Iris Bakker has exhibited at a variety of locations, including the art museum Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo (NL), Ilulissat Kunstmuseum (GL), the illustration festival '36 mountains' in Zagreb (CR) and several places in Denmark. At ARoS Art Museum in Aarhus, Denmark, Iris was ‘artist in residence’ in 2017 and again in 2019 and used the opportunity to explore different aspects of art.
The exhibitions have had the form of conversation, live drawing, group exhibition and interactive exploration, and the experience has been central to them all.

As part of the exhibition "Het Leven Getekend" I have started drawing live on the museum. I will continue the 21st and 22nd of December. I am drawing portraits of the museum visitors on the glass windows of the museum.
We investigated how the guests feel in and about art museums, and made a design proces about this. Other than that we talked to the guests, drew portraits, held workshops etc.
I created an experimental space, where visitors could come in and join. I facilitated meetings - either between me and the guests or among guests. They met through art, but it was about their interaction, more than the result on the paper.
