Opening Margaret van Eyck

We are happy to invite you to the opening of Margaret van Eyck—Multiform Institute for Fine Art, Design and Reflection on Tuesday 11 July. Margaret van Eyck is an ongoing intervention by participants of the Van Eyck, investigating the ways that fiction and reality inform each other. Join us for a programme of performances, a tour of the academy and its Labs, and drinks.

Margaret is an intervention.
Margaret is an experiment.
Margaret is an investigation.
Margaret is an idea.
Margaret is a vessel.
Margaret is a mirror.
Margaret is a question.
Margaret is a demand.
Margaret is a gesture.
Margaret is a tool.
Margaret is a parallel world.
