André Volten (1925 - 2002) was at the forefront of abstract sculpture in the Netherlands. Numerous sculptures, almost always in steel, are set up everywhere in the country at prominent locations such as the Stopera and the IJ-riverside in Amsterdam and the Jaarbeursplein in Utrecht. His work is often fully integrated into the surroundings. The relationship between the artwork, the environment and the spectator was always very important to Volten for his creation process. Museum Beelden aan Zee honors Volten, the Dutch master of geometric abstraction in three dimensions, with a retrospective exhibition. The exhibition will include a richly illustrated catalog with contributions by Jan Teeuwisse, Trude Hooykaas and Emma van Proosdij.
