Museum van LoonVereniging Rembrandt Masterpieces in Van Loon: Art, Inspiration and Relevance, Museum Van Loon, Amsterdam, 2020
Museum Van Loon is exhibiting six masterpieces from its own collection, varying in time and discipline. Three speakers are highlighting the relevance of each work in a short film. First a (museum) expert: why is this part of the special public art collection? Then a creative person: how does this work inspire new art forms? And finally a layman: why, without having a professional connection to this work, is it relevant to him or her? The presentations can be viewed on tablets in the museum and are being screened in the coach house.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition will be on view from 2 October to 29 November 2020.

Museum Kennermerland in Beverwijk is exhibiting the presentation 'Characteristic Arts and Crafts. Kinheim Carpet Weaver and Potterie Kennemerland 1918-1939.' Kinheim carpets and Potterie Kennemerland have similarities and stylistic and design connections.

The combination of unique carpets and characteristic pottery gives a surprising insight into the new design language and colourful decorations of the Nieuwe Kunst art movement.

Stadsarchief AmsterdamVereniging Rembrandt Turner - Silence in the City, Amsterdam City Archives, 2020
The Amsterdam City Archives is presenting one of its masterpieces, Westermarkt by the great English painter Benjamin Brecknell Turner. The photograph, taken in 1857 using the oldest photographic process, calotype, wrongfoots viewers. The prolonged exposure erased all movement. The city appears deserted, as if in lockdown. Fragile photographs like this rarely leave the safety of the depository. For two months, the public has the opportunity to enjoy the mysterious beauty and claire-obscure of the oldest photographs of Amsterdam.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition will be on view from 4 August 2020 to 25 October 2020.

The museum acquired this 'Cupboard with Old Testament Scenes' by Hendrik Nicolaas Werkman (1882-1945) in 2017 with support from the Rembrandt Association.

The panels have recently been thoroughly restored; which is occasion to show visitors the story of the cabinet and its restoration in a new presentation.

In a new presentation of its permanent collection, Castle-Museum Sypesteyn in Loosdrecht has focused on the rose as an overarching theme of fragile beauty. The central feature is the eighteenth century 131-piece Rose service, the earliest known and most elaborate Loosdrecht porcelain set and an undisputed masterpiece in the museum collection. It is richly decorated with rocaille ornamentation, gold decorations, painted garlands, and branches with roses. Outside, the focal point is the return of old rose varieties to the castle garden.

Museum Prinsenhof Delft is presenting three masterpieces by the successful Delft portrait painter Michiel Jansz. van Mierevelt (1566-1641).

The works are flanked by a self-portrait of Van Mierevelt recently obtained from the State on long-term loan, in which he symbolically hands over his brush to his grandson Jacob Delff II.

Het Gouverneurshuis Museum in Heusden has a special collection of eighteenth-century water board glasses. These 'hand cups' were donated in the second half of the eighteenth century by new members of the water board college to the local water board. Thanks to beautiful engraving, each glass tells a unique story about the donor and his social and political background. New showcases and an interactive audio tour illustrate even better the story of the glasses, the history of the water board, and the eternal struggle against water.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition has been on permanent view since 24 October 2020.

Museum KronaVereniging Rembrandt 'Our Lady ter Linde - Comforter in the Hour of Need', Museum Krona, Uden, 2020
A cult statue of the Virgin Mary has occupied a central place in Museum Krona in Uden since this summer. According to local tradition, the Virgin Mary has been venerated in Uden since the thirteenth century. This worship goes back to the appearance of a statuette of the Virgin Mary in a linden tree. On the museum's initiative and in collaboration with local healthcare, cultural and religious institutions, the chapel of Our Lady ter Linde was connected to the Troost ('comfort') project, which started in the summer to help give the inhabitants of Uden (the initial epicentre of the corona outbreak in the Netherlands) the opportunity to bid farewell to loved ones. The cult statuette is being exhibited together with the 'pia vota' in a large display case with various digital applications.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition will be on view from 18 July 2020 to 6 December 2020.

Museum Ons'Lieve Heer op SolderVereniging Rembrandt The Altar of Our Lady, Museum Our Lord in the Attic, 2020
The Altar of Our Lady at Museum Our Lord in the Attic is a popular place for visitors to stop. Amsterdammers have found comfort and encouragement in the Virgin Mary for centuries. The beautifully carved lindenwood statue of the Virgin Mary (c. 1700) with some of the original polychromy is one of the few surviving works of art from the oldest inventory of the seventeenth-century Attic Church. The museum was forced to implement an adjusted route through the museum upon reopening. This rendered the separate chapel where the Virgin Mary is displayed inaccessible. The museum has moved the Altar of Our Lady to the sanctuary opposite the main altar and has organised a special floral route through the museum.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition will be on view from 15 August 2020 to 8 December 2020.

Museum Het ValkhofVereniging Rembrandt 'Binnenste Buitenland', Museum Het Valkhof, 2020
Museum Het Valkhof in Nijmegen is organising a small exhibition Binnenste Buitenland (nearest abroad) with fifteen romantic landscape paintings of the region east of Nijmegen. The undulating region around Beek attracted many artists in the period 1810-1860, including B.C. Koekkoek (1803-1862). This generation of artists left their mark on the development of landscape art in the Netherlands. Topographical identifiability ceased to be a goal; they were captivated by the rural atmosphere and idyllic surroundings. In addition to the exhibition, the museum has organised a walking route to Ubbergen incorporating the paintings.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition will be on view from 7 August 2020 to 1 November 2020.

Museum CatharijneconventVereniging Rembrandt 'Hidden Pearl', Museum Catharijneconvent, Utrecht, 2020-2021
Museum Catharijneconvent in Utrecht is presenting The Crucifixion of the Master of the Lamentation of Christ in Lindau this summer. The painting was made in Bavaria around 1425 and shows Christ after his crucifixion in the presence of his mother Mary and John the Evangelist. Few paintings of this quality have survived from this period, making The Crucifixion an important work. It will be thoroughly restored in the coming time, and the first cleaning test yielded spectacular results. The museum is organising an in-depth presentation on this hidden gem in its collection and the importance of the work and its restoration.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition will be on view from 1 August 2020 to 20 September 2020, followed by 'Body Language. The body in medieval art' from 25 September 2020 to 17 January 2021.

Het Nieuwe InstituutVereniging Rembrandt Hygiene tour by way of ten art objects in Sonneveld House, Het Nieuwe Instituut, 2020-2021
The Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam manages the adjacent museum, Sonneveld House, an icon of Nieuwe Bouwen modernist architecture built in 1933 and opened to the public in 2001. Public information has until now emphasised the house's beauty and luxury. The Covid-19 pandemic has prompted the museum to develop a new audio tour by way of several top pieces in the collection. Visitors can experience how the formulation of architecture and design a hundred years ago was dominated by hygiene and health and the design solutions this led to.

The Turing Foundation and the Rembrandt Association are contributing towards this exhibition as part of their project 'The power of our Dutch collections'. The exhibition will be on view from 1 September 2020 to 1 September 2021.

Museum Henriette Polak in Zutphen is the museum for Dutch figurative art with work by among others Kees Verwey, Charlotte van Pallandt, Wim Oepts, Arie Schippers and Wendelien Schönfeld. This summer the museum organised a presentation with works by Wim Oepts (1904-1988). The painter was a virtuoso user of colour and is the museum's most popular artist.

Museum In' t Houten Huis in De Rijp organised a presentation about the collection of domestic objects painted by father and son Arie and Willem Spaarman at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth century.

Amerongen Castle has a unique textile collection which has been cared for and restored for 40 years by a group of volunteers, the 'Angels'. This summer Amerongen Castle paid tribute to the textile collection and the Angels by exhibiting an eighteenth-century palempore from India: a colourful canvas depicting a tree in blossom, surrounded by birds, flowers and insects. The large dimensions of the palempore mean it is only rarely exhibited to the public.

Centraal Museum Acquisition of 'Granido and Daifilo' (1623) van Dirck van Baburen, Centraal Museum, Utrecht, 2020
Centraal Museum has acquired a work by Dirck van Baburen, an Utrecht caravaggist and founder of pastoral painting. The Utrecht nobleman Pieter van Hardenbroeck commissioned the canvas in 1623 to commemorate his budding love for his wife. Van Baburen portrayed them as Granida and Daifilo (a Persian princess and a simple shepherd). His first-class canvas was the earliest depiction of a theme that would be incredibly popular from this time. The acquisition forms a unique diptych together with another highlight in the museum's collection - Gerard van Honthorst's beautiful Granida and Daifilo, painted in 1625.

