Amsterdam Art Week 2023 takes place from May 31 to June 4. During Amsterdam Art Week, the capital is transformed into an international hub for art lovers, collectors, art professionals and artists. For five days, the city will be buzzing with contemporary art in all its manifestations. Visitors are invited to discover the most fascinating art(ists) at more than 50 locations across the city: from renowned galleries, residencies and museums to new institutions and experimental project spaces.

Rijksakademie Open Studios: Thursday, June 1
The Amsterdam Art Week kicks off in a celebratory fashion on Thursday, hosting a joint VIP opening with the Rijksakademie Open Studios. The Open Studios offer the opportunity to get an insight into the next generation of artists on the cusp of wider international breakthrough. During the event Amsterdam acts as a magnet, attracting international artists and (young) creative talent from across the globe.

Exhibition openings: Friday, June 2
Across the five days, Amsterdam Art Week hosts a wide range of different exhibition openings, with brand new exhibitions from a diverse pool of up-and-coming and established artists, solo exhibitions and group shows. On Friday June 2 all galleries open for the public with celebratory opening drinks to showcase the newly exhibiting artists. Visitors are invited to join gallery tours or explore what the art week has to offer in the city, by foot or by hopping on a bike.

Gallery Specials: Saturday & Sunday, June 3–4
On Saturday, June 3, the participants of Amsterdam Art Week 2023 open up their doors for a series of events specially conceived for Amsterdam Art Week. These include artist talks, open studio visits, film screenings, book launches, performances and much more. The full programme is available to view here.

Eye Filmmuseum: Saturday & Sunday, June 3–4
Contemporary art enters the cinema. With the video programme New Harvest, the best new moving image based works from 2022-2023 will be screened in the cinemas of Eye Filmmuseum. Artists from participating galleries and residencies will submit their video works. The committee consists of Karen Archey (Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam), Ghita Skali (artist) and Marian Cousijn (Eye Filmmuseum) will make a selection.

Oude Kerk: Saturday, June 3
On Saturday, June 3, acclaimed Dutch artist Jeanne van Heeswijk will talk to Palestinian artist Isshaq Albarbary about the cross-fertilisation between a social artist practice, “community assembly” and practice research. Albarbary is one of the central participants in the collective project It’s OK… in the Oude Kerk. Albarbary’s work questions the heritage of refugees and how culture is made into a weapon.

ISO Saturday performance night & afterparty: Saturday June 3
GOODNIGHT—A night of performances, studio visits, followed by an after party. Saturday June 3, 8:30pm–4pm at iso amsterdam. Specially created by iso, the night programme proposes a series of performances by Anto López Espinosa and Lucía Vives and studio-visits of a group of iso residents; the dynamic programme will descend into the late night with an after party, featuring a DJ set from French artist Kévin Bray.

Alongside the public programme, Amsterdam Art has an extensive VIP programme for art professionals and collectors.
