For the fourth year in a row, the art platform Museumtijdschrift awards the Tentoonstellingsprijs for the best exhibition of the past season. These are the 10 nominees!
Kirchner and Nolde: Expressionism. Colonialism
Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam
This exhibition looked not only at the work of Kirchner and Nolde, but also at the stories of the people portrayed. How did their paintings relate to people and objects from extra-European areas and colonialism?
Allart van Everdingen (1621-1675): The rugged landscape
municipal museum in Alkmaar
The Dutch artist Allart van Everdingen traveled to Norway in 1644 to paint the landscape. It turned out to be an outside eye, for his paintings were in great demand in his homeland. The first major retrospective of his work was shown in the Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar.
Natasja Kensmil: A poison tree
Kunsthal KAdE, Amersfoort
Natasja Kensmil connects the present and history, personal memories and collective memory. In her work, which is literally and figuratively layered, she shows opposites such as power and powerlessness, the earthly and the spiritual, and violence and sacrifice.
Artemisia. Woman and power
Rijksmuseum Twenthe, Enschede
Artemisia was one of the most important representatives of Italian painting from the seventeenth century. As a woman, she manifested herself in a man’s world without conforming. The exhibition revolved around Artemisia’s extraordinary life and work and is part of a recent ‘rediscovery’ of the artist in recent decades.

Don’t forget me. Portraits from Dürer to Sofonisba
The Rijksmuseum was devoted to portraits from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. How did people want to be immortalized and remembered at the time? This question was answered based on themes such as authority, beauty, family and love.
Rob Scholte – Rendering required
Museum de Fundatie, Zwolle
No fewer than four floors were filled with Rob Scholte’s paintings. The much talked about artist shamelessly uses existing images and appropriates them through alterations, additions and context shifts.

Art Museum The Hague

Lord we are! Women in design 1900 – today
Art Gallery, Rotterdam
More than a hundred female designers from 1900 to today are in the spotlight in the Kunsthallen! Each and every one of them has made an important contribution to the development of modern and contemporary design.
NB: This exhibition is still on display! Until October 30. Watch the Nu te Zien! broadcast about Here We Are!
Russian avant-garde | Revolution in art
This exhibition was only on view for a short time because the Hermitage closed its doors after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The story of the Russian avant-garde is told in detail, starting in Imperial Russia, through Malevich and Kandinsky, and ending in a breeding ground in an old porcelain factory.
This list of nominations for the Museum magazine’s Exhibition Award 2022 has been selected by a jury of experts. Which exhibition ultimately wins the prize is up to the visitor. You can vote for your favorite exhibition on the Museumtijdschift website until September 15!
