The greats of the art world
The Stedelijk Museum's extensive collection is comparable in style to the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Art Institute of Chicago. Design has been given a permanent place in the museum for the first time, with big names such as Joseph Hoffmann, Gerrit Rietveld and Tapio Wirkkala. Contemporary artists are also strongly represented with masterpieces by, among others, Maarten Baas, Barbara Bloom, Rineke Dijkstra, Marlene Dumas, Sheila Hicks, Jeff Koons, Wolfgang Tillmans, Edward Kienholz, Willem de Kooning and Andy Warhol. Since the renovation and extension of the building, the Stedelijk has been able to show more of its famous collection than ever, thanks to the many new museum rooms.
Innovative exhibition rooms
In addition to the large halls for exhibitions , the appearance of the museum itself has also changed considerably during the renovation: the building no longer looks away from the Museumplein , but rather looks out on it. The impressive foyer and restaurant look inviting and there is a futuristic-looking new wing , designed by Benthem Crouwel Architects , who Amsterdammers also call the 'bathtub'.
The Stedelijk Museum - Museum of Modern Art is free for young people up to and including 18 years old.
Major movements in art, design and architecture
The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam is the must-see museum of modern art and contemporary art design.
The collection is one of the most important collections of modern art and contemporary art and design in the world. The most meaningful movements in both art and design are represented with (inter)national artists and designers who are helping to shape the changes of yesterday, today and tomorrow.
With well-know works together with lesser-known highlights by, amongst others, Vincent Van Gogh, Marc Chagall, Piet Mondriaan, Yayoi Kusama, Andy Warhol, Marlene Dumas, Henri Matisse, Jackson Pollock, Nicolaas Warb, Gerrit Rietveld, El Anatsui, Rineke Dijkstra, Danielle Dean, Sarah Zapata, Simnikiwe Buhlungu and Charley Toorop.
The collection, organized thematically and in a loose chronology, emphasizes that art and design develop alongside social movements and bear multiple histories that encompass diverse perspectives.
