Outdoor exhibitions

One thing the city of Den Haag really excels at is outdoor exhibitions, particularly on the Lange Voorhout. This beautiful tree-lined avenue lends itself very well to exhibitions, fashion shows and other events.

I adore the elephant, above, which for me is the stand-out piece from this Summer’s exhibition: ‘The Rainbow Nation’. ¬†Nomkhubulwane, 2009, by Andries Botha. Made completely from recycled tyres, woven together, it is just beautiful and majestic.

Previously, my favourite sculptures on the Lange Voorhout were in a 2009 Exhibition (the name of which I have forgotten). These horses and riders, above, were really strikingly placed.
