Christie van der Haak: More is More

Fresh Art International

Launched from a park bench in Brooklyn in 2011, Fresh Art International is the independent art media outlet producing the signature Fresh Art International audio podcast. Fresh Art International broadcasts and archives the voices of contemporary cultural producers from around the globe on multiple online platforms.


Today, Fresh Art International’s founder and director, Cathy Byrd, will be in conversation with Christie van der Haak, with Silvia Barisione and Sharon Misdea, discussing More is More at The Wolfsonian.


Dutch artist Christie van der Haak, with Silvia Barisione and Sharon Misdea, of The Wolfsonian museum on Miami Beach, will talk about the influence of Modern Dutch design on Christie’s work and how the artist responded to the historic architecture of the building situated a few blocks from Untitled Miami Beach on 10th St. and Washington Ave. In wrapping The Wolfsonian’s iconic facade and lobby with her signature tapestry and batik-inspired patterns, The Hague-based contemporary artist creates an encounter with contemporary Dutch design that’s both monumental and immersive.