The artwork was sold at a public auction in January 2020. The Turing Foundation provided € 50,000 to enable the Centraal Museum to increase their bid at the art auction. The museum acquired the work without having to utilise the Turing Foundation's contribution.

Van Gogh MuseumDrents Museum Acquisition of Vincent van Gogh's 'Farmer Burning Weeds' (1883), Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, 2019-2020
The Drents Museum and the Van Gogh Museum have acquired one of Vincent van Gogh's early paintings: Farmer Burning Weeds (1883). This small but powerful work depicts a lonely figure on a deserted plain at dusk, illuminated by a small fire. Van Gogh painted it in Drenthe, in the north-east of the Netherlands, where he spent the autumn of 1883 and captured the landscape in paintings and drawings. This is one of the few paintings from this period to have survived. The artwork was sold at a public auction.

The Turing Foundation committed € 110,000 to enable the museums to increase their bid at the art auction. The museums acquired the work without having to utilise the Turing Foundation's provision.

Beelden aan Zee 'Niki de Saint Phalle aan Zee', Museum Beelden aan Zee, Scheveningen, 2019-2020
The work of the French sculptor and painter Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) is regarded as Nouveau Realism and is associated with Pop Art. The self-taught Saint Phalle played an important role in female empowerment in the art world in the 1960s and 1970s, and she is renowned for her monumental works, including the Nanas - opulent, brightly coloured female figures. These cheerful primaeval mothers are an ode to women as the source of life. These Nanas, also called bathers, are the focus of the retrospective exhibition 'Niki de Saint Phalle at Sea' at Museum Beelden aan Zee. A total of 80 international loans will illustrate the Nanas development in all their diversity from 1965. The Nanas will not be highlighted solely as an iconic image of women but will also be placed in the context of the ongoing discussion of gender relations, equal treatment and the #metoo movement.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 25,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 5 October 2019 and 1 March 2020.

Drents Museum Sprezzatura, 50 years of Italian Painting 1860-1910, Drents Museum, 2019
In 2019 the Drents Museum is organising an exhibition on Italian painting in the period 1860 - 1910. Over 70 works from approximately 30 (mostly Italian) collections give an impression of the development of Italian painting in the five decades after the unification of Italy in 1861 - the risorgimento. The overview consists of works by around fifty artists and includes a wide variety of styles and themes, most of which have never previously been exhibited in the Netherlands.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €20,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 2 June and 3 November 2019.

Kunstmuseum Den Haag "Monet. The garden paintings", Kunstmuseum Den Haag, 2019-2020
For the first time in 30 years the Kunstmuseum Den Haag is organising a monographic exhibition on Claude Monet (1840-1926), in which the artist's development in the last 25 years of his life will take centre stage. Monet retired around 1900 to his home in Giverny, where he focused on depicting his flowery garden. The work he created there was initially still impressionist, but over time Monet used an increasingly expressive and almost abstract visual language. Exhibiting Monet's images of water lilies and wisteria clearly demonstrates this development. As well as two works from its own collection, the Gemeentemuseum is displaying more than 30 works from foreign collections.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €75,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 12 October 2019 and 2 February 2020

Stedelijk Museum Schiedam Main supporter "Manzoni in Holland", Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, 2018-2019
Piero Manzoni was one of the great innovators in visual arts in the 20th century. In his short life (1933-1963) he produced an impressive oeuvre and was highly influential on the development of conceptual art. The Stedelijk Museum Schiedam's 'Manzoni in Holland' exhibition is the first time in almost 50 years that his work is being exhibited on a large scale in the Netherlands. It shows Manzoni's artistic development in the context of his collaboration with Dutch galleries and artists, and his influence on the Dutch nul-kunstenaars ('zero artists'), conceptual artists in the 1960s, and the ZERO movement in Rotterdam and internationally.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €50,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 16 February and 2 June 2019.

