Turing Toekenning The Fifth Turing Art Award, 2016-2017
One of the objectives of the Turing Foundation is to get more people to enjoy art in Dutch museums. For this purpose, the Turing Foundation launched the Turing Art Award, a donation of €500,000 and a donation of €150,000 awarded every two years for the two best exhibition plans. This enables the Turing Foundation to make a decisive contribution at an early stage towards exhibitions that would be unlikely to take place without this contribution, with works that might otherwise only be seen in museums abroad. All Dutch museums are eligible to compete for the Turing Awards. More information about the award can be found on the Turing Award website. Previous awards were won by the Fries Museum (Alma Tadema); the Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar (Caesar van Everdingen); Museum Boijmans van Beuningen (Brancusi, Rosso and Man Ray); the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag (Alexander Calder); and the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (Mike Kelley). see also:

Rembrandthuis 'Rembrandt's Naked Truth', Rembrandthuis, Amsterdam, 2016
The Rembrandt House Museum is organising an exhibition on drawing nude models in Rembrandt van Rijn's time. Fifty works by Rembrandt, his predecessors, pupils and contemporaries are being showcased to illustrate how nude studies were produced and what the artists' approach was. Nude studies signed by Rembrandt are extremely rare (there are only three) and The Art Institute of Chicago is lending Rembrandt's drawing entitled Female Nude Seated on a Stool (1661) to the Rembrandt House Museum. This unique work perfectly illustrates the artist's method - and is indispensible for this exhibition - but comes with high loan costs.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €19,000 towards this exhibition, earmarked for the loan costs of Female Nude Seated on a Stool (1661) by Rembrandt. see also:

Joods Historisch Museum Amsterdam Purchase of 'Talmudic Anatomy' by Meijer de Haan, Jewish Historical Museum, Amsterdam, 2015-2016
The Jewish Historical Museum has been given the opportunity to acquire the painting 'Talmudic Anatomy' (1880) by Meijer de Haan. Popularly known as 'Is the chicken kosher?' this is an allegorical genre painting and one of Meijer de Haan's key works from his Jewish oeuvre. De Haan's life and career as an artist is exemplary of the emancipation of the Jewish community in the 19th century. This potential acquisition has been a long-held ambition of the museum, and it is an exceptional supplement to the museum's collection and to the Collection Netherlands project.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €10,000 towards the purchase of the painting 'Talmudic Anatomy' (1880) by Meijer de Haan. see also: Joods Historisch Museum Amsterdam: other projects

Van Gogh MuseumRijksmuseum AmsterdamStedelijk Museum Amsterdam Turing Museum Bus - Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, 2015
The Turing Museum Square bus transported 60,000 schoolchildren since 2012 to the three major museums in the Museum quarter (the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk Museum and the Van Gogh Museum).

The Turing Foundation was the main sponsor of this successful project, and donated a total of € 275,000 in the period 2012-2014 (of which € 60,000 in 2014). An additional contribution of € 70,000 in 2015 will cover the transport costs for that year, giving the three museums the time they need to secure future financing of the project. see also:

Rijksmuseum Amsterdam Acquisition of Jan Asselijn 'The breach of the St. Anthony's Dike', Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, 2015
Painter Jan Asselijn was an eyewitness of the breach of the St. Anthony's Dike in Amsterdam in 1651. He captured the news in a single image, like a photo journalist would do nowadays; accurate but at the same time dramatic. The height difference between the water on either side of the dike shows how much physical energy was being exerted on the dike before it collapsed, and with how much force the Zuiderzee's water is now surging through the breach towards two villages that were was still beyond Amsterdam at the time (Houtewael and Jaap Hannes), and also towards the then newly reclaimed Diemermeer Lake. Left, next to the breach on the dike, two men in bright red and blue cloaks are deliberating in the midst of the storm; on the other side of the broken dike a man is waving and seems to be shouting something while holding his hat on in the wind. Behind the dike a clear blue sky is already breaking through the cloud.

The painting was only recently 'discovered', after being part of a French family's collection for centuries. The Turing Foundation contributed €100,000 to enable the Rijksmuseum to acquire the painting. Acquisitions are not included in the Turing Foundation's funding policy. A one-off exemption has been made to purchase this particular canvas, which is both of historical and art historical importance. see also:

Kröller-Müller MuseumHelene Kröller-Müller Fonds Restoration of 'Jardin d'émail', Kröller-Müller Museum, 2015-2016
The artist Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985) designed a special object for the Kröller-Müller Museum's garden in 1974: the Jardin d'émail. This artificial (glacial) garden - a grand 20 by 30 metres in size - is a unique work of art, because visitors can walk through it and children can play on it. After 40 years of wear and tear from its many visitors and exposure to the elements, this work of art urgently needs to be restored. In 2015 the Helene Kröller-Müller Fund is starting the first phase of the restoration, in which research will be done into the creative process and the materials used.

