The EAC celebrated its 10th anniversary as an independent foundation in 2018 with an art exhibition. Ten artists from around the world each chose something from the collection as inspiration for an art piece. All of the resulting art fits together into an antique suitcase.
See our brochure if you are interested in bringing this exhibition to your location. The entire Saudade project is documented in a beautiful book, available for purchase.
If you missed the Saudade official opening at Twelve Twelve gallery, you can find it on tour in the following locations:
Boekhandel Dominicanen, 1-31 August 2018
Stadsarchief Rotterdam (Rotterdam City Archives), 27 September – 13 December 2018

The first Saudade exhibition was held April 11–15, 2018, at Twelve Twelve Gallery in The Hague. The exhibition opening was attended by seven of the project’s ten artists and more than 60 visitors.
The artists kept records of their artistic journeys in blog form on the official Saudade website, eacanniversary.com.
Full colour photographs of the art pieces, background on the archival stories that inspired them, essays and conversations with the artists.
