ArtZuid the Amsterdam Sculpture Biennial 2019

ArtZuid

The bi-annual open-air sculpture route in Amsterdam, ArtZuid is open for visits. The sixth edition is curated by artist Michiel Romeyn and art historian Jhim Lamoree. On show are about sixty sculptures on a 2,5 km route on the streets of Amsterdam. Easiest way to see the sculptures, in our opinion, is to just start walking from the Apollolaan or the Minervalaan, here you find the information pavilion as well.

ArtZuid Route

If you want guidance there’s lot’s of choice. Artcamps, lectures, tours, artist talks and other events are programmed for your convenience. Otherwise just go out whenever you fancy and walk by yourself. The route is open 24/7 until September 2019 and is free of charge.

Plan Zuid is the Heart

The first edition was held ten years ago in 2009. It’s original place is Plan Zuid (“South Plan”) which is the urban concept by the Dutch architect Berlage realized in 1915. Plan Zuid is the “heart” of ArtZuid. The Dutch sculpture route has grown massively since 2009, branching out to the MuseumPlein and the Zuidas business district. Also a new annex in Amstelveen is open. For more and adequate informatio about the route it’s best go to the website: artzuid.nl

Cobra Art Camping in Amstelveen

Art Camping Cobra

The Cobra Museum of modern art in Amstelveen is organizing ‘Camping Cobra‘ on the 25th of May 2019. What is this, you ask of us. Well, it’s exactly what you think it is. A sleepover at the Museum. Hunderd people can bring their sleepingbags and matresses to spend the night. Bringing your own matresses isn’t very chique, we know, but this is a slumberparty for children of course. We all now a child doesn’t need comfort whilst sleeping (tsssss). Adults are also welcome but they have to be accompanied by a kid.

24H Amstelveen Festival

The Camping event is organized within the 24H Amstelveen festival. 24H Amstelveen is about the experience of more than 40 activities in Amstelveen in just 24 hours. We suppose that’s for people with very little time to spend, like tourists for example, but also for children obviously.

Anyways, everything ‘tongue in cheek’ aside; if you would like to sleep under famous paintings made by Karel Appel and friends make a reservation here. It costs €10,-.

PS
We do hope that everybody reading this post knows what the Cobra Museum is. If not let us tell you. Cobra stands for Copenhagen (Co), Brussels (Br), Amsterdam (A), it is an expressionist art movement from the 20th century (1948-1951). the Cobra Museum in Amstelveen houses only work made by the artists whitin this group.
