XYZ AMS invaded the Daily Paper Flagship store opening with its exhibition “COUP D’ETAT” in April 2016.
Representing a diverse group of artists in style and temperament, unified by our spirit of independence and rebellion. Not so much a government takeover, more a determination to make our artists the master of their own destiny. Seizing control and declaring our rogue state, we make it our mission to overthrow the formal and boring impression of art.
The exhibition ‘1,2 1,2’ is an incredible overview of Ilja Meefout’s career path of 12 years, in which he has captured photos of notable national and international Hip Hop artists. From Wu-Tang Clan and Snoop Dogg to Lil Wayne and Pusha T.
With his eye behind the lens, Meefout tries to capture how he interprets one’s music; often under non-ideal circumstances and also not necessarily on stage. His unique way of working has earned him the title of ‘the leading Dutch Hip Hop photographer’.
Studio XYZ AMS joins forces with Tolhuistuin for Museum Night on November 7th . Visitors were invited to participate and truly be a part of Studio XYZ AMS.
The works of photographers Ali Mousavi, Ilja Meefout and Rein Kooyman, as well as the artists Bo Bosk, Euge Louisa and Steven Sikkens were exhibited.
Visitors also got the chance to pick up a brush and participate in creating a collective art piece.
The beauty of nature. Something that many of us can appreciate. However, do we stop and think about how she stimulates our busy existence? The debut exposition of Rein Kooyman (1992) ‘thanks.’, portrays the past 8 years of his landscape photography during his professional career as a photographer.
The ‘thanks’ is aimed towards nature, where Rein always found acceptance and inspiration and what made him into the photographer and the person he is today.
