Watching the Installation of Sculptures in Amsterdam by ArtZuid
ArtZuid is an open air sculpture biennial in Amsterdam’s Southern district in The Netherlands. The free accessible exhibition premiered in 2009. As we speak, In May 2015, the fourth edition of ArtZuid, curated by Rudi Fuchs, is being installed. We, at Mimi Berlin, went to see the humongous sculptures, made by international artists, being placed at the Apollolaan and Minervalaan. And that alone is worth a visit… About 66 sculptures will be on show by artists such as Jaume Plensa, Markus Lüpertz, Hans Josephsohn, Per Kirkeby, Michael Craig and Georg Baselitz (amongst many others). The ArtZuid Sculpture Route is 2,8 km long, which will make do for a nice art-stroll through the luscious streets of the “Old South” quarters in Amsterdam. (photocredits; ©JW Kaldenbach/ArtZuid)
