David Lynch: Someone is in my House

30-11-2018 - 28-04-2019

From 30 November 2018 till 28 April 2019, the Bonnefantenmuseum and Lumière Cinema have a collaborated program dedicated to the life and lifeworks of the American artist David Lynch.

David Lynch is undoubtedly a pivotal figure in the international film and TV world, his work as a visual artist is not nearly as well-known. This is strange, to say the least, as Lynch has always stressed that he sees himself primarily as a visual artist; a visual artist who came into contact with the medium of film during his studies at the art academy by chance. This encounter formed the basis for his career as film director. Alongside his work as a director, Lynch has always remained active as a visual artist and in recent decades has created a vast oeuvre of paintings, drawings, lithos, photos, lamp sculptures, music and installations.

The Bonnefantenmuseum is the first museum to present the exhibition of Lynch's visual art in the Netherlands, as well as the largest retrospective ever, comprising over 500 works by the artist. Up to now, his oeuvre has seldom been exhibited in museums.


Lumière Cinema collaborates with the Bonnefantenmuseum to organize a complete film retrospective devoted to the films and life of David Lynch with film screenings, documentaries and lectures about the filmmaker. This retrospective is organized to be an extension of the exhibition Someone is in my House and is officially part of the sideprogram.
