Must-See Art Guide: Amsterdam
This week's guide features William Eggleston, Enrico Freitag, Banksy, and more.
Come one, come all to the latest edition of Amsterdam’s KunstRAI. As the country’s longest-running contemporary art fair, the event brings an über arty focus to an already arty city with plenty of exhibitions, museum partnerships, and presentations in addition to the normal art fair booths. But you want to stretch your legs, don’t you? Stroll the canals and head over to RADEMAKERS GALLERY for their current eclectic group show, or visit the Moco Museum for their installation of iconic Banksy works in an unlikely, cozy setting. GRIMM Gallery is currently displaying the curious multimedia painting of Matthias Weischer, which serves as an investigation into the depiction of space in the history of art—it’s something to see in person, so don’t miss it. And for photography lovers, any trip to Amsterdam without a stop at the Foam Museum would be incomplete. You still have a chance to catch their exhibition of the master himself William Eggleston, but don’t dawdle, as the show comes down June 7.
