Special Editions
A new initiative by Amsterdam Art is the release of the Special Editions. Each participating gallery presents an extraordinary and affordable limited edition artwork with prices ranging between €300-€500 each. The artworks are on show in every gallery and together they form an exhibition throughout the city. Artists were inspired by the overarching theme: Infra-Ordinary, which describes the phenomenon when the banality of everyday life suddenly gets a special meaning.

Prominent partner venues such as Stedelijk Museum, Oude Kerk, de Ateliers and Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten will also present a special program. Stedelijk Museum will showcase their exhibition Ulay Was Here, which includes screenings and performances. Oude Kerk will be hosting their program The World After: Conversation Pieces in which artists are invited to share their outlook on the world after the coronavirus pandemic. The 150-year anniversary of the Rijksakademie will be celebrated by the release of their Artist Edition Box, a Rijksakademie exhibition in a box. Additionally, the academy launches an exhibition on their 150-year long history.

Amsterdam Art Gallery Weekend presents a unique opportunity to explore Amsterdam - the creative contemporary art hub for established and up-and- coming artists. The weekend highlights exceptional and cutting edge art for both collectors and the interested public. Current and new generations of art lovers will be inspired to discover the world of art.
