Four museums jointly purchase work by Patricia Kaersenhout

Four museums join forces to give underrepresented heroines of resistance a place in Dutch art institutions. The monumental installation Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner Too? (2017-2019/20/21) by Patricia Kaersenhout (1966, NL) was purchased with generous support from the Rembrandt Association and Mondriaan Fund by the Frans Hals Museum Haarlem, Centraal Museum Utrecht, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven. Consisting of four large tables, each in the shape of a triangle, the installation seats a total of sixty women from Queen Nefertiti to activist Shirley Colleen Smith. With this artwork, the artist sheds light on underexposed stories from world history to create a fuller, more honest, historical perspective. Kaersenhout is considered one of today’s most prominent artists.
