It is the first time that Museum Beelden aan Zee is making an exhibition about the abstract images in its own collection. In abstract art, the recognizability is removed, leaving more attention for form, color and material. Yet there is a story behind every image. In Abstract+Beeld visitors can discover these stories through images by artists as diverse as David Vandekop, William Turnbull, Anthony Caro, Shinkichi Tajiri, Cornelius Rogge, André Volten, Erik van Spronsen, and Lon Pennock.

Visitors to the exhibition can look forward to high-quality images. Such as a spectacular newly acquired work by David Vandekop in wood, the five-metre-long wall sculpture 'LIKE' by Roy Villevoye and the monumental plaster sculpture 'Swirling' by Piet Killaars. One of the highlights is an eight-meter-long sculpture depicting a city by the Chinese contemporary artist Nabuqi. There is also room for young talent such as Nynke Koster. The rubber work 'Elements of time' was acquired by the museum in 2020.

Collection Policy
In the past decade, the non-figurative sculpture in particular has grown considerably within the collection of the Beelden aan Zee museum. The exhibition Abstract+Beeld provides an overview and illustrates an important development in the museum's collection policy. Since the establishment of Beelden aan Zee in 1994, the museum has focused on acquiring and displaying figurative sculpture. Specifically, the representation of the human figure was central to the collector couple Scholten. Nevertheless, attention was gradually paid to abstract sculpture through targeted purchases. For example, work by Anthony Caro, Shinkichi Tajiri and Berend Bodenkamp was purchased. In recent years, the collection has been enriched at a rapid pace, particularly through donations from private individuals.
