foam & foam pop-in (amsterdam)

The other week I visited the (no longer on display) exhibition “Still Life: Contemporary Dutch Photography” at Foam, one of the photography museums here in Amsterdam.

Foam can be found at the Keizersgracht 609. Open daily from 10am to 6pm, Thursday and Fridays till 9pm. This location of Foam is currently closed till November 5th, when the museum will reopen for the exhibition, “What’s Next? The Future of the Photography Museum,” by guest curators Jefferson Hack (founder of Dazed & Confused magazine), Alison Nordstrom (Director of Photographs at the George Eastman House), Erik Kessels (co-founder of KesselsKramer) and Lauren Cornell (Curator of the New Museum). More about the exhibition here.

In the meantime, you can visit the Foam Pop-In at the Museumplein (Gabriel Metsustraat 2-6), open till November 5th. Here you’ll find a large selections of books, posters and other publications (including the famous Foam Magazine) as well as a temporary exhibition. Here are some photographs of the Foam Pop-In from my visit with my sister

As if one pop up museum isn’t enough, Foam Lab has just recently opened an exhibition, “Foam Talent,” at the Vijzelstraat 78 (open daily from 10am to 6pm and Thursdays and Fridays till 9pm). This exhibition features 15 young artists from around the world, and will be on display till December 15th.

And if you haven’t gotten enough of Foam yet (as I surely haven’t!) stop by on Museumnacht or ‘Museum Night,’ November 5th, for great events at all 3 locations. Subbacultcha! is teaming up with Foam – there will be performances by Dirty Beaches and DJ zZz at the Foam Pop-In, Stellar Om Source and Jeremiah Jae (and more) at the Keizersgracht location, and other bands (and a Youtube dance floor) at the Vijzelstraat location. Don’t miss out on this great evening!
