About Amsterdam Art Weekend

During Amsterdam Art Weekend, the city’s finest contemporary art institutions collectively open their doors to showcase the latest developments in contemporary art. The four-day event connects galleries, project spaces, museums, art institutions and residency programs with the local community as well as art professionals and collectors from all over the world. Art enthusiasts are invited to explore the contemporary art field through the Public Program, whilst the Professionals & Collectors Program offers a more in-depth experience of the contemporary art scene. 

The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten has been a major partner since the founding of Amsterdam Art. Due to the spread of COVID-19, they have decided to extend the current residency period to May 2021 and to move the annual Open Studios to April 2021. During the Open Studios, dozens of resident artists will present their work to the general public for the first time. Because this is a significant event for the contemporary art scene, it makes sense to organise Amsterdam Art Weekend simultaneously from 15-18 April. Once again in April, the connecting role of Amsterdam Art Weekend between the city’s numerous galleries, museums, project spaces and artists will be used to its fullest potential.

About Amsterdam Art Gallery Weekend

Amsterdam Art is pleased to announce the launch of the very first Amsterdam Art Gallery Weekend from 25-29 November 2020, a weekend of contemporary art with Amsterdam galleries as its main focus. The smaller-scale Amsterdam Art Gallery Weekend aims to stimulate the Dutch art market. The Gallery Weekend is hosted by galleries in Amsterdam and therefore, the number of visitors can be managed more easily and safety measures can be implemented. Several Amsterdam institutions, including regular partners such as Oude Kerk, Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten and Stedelijk Museum are also part of the programme.
