Chris Beekman, De Stijl Defector

Part of the Dutch De Stijl movement, which advocated pure abstraction and reductionism, painter Chris Beekman later rejected the group’s idealistic ethos and what he saw as its lack of concrete social engagement, turning to figurative work of a more political nature. The exhibition traces this break, as Beekman set out to create an art for the people.
