Northbound Exhibition

The Museum Kunst der Westküste, located in Alkersum on the North Sea island of Föhr/Germany, is presenting the Northbound. Connected by the Sea exhibition at the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco from March 19 to June 19, 2022.

It brings together 24 paintings and photographs: historical and contemporary works which illustrate the role of the North Sea and the importance of preserving its coastal and marine areas.

The Northbound exhibition will be complemented by a scientific symposium entitled ‘The North Sea, a Sea of Solutions’, on May 11, 2022.

‘Fresh day in June in Skagen’ 1908 by Aurits Tuxen

All the works presented have a common denominator: the sea. For centuries artists have challenged themselves to ‘capture’ this subject which stands never still. In constant motion, the sea changes continually in its overall appearance, its colours, its temperament. At times the sea captivates by its calm, smooth, reflective surface. At times it is immersed in green, blue or sometimes grey, interspersed with white crests formed by the waves.

The Oceanographic Museum is open every day from 10:00 to 18:00 (last entrance at 17:30).