Restorations are normally beyond the remit of the Turing Foundation's funding policies. We made a one-off exception for the exceptional artwork Jardin d'émail: the Turing Foundation is contributing €75,000 towards the first phase of the restoration. see also:

Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam 'The Oasis of Matisse', Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, 2015
Henri Matisse (1868-1954) was one of the most important and influential artists of the 20th century, and one of the founders of modern art. Matisse was confined to a wheelchair for the final years of his life, which forced to work in a different way. He became skilled in making colourful collages from paper cut-outs (découpages). The Stedelijk Museum AMsterdam intends to organise an exhibition of these cut paper collages from April 2015, centred on the masterpiece 'La perruche et la sirene' from the museum's own collection. In addition to juxtaposing this work with other cut-outs by the artist, it will demonstrate that the cut-outs are a continuation of earlier work by Matisse.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 100,000 towards this exhibition. see also:

Museum de Fundatie and Rijksmuseum Twenthe are organising a double exhibition on William Turner (1775 - 1851), the most important English Romantic painter. Turner is renowned as a painter who was far ahead of his time, for his experimental painting techniques and his use of light and colour. A total of more than thirty of Turner's works are coming to the Netherlands, and will be exhibited with approximately sixty works by other artists.

Its donation of €100,000 makes the Turing Foundation the first patron of the exhibition, which will be on display from 5 September 2015 to 4 January 2016. see also:

Turing Toekenning The Fourth Turing Art Award, 2015
One of the goals of the Turing Foundation is to have more people enjoy the fine arts in Dutch museums. Reason for the foundation to launch the Turing Grant: two donations of € 500,000 and € 150,000 awarded biannually to the two very best exhibition plans. With the grant, the Turing Foundation can make an early and crucial contribution to exhibitions that may otherwise never be realised, involving works of art that are normally on display in museums abroad only. All Dutch museums are free to compete for the Turing Grant. For more information on the Grant, visit the Turing Grant website.

Previous grants have been awarded to the Boijmans van Beuningen Museum for their exhibition Brancusi, Rosso, and Man Ray; the The Hague Municipal Museum for their exhibition of Alexander Calder and the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam for their exhibition on Mike Kelly. see also:

Rijksmuseum Volkenkunde 'Geisha', National Museum of Ethnology, Leiden, 2014-2015
The national Museum of Ethnology - owner of the largest collection of nineteenth-century Japanese art outside of Japan - is organising an exhibition on the number-one Japanese icon: the geisha. Her white face, red lips, and precious kimono make her the stereotype of Japanese beauty. The world of the geisha has been veiled in mystery and secrecy, which was reason for the National museum of Ethnology to delve into the history, position and role of the geisha in Japanese society.

The Turing Foundation will contribute € 50,000 for the loan costs involved in the exhibition, which will be on display in Leiden from October 2014 - April 2015. see also:

Van Gogh MuseumRijksmuseum AmsterdamStedelijk Museum Amsterdam Turing Museum Bus - Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, 2011-2014
For school and schoolteachers, free, comfortable and safe transport is the key factor in their decision to take their pupils to visit museums. For the Turing Foundation, this was reason for the financing of the first Turing Museum Bus in Rotterdam in 2008.

Starting in 2012, the three largest museums at the Amsterdam Museum Square (Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum and Van Gogh Museum) want to offer school children from the Amsterdam suburbs a joint programme of the highlights of their collections as well. After all, teachers of these schools, too, consider transport to be the one thing that prevents them from taking their pupils to see a museum. By means of the Turing Museum Square Bus, the three museums want to welcome 25,000 children from grades 6-8 in three years' time (approximately 20% of all school children within a 60-km radius from Amsterdam). For many, it will be their first-ever museum visit.

In total, the Turing Foundation will donate € 275,000 for the startup and transportation costs (€ 60.000 in 2014). see also:

Cultuurmenu Den HaagStichting Gezamenlijke Projecten Haagse Musea Museum Bus The Hague, 2013-2014
Since 2009, SGPHM has been transporting 25,000 primary school children to and from 19 museums and cultural heritage institutions in The Hague every year. At the museums the pupils take classes from The Culture Menu that tie in with the material they are presented with at school. SGPHM and The Culture Menu were having trouble arranging the finances because of government cuts. Thanks to contributions by Fonds 1818 and the Turing Foundation, transport for the 2013-2014 school year is now warranted.

