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. Given the current uncertainty about the COVID-19 developments, we have decided not to organise an Amsterdam Art Weekend in April of this year. Instead we focus on smaller scale events and tailer-made programmes: in June together with the Open Studios of the Rijksakademie and De Ateliers, and in September coinciding with the opening of the gallery season.

And a little further ahead, we look forward to the ten-year anniversary edition of Amsterdam Art in 2022, in which the Weekend will be extended to an Amsterdam Art Week.

About Amsterdam Art Gallery Weekend

Due to the global pandemic, Amsterdam Art Weekend 2020 unfortunately could not proceed. Therefore, last fall the very first Amsterdam Art Gallery Weekend was launched. Amsterdam’s finest art galleries and the artists they represent, were put in the spotlight through a high quality curated programme which included exhibitions, editions and an online program of talks, tours and performances. The Gallery Weekend was hosted by galleries in Amsterdam and several Amsterdam institutions, including regular partners such as Oude Kerk, Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten and Stedelijk Museum.