Bonnefanten Museum Maastricht Master of Elsloo 'From lonely hand to collection of masters', Bonnefantenmuseum, 2017-2019
In the 16th century the so-called 'Master of Elsloo' worked in the Euroregion of Dutch and Belgian Limburg and the adjacent German region. This was a collective name for a group of highly skilled carvers. The Bonnefantenmuseum - which owns six figures attributed to the Master of Elsloo - is organising an international exhibition on the subject in 2017, in which the results of multidisciplinary research on the subject will also be presented.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €60,000 towards this exhibition, earmarked for the marketing and communication required to engage a wide audience with this particular topic.

Kunsthal KadeMuseum Flehite "Maestro van Wittel, Dutch master of the Italian townscape", 2019
Kunsthal KAdE and Museum Flehite are organising an exhibition in 2019 about the artist Caspar van Wittel (1653 - 1736), who was born in Amersfoort. Van Wittel went to Rome in 1674, and using the name 'Gaspare Vanvitelli', caused a furore. He is regarded as the founder of vedutism, the genre of townscapes with which successors such as Canaletto, Bellotto and Guardi would later have great triumphs. There will be around 40 paintings and 25 drawings with which the Dutch public can get acquainted with the artist Van Wittel, who is unknown in his native country. His works are being exhibited in combination with work by his Dutch predecessors and Italian successors. The Turing Foundation is contributing € 40,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 19 January and 25 Mei 2019.

Centraal Museum "Utrecht, Caravaggio and Europe", Centraal Museum, Utrecht, 2018-2019
One of the Centraal Museum's core collections is the Utrecht Caravaggists. From the autumn of 2018, the museum will present a special overview that will provide insight into the way the three Utrecht painters Gerard van Honthorst, Dirck van Baburen and Hendrick ter Brugghen were influenced by Caravaggio during their travels to Rome in the early 17th century. Their most beautiful works will be juxtaposed with that of their Italian, French, Spanish and Flemish colleagues. A total of 70 works will be exhibited, including 48 paintings from international collections - culminating in Caravaggio's The Entombment of Christ from the Vatican museums.

The Turing Foundation is supporting this exhibition (14 December 2018 to 24 March 2019) with a contribution of € 50,000.

Frans Hals Museum "Frans Hals and the Moderns", Frans Hals Museum, 2018-2019
Frans Hals is regarded as one of the most innovative painters of the Dutch Golden Age for his characteristic virtuoso brushstroke. The artist fell into oblivion in the 18th century, but was rediscovered in the 19th century by international top painters. Edouard Manet, John Singer Sargent, Vincent van Gogh and others travelled to Haarlem to study Hals' portraits. With the exhibition 'Frans Hals and the Modernists', the Frans Hals Museum wants to provide insight into the relationship between Hals' work and that of the late 19th-century artists who admired him. A total of 60 works from international collections will be coming to Haarlem. The Turing Foundation is contributing € 50,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 12 October 2018 to 10 February 2019.

Museum Boijmans van Beuningen "Pure Rubens", Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam, 2018-2019
At the end of 2018, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, together with the Museo Nacional del Prado, is presenting an exhibition of Pieter Paul Rubens' oil sketches. Rubens prepared many of his compositions with painted sketches on panel. Unlike many of his large paintings, the oil sketches are entirely Rubens' own work, giving an unprecedented insight into his mastery and virtuosity. A total of 60 works are coming to Rotterdam, most of them from the Prado.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 50,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 8 September 2018 to 13 January 2019.

Museum de Fundatie "Giacometti - Chadwick, Facing Fear", Museum de Fundatie, Zwolle, 2018-2019
From 22 September 2018 to 6 January 2019, Museum de Foundatie is organising an exhibition of the works of Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) and Lynn Chadwick (1914-2003 ). Together they contributed decisively to the modern face of sculpture in the second half of the twentieth century. Museum de Fundatie wants to show that the artists experienced a parallel development in the 1950s and 1960s: both felt the threatening apocalypse of the Cold War after the euphoria of liberation and both portrayed this fear of death in their work. 28 sculptures and 37 works on paper by Alberto Giacometti are being exhibited and 40 sculptures and 20 to 40 works on paper by Lynn Chadwick.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 40,000 towards this exhibition.

Design Museum Den Bosch "Jean Cocteau / Metamorphosis", Design Museum Den Bosch, 2018-2019
Jean Cocteau (1889-1963) was an incredibly versatile artist who was particularly known for his visual work: he made illustrations, drawings, posters, tapestries, sculptures, ceramics and jewellery. The Design Museum Den Bosch, which collects Cocteau's ceramics and jewellery, is organising the first solo exhibition of his work in the Netherlands. The 12 works from its own collection are being exhibited in the context of the artist's total oeuvre. There is also insight into Cocteau's life and motives.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 20,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 10 November 2018 and 10 March 2019.

Museum Het Valkhof "I, Mary of Guelders", Museum Het Valkhof, 2018-2019
Mary of Guelders' prayer book is one of the greatest medieval art treasures from the Netherlands. It could not be viewed for years - neither by the general public, nor even by researchers. Museum Het Valkhof will for the first time exhibit a total of forty restored pages in 2018. In addition to the prayer book, special objects are being used to give an impression of Mary of Guelders' life.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 30,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 13 October 2018 to 6 January 2019.

Museum Prinsenhof Delft Main Supporter 'Pieter de Hooch in Delft', Museum Prinsenhof Delft, 2017-2020
Never before has Pieter de Hooch been seen monographically in the Netherlands, even though everyone in the country knows his name and work, and almost every Dutch city has a Pieter de Hooch street. This very ambitious and courageous project by Museum Prinsenhof Delft is taking De Hooch out of Vermeer's shadow. Museum Prinsenhof brings Pieter De Hooch's masterpieces and visitors' favourites from all over the world - Germany, Ireland, Spain, America, France, Austria, the UK and Russia - back to Delft: the city where this important master of the Dutch Golden Age produced his finest works. It is all being done in time for the Golden Age centenary year 2019. Thorough historical research conducted prior to the exhibition and is being combined with broad peripheral programming involving many people in Delft. This exhibition could well entice some of the many tourists from Amsterdam! It is a special achievement by an energetic team able to deliver here and now.

The Turing Foundation awarded the € 500,000 Turing Award 2017 to Museum Prinsenhof Delft for its exhibition on Pieter de Hooch, which will be open to the public from 11 October 2019 to 16 February 2020.

Beelden aan Zee Main Supporter 'Zadkine Aan Zee', Museum Beelden aan Zee, Scheveningen, 2017-2019
Exhibiting sculptures in the Netherlands is not easy. But Museum Beelden aan Zee - which was only founded 23 years ago! - has been exceptional for a long time and is now working on a grand retrospective (just say the biggest ever) of the poetic, lyrically focused and 'purely artisan' sculptor Ossip Zadkine (1890-1967). Zadkine was important to the Netherlands - which Dutchman does not know the national monument The Destroyed City, which he made in 1953 as a memorial to the bombing of Rotterdam. It was high time someone dared to exhibit a retrospective. Museum Beelden aan Zee took up the challenge. Thanks to a well thought-out concept, and more than a hundred sculptures, many of which have never before been exhibited anywhere - presented in ten overarching themes, each more intriguing than the previous one - the public will be able to learn about the versatility and scope of this Franco-Russian master of modernism.

The Turing Foundation awarded the € 150,000 Turing Award 2017 to Museum Beelden aan Zee for their 'Zadkine Aan Zee' exhibition, which will be open to the public from 6 October 2018 to 3 March 2019.

Amsterdamse School Museum Het Schip Exhibition 'Gaudi in de Amsterdamse School', Museum Het Schip, 2018-2019
Museum Het Schip has been based in the social housing block called 'Het Schip' in Amsterdam's Spaarndammerbuurt neighbourhood since 2001. The museum draws many parallels between the methods of architects of the Amsterdam School and designs by the Spanish architect Gaudi (1852-1926), and has had the opportunity to make special loans from Barcelona (ranging from doors, chairs and tiles to models and blueprints) and exhibit them in Amsterdam. The exhibition will provide insights into the sources of inspiration, symbolism and craftsmanship of Gaudi and architects of the Amsterdam School and appreciation for their work in the past 100 years.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 10,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 1 October 2018 and 1 April 2019.

