For three days, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, in combination with the Rijksakademie’s open studio’s (RijksakademieOPEN), the second edition of the Amsterdam Art Weekend will take place. Workshops, galleries and art institutes will join together to present Amsterdam’s latest and best contemporary art. Our mission statement: Amsterdam is a hothouse of extraordinary talent.

What is it? Who is it for?

Amsterdam Art Weekend is an art festival with an international outlook, for culture aficionados and professionals. An essential aspect is talent development: the path that leads artists through the studios of the Rijksakademie, De Ateliers and the galleries of Amsterdam, on their way to the international art scene. Galleries display the work of alumni and residents of the participating artists’ studios. Art institutes present the work of artists affiliated to the city’s galleries. Galleries offer exhibitions and special events such as performances, artist talks, concerts, and small-scale art fairs. The International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) shows art films submitted by galleries, the Rijksakademie, and De Ateliers (as part of its Paradocs programme at Tuschinski).
