Lina Bo Bardi Fellows take part in event at Stroom Den Haag

Stroom Den Haag and artist Wendelien van Oldenborgh have organised a Lina Bo Bardi Fan Day to coincide with the last weekend of the exhibition 'Another Reality. After Lina Bo Bardi'; the perfect opportunity for fans to share personal stories and knowledge about Lina Bo Bardi, the event asks 'what does Lina Bo Bardi mean to you personally, or to you as an artist, architect, designer or researcher?'

Wendelien, who initiated the first Lina Bo Bardi Fan Day in the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven in 2010, will welcome visitors as the programme kicks off. What follows is an ongoing programme with fan statements by a.o. Céline Condorelli, Marcelo Rezende, Mike Cooter and Mark Pimlott, as well as informal presentations and films about the life and work of Lina Bo Bardi.

Lina Bo Bardi Fellows Laura Smith (2014) and Finn Beames (2015) will take part in the event. Laura will present the model of the Solar do Unhao staircase she produced in response to her visit to Salvador, whilst Finn will present a performance he has developed in collaboration with architect Paloma Gormley at Practice as a result of his research trip in Brazil.
