What The Fuck? Shoe at STRAAT - Niels Shoe Meulman - October 9th, 2020 - June 20th, 2021
It remains a huge honor that our very first STRAAT Gallery exhibition featured none other than Dutch icon Niels Shoe Meulman. He even blessed our museum exhibition with a cool installation called Shoe in the middle, of which we captured the making of. If you would like to relive our gallery’s opening exhibition, which features some of Shoe’s finest work including his signature calligraffiti style, then check out this cool little video we put together. Furthermore, you can find the exhibition catalogue here, as well as a handy overview of work by Shoe which you can still grab via our online shop.
Out There Somewhere - The Jaunt: Wasted Rita & Tellas - June 25th - September 19th, 2021
The follow-up to our inaugural exhibition with Shoe was the first of many great gallery collaborations with other culture-shaping projects. We joined forces with Denmark-based project The Jaunt to present the exhibition Out There Somewhere featuring two of The Jaunt’s veterans, Tellas and Wasted Rita, along with a stunning overview of The Jaunt prints straight from their archives. You can check out the Tellas and Wasted Rita exhibition catalogue, The Jaunt print archive and handy overviews of both Tellas’ flora and foliage and Wasted Rita’s sarcastic wisdom. Furthermore, Both Tellas and Wasted Rita visited the museum during the exhibition to add mural-scale works to our collection.
