the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague.

Hoogtij

Hoogtij (which means High tide in Dutch) is an evening in city of The Hague dedicated to culture in general and art in particular. About 25 galeries, studio’s, musea are open from 7 to 11 PM on ‘Hoogtij’ evenings. Mimi Berlin Blogger Team visited the 57th edition on the 25th of May 2019.

The Hague Heritage

We went to the vernissage of the exhibition ‘The Hague Heritage‘ at the Heden gallery. This show is a hommage to artists who have a link to The Hague. Heden invited 30 artists who are either born, live, work or study(ied) in this city by the sea. These artists each chose their favorite work. The Hague Heritage is running to 07 juli 2019

Margot van Huijkelom at The Grand Amsterdam

Margot van Huijkelom

Margot Huijkelom is an artist with a background in fashion, she’s based in France; to be exact in Barbizon. She was born, raised and educated in the Netherlands, so you could say that she came back to her roots with this exhibition at The Grand Hotel in Amsterdam.

We, at Mimi Berlin, met Margot the other day to have a look at her most recent works. Ms Huijkelom was so kind to take us on a tour around the ground floor, where the walls are covered with her paintings and illustrations.

Fashion Illustrator

Margot’s career has been a divers one, within the bounderies of fashion. She made illustrations, for Vogue Japan, L’officiel and numerous other glossy magazines. She sat next to the haute-couture runways for Le Monde and she has had her work published in several books, she also worked as the art-director for Gerbe in Paris. (more on that later on this blog, promised!) Next to this commisioned work she found out that she could fulfill more of her creative inspirations by painting. As mentioned above; she is based in Barbizon and that’s where she has an atelier where she creates ‘free work’, mostly on canvas made with natural pigments. These works are also on show at The Grand.

On exhibit at the Grand

Huijkelom’s exhibition will run through to the end of August 2019 so you have plenty of time to take a stroll through the hallways of the hotel and enjoy her work for yourself. @margot_van_huijkelom

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.
