Museumplein, Amsterdam. Holland Festival / Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
Museumplein in Amsterdam
1–26 June 2011
This extraordinary work, by one of the leading figures associated with Conceptual art, will be installed in Amsterdam’s Museumplein, in front of the forthcoming annex of the Stedelijk Museum (currently under construction). Your Name in Lights will also be available to watch online, via a live stream on the dedicated website. With this dynamic and participatory public artwork, the Stedelijk Museum sets the stage for the Museumplein to be not only the gateway to the renewed museum, but also a major venue for the presentation of contemporary art.
