Farewell Exhibition of Marcel Pinas
(16 Mar 2016 - 20 Mar 2016)

Readytex Art Gallery and Visual Artist Marcel Pinas will present a very special exhibition in De Hal from March 16-20. The solo exhibition 'Eside tide tamaa' is especially special that it is the last time that Marcel Pinas exhibits at Readytex Art Gallery. The art career of Marcel Pinas is "on a roll" and the ambitious artist has been experiencing a growing international breakthrough for several years. Pinas will pursue his career from now on in collaboration with a gallery in the Netherlands which will represent him internationally.

For the art lover, 'Eside tide tamaa', apart from a great moment to enjoy a different and special exhibition, is also a crucial investment moment.

Indeed, the work is influenced by cultural symbolism, and the artist's visual language looks very colorful and impulsive. New Pinas also plays an important role. He creates a "negative space" that defines the visual power of the
Composition, as well as the urgency of the message, strengthened. In addition to paintings, Pinas presents a number of surprising installations on the exhibition which will undoubtedly trigger many discussions on themes, both locally and internationally. 'Eside tide tamaa' is an exhibition that, despite the traditional principles, universally radiates a strong and very contemporary appeal.
The curatorhip of the exhibition is partly in the hands of a team of Surinamese colleagues who have been interested in the curator's field for some time. These are Rinaldo Class, Kurt Nahar, Sunil Puljhun and Ken Doorson.
'Eside tide tamaa' can be seen in De Hal aan de Grote Combéweg 45, from Wednesday 16 to Sunday 20 March, 19:00 - 21:00 hrs.
