Amsterdam Art is committed to strengthening the position of Amsterdam as an international centre for contemporary art. It encourages cooperation between various art institutions and promotes the most cutting-edge artists and exhibitions in the capital city. This reaches the pinnacle during the annual Amsterdam Art Week. The 11th edition is taking place from 31 May - 4 June 2023. In addition to this event, Amsterdam Art presents current offerings from contemporary art institutions on this website, distributes an Amsterdam Art Guide and publishes a digital newsletter. We also organise various gallery opening weekends and events for young professionals.
