Galerie Ra: 1976-2011
Since Galerie Ra was opened by Paul Derrez in the centre of Amsterdam in 1976, its policy has focused primarily on promoting jewellery as an art form.
Originality, quality and continuity are the starting-points for the galleryâ€™s exhibition programme in which work from around 50 international artists is represented. Eight exhibitions a year are organised, chiefly solo displays, or sometimes a theme or group show for which a specific presentation is conceived.
Every five years, Galerie Ra organises a special exhibition with an accompanying catalogue, i.e.:
1986 â€“ 10 Years Galerie Ra
1991 â€“ The Feestdis/ The Banqueting Table
1996 â€“ Passion + Profession
2001 â€“ Masquerade (travelling)
2006 â€“ Radiant, 30 years Ra (travelling)
Other noteworthy exhibitions were â€˜Lepels/Spoonsâ€™ (travelling) in 2002 and â€˜Souvenir Museum Van Loonâ€™ in 2004.
Galerie Ra also participates in Collect, The international art fair for contemporary objects, since 2005 at the V & A and in 2009 at the new Saatchi Galleries, London.
