Eduardo Chillida in the Rijksmuseum Gardens

Sculptures by Eduardo Chillida in the Rijksmuseum Gardens
From 22 June until 23 September

The sixth annual summer’s exhibition in the Rijksmuseum Gardens will feature nine giant sculptures by Spanish artist Eduardo Chillida (1924-2002). Chillida is considered to be one of the most important post-war innovators in sculpture. He became famous chiefly for his huge sculptures in steel.

For the first time, nine of Chillida’s monumental outdoor sculptures will be exhibited together in the Netherlands. The works are on loan from the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA), the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, the Eduardo Chillida-Pilar Belzunce Foundation in Hernani, Ordovas in London and a private collection.

The opening of the exhibition will take place on June 22. The exhibition will run until September 23.
