Art in Amsterdam 2011

11-15 May

11-15 May 2011

During the art fair Art Amsterdam, you will sense art more than ever. Over forty museums, art initiatives, artist collectives, galleries, art fairs and events have joined forces throughout five days to celebrate contemporary art in the city: experience Art in Amsterdam!

Many contributors to Art in Amsterdam have organized special exhibitions or activities, called ‘Art Tips’. The convenient program, published for this particular occasion, shows the variety in choice and the different locations.

NIMk presents three events during Art in Amsterdam:
