Vermeer Contemporary – Jan Vermeer and the present. Berlin shows important artists in the world’s first complete Vermeer exhibition | CSR.ART | 25.08.-23.09.2023 – extended until 18.11.2023

Editors’ Choice

Johannes Vermeer is the great unknown of Dutch painting. In his painting, he brought the invisible to light through the visible. The old master achieved an immediacy in the depiction of his protagonists that was unusual for the time and thus became a role model for a young contemporary generation of artists. The 17th meets the 21st century in the group exhibition “Vermeer Contemporary” from 25 August to 23 September 2023 (extended until 18 November), featuring 26 important contemporary positions. The exhibition, organised by the European Art Association in cooperation with DEEDS.NEWS – The Art Newspaper from Berlin at CSR.ART Contemporary Show Room, presents positions of today’s artists in a variety of ways with adapted elements from Vermeer’s art using their own artistic means.

Jan Vermeer (c. 1632-1675) was last on show in Germany in the large Dresden exhibition “Vom Innehalten” (until January 2022) in the Gemäldegalerie der Alten Meister in the Zwinger with around a quarter of his known complete oeuvre, before the world’s largest ever complete exhibition of the painter’s work in Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum (until June 2023) recently showed 28 of a total of 37 known paintings to around 650,000 visitors to the exhibition of the painter, who died prematurely at the age of 43.