The Turing Foundation will be contributing € 50,000 towards the bus transportation of primary school children to 19 museums and cultural heritage institutions in The Hague in the 2013-2014 school year. see also: Turing museumbussen - overzichtspagina

Chabot MuseumMuseum Boijmans van Beuningen Free transport to Boijmans van Beuningen and Chabot museums, 2011-2014
For schools, free, comfortable and safe transport is a major factor in their decision to take their students to visit museums. Since October 1, 2008, the Turing Foundation has therefore been financing a Turing Museum Bus that takes children from the Rotterdam area to and from the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen and the Chabot Museum for free. The plan is to provide museum transport for 10,000 children every year.

In a previous phase, the Turing Foundation already invested € 120,000 in the project, and now donates € 40,000 to keep the bus driving until 2014. see also:

CoBrA Museum Amstelveen Hundertwasser and Japan exhibition, Cobra Museum, 2013-2014
The Cobra Museum has been offered the unique opportunity to take over an exhibition displaying the early works of the Austrian artist Hundertwasser (1928-2000) from the Belvedere Museum in Vienna. Apart from the influence of Japanese art and Eastern philosophy, the exhibition also focuses on the influence the Parisian, Italian, and German avant-garde of the 50s have had on his works. Moreover, the Cobra Museum wants to prove there’s a connection between Hundertwasser and the Cobra artists Constant, Corneille, and Tajiri.

The Turing Foundation will be contributing € 50,000 to the exhibition, which opens 15 August 2013. see also:

Museum de Fundatie Main patron Marino Marini tentoonstelling, Museum De Fundatie, Zwolle, 2013-2014
Mario Marini is one of the most influential sculptors of the 20th century. Few people know he was also a painter en a drawer. The exhibition 'Mario Marino - painter, drawer, sculptor' focuses on the major importance of Marini's paintings and drawings. Not just by looking at his trailblazing sculptures, which wouldn't have been conceivable if not for his experiments with lines and colour, but mostly as works in their own right that are a definite part of his artistic vision. The exhibition shows 30 sculptures and 120 paintings and drawings, and has been realized in collaboration with the Fondazione Marino Marini in Pistoia, and the Museo Marino Marini in Florence.

With a € 50,000 contribution, the Turing Foundation is the main patron of the exhibition, which can be visited from September 29, 2013, up to and including March 16, 2014. see also:

From September 14, 2013 through February 28, 2014, the Hermitage will host an exhibition on 'Les Nabis', a group of French artists from around 1900 who were in search of a new way of painting. With their 'flat' paintings, well-defined lines and unmixed colours, they were considered the prophets ('Nabis' is Hebrew for prophet) of abstract art. In light of the exhibition, Ivan Morozov's Music Room and the paintings especially designed for the room, Maurice Denis' The Story of Psyche', will be reconstructed.

In total, the Turing Foundation will be donating € 90,000 to the exhibition, allowing for the reconstruction of the Music Salon. see also:

Van Abbemuseum Exhibition 'Lissitzky-Kabakov. Dromen en Leven', Van Abbe Museum, Eindhoven, 2012-2013
El Lissitzky (1890-1941) was one of the defining artists of the Russian avant-garde in the early 20th century as well as a representative of Suprematism. Under the authority of the Van Abbe Museum in Eindhoven, the artist couple Ilja (1933) and Emilia (1945) Kabakov will act as guest curators for an exhibition in which their current work is confronted with Lissitzky's.

The Turing Foundation will contribute € 50,000 to the exhibition 'Lissitzky-Kabakov. Dromen en Leven' (Dream and Live), which will be on display from December 2012 until April 2013. see also:

Turing ToekenningStedelijk Museum Amsterdam Main patron Mike Kelley, a retrospective, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, 2009-2013
The exhibition concept Mike Kelley, A Retrospective 1973 - 2010, submitted by the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, has won the Turing Art Award 2009-2010. The Turing Art Award is a € 450,000 donation to be awarded biennially to a Dutch museum for an exceptional exhibition concept. Sixteen museums submitted concepts. The Mike Kelley retrospective was deemed best in quality, originality, and concept.

Mike Kelley is regarded as one of the most important artists to enter the art scene since the seventies. His work is technically varied, complex in both form and content, and has strong psychical and emotional undertones. A complete solo exhibition of this Californian artist has never before been organised in the Netherlands. It promises to become a both fascinating and inspirational event, due to the work itself as well as to the way it will be presented - hopefully a sign of the new policy of the Amsterdam Stedelijk Museum. The exhibition can be expected to make a large new audience to become interested in modern art.

Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876-1907) is a German painter who's regarded as one of the main representatives of early expressionism. Modersohn-Becker used to live in the artistic community of Worpswede, north of Bremen, and this agricultural village has played an important role in her work. Museum Belvedere sees a clear connection between the Worpswede and Heerenveen scenery, and organizes an extraordinary exhibition on this artist in the spring of 2013. The focus of the exhibit will be on her landscapes and figure pieces.

With a € 35,000 donation, the Turing Foundation will be the main patron of this exhibition. see also:

FOAM Amsterdam Main patron Diane Arbus - A Retrospective, FOAM Amsterdam, 2010-2013
Diane Arbus (1923-1971) is one of the most fascinating and important photographers of the second half of the 20th century. Never before have The Netherlands exhibited an extensive retrospective of her work and it is unlikely to happen again anytime soon. It is especially the choice and quality of the works on display (mainly vintage prints, printed by the artist herself) that give the exhibition its extraordinary quality. This FOAM project has been nominated with the Turing Art Award 2009.

With a € 100,000 patronage, the Turing Foundation is the main patron of the exhibition, enabling FOAM to enter into a contract to realise this ambitious project. Diane Arbus - A retrospective will be on display from 25 October 2012 - 13 January 2013 in FOAM. see also:

Johannes van Eyck (1390-1440) has decisively reinvented painting in Northern Europe. He's been named the father of oil painting. In the exhibition The Road to Van Eyck. In this exhibition in collaboration with the Gemäldegalerie van het Staatliche Museum in Berlin, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen shows, based on scientific research, that development towards the works of Van Eyck can be interpreted through panel paintings, miniatures, precious metal works, sculptures and tapestries from the era. The exhibition concludes with a few of the rare works of Van Eyck (1390-1441). The project was nominated for the Turing Art Award 2011.

The Turing Foundation is the first benefactor to donate € 100,000 to the project, which can be visited in Rotterdam from October 2012 - January 2013. see also:

Turing ToekenningGemeentemuseum Den Haag Main patron Alexander Calder, Gemeentemuseum The Hague, 2011-2012
In 2008, the Turing Foundation launched the Turing Art Award, a € 450,000 donation presented biannually to the very best exhibition plan of a Dutch museum. The grant allows the Turing Foundation to make a crucial contribution to exhibitions at a very early stage, exhibitions that would probably not be realized without this grant, displaying works that can usually only be admired in foreign museums.

On May 24, 2011, the second Turing Art Award was awarded to the exhibition Alexander Calder: Movement in Space at Gemeentemuseum The Hague. The exhibition opens February 11, 2012. see also:

Chabot MuseumMuseum Boijmans van Beuningen Turing Car for the Boijmans van Beuningen Museum and the Chabot Museum 2008-2010
Free of charge, comfortable and safe transport turns out to be the primary factor to break down the barriers for schools to take their children on a visit to a museum. The Turing Foundation will therefore finance a special 'Turing Car' until 2010, that will transport children from Rotterdam and surroundings to and from the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen and the Chabot Museum free of charge. This project has the ambition to ultimately have each pupil from each primary school in the Rotterdam region go to these museums at least once in their school career.

The Turing Foundation initiated this project in 2007 and has invested € 140,000 into it until 2010. see also:

Gemeentemuseum Den Haag Main patron Louise Bourgeois - Double Sexus, Den Haag Municipal Museum, 2010-2011
Louise Bourgeois (1911) is regarded as one of the most important artists still alive today. She was recently honoured with large-scale exhibitions in Tate Modern and the Centre Pompidou. The Den Haag Municipal Museum, in association with the Berlin National Museum, wants to confront her work with that of German artist Hans Bellmer (1902-1975). It was only in 2006 that the Centre Pompidou did an extensive retrospective of Bellmer. Both artists find their origin in the surrealist tradition, their work displaying a search for identity, the relationship between men and women and a fascination for the human body. This exhibition is the first to show works of these two international artists in the Netherlands.

With a € 50,000 donation, the Turing Foundation will be the exhibition's main patron. Double Sexus will be on display from 11 September 2010 until 16 January 2011 in the Den Haag Municipal Museum. see also:

Van Gogh Museum Illusion and Reality - Van Gogh Museum, 2009-2011
On 8 October 2010 an exhibition of Naturalist painting will be opened at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, presenting huge paintings from collections all over the world. Never before has Naturalism been showcased on such a scale in the Netherlands. The way it is combined with photography and film from that period is most appropriate. The exhibition heralds a reassessment and rediscovery of these paintings, which were considered masterpieces in their time. It will be a unique and attractive exhibition that appeals to a large audience, giving a fine portrait of the era. In May 2009 this project was nominated for the Turing Award 2009.

