May 20th, 1.30 pm, Fries Museum, Turfmarkt 11, Leeuwarden
Fries Museum, Jap Sam Books and myvillages.org would like to invite you to IMAGES OF FARMING, a book launch and mini-symposium.
There are few topics that conjure up as many images as farms and farming. Reflections on images of farming lie at the crossroads between culture, myth formation, heritage and visual arts.
We look forward to sharing these reflections with you at this special event.
13:30 Opening and welcome
14:00 Introduction by Henk Keizer (Chair). Wapke Feenstra and Antje Schiffers (eds) introduce myvillages.org and the collaboration with Jap Sam Books
14:30 Joint presentation by Nynke Rixt Jukema (architect) and Wapke Feenstra (artist) highlighting changing farmland and artistic practices
15:45 Talk by Alexandra Gaba-Van Dongen about ALMA, an art history research project on what the tools and utensils depicted on paintings tell us about customs and practices – especially in rural environments
16:30 Close, followed by drinks and traditional farmhouse snacks
