The anniversary edition comes after a difficult period of lockdowns and restrictive measures for the cultural sector. Ten years of Amsterdam Art Week (AAW) offers an excellent opportunity to celebrate, look back and especially look forward at the cultural sector. What are the major shifts in the Amsterdam visual arts field over the past decade? What is happening in the city and in other comparable cities in the Netherlands and abroad? What will the future look like?
Opening doors to Amsterdam’s art scene
Amsterdam Art Weekend is focused on placing up-and-coming artists firmly in the limelight, allowing art lovers to discover (and get their hands on) work by talented artists fresh on the scene.
The event typically sees more than 100 events at some 50+ venues in the city including special exhibitions, performances and lectures. Several major Amsterdam institutions traditionally get involved: this year, events are being organised at Foam, the Oude Kerk, the Stedelijk Museum, EYE Filmmuseum and many more. Acclaimed art institutions such as the Rijksakademie and De Ateliers also throw open their doors to introduce visitors to the work being produced within.