The Turing Foundation donates € 100,000 towards Illusion and Reality; from 8 October 2010 to 16 January 2011 at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. see also:

Van Gogh Museum Vincent van Gogh: the artist and his letters, 2008-2010
Vincent van Gogh is one of the most important artists of all times. Apart from his many exceptional paintings and drawings, he also left behind one of the most fascinating artist's correspondences we know of. After years of intensive research the Van Gogh Museum publishes Vincent van Gogh's letters in a 'definitive version': 2,240 pages in 6 bound volumes, with high-quality reproductions of the originals and illustrations of all 2,000 works of art Vincent van Gogh referred to in his letters - whether these be his own works or the works of others. Furthermore, as of 9 October 2009 the Van Gogh Museum will organise an exhibition around the letters and the works the letters refer to. And a new scientific website gives access to the results of the project.

The Turing Foundation contributes € 200,000 to the publication of the letters, avaialble as of 9 October 2009. see also:

In the Autumn of 2009 The Singer Museum in Laren and the Teylers Museum in Haarlem will simultaneously present a special exhibition of the popularly acclaimed painter Anton Mauve (1838-1888).

In the Laren exhibition the emphasis will be on Mauve's influence on the genesis of the so-called "Laren School of Painting" and on realising a retrospective of a number of "American Mauves": works by Mauve that almost immediately after their creation were sold to the USA and became part of private collections.

By contributing a total sum of € 60,000 the Turing Foundation will act as the main patron of both exhibitions, which together will offer the largest retrospective ever of Mauve in the Netherlands. see also:

Turing Toekenning The First Turing Art Award, 2009
One of the aims of the Turing Foundation is to enable a greater number of people to enjoy art in Dutch museums. This is why in December 2008 the Turing Foundation initiated the Turing Art Award, a € 450,000 donation to be presented biennially to a single exhibition. In this way the Turing Foundation is able to offer key advance contributions to exhibitions that would otherwise be unlikely to be staged, with works of art that would otherwise only be on view in museums abroad. All Dutch Museums may compete for the new Turing Art Award. For more information, see the Turing Art Award Website.

Update 2009: The first Turing Art Award was granted on May 25, 2009 to the exhibition plan of the Amsterdam Stedelijk Museum. see also:

CoBrA Museum Amstelveen Main patron Paris Central, CoBrA Museum, Amstelveen, 2008-2010
The Cobra Movement was established in 1948 in Paris, the capital of European art of that time. In those years, the most important Cobra artists Appel and Jorn became part of a larger European network of (abstract) artists who worked according to the rules of the expressionist school. They are the artists of the post-war 'École de Paris'. In recent years, they have attracted a lot of renewed attention.

The CoBrA Museum continuously brings the works of Cobra artists, their contemporaries and 'kindred spirits' to the notice. In 2009, the museum organises the special exhibition Paris Central, which will focus on the School of Paris and will feature paintings by artists such as Bram and Geer van Velde, Jean Dubuffet and Henri Michaux. Many works originate from leading private and foreign collections.

By donating € 100,000, the Turing Foundation is the main patron of the exhibition Paris Central, which can be visited from September 2009 until January 2010 in the CoBrA Museum. see also:

Rembrandthuis Main patron 'Jan Lievens - A Dutch Master Rediscovered', Rembrandthuis Amsterdam, 2008-2009
Jan Lievens was a prodigy child who lived in the seventeenth century. He established himself as an independent master painter when he was only ten years old. His painting greatly influenced the work of Rembrandt. Due to a collaboration with two prestigious American partners (the Washington National Gallery and the Milwaukee Museum of Fine Art), the Rembrandthuis has succeeded in bringing 90 loans from all over the world to the Netherlands for this exhibition. One third of the objects shown in this special exhibition has never before been shown in the Netherlands.

As its main contributor, the Turing Foundation donates € 60,000 to the exhibition Jan Lievens (1607-1674) - A Dutch Master Rediscovered. The exhibition will be held from May 17 to August 9, 2009 at the Amsterdam Rembrandthuis. see also: Rembrandthuis: other projects

"Dutch Primitives: Painters from the Late Middle Ages" will run from February to May 2008 at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam. As its main sponsor, the Turing Foundation donates € 100,000 to the exhibition. see also:
