The Future is Female is an exhibition concept in which the work of 13 female artists is shown together with a text written especially by the artist Twan Janssen. This exhibition bundles female force and strength and encourages an open dialogue about art. Twan’s text guides you on a viewing and reading trip through the artworks by providing them with a personal perspective in which he shares his wonder, childhood memories and casual everyday thoughts. In this way he persuades you look at the artworks with a different eye, to reflect on art, life, yourself, somebody close, all in a playful way. And more….
The artists in the exhibition, all of note, have a comparable starting position – there is always a certain autobiographical element in their work. The exhibition unfolds as a story about subjects such as beauty, journey, childhood and being young at heart.
Twan Janssen regularly posts a text about art on Facebook. He invites you to think and respond. The reactions to these posts make it clear that his perspective is highly appreciated. The personal experience of art is also characteristic of the relationship between collectors and their artworks; that’s why Parts Project is pleased to present the exhilarating exhibition – The Future is Female.