Museum de Fundatie is organising the first major retrospective exhibition of the German artist Neo Rauch (1960). Rauch is one of the founders of the Neue Leipziger Schule and his big, surrealistic and narrative works appeal very much to the imagination. The exhibition will use some 60 works to illustrate the painter's development over the past 25 years. The museum has previously drawn attention to two other representatives of the Leipziger Schule, Werner Tübke and Wolfgang Mattheuer.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 50,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 27 January and 3 June 2018. This contribution is earmarked for bringing foreign (U.S.) loans to the Netherlands.

Museum van Loon 'Ferdinand Bol: Het Huis, De Collectie, De Kunstenaar', Museum van loon, Amsterdam, 2017-2018
The painter Ferdinand Bol was the first person to live in the property on the Keizersgracht in Amsterdam where the Museum Van Loon is now located. Which is why the museum has organised an exhibition about the painter's art collection, based on an inventory from 1669. The exhibition gives an impression of the collection with a total of 20 works by artists like Rembrandt, Peter Paul Rubens, Jacob van Ruisdael and Ferdinand Bol himself. The highlight of the exhibition is Rembrandt van Rijn's painting 'The Circumcision' (1661). This painting is part of the collection of the National Gallery in Washington and has not been seen in the Netherlands since 1898.

The Turing Foundation is contributing € 10,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 6 October 2017 and 8 January 2018. This contribution is earmarked for the costs of the loan of Rembrandt's 'The Circumcision' (1661).

Joods Historisch Museum Amsterdam Fauvism to Surrealism. Jewish avant-garde art from Hungary, Jewish Historical Museum, Amsterdam, 2017
In 2017 the Jewish Historical Museum is organising an exhibition on the work of Jewish avant-garde artists from Hungary: adherents of Fauvism, Cubism, German Expressionism and Surrealism. The role of these artists has been neglected, as result of which they have not gained the reputation and fame they deserve for the quality of their work. The Jewish Historical Museum wants to change this and introduce a wider audience to the work of artists like László Moholy-Nagy, Lajos Tihanyi, Róbert Berény, and Béla Czóbel.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €30,000 towards this exhibition, which will be held from 15 May 2017 to 17 September 2017.

Jean Arp (1886-1966) was a Franco-German sculptor, painter and poet, as well as being an influential artist in the European avant-garde movement. In 2017 the Kröller-Müller Museum is organising the first major retrospective of the artist's work in the Netherlands since the 1960s. The focus of the exhibition will be on the continuous interplay between visual art and poetry in Arp's oeuvre and the humour and playfulness in his work. In addition to some 80 visual works - drawings, collages, paintings, wood carvings and sculptures - poems, writings and publications penned by Arp are on display.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €40,000 towards this exhibition, which will be on display from 15 May 2017 to 17 September 2017.

Stedelijk Museum Schiedam Eye Attack, Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, 2017
The Stedelijk Museum Schiedam has had the special opportunity to take over the exhibition Eye Attack - Op Art and kinetic art from the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humblebaek, Denmark. Op Art had its glory days in the period 1960-1970; it was an international movement in which optical illusions played a major role. The museum hopes that this exhibition of about 80 representative works from this accessible and popular movement will reach a wide audience.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €25,000 towards this exhibition, which will be from 25 February to 18 June 2017.

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 Kunstmuseum Den Haag (Alexander Calder); and the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (Mike Kelley).

Mauritshuis Den Haag Slow Food: Still Lives from the Dutch Golden Age, Mauritshuis, The Hague, 2017
The Mauritshuis is working on an exhibition on still lives with made tables from the Dutch Golden Age. The museum aims to give an idea of the origin and development of this sub-genre of still life painting, which flourished at the beginning of the seventeenth century. Special loans will be coming to The Hague, including pieces by Clara Peeters, one of the few female painters of the era and a pioneer in the development of still life painting.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €45,000 towards this project. The exhibition will be from 9 March to 25 June 2017.

Stichting Tuinen van Verwondering Gardens of Wonder, NTR Dutch public-service broadcaster, 2016-2017
'Gardens of Wonder' is a project focused on presenting 'land art' or 'site-specific art'. It will involve filming a total of six sculpture gardens in various parts of the world, in which nature and (in many cases custom-made) art works reinforce one another. These documentaries ('filmed exhibitions') are being broadcast on the Dutch public television channel NPO 2 and are being shown at a number of museums in the Netherlands, including Museum Beelden aan Zee, Museum Belvédčre and the Drents Museum.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €25,000 towards this project.

