Hello

My name is Jeroen Lavèn, a digital communications native who loves all things new media, contemporary art, and exhibition design

About

As an Art Historian with a focus on contemporary art, my interest always leaned towards communicating artworks and exhibitions in a visual language; say via social media or exhibition design. My work experience at several art institutions in Rotterdam strengthened my ability to translate contemporary art and exhibitions in a modern day visual language that fits the web and social media.


My company, Visuology, is the culmination of my interests and gained experience.


Portfolio

Exhibition Design

Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art

Designed, together with the curator and director of Witte de With, a custom-made wallpaper, installed sparsely throughout the gallery space. Including images that range from seventeenth-century paintings to contemporary films, it intends to make visually palpable something along the lines of an epistolary visual culture.

Presentation Design

Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art

Desgined the context layer of the archival presentation On Contemporary Arab Representations at Witte de With. This context layer includes press clippings from around the world, published during the project in 2002 and 2003.
