Stedelijk Museum | ‘Ulay was here’
First posthumous retrospective of the work of Ulay
Contemporary art museum Stedelijk presents ULAY WAS HERE – MEET THE MASTER OF NO COMPROMISE , the first and largest retrospective so far of the work of performance artist Frank Uwe Laysiepen (Germany 1943–2020), known as Ulay.
Amsterdam was a city he loved for its freewheeling counterculture, openness, and “constructive” brand of anarchism. It is therefor a great honour Stedelijk Museum asked us to distribute guerrilla marketing across the city to reflect that anarchism feeling: large chalk graffiti, clings, fly posting and poster frames, spreading the message that once upon a time in Amsterdam UlayWasHere.nl.
Exhibition runs from 21 November 2020 till 18 April 2021
