The Piet Zwart Institute Master Fine Art is thrilled to welcome artist Addoley Dzegede as our very first Fulbright researcher-in-residence. Addoley is a Ghanaian-American artist who grew up in South Florida. With her Fulbright project Exploring textile lineages in Dutch collections through dyeing, batik, and wax print histories, Addoley takes Dutch museums and collections as primary sources and will explore textile lineages through the lens of dyeing, batik, and wax print. These lineages include textile crafts from around the world, such as Indian chintzes that have been incorporated into Dutch traditional wear, Javanese batik, and mass-produced wax prints that have found popularity in former Dutch colonies and their neighbors within Africa. During her nine-month residency, Addoley will gain a deeper understanding of the history of cross-cultural textile production, imitation, and adaptation. In the spring, she will lead workshops with MFA students to cultivate dye-producing plants in the Piet Zwart Institute’s garden. 

Addoley Dzegede received her BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art and MFA from Washington University in St Louis, where she was a Chancellor’s Graduate Fellow. She has been an Artist-in-Residence at Loghaven Artist Residency in Knoxville, Tennessee, AIR Green textile residency in Norway, the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida, Osei Duro in Accra, Ghana, Thread: a project of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation in Senegal, and Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, among others. Solo exhibitions include, Ballast, at Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, Missouri, and millefiori at KSMoCA in Portland, Oregon. Special projects include the Ask Addoley + Anna podcast with Anna Ihle, with seasons commissioned by Coast Contemporary, the National Museum of Norway, A Structure Envisioned for Changing Circumstances, and most recently by CAC Brétigny. 

On Wednesday September 28 2022, Addoley will give a talk at the Piet Zwart Institute about moments and discoveries that developed her deepening interest in textiles and led her to apply for a Fulbright to come to the Netherlands. This talk is free and open to the public. 

Time: 4pm. Address: Karel Doormanhof 45, Rotterdam

Witnessing as a method of getting through gatewaysBy María José Crespo and Madeleine RuggiJuly 15 6pm – 6.45pm at Kunstinstituut Melly

Becoming an observer, then a mediator. Witnessing gains access to information around the realities and fictions of borders, territories, and the currencies and values which bodies are subjected to in these zones.

Madeleine Ruggi and María José Crespo draw together their separate processings of information within their artistic research by sharing ideas and working methodologies into an audiovisual performance presentation. The presentation will navigate different ways of collecting information, and the translation of found materials as research.

Where is my karaoke?By Samboleap TolJuly 15, 6.40 – 6.55pm  at Kunstinstituut Melly

For this lecture performance, Tol has deviced a sonic and textual response to the prompt ‘Where is my karaoke?’. Through storytelling she takes us through her musical bicultural childhood, flashing back through different sonic memories and questions, out loud, how it all relates to her now.

This is reality and it was but a chat away

A real chat is hard to come by. Trust is in short supply. But trust is needed to get a chat going, and let it generate what may qualify as social reality.

Reality is trembling. Where desire, grief, and power are at stake, many demons populate society, pulling people together and apart. Orange letters rub up against their lavender grounds in Oliver Doe’s large canvases, boldly making viewers’ retinas vibrate as performers lingering nearby signal, to whom it appeals, a readiness to engage in the poetry of clandestinely scripted encounters. Seeds, plants, clay plate poetry for garden beds, and fermented vegetable paintings are elements Kate Price offers up as tokens of trust, inspiring a commitment to fostering future ecologies. In her paintings and videos, Shertise Solano summons the multidimensional beings her grandmother in Curaçao still knew how to converse with, and who, channeled afresh, voice unaccounted traumata and limitless powers arising from the recollected history of Black families.

