The Plant Collection is a artist research on the vanished – and forgotten – plant life in the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. From 1945 to 1983, plants stood next to the works of Mark Rothko, Niki de Saint Phalle, Christo and many others. more
During the 38 years that plants were part of the museum’s policy, you could certainly speak of a ‘collection’. The plant collection included 39 different species. After every exhibition, the plants would be taken away and moved to a new spot. Plants were donated to the museum and a specific person was employed to take care of the collection.
