Chris Berens – Strange Days – 2015

Parallel to the Jeroen Bosch exhibition in the Noordbrabants Museum, the fantasy world of Chris Berens is shown in the Museum Jan Cunen in Oss with an extensive exhibition titled ‘Chris Berens, a modern Hieronymus Bosch’.

The opening of this show, with more than fifty paintings and drawings by Berens, takes place on Saturday, February 20, from 12 pm until 5 pm.

During the opening, the artist will be interviewed live by Antoinnette Scheulderman, journalist and side kick in the popular tv show ‘De Wereld Draait Door’. Scheulderman is a fan of his work.

Chris Berens was born in Oss. His unbridled imagination refers directly to the works of the medieval master Hieronymus Bosch. It is not without reason that American singer Blondie, for whom he designed the cover of her album ‘Panic of Girls’, describes him as the new Bosch. Like Bosch, Berens shows heaven and hell, angels and demons.

In the monumental nineteenth-century town house of the Museum Jan Cunen two other exhibitions can be visited as well: ‘We Make Carpets’ in dialogue with carpet designers of Bergoss, as well as ‘Masters of the Haagse School’ with a number of masterpieces from the museum collection. And there is music: the group Brabant Talent will perform and the young Bosschenaar and eclectic producer Jameszoo provides a special Hieronymus Bosch set.

‘Chris Berens, a modern Hieronymus Bosch’ can be visited until June 26.
