The Amsterdam gallery Art & Project (1968-2001) was the focal point for the development of contemporary art in the Netherlands and far beyond for more than 33 years. Founders Adriaan van Ravesteijn (1938-2015) and Geert van Beijeren (1933-2005) presented a groundbreaking program with work by both national and international artists. Marinus Boezem, Stanley Brouwn, Jan Dibbets, Charlotte Posenenske, Gilbert&George, Lawrence Weiner and Sol LeWitt are part of the impressive list of artists associated with the gallery. To draw attention to the exhibitions, Van Beijeren and Van Ravesteijn published a total of 156 so-called bulletins. The bulletins soon grew into an experimental medium. They were the carriers of the ideas of conceptual artists and sometimes functioned as conceptual works of art themselves. Art & Project: a history maps the history and influence of the gallery. The exhibitions, bulletins, the social network around the gallery and the influence in the (inter)national art world are approached from various angles. Partly due to extensive research and never-before-published (visual) material, this voluminous book is an indispensable overview of the history of contemporary art in the Netherlands.
