Welcome to Amsterdam Art Week 2021
This is a very special edition. We have moved the successful annual Amsterdam Art Weekend from November to June and extended it to a full Amsterdam Art Week. For ten days, the city will be buzzing with exhibitions, performances, screenings, debates, gallery tours and open studios.
Despite the limitations due to the pandemic, Amsterdam Art has committed to a physical programme. We believe it is of great importance to experience art visually and sensorially. We also believe that the art scene thrives on personal encounters and exchanges between art lovers. Needless to say, we have taken measures to ensure everyone’s health and safety, in accordance with national regulations.
This exceptional edition of Amsterdam Art Week, curated together with over fifty participating galleries, museums, artist residencies, project spaces and individual artists, offers you the chance to discover the city’s vibrant contemporary art scene. Inspired by the Situationists’ concept of ‘dérive’, we invite you to wander through Amsterdam and explore how art contributes to the city.
Please note that several events have very limited capacity. Unfortunately, we cannot yet gather in large numbers to enjoy festive openings and events. Therefore, we are asking you to spread out your visits over the ten days of the Art Week. We also kindly ask you to register in advance and to adhere to the safety guidelines at all times.
Enjoy Amsterdam Art Week!
