Huis Marseille
Museum / Amsterdam

Since 1999, Huis Marseille has been situated on Keizersgracht 401 as Amsterdam’s first photography museum. In September 2013, the museum was expanded to include the neighboring building at Keizersgracht 399, providing it with a total of fourteen exhibition spaces, including the lightwell in 399. The museum offers a rich and varied exhibition programme with changeovers about four times per year. Since the expansion in 2013, there has been a lot of opportunity to show the museum’s own collection alongside the exhibition. The collection consists primarily of leading modern (national and international) photography.

How photographers develop a new visual language that is relevant to the artistic nature of photography, but which also reflects on this time? That is the question which is central to Huis Marseille, and which informs the exhibition programme and collection acquisitions. During an age in which photography has risen to wild popularity, available to all and omnipresent as (mass) medium, photography as an artistic medium is in constant flux. Huis Marseille chooses photography which focuses on a specific visual language and is characterized by a passionate spirit of inquiry, as part of an ongoing investigation into avant-garde innovation. Moreover, photography in Huis Marseille has social relevance and interfaces with the changing spirit of the times.

  • Emily Ferguson: It Girl.
    Jun 1 – Jul 13, 2024
    Nicodim Gallery
    Los Angeles, USA
    What’s an It Girl? An image of an seraphic figure, glowing almost too bright to be looked at until the flashbulbs recharge and the cameras become visible. Glamoured, the viewer is still seeing spots and rubbing their eyes as the figure stalks out of view, no-one quite sure if she’s real or not, an apparition disappeared. An apparition, by its very nature is uncertain, the intention defined by the person who sees it – The angel becomes a monster if enough people describe it so. (more…)
