Martie Genger is well known as a visual artist, poet, and writer. Martie has lived in Curaçao since 1969, with an interruption of eleven years in Costa Rica, where she has continued with her work as a visual artist as well. In 2021 Martie was one of the artists to participate in the jubilee exhibition of Gallery Alma Blou, ‘Art feeds the Soul’. This year (2022) The Curaçao Museum is bringing an ode to Martie Genger.
The Curaçao Museum introduces Martie Genger as a “multi-talented, sharp-witted, beautiful-strong-but-also-not-afraid-to-show-you-her-vulnerability’ lady who has allowed us to make her take over our Museum. We say to make her because next to all of the above-mentioned, Martie Genger is also modest. A very unique and complex combination, which is also reflected in her art.”
Everything Martie creates has reason, motive, or emotion. Her complete oeuvre is richly layered and exudes the wisdom of deeper insight. Martie pours her heart and soul into each and every one of her works of art.The Museum will be filled entirely, from top to bottom, with almost all of Martie’s pieces. The artworks will be displayed in a unique manner, in between the permanent collection.
The exhibition is curated by board member Mariëtte Arkenbout-van Soesbergen, and organized together with art handler Pedro Angela. Pedro Angela has years of experience working at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam and has vast experience in the international art scene.
