Amsterdam Sculpture Biennale ARTZUID
ARTZUID is the leading Sculpture Biennale of the Netherlands. Every two years, 50 high-profile sculptures are exhibited for four months on the green lanes of Amsterdam Zuid. Their mission is to create a new meeting place on the street with a museum-quality selection of sculptures and to make art accessible to everyone free of charge. PLEASE NOTE: The dates and times mentioned for 2025 are subject to change.
Sculptures in Amsterdam South
ARTZUID places modern and contemporary figurative art side by side in 'the Garden of Amsterdam South', interspersed with spatial installations that give the sculpture route more than ever the character of an experiential exhibition. The previous edition was particularly aimed at young people. The new theme has not been announced yet.
For more information, visit the ARTZUID website or stop by the information pavilion at Minervalaan 1 (open daily from 10:00 to 18:00) where the route map and catalog are available.
Every Saturday and Sunday at 1:00 PM, the ARTZUID group tour takes place. You can also book a private tour on a day and time of your choice for your own group. Explore all the possibilities for ARTZUID guided tours.
The 2 km-long route of the Amsterdam Sculpture Biennial runs along the Apollolaan and Minervalaan. Under the title 'Transfer,' fifty sculptures by artists from the (Neo)-Pop Art, Arte Povera, and Nouveau Réalisme movements are displayed on Berlage's avenues in Amsterdam South.
During the last edition, ten artists were commissioned to create new works, including the well-known Amsterdam street artist Frankey, and the remaining sculptures are on loan. The selection of 50 artworks, curated by Jasper Krabbé, represents a mix of internationally renowned artists and young talent, with a focus on engaging the youth.
Appealing to youth
Artist and curator of ARTZUID 2023, Jasper Krabbé, who started in the 1980s on the streets as a graffiti writer JAZ, aims to engage young people with a colourful exhibition. In selecting the sculptures, he chose art that resonates with their lived experience.
