In 2019, Museum aan het Vrijthof will be transformed into a photography only museum. Jan Stel Photography is proud to have been asked by the managing board to be the first to exhibit! The festive opening of the exhibition "Manmade / no Human" starts on 22 June 2019. We will set up 2 floors and a total of 12 rooms with photography. And also we're going to use recorded sounds from the photographed locations for an audiovisual experience.
MUSEUM AAN HET VRIJTHOF: Museum aan het Vrijthof is a young museum located at the heart of the city in one of the oldest buildings in Maastricht; the former retreat of Charles V. This private museum re-opened after major renovations in 2012. Museum aan het Vrijthof organizes a temporary exhibition three to four times each year.
Visitors of the museum can also enjoy an hour filled with culture amongst the shops, café’s and restaurants Maastricht has to offer. And we have a freely accessible museum café, located at the covered courtyard.
PREVIEW! GROUND-PLAN AND SOME ROOMS OF THE MUSEUM We are busy setting up both levels and all rooms, it is shuffling and puzzling with all the photographs we have. Each room is having a unique ambiance, from romantic classic to stylish modern. Only the best photographed locations will be shown. And to make the match with Museum aan het Vrijthof perfect, we will use the same classic looking and technically abstract photo’s. From small picturesque to extreme large formats. We are looking forwards to welcome you at the opening ...
