Fly softly, Panamarenko


The artist Panamarenko died last Saturday. He brought poetry within reach and allowed us to dream about distant worlds. Fly softly, Panamarenko.

Since the founding of the Museum of Contemporary Art in 1975, Panamarenko has been a key artist for the museum. It is no coincidence that the first acquisition for the collection was the work ‘Deltavliegtuig P-1 Piewan’ (1975). This was joined by the artist’s magnum opus in 1980, when the museum purchased ‘The Aeromodeller’ (1969-1971). Together with numerous other sculptures and drawings, these works form a coherent ensemble that can undoubtedly be seen as one of the cornerstones of the S.M.A.K. collection.

From 8 February 2020, we will be presenting a selection of works on paper that provide a deeper insight into the fascinating creative process of this exceptional artist.
