Modern Art Continues to Reach out into Amsterdam

I wrote earlier in the year about the 2009 outreach programme Amsterdam’s Stedelijk Museum had for modern art in Amsterdam.  Soon the Stedelijk will return to its home back in the city’s main Museum Square (Museumplein), but they continue the Modern Art in the City programme.  Right now they have the ‘construction cabin’ which is sort of a travelling cafe-cum-art-exhibit roaming the suburbs.

What really caught my eye though was the recent paper ladders exhibit.  I think the pictures speak for themselves.  How fun!

There is something about the simplicity and fragile nature of these ladders, perhaps at odds with their environment.

If you’re in Amsterdam, don’t miss out on the Stedelijk experience – in whatever shape or form it might be at the time.  I hear they serve good coffee.  :)
