Queen Máxima made quite the arrival into the city
Queen Maxima – here in a photo of the municipality of Groningen, together with mayor Koen Schuiling – came to the Groninger Museum this morning, for the official opening of the children’s biennale.
The Queen came to Groningen by car from the royal palace, and within the municipality of Groningen, her car was escorted by five motorcycle police officers, so her arrival did not go unnoticed.
The Groninger Museum is the first museum in the Netherlands to organise a Children’s Biennale: a major biennial interactive art exhibition by children. What is special is that children are actively involved in everything that comes with an exhibition in a museum, reports the GIC.
During this first Dutch edition, eleven works of art by national and regional artists will be on display, with Groningen artists in particular. There is work by international artists Andreas Schlegel & Hazel Lim-Schlegel, Donna Ong and Eko Nugroho. The Dutch artists are Bert Schoeren, Chantalla Pleiter, Harry Arling; Lambert Kamps, Nou & Herkauw, Sandra de Groot; Studio Maky, Werc Collective and Wies Noest.
