Pia Canales

Pia Canales is a professional observer of everyday things. Thanks to her hyper-curious attitude, she knows a little about a lot of things, and thanks to her background in art, she knows too much about a few more things. Her favourite things are peanut butter, inter-dimensional aliens, and amateurs.

“I walk in circles, I only walk in circles, I walk in circles for hours, I keep walking in circles, every circle is different.”

Thursday Night Detour

Every Thursday night a Detour Guide takes you on a free Detour through one of the exhibitions on display at Het Nieuwe Instituut. Discover design, digital culture and architecture from the perspective of your guide. Every Detour is different: you might end up working on a joint choreography or designing a space for insects.
