Revealing our stored treasures

Revealing our stored treasures is the title of the exhibition by Readytex Art Gallery which showcases a prime selection of the gallery’s collection.

The art scene in Suriname is rapidly changing, and thus the way the work is exhibited has changed too. Readytex Art Gallery, once the only ‘real’ art gallery in Suriname with a continuous exhibition schedule, has proven to become too small for all purposes. De Hal is a very welcome addition. It is very nice to see such a varied but still coherent selection of high quality art.

Lygia Matawi and Ada Korbee selected the work. The work was hanged in groups. The first idea was to fill the walls, to reflect the overflowing storage space of the gallery.  But that proved to be a fun idea but it didn’t work out in reality.
