out of storage
Yesterday I visited the exhibition "Out of Storage". The exhibition takes place in the "Timmerfabriek" in Maastricht and it's the former crate factory of the ceramics factory Sphinx. It was built in 1905 and has been on the list of national monuments since 1996. It's a beautiful old building and I think it's great that it's not been demolished, but they made someting else out of it. I love it when exhibitions take place in a different kind of building, not only in museums.
The exhibition consists hundreds of artworks from the collection of FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais. Some of them are on display during the whole exhibition period, some works of art are being replaced by others in the course of time. Of you live nearby or planning a vacation over here, you should visit this exhibition, the building alone is worth it!
