Fries Expressionisme: Not Afraid of the New

Museum Dr8888 has the second largest collection of Frisian expressionism from just after the Second World War. Never before has there been a major retrospective organized about the post-war Frisian artists' group Yn 'e Line.

This group received lessons once every three weeks in Groningen by Herman Dijkstra (1904-1976), who was greatly influenced by artists of the Dutch art collective De Ploeg. Yn 'e Line consisted of Jan Frearks van der Bij (1922-2013), Pier Feddema (1912-1983), Sjoerd Huizinga (1898-1972), Jaap Rusticus (1913-1972) and Klaas Koopmans (1920-2006). In addition to Yn 'e Line, attention is paid to Gerrit Benner, H.N. Werkman and other De Ploeg artists and Frisian contemporaries such as Boele Bregman and Sierd Geertsma. Expressionist work by artists such as Thijs Rinsema and Theo van Doesburg will also be shown. This exhibition is in collaboration with the Stichting 100 jaar De Ploeg (Foundation 100 years De Ploeg).
