News item -

Starting Thursday, 28 March, artist Helen Verhoeven will present new works in Circl and the Hermitage in Amsterdam. Verhoeven is the eighth winner of the ABN AMRO Art Prize, which is awarded to encourage talented international artists in the Netherlands.

Part of the prize was the opportunity for Verhoeven to spend a year working on exhibits for the Hermitage Amsterdam. She has created a brand-new and large exhibition entitled Schamerkat, which will be on display in the Hermitage Amsterdam from 28 March until 5 January 2020.

Parallel to her exhibition in the Hermitage, Circl.ART, the project space for ABN AMRO’s art collection, will display another presentation of Verhoeven’s work. In this second presentation, entitled Eleven Women, the artist studies the classical and universal theme of the female image from a new perspective. Eleven Women will be on display in Circl until 23 May 2019.

Hermitage and ABN AMRO

ABN AMRO has been one of the Hermitage Amsterdam’s main sponsors since 2004. The bank is proud of this enduring partnership to make art and culture accessible to a wide audience. Since 2015, the Hermitage Amsterdam has provided space for the winner of the ABN AMRO Art Prize.

The Art Prize is part of the bank’s sponsorship policy, which focuses on passionate individuals from the domains of sport, art & culture and society: individuals who are eager to develop their talents, give everything they have and so become a source of inspiration for others. The Art Prize gives these artists a boost and offers them a stage where they can reach as many people as possible.
