During the last weekend of November, young creators of contemporay visual art will descend upon Amsterdam for the third consecutive year. Amsterdam Art Weekend 2014 gives up-and-coming artists an opportunity to display and sell their work to an audience of art enthusiasts, collectors and professionals. Nearly 30 galleries are partaking in the event by organizing exhibitions, lectures, performances and talks.
Monumental venues will hold debates between promising artists at De Balie including the Oude Kerk in Dam Square, Amsterdam Art Weekend at IFDA and the EYE. Opening their doors to the public, De Rijksakademie and De Ateliers will show the work of post-graduate residency programs. Visitors will get a glimpse of artists before their work one day appears in large museums and biennials around the world. Alongside the public event, a private Professionals Program also takes place.