Places of encounter are ripe with tensions. Grazia Gallo trusts sculpture to rebuild a sense of a home, where generations clash, as the family improvises in close quarters a state-imposed architecture of social housing, to keep spirits up, and claim dignity in everyday matters. María José Crespo takes you to the Tijuana border, and in her sculptural environments makes you feel the intensities governing a strip of land where police lights color reality red and blue on CCTV, and paths are blocked, but the will to get by asserts itself with full defiance. Meanwhile, at the Metal Exchange all things solid melt into air with a flick of a trader’s hand, as Madeleine Ruggi shows. Her installation portrays how capital puts its spell on materials, and turns heavy scrap into currency flowing through Rotterdam harbor. Tracking the current make-over of port city real estate, Emma van Noort messes with the building blocks of model architecture: her sculptures scramble its vocabulary and recast it in the spirit of high precision slapstick engineering.

Stories build worlds. Xiaofeini Liu calls a universe into being with few objects and words, as she recounts the fate of a Mice Folk leaving their Salt Marshes in search of a Sugar Book, a taste of which was prophesied to bring bliss. Universities, like factories, once promised a future. In her paintings and performance, Andrea Celeste La Forgia commemorates the toll workers pay when that promise is broken, and the mill of wage labor grinds away time and health. La Forgia paints from photos her mother sends of her factory work, and relays her stories of everyday sabotage. A better life cannot be built unless communal mourning prepares the ground. In this key Samboleap Tol addresses displacement and death, yet also parenting and spiritual practice in her paintings and sound installation. After colonial modernities have destroyed and uprooted countless lives, she observes, restless spirits abound who must be engaged for justice to come. Across multidimensional realities, liaising with ghosts can be done, says Tol: Chat with them daily!

We are pleased to welcome you to our annual open studios titled Open Studios, an occasion during Art Rotterdam week for visitors to experience the range of practices, realities, narratives, and dynamics the MFA program fosters in its studio building.

We open our doors on Saturday May 21st and Sunday May 22nd at 11h and all until 18h you will have the occasion to meet and engage directly with a new generation of emerging international artists and see their work. While keeping our doors open to the public, the artists will be showing their work and hosting a durational program full of surprises,indoors and outdoors. This includes their group exhibition on the ground floor, performances, radio program, guided tours, bar, shop and conversations in and outside their studios throughout the day.

Location: Open studios of Master Fine Art is located at Karel Doormanhof 45, a short walk or bike-ride from Rotterdam Central Station.

More information on the program and the participants: https://openstudiospzi.cargo.site

The two-year Master Fine Art program foregrounds the reciprocal articulation of self-directed research, practice, and professionalization. It considers critical reflection, debate, and action as integral to being an artist. The MFA guides artistic development through exposure to actors, influences, and ideas circulating in contemporary art, professional guidance and workshops, and exhibition and public program opportunities for presenting research and work to wider audiences.

Team: Liesbeth Bik (tutor), Bernd Krauß (tutor), Cannach (tutor), Federica Bueti (tutor), Jan Verwoert (tutor), Nina Wakeford (tutor),  Katarina Zdjelar (tutor), Petra van der Kooij (coordinator) and Danny Giles (Course Director).

The Piet Zwart Institute Master Fine Art is pleased to announce our participation in “Personal Structures”, an exhibition organized by the European Cultural Centre Italy coinciding with the 59th Venice Biennale. The works of current PZI MFA students will be on display at Palazzo Mora April 23rd until November 27th 2022. The MFA presents an exhibition within an exhibition curated by our friends Shimmer. 

This exhibition, I Must Be Living Twice, proposes an unfixed quality of artistic production, returning to the studio as a space of powerful inarticulation. We invite the method of the studio into the exhibition to resist the environmental impacts, demands of production pressure, and typecasting that often accompany exhibitions. We attend to the private, tender points in which decisions are made in an artwork. This is where artwork splits off, continues, changes, rejects, or is forgotten.

This collection of work is amassed from the off-cuts or the not-yet-decided of material processes. These are the trimmings, the unworked ideas, the might-have-been that ends up sidelined. These materials have yet to find a footing in an artwork. These could also be the ‘objects’ of influence of painting or your practice over time. Perhaps it is a mirror on the desk, the rocks you keep picking up, or the ever-growing folder of dolphin tattoos.

I Must Be Living Twice features the trimmings, edges, and studio fragments of artists currently enrolled in the Piet Zwart Institute Master Fine Art in Rotterdam and is curated by Eloise Sweetman and Jason Hendrik Hansma, co-directors of Shimmer art space.

