Stichting Amsterdam Art promotes and connects Amsterdam's contemporary art institutions and artists to strengthen the city's artistic ecosystem to make it accessible to local and international audiences.

Since 2011, we have organised the annual Amsterdam Art Week, strengthening the city as a meeting place for (inter)national artists, art lovers, professionals and collectors. Amsterdam Art Week encourages collaborations, special programming and special events among its members and activates their overarching network of visitors and art professionals to rediscover the Amsterdam art world every year.
