RKD Netherland Institute for art History
Anita Hopmans worked for twenty years for the RKD in various roles, from Head of Collections & Research to Senior Programme Manager (Museological) Research, often with a focus on Modern and Contemporary Art. She also contributed to RKD’s Sources Series and the RKD Digital Research project, which was subsidized by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency. As of 2020, she is involved in various external research and exhibition projects as Senior Curator, most recently Singer Laren's successful exhibition: Kees van Dongen – The road to success and the inspiring exhibition Van Gogh, Cézanne, Le Fauconnier & the Bergen School in Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar.
At this symposium, Irene Meyjes (former information specialist RKD), Wietse Coppes (Curator De Stijl Archives / Editor Mondrian Edition Project), Marjan van Heteren (curator Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar), Gwendolyn Boevé-Jones (owner and senior restorer Redivivus), Jeroen Stumpel (emeritus professor of Iconology and Art Theory at Utrecht University/guest emeritus professor TU Delft) and Jan Rudolph de Lorm (museum director Singer Laren) will speak about their collaboration with Anita Hopmans and the RKD.
After the symposium we will raise a glass to Anita’s succesful career and conclude the afternoon with drinks.
