The Amsterdam Art Foundation aims to highlight Amsterdam’s special role as a cultural centre with a long modernist tradition, and at the same time to showcase today’s emerging artists and the fascinating contemporary art scene.
Amsterdam Art brings together a diverse range of stakeholders in the cultural field by organizing cultural events in and for the city of Amsterdam, thus actively strengthening Amsterdam’s leading position in Europe’s cultural and creative landscape. Its key annual event is the Amsterdam Art Weekend, with a focus on Amsterdam galleries and art institutions in the city. During this annual event galleries, post-graduate artists-in-residence, museums and other cultural institutions hold various state-of-the-art exhibitions with works by young and established international artists.
Marta Gnyp was one of the founders of Amsterdam Art Foundation in 2011.
