Albert Serra

7 June – 29 September 2024

Eye will present the first exhibition in the Netherlands dedicated to Catalan film, video and theatre director Albert Serra. Serra will showcase an extensive installation for Eye that will fill the entire exhibition space. This new work is based on Liberté, a controversial play staged by Serra for the Volksbühne in Berlin. The play is set during the period leading up to the French Revolution, when a group of libertines seek various forms of sexual freedom outside the conventions of the era.

New American Cinema

11 October 2024 – 5 January 2025

An Eye exhibition spotlighting avant-garde cinema from the US of the 1960s. During this period, artists revitalised the medium of film on a grand scale, using it as an artistic form. The work was no longer material to create feature films only, but rather repurposed as experimental material with which to explore the boundaries of film and art.

Eye’s exhibition space will feature a number of artists/filmmakers who are seen as trailblazers within this new artistic medium, including Stan Brakhage, Bruce Conner, Marie Menken, Shirley Clarke, Yoko Ono and Andy Warhol.

Current exhibition

20 January through 20 May 2024, Eye Filmmuseum presents Cosmic Realism, the first retrospective featuring the works of Véréna Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor. Paravel and Castaing-Taylor are continuously looking to create a fresh new film language that goes beyond traditional human-centred perspectives in anthropology.
