On the occasion of Armando's 85th birthday, MOA organizes the exhibition Armando 85. The exhibition offers a retrospective of more than sixty years of making art and displays icons from the oeuvre of Armando.
From the early fifties Armando has created an impressive collection. In various forms, the artist always returns to the central theme in his work: the tragedy of the man in an indifferent landscape. The work is rooted in Armando's childhood experiences in Amersfoort during World War II. Armando transcends the personal and biographical order to achieve a mythology with a universal eloquence.
