(Source: Kunstvlaai website)

Set up in 1997,  the Kunstvlaai is the largest exhibition of experimental and non-commercial art in the Netherlands.

Kunstvlaai: Festival of Independents is a hosting platform for over 70 local and international artist-led initiatives, art schools and nomadic organizations of the contemporary visual arts.

The 2012 edition, 'INexactly THIS' is a dynamic staging of exhibitions, live arts, film screenings, archival presentations, lectures and workshops. The festival encourages qualities of speculation, collaboration and generous openness found within diverse models for self-organization, autonomous practice and the role of education in the cultural field.

Festival Location
 
Sint Nicolaas Lyceum (former)
 
The new venue for Kunstvlaai 2012 edition, INexactly THIS, is the Sint Nicolaas Lyceum in Amsterdam Zuid. It is located away from the historical centre, surrounded by the lush Beatrix park and giant corporate buildings of the WTC business district. The Sint Nicolaas complex originally included the school buildings  as well as a former convent and was built in the 1950s by the architects Lau Peters, Ted Peters and Ben Spängberg. Initially divided into separate Boys and Girls schools, these buildings were later combined, bringing about major architectural modifications.
