Outdoor Exhibition in the Dutch Province of Drenthe

8 June through 14 July

On June 8, in the Dutch province of Drenthe, the new King Willem-Alexander Canal will be opened. It is the first infrastructural construction that is named after the newly crowned king of The Netherlands. On this occasion, Noorderlicht presents ExtraOrdinary, an exhibition project that was developed by request of the Province of Drenthe.

With the works of 25 photographers from home and abroad, the exhibition places the region’s past, present and future into global context. The exhibition is installed in the public space by the new canal and in old barges that were instrumental in the region’s past peat industry. The ships are scattered on the shore along the new canal, and mark the new route. They are to be visited both by land and from the water.
