Sculptures in Amsterdam South

The eighth edition
The eighth edition of the biennial sculpture exhibition ARTZUID in Amsterdam South will take place from Saturday, 20 May to Sunday, 24 September 2023. The 2 km long route of the Amsterdam Sculpture Biennale runs along Apollolaan and Minervalaan. Under the title 'Transfer', fifty sculptures by artists from the (Neo)-Popart, Arte Povera, and Nouveau Realisme movements can be found on Berlage's avenues in Amsterdam South. Ten artists were commissioned to create new work, including the well-known Amsterdam street artist Frankey; the other images have been taken on loan. The selection of 50 works of art, put together by curator Jasper Krabbé, represents a mix of internationally renowned artists and young talent and is mainly aimed at appealing to young people.
Appealing to youth
Artist and curator of ARTZUID 2023 Jasper Krabbé, who himself started out on the street as graffiti writer JAZ in the 1980s, wants to appeal to young people in particular with a colorful exhibition. When selecting the images, he therefore opted for art that is close to their world.
