The Expatriate Archive Centre (EAC) invites you to the exhibition ‘Saudade: An Intersection of Archives and Art’ from 11 to 15 April in the Twelve Twelve Gallery in The Hague.
Saudade is a Portuguese word evoking nostalgia for someone or something absent and beloved. The Saudade project celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Expatriate Archive Centre as an independent foundation. Its mission to preserve the life stories of expats, who leave behind home, family, and everything they know.
Ten artists from around the world have come together to gather inspiration from the EAC’s collection and create art pieces that will fit in an antique suitcase donated by one of the founders of the EAC. Scottish artist Natalie McIlroy is the curator of the project.
The exhibition will run from 11 to 15 April at Twelve Twelve Gallery (Prinsestraat 53) in The Hague. There is no charge to enter the gallery.
