Museum Belvedere

Extended because of public demand...

Until April 7

Cruel and Unusual has been a success both here and internationally! Because of the great demand, the show will run for a week longer than originally planned. Saturday, 7 April, will be the last opportunity to see the exhibition in Groningen. It's successful reception is reflected not only in the visitor totals, but also in the attention it has received in the media, both in The Netherlands and abroad - online, in daily papers and monthly magazines and on radio. Here are just a handful of the reactions:

Lens Culture

The Cruel and Unusual exhibition that opens at the Noorderlicht Gallery in Groningen tomorrow is a rare breed.
