Heartland is an interdisciplinary project which reflects on the visual culture, art and music of the heart of the United States. The Heartland project consists of a group exhibition in the Van Abbemuseum together with a musical programme in the Muziekcentrum. It will also include ancillary events, such as debates, lectures, a photo exhibition, publications, and an artists in residence programme. The Heartland project is an ambitious collaboration between the Van Abbemuseum and the Muziekcentrum Frits Philips in Eindhoven, and with the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago as an American partner. Heartland will take place in Eindhoven from 3 October, 2008 until 25 January, 2009. The exhibition will be reconceived for a presentation at the Smart Museum of Art in 2009.
