Amsterdam Art Weekend is an art festival organized by Capital A. For three days, in combination with the Rijksakademie’s open studio’s (RijksakademieOPEN), the second edition of the Amsterdam Art Weekend will take place. Workshops, galleries and art institutes will join together to present Amsterdam’s latest and best contemporary art. Our mission statement: Amsterdam is a hothouse of extraordinary talent.
Amsterdam Art Weekend essential aspect is talent development: the path that leads artists through the studios of the Rijksakademie, De Ateliers and the galleries of Amsterdam, on their way to the international art scene. Galleries display the work of alumni and residents of the participating artists’ studios. Art institutes present the work of artists affiliated to the city’s galleries. Galleries offer exhibitions and special events such as performances, artist talks, concerts, and small-scale art fairs.
