A radical shift in showcasing contemporary art
Art space founded by Marsha Plotnitsky in 2012
The Merchant House presents contemporary art in a project-based curated program with sales of art as a funding strategy. Established in 2012 by Marsha Plotnitsky, Artistic Director, it is a modern take on the Amsterdam tradition of a merchant. The program aims to contribute to artists’ careers, to participate in international art historical discourse, and to stimulate a vibrant cultural dialogue in the city. TMH has showcased international and Dutch innovators, such as Henk Peeters, Jan Schoonhoven, André de Jong, Chuck Close, Carolee Schneemann, Hilarius Hofstede, Craigie Horsfield, Judit Reigl, and Pino Pinelli. Each exhibition is accompanied by related cultural and research events and extensive catalogues as documentation.
