What exactly is the "heartland" of America? Usually mentioned in passing as that vague area between the East and West Coasts, Heartland is the name and focus of an extensive exhibition at the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, Netherlands.
The show highlights the variety of art coming out of the area of America that roughly follows the Mississippi River, from New Orleans to Minneapolis, including Omaha, Kansas City, Detroit and Chicago. Heartland aims to give a better picture of the often overlooked middle of the country by questioning traditional definitions of cultural centers by demonstrating that cultural creation can happen anywhere.
The show runs till January 25, when it will move (in a slightly smaller scale) to the Smart Museum of Art in Chicago.
