It’s that time of the year again: Amsterdam’s KunstRai, the annual artfair, is open. Mimi Berlin Blogger Team visited the opening and took some partysnaps for you, ’cause we know you like that! We didn’t take many because we actually partied and mingled; but we took some see them on facebook!
Look at these wonderful dinnerplates! They were handmade by Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, members of the English Bloomsbury Group. In 1932 they created “The Famous Women Dinner Service”, a series of fifty dinnerplates, painted with portraits of famous an fabulous women: 12 dancers and actresses, 12 writers, 12 beauties, and 12 queens.

Museumvisits Photographed by Mimi Berlin’s Blogger Team
Mimi Blogger Team visits exhibitions all the time. We often take Partysnaps but we also like to like to incorporate the art itself in our photo’s. Over the years we gathered a large collection of people watching the art on show. The moments we capture are special or absurd or just plain pretty. We also like to take these photo’s when we’re bored or when the younger audience is bored. Also if it’s too crowded to really have a look at the paintings (or other form of art) on show, which is often the case on opening nights.
