Gallery tour ArtAbout

You are curious about visual art, but you have no idea where to start? ArtAbout takes you on a tour to the galleries in Amsterdam that matter, and at the same time provides you with a fresh update on what is going on in contemporary art today.

Gallery tour ArtAbout

Although Amsterdam holds an international reputation as a city where the arts and artists feel at home, many hesitate to actually visit a gallery. ArtAbout brings those who are not scared off but want to know more to the right place. The exciting exploration of Amsterdam's most advanced, international galleries will show there is more to Amsterdam than the Stedelijk Museum alone!

Especially for Local Experts art historians Rimme Rypkema and Christine van den Bergh periodically select a number of the most outstanding and surprising shows in town. Helped by the broad knowledge and experience of the guides, ArtAbout gives an inside impression of the art world while approaching the art with a self minded, critical view. Your own observation comes first with a minor role for theory.

With shows ranging from hip, light and cool, to serious, provoking and confusing, ArtAbout is a refreshing acquaintance with today's latest developments. At the right moment an additional explanation is provided, either by the guide or by a gallery-owner himself. Obviously ArtAbout also allows time to test out your own judgment and critical questions are always appreciated.

The tours focus on the main gallery areas in Amsterdam in De Pijp or De Jordaan (depending on the interesting shows are); the tour takes approximately 2,5 hours and are made on foot. If, on rare occasions, additional entrance fees are involved, you will be informed in advance.

A great day!
We had a really good time! You made it a great day. Roel knew how to strike the exact right note and his distinct interest in and knowledge of (the history of) Amsterdam are a relief compared with the average city guide. T. van Zwet
