Introduction, Stadsgalerij Heerlen

What things to do in Heerlen. Art gallery museum in Heerlen - find museum and modern art galleries here in the Netherlands. The Stadsgalerij Heerlen is the municipal museum for modern and contemporary art. Since 2003, the museum has been housed in the Glaspaleis, a visionary glass-fronted edifice dating back to the 1930s and acclaimed as one of the thirteen most important architectural monuments in the Netherlands. In addition to accommodating the museum, this ‘glass palace’, which promotes itself as a ‘window on culture’, is also home to the Municipal Library, the Heerlen Music School, the Filmhuis (a cinema for contemporary film) and the architectural centre, Vitruvianum.

Details, Stadsgalerij Heerlen

Since the 1950s, the City of Heerlen has been building up a collection of modern Dutch painting. The first additions to the collection included works by CoBrA artists. Early on, paintings by Amsterdam-based Limburg artists were acquired, including Ger Lataster, Lei Molin and Jef Diederen. The Stadsgalerij was established in 1986 and since then acquisition has focussed on current and individual developments in Dutch painting. The collection has been enlarged with works by Ben Akkerman, Marlene Dumas, Rob van Koningsbruggen, Han Schuil, JCJ Vanderheyden, Toon Verhoef and many others. The museum also aims to acquire the works of talented young artists. Natasja Kensmil, Carla Klein, Charlotte Schleiffert, Koen Vermeule and Robert Zandvliet are just some examples. The presence of top-quality works by Limburg artists emphasises the collection’s couleur locale. In the future, the Stadsgalerij will continue to zero in on the confrontation with contemporary ideas in painting and this will be reflected in its acquisition policy. In this way - not least because of its eccentric position in relation to other Dutch art museums - the Stadsgalerij hopes to fulfil a defining role within the Euregion.