Teylers Museum Jean-Antoine Watteau, Teylers Museum, Haarlem, 2017
Teylers Museum is organising an exhibition on the work of the 18th-century French artist Jean-Antoine Watteau (1684-1721). His style of painting, also known as 'fętes galantes', depicts people disporting themselves amorously in lush parks. Displaying real feelings contrasted with the formal rules of prevailing tradition in academic art at the time. Watteau is considered an avant-garde artist whose work ran counter to the style in vogue with King Louis XIV and court culture. His elegant and refined work represents a break with the heavy Baroque and marks the beginning of Rococo.

The Turing Foundation is contributing 30,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 1 February and 15 May 2017.

Hermitage Amsterdam Hollandse Meesters uit de Hermitage, Hermitage Amsterdam, 2017-2018
From the autumn of 2017 the Hermitage Amsterdam is exhibiting a survey of the Dutch Masters collection from the State Hermitage in St. Petersburg. A total of 60 Dutch masters are coming to Amsterdam, most of which (about 50 works) have rarely if ever been exhibited in the Netherlands since the 17th century. It is a generous selection of works and has many items from the State Hermitage Museum's Dutch collection: famous and beautiful works by Gerard Dou, Gerard ter Borch, Willem Kalf, Frans Hals and four paintings by Rembrandt, including the masterpieces Flora and Young Woman at a Mirror.

The Turing Foundation is contributing 100,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between 7 October 2017 and 28 May 2018.

Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam 'Jean Tinguely: Machine Spectacle', Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, 2016-2017
The Swiss artist Jean Tinguely (1925-1991) was part of the Nouveau Réalisme artistic movement and is best known for his kinetic art works. The Stedelijk Museum is organising a major retrospective of Tinguely in 2016, with an overview starting with his wire constructions from the 1950s through to his large multi-media installations from the 1980s. As well as exhibiting the cheerful character of Tinguely's art, the more complex themes in his work are also highlighted, including (self) destruction and death. The thirteen Tinguely art works in the Stedelijk Museum collection are being restored, and special loans from international museum and private collections are coming to Amsterdam for this exhibition.

The Turing Foundation is supporting this exhibition with a contribution of €50,000, earmarked for foreign loans.

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.

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.

Fries MuseumTuring Toekenning Main supporter Alma-Tadema Exhibition, Fries Museum, Leeuwarden, 2015-2017
The Fourth Turing Award I was awarded to the Fries Museum on 21 May 2015. In the run-up to Leeuwarden's year as the European Capital of Culture, the Fries Museum is organising an exhibition on Lourens - Sir Lawrence - Alma-Tadema, the originally Frisian painter who created an unprecedented furore in Victorian Britain. Alma-Tadema looked in an innovative way at space in both his work and how people moved in it. His dreamy and sometimes also hysterical paintings were reviled for generations after World War I, when a changing art world harshly judged the Victorian era. This reached its nadir in the 1960s, when his work was unsold at asking prices as low as €300. He has been reassessed more recently. One of his works recently set a new auction record for Victorian paintings, having been sold for 35 million dollars. This makes it all the more ambitious to attempt now, twenty years after the Van Gogh Museum did so for the first time ever, to bring his work together.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €500,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between October 2016 and February 2017.

Stedelijk Museum AlkmaarTuring Toekenning Main supporter Caesar van Everdingen, Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar, 2015-2017
The Fourth Turing Award II was presented to the Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar on 21 May 2015 to enable the exhibition 'Flattering Brush. Caesar van Everdingen (1616-1678)'. On the occasion of the 400th anniversary of Caesar van Everdingen's birth, the Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar is organising an exhibition on this little known, but very intriguing, exceptional and outstanding seventeenth century painter. In the place in which he was born and lived: Alkmaar. Alongside the eleven of his paintings that the museum owns, some 30 works on loan are coming from abroad. This will enable the exhibition to give a worthy overview of his oeuvre and his specific qualities.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €150,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between September 2016 and January 2017.

