tegenboschvanvreden is a contemporary art gallery, situated in the centre of Amsterdam. The gallery represents a group of eighteen international artists. In our view the gallery has no fixed formula; it is a distinctly dynamic platform which constantly requires the revision of conceptual points of departure. Since the gallery's inception we have been striving to realize specific projects and collaborations with tegenboschvanvreden. The gallery functions, ideally speaking, as a 'laboratory for new ideas'.
We opened our gallery in 2009. We have developed a program involving exhibitions with young, international artists who work in various media. Most of the artists have a research–based practice. In addition to the exhibition program there is a side program of lectures, screenings, performances and book presentations. tegenboschvanvreden takes part in national as well as international art fairs.
It presents a program of exhibitions by internationally oriented, mainly young artists. Next to that a parallel program of performances, artist talks, lectures, film screenings, book presentations and discussions generates a lively platform for contemporary art. The gallery aims at realizing interesting collaboration projects with different parties, either in the art world or from other fields.
