the public will be able to learn about the versatility and scope of this Franco-Russian master of modernism.

The Turing Foundation awarded the € 150,000 Turing Award 2017 to Museum Beelden aan Zee for their 'Zadkine Aan Zee' exhibition, which will be open to the public from 6 October 2018 to 3 March 2019.

Amsterdamse School Museum Het Schip Exposition 'Gaudi in de Amsterdamse School', Museum Het Schip, 2018-2019
Museum Het Schip has been based in the social housing block called 'Het Schip' in Amsterdam's Spaarndammerbuurt neighbourhood since 2001. The museum draws many parallels between the methods of architects of the Amsterdam School and designs by the Spanish architect Gaudi (1852-1926), and has had the opportunity to make special loans from Barcelona (ranging from doors, chairs and tiles to models and blueprints) and exhibit them in Amsterdam. The exhibition will provide insights into the sources of inspiration, symbolism and craftsmanship of Gaudi and architects of the Amsterdam School and appreciation for their work in the past 100 years.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 10,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 1 October 2018 and 1 April 2019.

Van Gogh Museum 'Van Gogh & Japan', Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, 2018
Vincent van Gogh's first contact with Japanese art was in 1885 and he collected Japanese prints and woodcuts from the winter of 1886/1887. The Van Gogh Museum is organising the exhibition 'Van Gogh & Japan' in 2018, which will focus on the artistic influence of Japanese art on Van Gogh's work. For this first retrospective exhibition on the subject, the museum is working closely with the Hokkaido Museum of Modern Art in Sapporo, the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and the National Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 75,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 23 March and 24 June 2018.

Museum de Fundatie Main Supporter 'Neo Rauch', Museum De Fundatie, Zwolle, 2018
Museum de Fundatie is organising the first major retrospective exhibition of the German artist Neo Rauch (1960). Rauch is one of the founders of the Neue Leipziger Schule and his big, surrealistic and narrative works appeal very much to the imagination. The exhibition will use some 60 works to illustrate the painter's development over the past 25 years. The museum has previously drawn attention to two other representatives of the Leipziger Schule, Werner Tübke and Wolfgang Mattheuer.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 50,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 27 January and 3 June 2018. This contribution is earmarked for bringing foreign (U.S.) loans to the Netherlands.

Museum van Loon 'Ferdinand Bol: Het Huis, De Collectie, De Kunstenaar', Museum van loon, Amsterdam, 2017-2018
The painter Ferdinand Bol was the first person to live in the property on the Keizersgracht in Amsterdam where the Museum Van Loon is now located. Which is why the museum has organised an exhibition about the painter's art collection, based on an inventory from 1669. The exhibition gives an impression of the collection with a total of 20 works by artists like Rembrandt, Peter Paul Rubens, Jacob van Ruisdael and Ferdinand Bol himself. The highlight of the exhibition is Rembrandt van Rijn's painting 'The Circumcision' (1661). This painting is part of the collection of the National Gallery in Washington and has not been seen in the Netherlands since 1898.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 10,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 6 October 2017 and 8 January 2018. This contribution is earmarked for the costs of the loan of Rembrandt's 'The Circumcision' (1661).

Joods Historisch Museum Amsterdam Fauvism to Surrealism. Jewish avant-garde art from Hungary, Jewish Historical Museum, Amsterdam, 2017
In 2017 the Jewish Historical Museum is organising an exhibition on the work of Jewish avant-garde artists from Hungary: adherents of Fauvism, Cubism, German Expressionism and Surrealism. The role of these artists has been neglected, as result of which they have not gained the reputation and fame they deserve for the quality of their work. The Jewish Historical Museum wants to change this and introduce a wider audience to the work of artists like László Moholy-Nagy, Lajos Tihanyi, Róbert Berény, and Béla Czóbel.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €30,000 towards this exhibition, which will be held from 15 May 2017 to 17 September 2017.

The Stedelijk Museum Schiedam has had the special opportunity to take over the exhibition Eye Attack - Op Art and kinetic art from the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humblebaek, Denmark.

Teylers Museum Jean-Antoine Watteau, Teylers Museum, 2017
Teylers Museum is organising an exhibition on the work of the 18th-century French artist Jean-Antoine Watteau (1684-1721). His style of painting, also known as 'fêtes galantes', depicts people disporting themselves amorously in lush parks. Displaying real feelings contrasted with the formal rules of prevailing tradition in academic art at the time. Watteau is considered an avant-garde artist whose work ran counter to the style in vogue with King Louis XIV and court culture. His elegant and refined work represents a break with the heavy Baroque and marks the beginning of Rococo.

The Turing Foundation is contributing 30,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 1 February and 15 May 2017.

The Swiss artist Jean Tinguely (1925-1991) was part of the Nouveau Réalisme artistic movement and is best known for his kinetic art works. The Stedelijk Museum is organising a major retrospective of Tinguely in 2016, with an overview starting with his wire constructions from the 1950s through to his large multi-media installations from the 1980s. As well as exhibiting the cheerful character of Tinguely's art, the more complex themes in his work are also highlighted, including (self) destruction and death. The thirteen Tinguely art works in the Stedelijk Museum collection are being restored, and special loans from international museum and private collections are coming to Amsterdam for this exhibition.

The Turing Foundation is supporting this exhibition with a contribution of €50,000, earmarked for foreign loans.

Fries MuseumTuring Toekenning Main supporter Alma-Tadema Exposition, Fries Museum, Leeuwarden, 2016-2017
The Fourth Turing Award I was awarded to the Fries Museum on 21 May 2015. In the run-up to Leeuwarden's year as the European Capital of Culture, the Fries Museum is organising an exhibition on Lourens - Sir Lawrence - Alma-Tadema, the originally Frisian painter who created an unprecedented furore in Victorian Britain. Alma-Tadema looked in an innovative way at space in both his work and how people moved in it. His dreamy and sometimes also hysterical paintings were reviled for generations after World War I, when a changing art world harshly judged the Victorian era. This reached its nadir in the 1960s, when his work was unsold at asking prices as low as €300. He has been reassessed more recently. One of his works recently set a new auction record for Victorian paintings, having been sold for 35 million dollars. This makes it all the more ambitious to attempt now, twenty years after the Van Gogh Museum did so for the first time ever, to bring his work together.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €500,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between October 2016 and February 2017.

Organisatie Oude Muziek Festival Oude Muziek, Utrecht, 2018
The Festival Oude Muziek ('Early Music Festival') is the biggest early music festival in the world, attracting around 65,000 visitors a year. The festival's theme in 2018 is 'The Burgundy Lifestyle'. The inspiration was historian Johan Huizinga's book Herfsttj der Middeleeuwen (The Autumn of the Middle Ages; 1918), which is being used to translate Burgundian court culture - in which Franco-Flemish polyphony blossomed, and became the model for European music - and the history of the Burgundian mentality into a prospectus for the festival.

The Turing Foundation is supporting Festival Oude Muziek (24 August to 2 September 2018) with a contribution of € 15,000.
