Het Vijfde Seizoen

12 October - 28 October: To the Beat of My Own Drum

To The Beat of My Own Drum combines the audiovisual work of five artists that work on the crossroads of visual arts, the music industry and nightlife. This multi-sensory exhibition, stimulated by light, sound and moving images shows how 'high culture' and 'club culture' are closely intertwined and how these two different worlds strengthen each other.

In the exibition we present works by Boris Acket & Nick Verstand, Heleen Blanken, Jochem Esser, Anan Striker and Danielle Kwaaitaal.

The exhibition is part of Amsterdam Dance Event's Festival by Day and is freely accessible. The exhibition takes places in Beautiful Distress House and Nieuw Dakota.
