  • KEITH HARING CANVAS RETURNS TO THE STEDELIJK

    On October 12, the velum painted by Keith Haring (1958-1990) will finally be back on display again at the Stedelijk Museum. The American artist painted the canvas, which filters daylight into the grand hallway, especially for his solo exhibition at the Stedelijk back in 1986. For this show, Haring didn’t simply want to present artwork he’d already made – he insisted on making new work. Now, more than thirty years later and restored, the velum is back for everyone to enjoy. The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam will organize a Friday Night program that will honor the return of the Keith Haring canvas with a minilecture, interviews and artist talks. More info HERE.


  • YOUR NAME

    From the innovative director Makoto Shinkai comes Your Name (Kimi no Na Wa), a beautiful fantasy masterpiece about time, the thread of fate, and the hearts of two young souls.

Amsterdam's LAB111 has the honours to screen the film early on October 13, 21:30. If you're interested, get tickets HERE.

Acclaimed director Wong Jing took it upon himself to take a shot at it again, rebooting a 1991 blockbuster and recruiting none other than Andy Lau and Donnie Yen to reprise their legendary roles as Lee Rock and Cripple Ho. All the ingredients for success are there: All star cast - check. Corny title - check. Illegal immigrant coming up in British-colonized Hong Kong - check. Peep the trailer below.
