Spotted in the Jordaan the other day. Here’s a predominantly museum-themed list of events for you today…
- Have you been over to the Amstel? To the architecture center, ARCAM (Prins Hendrikkade 600), or the maritime museum, Het Scheepvaartmuseum (Kattenburgerplein 1), or the science center, NEMO (Oosterdok 2)?
- Curious to visit a canalhouse? Check out Museum Van Loon (Keizersgracht 672; see previous post) or Museum Willet-Holthuysen (Herengracht 605; see previous post) for a preview into the lives of wealthy families from the 17th-19th centuries.
- Photography overload in Amsterdam right now! Head over to the photography museum Foam (Keizersgracht 609; see previous post) for the exhibitions ‘Stanley Greene: Black Passport,’ ‘Sara-Lena Maierhofer: Dear Clark‘ (both till 5 Feb) and ‘Joel Sternfeld: Color Photographs since 1970’ (till 14 March). And the lovely Huis Marseille (Keizersgracht 401; see previous post) has two great exhibitions on display, ‘Siebe Swart: Land of Air and Water‘ and ‘Naoya Hatakeyama: Natural Stories’ (both till 26 Feb).
- The exhibition ‘The Greater Cloud‘ at NIMk (Keizersgracht 264) centers around the internet – the internet as platform, medium or subject matter functions as a source of inspiration for artists and influences their artistic practice. Should be interesting! On display until 5 Feb.
- If you’re heading through Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, don’t miss the ‘Dutch Winters‘ exhibition at the Rijksmuseum, to be viewed till 26 March.
- Head out East and visit a museum with a whole lot of history, the Jewish Historical Museum (Nieuwe Amstelstraat 1). There’s a great exhibition on right now, ‘Saul Leiter: New York Reflections‘ (see my post here). Or the Verzetsmuseum, or ‘Dutch Resistance Museum’ (Plantage Kerklaan 61) for the exhibition ‘Amsterdam through the lens of a secret camera,’ on display until 1 April.
- And if you’re planning a trip to Amsterdam in the near future, don’t forget previous Amsterdam Insight posts with restaurants, shops, museums and more from the months September, October, November and December.
