The Rhythm of the Night
Frans Hals Museum, Haarlem
11 November 2022 – 14 January 2023
Rineke Dijkstra's work will be included in The Rhythm of the Night, an exhibition of video art. An ode to the night, the exhibition celebrates the dizzying experience of dance events, the possibility of nightclubs to act as havens for freedom and self-expression, and the artistic potential of the video medium itself. The show features Dijkstra's The Krazy House, 2009, which portrays young clubbers on a dancefloor in Liverpool, England. ‘The result is a beguiling, fragile and yet familiar reflection of the social and cultural codes with which young people shape their identity’, curator Manique Hendricks explains.

Beautés (group show)
FRAC Auvergne, Clermont-Ferrand
24 June – 5 November 2023
Works by Rineke Dijkstra and Albert Oehlen are included in the exhibition Beautés at FRAC Auvergne. Inspired by Marcel Proust’s declaration that ‘true beauty is so particular, so new, that we do not recognise it for beauty’, the exhibition brings together gems from the museum’s collection acquired between 1985 and 2023, and invites viewers to consider beauty as a complex and often contradictory experience which spans from excitement and wonder to melancholy and lust.
I See You (solo show)
Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris
7 June – 1 October 2023
The MEP, Paris, will host I See You, a major exhibition of the photographic and video works of the internationally renowned Dutch artist Rineke Dijkstra. Taking over one complete floor, Dijkstra will install four of her most important video installations, all presented for the first time in a Parisian institution.
The video works selected for the exhibition deal exclusively with the ways in which younger people look at and present themselves as portrait subjects in the process of establishing their identities, whether as school students, performers, or consumers of visual culture. In many ways, by holding up the camera to face her subjects, Dijkstra challenges us to rethink the ways in which we look at and attach meaning to images of others and thereby how we understand our own roles in contemporary society.

Rineke Dijkstra’s Odessa, Ukraine, August 7, 1993, 1993 will be on view in the exhibition yours truly, at the Museum Morsbroich.

Night Watching (installation)
Timken Museum of Art, San Diego
1 March – 4 June 2023
Rineke Dijkstra’s monumental, three-channel video installation Night Watching is now on view at the Timken Museum of Art, San Diego. First debuted in 2019 following a commission by the Rijksmuseum, Night Watching features 14 diverse audiences contemplating Rembrandt van Rijn’s most iconic work, The Night Watch, 1642). On six consecutive evenings, Dijkstra filmed groups standing or sitting directly in front of the painting, recording their conversations, which range from close visual descriptions to speculations about the circumstances surrounding the creation of this masterpiece. The Timken's presentation of Night Watching represents the first time that this complex project has been seen on the West Coast and inaugurates a new curatorial series at the Timken entitled Reconsidering Rembrandt.
