“The AkzoNobel Art Foundation is generally regarded as one of the most progressive corporate collections in Europe, in part because it’s always held diversity as an important tenet,” says Thierry Vanlancker, AkzoNobel CEO and Chair of the AkzoNobel Art Foundation. “Of almost 1,800 artworks, half have been created by women and many are by non-western artists. In this new exhibition, we’re proud to celebrate that diversity and the pioneering spirit we share in art, science and business.”
Rein Wolfs, the Director of the Stedelijk Museum of Amsterdam will be opening the All Eyes exhibition. Afterwards, Luyi, who is one of the finalists of the Prinses Christina Jazz Concours 2020, will give a live performance.

The Art Foundation has been celebrating its silver jubilee over the past year. In 2020, the AkzoNobel Art Foundation published an exclusive magazine – We Are The Collection – to share the collection’s greatest moments, special acquisitions and reflections by artists, curators and supporters.
All Eyes is now on show, free of charge, in the AkzoNobel Art Space from Monday to Friday, from 9am to 6pm, and on request. To learn more, visit artfoundation.akzonobel.com and follow @akzonobelartfoundation on Instagram.