Rijksmuseum van Oudheden Nineveh, Dutch National Museum of Antiquities, Leiden, 2017-2018
In the first millennium BC Nineveh was the world's largest city and the capital of the Neo-Assyrian Empire. The Assyrian Empire and Nineveh collapsed in 612 BC. As a result of excavations in the 19th century its material culture has been scattered over museums across the world. The National Museum of Antiquities' 'Nineveh' exhibition in Leiden will reunite this material for the first time, and bring the city back to life.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €50,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between October 2017 and March 2017.

A total of 200 top works from the Netherlands and abroad will demonstrate why the Buddha has inspired people for 2,500 years, and how the spread of Buddhism is part of world history. This exhibition will look at Buddhist art from an art historical point perspective, but the objects will also be put in their cultural context.

Rijksmuseum Amsterdam Hercules Segers, Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, 2016-2017
In 2016 the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam is organising an exhibition on Hercules Segers (1589/90 - 1633/38), one of the most intriguing artists of the Dutch Golden Age. His work is distinguished by its individualistic and timeless character, resulting in him being an inspiration to generations of artists and art lovers. Exhibiting prints of all his etchings and all known paintings is the ideal manner in which to enable a large Dutch and international audience to get acquainted with the originality and imagination of this relatively unknown artist.

The Turing Foundation is contributing €80,000 towards this exhibition, which can be seen between October 2016 and January 2017.

Kröller-Müller MuseumHelene Kröller-Müller Fonds 'Barbara Hepworth. Sculpture for a Modern World', Kröller-Müller Museum, 2015-2016
The Kröller-Müller Museum is organising a Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975) retrospective, 50 years after the last exhibition of her work in the Netherlands. The exhibition's emphasis is on the prominent role this important British sculptor played in the international art world and on the context in which her work was created and presented. The arrangement is intended to provide an overview from the modest stone sculptures from Hepworth's early days as an artist to the ambitious later bronzes, which are part of some of the large sculpture collections in the world. In addition to the Kröller-Müller Museum's own Hepworth collection, major foreign loans are being brought to Otterlo.

The Turing Foundation contributes €50,000 towards the exhibition, which starts at the end of 2015. The contribution is earmarked for the loan costs.

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.

Van Gogh Museum Munch / Van Gogh expositie, Van Gogh Museum, 2014-2016
The artists Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) and Edvard Munch (1863-1944) are both renowned for their emotionally charged paintings and drawings, their innovative styles, and their troubled lives. Both wanted to modernise art, and to that end they resorted to universal, expressive imagery. In close collaboration with the Munch Museum in Oslo, the Van Gogh Museum will be organising the exhibition ‘Munch / Van Gogh’, highlighting the artistic kinship between the two artists.

The Turing Foundation will be donating € 100,000 to the exhibition, which will run from September 2015 up until and including January 2016.

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.

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.

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.

Museum de FundatieRijksmuseum Twenthe William Turner exhibition, Museum de Fundatie and Rijksmuseum Twenthe, 2015-2016
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.

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.

Museum 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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

Rembrandthuis Exhibition Old Drawings, New Names, Rembrandt House Museum, 2013-2014
In 2014, the Rembrandt House Museum will be hosting an exhibition of 17th-century drawings by Rembrandt, his apprentices and contemporaries. The museum will be showing drawings that include works formerly considered Rembrandt’s, which have been credited to other painters in recent decades. Based on works by Rembrandt, some of his apprentices, and contemporaries like Ferdinand Bol, Govert Flinck, and Arent de Gelder, the exhibition provides insight into the study of 17th-century drawing.

The Turing Foundation will be supporting the exhibition with € 25,000.

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.

Hermitage Amsterdam Exhibition 'Les Nabis: Gaugin, Bonnard, Denis, Prophets of the Avant-Garde', Hermitage Amsterdam, 2013-2014
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.

Van Abbemuseum Exhibition 'Lissitzky-Kabakov. Dromen en Leven', Van Abbemuseum, 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 Abbemuseum 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.

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.

More information about the Turing Art Award can be found on the Turing Art Award Website.

Museum Belvédčre Main patron Paula Modersohn-Becker ‘Ein Wunderland, Ein Götterland’, Museum Belvedere, 2012-2013
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.

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.

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.

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.

Kunstmuseum 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
