The Corso that never took place

2021 Museum Perron Oost, Amsterdam

Opening & book signing
Sunday 3.00- 5.00 pm 12 September 2021
Cruquiusweg 11 Amsterdam.

In 2020 and 2021, all kinds of activities were cancelled due to the coronavirus measures, including the Corso. As an alternative to Corso, artist Orna Wertman therefore built a roller coaster of ‘train carriages’ in this exhibition. Each carriage is an art object in itself. Visitors can go to the various ‘compartments’ and view her photo book ‘Holland Myth’.

Wertman uses low-tech and recycled materials. In the series of lectures afterwards – organised by visual artist Rosa Johanna – fellow artists and thinkers reflect on the themes that Wertman addresses in this exhibition and in her work, drawing on their own expertise and practice.
