There is no I @ W139, Amsterdam

Exhibition views


An international group of painters left the comfort zone of their workspaces. They will offer up their ego’s in service of the exploration of a collective work process. Initiators Aquil Copier and Raymond Cuijpers collected together a group of 20 artists who want to create a space for developments which could not exist without the artists leaving their personal universe. Participating artists are:

Papa Adama (Sawadogo), Paul Beumer, Aquil Copier, Raymond Cuijpers, Aleksandar Dimitrijevic, Wieteke Heldens, Lieven Hendriks, Jeroen Hofhuizen, Judith Kisner, Gerben Koldijk, Henrik Kröner, Marie Van Vollenhoven, Marcel Van der Berg, Evi Vingerling, Jop Vissers Vorstenbosch, Coen Vunderink, Ido Vunderink, Jasper van der Graaf

W139 presents There is no I, an experiment where painters explore the possibilities and boundaries of their work at W139. Over the course of a couple weeks, together – without a premeditated plan – they will work on large new paintings. The focus will be on the process of creation, paying attention to discussion about and reflection on painting. At the end of this intensive period of collaboration and exploration the artists of There is no I will show a tangible energy in a final presentation.
