The exhibition What We Have Overlooked (2016), curated by Mirjam Westen, displays a selection of art works acquired by Museum Arnhem over the past twenty-five years. The selection consists of artists who in their work connect social, cultural and political issues within their own local context to a broader global framework. They question taken-for-granted historical constructions, cultural identities and political institutions. Framer Framed has been dealing with similar topics since its conception in 2009; critically analysing intercultural processes in contemporary art by means of debates, exhibitions and public programs. With What We Have Overlooked, Museum Arnhem and Framer Framed aim to shed new light on these debates.
The exhibition shows works addressing the aforementioned topics, by a range of international artists. All participating artists:
Lida Abdul, Özlem Altin, Carlos Amorales, Atousa Bandeh, Melanie Bonajo, Dineo Seshee Bopape, Esiri Erheriene-Essi, Angèle Etoundi Essamba, Meschac Gaba, Regina José Galindo, Remy Jungerman, Roshini Kempadoo, Monali Meher, Zanele Muholi, Ria Pacquée, Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook, Laura Samsom-Rous, Michael Tedja, Lidwien van de Ven, Kara Walker, HW Werther.
Since the nineties, Museum Arnhem has been at the foreground of accomplishing a culturally diverse art collection. By means of shifting collection presentations in and outside Arnhem, the museum is constantly forging new connections, offering views that attract and represent both current and future generations from different cultural backgrounds.
