“Our new installation ‘Pretty Vacant’ in Utrecht’s Centraal Museum will be open for public from Sunday May 19th until January 2014. The blue window is based on the ‘left over spaces’ of Rietveld Landscape’s earlier installation Vacant NL. This was presented in the Dutch pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2010.
With the acquisition of the installation, the Centraal Museum realizes its ambition, with support of the Mondriaan Fund, to add Vacant NL to the collection.”
