The first KunstRAI was held a year later. This covered almost 2,300 square metres and attracted some 15,000 visitors. The exhibition got off to a good start and had an international character from the outset. From 1989 onwards Van Krimpen introduced the concept of host countries and adopted a regional focus to give galleries from outside Holland's western conurbation the opportunity to exhibit.<br /><br />The KunstRAI played a pioneering role. Other than the exhibition in Basel, which was held for the 41st time in 2010, and the exhibitions in Cologne and Brussels, which were founded in 1975 and 1981 respectively, Europe had few art exhibitions. Art exhibitions had been held occasionally in the Netherlands, but there was no annual event. At that time the number of galleries in the Netherlands was still limited – in the early 1980s there were no more than 60 galleries for contemporary art.<br /><br />When Wim van Krimpen left the KunstRAI to join the Kunsthal in Rotterdam in 1989, he was succeeded by gallery owner Jacob Witzenhausen. After one exhibition under his charge, he was in turn succeeded by Erik Hermida. In 1992 Amsterdam RAI acquired the exhibition from the foundation. Hermida was given the job of turning the KunstRAI into an exhibition that would attract a wide public and have a strong national focus. The new formula proved popular and visitor numbers rose steadily, almost without interruption. The 2000 edition of KunstRAI attracted the all-time record of 28,000 visitors.<br /><br />However, there was dissatisfaction about the direction the exhibition was taking, especially among the more innovative galleries with an international reputation. In 1994 they set up their own event known as Art Amsterdam in the Beurs van Berlage (the former stock exchange building). Later the event moved to the Westergasfabriek. In 1996 Art Amsterdam merged with the KunstRAI, but this did not silence the critics and the number of complaints about the absence of a clear exhibition profile actually swelled. In 2002 Erik Hermida made way for Anneke Oele.<br /><br />Oele, who had been curator of the Museum of Modern Art in Arnhem and had previously been a gallery owner, immediately put in place a new, high quality concept. She halved the exhibition space and introduced stringent selection criteria. This ‘small is beautiful’ approach achieved a drastic improvement in the quality of the exhibits. Visitors appreciated this: their numbers rose as did their approval rating. To emphasise the break with the past and underscore the exhibition’s international ambitions, the name was changed to Art Amsterdam in 2006.<br /><br />The selection criteria for Art Amsterdam were tightened up still further in 2007. Galleries displaying jewellery, glass, ceramics and ethnographica were excluded from participation. At the same time, there was a rise in both the number of foreign exhibitors and the sales figures. In 2007 galleries from the United States, Korea, Denmark, Germany, France, Great Britain, Belgium and Poland took part. Sales totalled almost 5.3 million euro.<br /><br />In 2009 Art Amsterdam celebrated its silver jubilee. To mark the 25th anniversary all 135 participating galleries staged a solo stand. The exhibition was opened by Her Majesty Queen Beatrix  and the media coverage was overwhelming. Almost 24,000 art lovers visited the exhibition, which put the crown on the work of Anneke Oele. Shortly before the exhibition she announced that she would be standing down as director. She has now been succeeded by Edo Dijksterhuis, former head of the art section of the financial daily Het Financieele Dagblad.</p> Wed, 16 Jan 2013 03:40:39 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ams/Venues/list http://www.artslant.com/ams/Venues/list Art Space of the De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB), Westeinde 1 , 1017 ZN Amsterdam , Netherlands <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Regelmatig organiseert de Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) exposities.

Internationale prijzen vielen de familie Borzo ten deel. De handel in prenten en schilderijen vormde al snel een logische aanvulling op die activiteiten.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">20e eeuw en verder<br />In 1924 kocht Jan van Rosmalen sr. het pand en de firma, zette de zaak voort en loodste haar door crisis- en oorlogsjaren. Na de bevrijding trad de volgende generatie aan: Jan van Rosmalen jr., later met twee jongere broers, continueerde de zaak en breidde haar verder uit tot toonaangevende kunsthandel in Nederland in de volgende decennia.<br />Toen Paul van Rosmalen in 1987 Borzo overnam, wist hij dat zijn ambitie en liefhebberij verder in de kunstgeschiedenis zou liggen: het zwaartepunt van de collectie verplaatste zich van 19e naar 20e eeuw, van Haagse School naar Ecole de Paris, van Amsterdamse School naar De Stijl, Nul en Minimalisme, van impressionisme naar expressionisme, van het Nederlandse interessegebied naar kunst met een grotere internationale betekenis. Ook aan hedendaagse kunst zou meer aandacht besteed worden.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Van ‘s-Hertogenbosch naar Amsterdam<br />Met de grotere aandacht voor hedendaagse kunst tekende zich reeds een volgende stap af. Toen Cora de Vries in het voorjaar van 2004 te kennen gaf haar galerie "Collection d'Art" in Amsterdam te willen beëindigen, bood dat voor Borzo de gelegenheid in een - in potentie - prachtig en historisch pand de activiteiten van ‘s-Hertogenbosch naar Amsterdam te verplaatsen.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Borzo in Amsterdam<br />Onder leiding van architect Wiel Arets werd de verbouwing en restauratie ter hand genomen.