'Grenzeloos Tekenen' at Schlessart

September 1 - 23, 2018
Schlessart | Voert 18A | 1861 PE Bergen NH


This group show intends to make visible the contemporary art of drawing and the diversity that is currently going on in this area. Dutch drawing has a rich history, which, in addition to other art forms, has now achieved a worthy position.

What is striking is that for decades the visual language of artists who work on paper seems to be inexhaustible. Public and museum interest in contemporary drawing has grown enormously in recent years.

Contemporary Transformations


April 26 - June 11, 2018

Duke Contemporary Art Space

999 Gaysorn Village, 1 st Fl., Phloen Chit Rd., Lumphini, Pathumwan, Bangkok


Curated by Manfredi Style — the Italian Art & Design multidisciplinary initiative based in Florence and Singapore—which explores the changes of our society through Art.


Human Figures, Landscapes and Cultural Artifacts transform, evolve, turn into new shapes, while South-Asia embraces this transformation at an astonishingly swift pace.


On occasion of this show, Manfredi Style will showcase the large human-sized sculptures by Dario Tironi (Italy), crafted with an ensemble of found objects and resins;  the portrait sculptures made of recycled wood by Strook (Belgium); the paintings of street artist Laurent Peybernes (France), presenting for the occasion a special artwork combined with augmented reality technology; the abstract photographs of Luuk de Haan (Nethelands) and the altered landscapes photographs of Paolo Giordano (Italy) as well as the Super Hero-themed prints, intertwining with political figures, by Alessandro Rabatti (Italy). Manfredi Style will be unveiling other artworks for this exhibition.

Volar by Longplay and nine rare poems by Joost Zwagerman

release date: 18 February 2018


On November 23, 1999, the formation Longplay met at the Prado Studio in Amsterdam to dedicate themselves – for an unlimited period of time – to a number of their compositions. Dutch poet Joost Zwagerman heard the demo and wrote nine poems related to the compositions. The nine poems by Zwagerman with the composition of the same name Volar were published in 2000 in the Rotterdam cult magazine Green Groceries. The album Volar then fell into the background due to other artistic activities.


Now after 18 years, the poems and Volar have been realized as a bibliophile limited edition of 100 copies.

This special edition, including a silkscreen (76 x 51.5 cm, folded to 19 x 13 cm) by Longplay, costs 19.90 euros incl. shipping costs.

You can order these by sending an e-mail to Please include your name and address.

It was a great honor and challenge to select images from my oeuvre for this book for the excellent poems by Joost Zwagerman. Once again I realized what a loss Joost is to the world and the world of the arts in particular.