Based on their own design questions, students within the Master Design learn to do designerly and in-depth design research. They constantly reflect on what they discover and convey their work and expertise through storytelling. They combine and integrate this part-time master with their design practice, renew their own role and in this way that of creative professionals in society and organizations. They contribute to social, environmental and technological change. The combination of participatory work and authorship is fundamental.

Saturday 9 October 20213–6 pm

Join us for a SESSION celebrating the poetics and circular temporality of harvest, on the occasion of Jasmine Thomas-Girvan’s solo exhibition Bathed in Sacred Fire, presented in collaboration with Sour Grass and the Piet Zwart Master of Fine Arts.

This special SESSION moves through a cycle of gathering, preparing, sharing, and enjoying the produce of a garden in dialogue with the celebration of an exhibition. Its title ‘Laying a Table for the Ancestors’ is inspired by the grounding from the artistic practice of Trinidad and Tobago artist Jasmine Thomas-Girvan, on the occasion of her first solo exhibition in Europe as part of Kunstinstituut Melly’s SOLO DUETS series. Often embedded in material traces of the Caribbean such as seed and gourds, palm fronds, and feathers, Thomas-Girvan’s sculpture embraces a botanical temporality of place in which ancestry can be embraced as futurity as well as past.

For this program, we will gather at our downstairs bookshop and café MELLY, before taking a short walk to the Piet Zwart Instituut where we will be welcomed by students and staff for an introduction to their collaborative garden. The planting and cultivation of the garden will be introduced, as well as the pedagogic principle of the garden as a place of collective learning among artists.

Following this, we will return to MELLY for a conversation program featuring honored guest, the author, and poet Olive Senior. Connecting virtually, Senior will share insights from her award-winning works such as the Gardening in the Tropics (1994, winner F. J. Bressani Literary Prize) which explores a Jamaican literary consciousness of political, natural, and spiritual worlds. Senior will engage in conversation with Thomas-Girvan, as well as with guest curators Annalle Davis and Holly Bynoe of Sour Grass, a curatorial agency dedicated to cultural practitioners of the Caribbean region.

2020&2021 GRADUATION SHOW MFA PIET ZWART INSTITUTE Dates: July 1st – 11th, 2021Location: Het Archief, Robert Fruinstraat 52, Rotterdam, NLOpening: July 1st, 5:00 pm – 10:00 pmOnline performance & screening programme (TBA): July 10th

The Piet Zwart Institute Master Fine Art celebrates the graduates of 2020 and 2021 with an exhibition of their recent works. 

Through lockdowns and uprisings over the last year, artists have had to question how to engage artistic practice and life within both turbulence and monotony. Art practices have had to renegotiate new awarenesses of health, safety, grief, and isolation. Meanwhile movements for social justice seeking recourse to historic injustices weigh on our everyday consciousness. Notwithstanding the current emergent contexts of our time, the artists in this exhibition have been tasked to also carry the particularities of their own aesthetic and relational concerns into a field that is rapidly transforming around them. Together, the 2020 and 2021 graduates of the Piet Zwart Institute Master Fine Art represent two ends of a very long year. The conditions that have marked us all in different ways continue to influence the many and varied directions taken by these makers, doers, and organizers. 

The location of this exhibition, the former Rotterdam city archives, provides an architectural framework and a space to project through layers of history. As a storehouse for data and documentation of a city through the span of several decades, the archive, now emptied of its contents, is an appropriate space for framing this collective endeavor. What materializations, documents, or remnants serve as useful indications of shared histories? How do singular images represent not only themselves but perhaps also stand in for communal narratives and even global paradigms? 

This exhibition is inclusive of Piet Zwart Master Fine Art graduates of both 2020 and 2021. Their  works, as singular as they may be, also stand as markers for an ongoing shared experience: not only of pandemic and social transformation, but also of the smaller movements of everyday life. There is a general sociality between these works as they came into being around each other. The mutual influence of the conditions of the Piet’s shared studio spaces, collaborations, and solidarities can also inform how we engage with this exhibition through curiosity, attention and care.