<br />Kwaliteit, respect voor het verleden, voor Bodon, hand in hand met innovatieve oplossingen en aandacht voor detail, was de opdracht. Een huis dat niet alleen kunst huisvest, maar Kunst uitstraalt, waar Beeldende kunst en Architectuur elkaar ontmoeten, aanvullen en versterken. <br />In januari 2006 opende Borzo haar deuren in het nieuwe pand in Amsterdam.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Paul en Jory van Rosmalen nodigen u uit voor een bezoek.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> Fri, 14 Jun 2013 17:39:04 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ams/Venues/list http://www.artslant.com/ams/Venues/list Botanische Tuinen, Fort Hoofddijk, Budapestlaan 17, 3584 Utrecht, Netherlands Tue, 04 Aug 2009 19:36:48 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ams/Venues/list http://www.artslant.com/ams/Venues/list Chambres des Canaux: The Toleran Home, Contemporary art in Amsterdam canal houses, Canal Ring, Amsterdam, Netherlands <h3><span style="color: #525552; font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: small;">Contemporary art in Amsterdam canal houses</span></h3> <p><span style="color: #525552; font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: small;"><em>From 1 to 17 November 2013 </em></span></p> <p><span style="color: #525552; font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: small;"><strong>Twenty iconic Amsterdam canal-side properties exhibit the very best of the international art scene including Marlene Dumas, Atelier Van Lieshout, Guido van der Werve and Fiona Tan. </strong></span></p> <p><span style="color: #525552; font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: small;"><strong>Chambres des Canaux: The Tolerant Home </strong></span><br /><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: small;"> <span style="color: #525552;">The exhibition shines the spotlight on two related themes: the renowned tolerant nature of Amsterdam and the initial development of the</span> <a href="http://www.iamsterdam.com/en-GB/experience/about-amsterdam/areas/featured-areas/canal-ring">Canal Ring</a><span style="color: #525552;">, 400 years ago this year.

The artists who founded the CoBrA group during a major international conference held in Paris in 1948 came from these three European capitals. A curled snake became the symbol of the movement.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">It was in the Paris café Notre Dame that Asger Jorn (from Copenhagen), Joseph Noiret and Christian Dotremont (from Brussels) and Constant, Corneille and Karel Appel (from Amsterdam) signed the manifesto 'La Cause était entendue’ (The Case was Heard). This manifesto, drawn up by Dotremont, was a response to a statement by the French Surrealists entitled 'La Cause est entendue' (The Case is Heard). In it Dotremont makes it clear they are no longer in agreement with the French artists. The CoBrA painters wanted to break new ground, preferring to work spontaneously and with the emphasis more on fantastic imagery. In 1951 the CoBrA movement was officially disbanded, yet during its short existence CoBrA rejuvenated Dutch modern art.</p> <h2 style="text-align: justify;"><a name="WhoaretheCobraartists"></a>Who are the Cobra artists?</h2> <p style="text-align: justify;">The core of the CoBrA group consisted of the aforementioned painters who had signed the manifesto. They were soon joined by many other artists and in the end over forty artists were members of the CoBrA movement or indirectly involved. Not only painters, but also sculptors, poets, photographers and filmmakers felt drawn to CoBrA’s aims. Below is an alphabetical list of the group’s leading members:<br /> from <strong>Denemarken</strong>: Mogens Balle, Ejler Bille, Henry Heerup, Egill Jacobsen, Carl-Henning Pedersen.<br /> from <strong>België</strong>: Pierre Alechinsky, Hugo Claus, Reinhoud d'Haese.<br /> from <strong>Nederland</strong>: Eugène Brands, Lucebert, Jan Nieuwenhuys, Anton Rooskens, Theo Wolvecamp.<br /> Artists from countries other than the original three also took part, including: <br /> Jean Michel Atlan (Algeria), Jacques Doucet (France), William Gear and Stephen Gilbert (Scotland), Karl Otto Götz (Germany) and Shinkichi Tajiri (America).</p> Sat, 16 Mar 2013 09:48:50 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ams/Venues/list http://www.artslant.com/ams/Venues/list Cokkie Snoei Amsterdam, Hazenstraat 11, 1016 SM Amsterdam, Netherlands Wed, 04 Jan 2012 11:06:03 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ams/Venues/list http://www.artslant.com/ams/Venues/list Cokkie Snoei Rotterdam, Mauritsweg 55 , 3012 JX Rotterdam, Netherlands <p style="text-align: justify;">Rotterdam is not the first city that comes to mind when considering contemporary art. Cokkie Snoei is the only woman that comes to mind when discussing art and Rotterdam. <br /><br />Established in 1989 her gallery specialises in contemporary art and maintains a unique inventory of twentieth-century vintage photography.The gallery has built a reputation for it's strong association with both established and unknown artists. <br /><br />Cokkie Snoei's talent lies in mixing the experimental with the traditional, the glamourous with the conceptual, and style with attitude. Her exhibitions are humourous, erotic, surreal and sublime. <br /><br />Cokkie is cosmopolitan. You can find her in most of Europe's serious art fairs, including Basel, Cologne, Paris, Stockholm and Madrid. But you can also find her in New York. <br /><br />A frequent-flyer champion, our ebullient blonde matron of the arts is often in the company of one of the artists of her unique stable. They are sculptors, painters, designers, vidiots and photographers. Her fin de si&egrave;cle space is unmissable when visiting Rotterdam. <br /><br />A Cokkie Snoei fan</p> Mon, 10 Mar 2014 15:27:41 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ams/Venues/list http://www.artslant.com/ams/Venues/list
