Mimi Blogger Team went to visit the preview of ‘ThisArtFair’ at the Beurs van Berlage in the citycenter of Amsterdam.
Without a gallery
‘ThisArtFair’ is an annual art fair held at the end of December. Special thing about this fair is the fact that it’s set up for artists to exhibit without a gallery. There are some gallery booths present, so the concept isn’t that strict. Come to think of it, nothing seems ‘strict’ at this fair; which is fun.
Above: We purchased art made by Caspar Braat Below:some of our favourite work. “over 120 artists, with and without a gallery, show and sell their works at the fair.” (thisartfair.com) Open from 27 until 30 December 2018.
