Lumumba's Widow is one of 200 masterpieces in Marlene Dumas new exhibition.
The long awaited exhibition of Marlene Dumas has opened in Amsterdam. It is presenting around 200 of her works! We were deeply touched by ‘The Widow’, inspired by a picture of Patrice Lumumba’s widow attending the funeral of her murdered husband. Read about the making of this work here
Marlene Dumas is a staunch supporter of ZAM. In 2008, she gave ZAM permission to produce and sell 250 copies of her ‘Portrait of a young Nelson Mandela’. They were signed and numbered by the artists. Alle proceedings were donated to the ZAM platform.
ZAM’s special issue on Mandela is on sale at the shop of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
The exhibition 'The Image as Burden' is on until 4 January, 2015 at Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam
