The Hague Sculpture Festival Begins

The Hague Sculpture Festival, an open air annual exhibition begins on the 6th June until the 31st August 2014. This year visitors will once again flock to the beautiful Lange Voorhout to view these incredible works of art.

Previous exhibitions were entitled The Hague under the Sky and Russia XXI. This year’s sculpture event is called The Big Curve – a solo exhibition by contemporary French sculptor Henri Laurens – one of the most influential modernist sculptors – and will be held at Beelden aan Zee in The Hague, Netherlands. The exhibition will comprise over fifty of Laurens’ works – from early cubist-style pieces to his later works of curvy nudes.

Laurens was born in Paris in 1885 at a time when the city was the capital for modern art. Almost all modern art developments took place in Paris and it became a hub for artists and creatives the world over.

In conjunction to the Henri Laurens exhibition, the works of 25 other contemporary French sculptors will be on display at Lange Voorhout. Names include: Xavier Veilhan, Jean-Michel Othoniel, Vincent Ganivet, Jeanne Pierre Raynaud, Annette Messager, Charles Boltanski and Baptiste Debombourg.
