Get to know the work from On Earth – Imaging, Technology and the Natural World straight from the artists themselves. Filmed at home or in their studio’s, they explain their works featured in the exhibition and tell us about the techniques or processes they’ve used. You can find the videos on our IGTV at @foam_amsterdam.

Now spring has started and we are all at home waiting, working or studying. It takes adjustments and creativity to make it through the day. Inspired by @tussenkunstenquarantaine and past Foam workshops, each week we'll challenge you to reinterpret an artwork from the collection or exhibitions in your own way.

Expected at Foam: Vivian Maier – Works in Color

This spring we’re presenting the colorful works of Vivian Maier in the new exhibition Works in Color. The exhibition shows street scenes in Chicago, where Maier lived for much of her live. Her work in color seems altogether playful and tongue in cheek. In the run-up to the reopening of Foam, Vivian Maier's work will be on show in various ways through an online program.
