combinaryArtworks each tell a story and with more than 2700 artworks in the collection, the Van Abbemuseum is a house full of stories. By combining different pieces of art in our exhibitions we create our own and new stories. The exhibitions are arranged around a specific theme or composed by the visual aspects of the art works.

Combinary gives you the chance tell your own story.
Can you tell an original story? Combine three pieces of art from our collection and find out!
