ThisArtFair 2018 Amsterdam

ThisArtFair

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.
