Masterpieces from the Hermitage
Come join us on a unique journey through art history! The Hermitage Amsterdam is celebrating its 10-year anniversary. For the occasion, we gained access to all those wonderful collections of the State Hermitage in St Petersburg and brought together quite some extraordinary museum treasures from the entire history of art. From pure golden archaeological finds from ancient cultures, through sculptures and valuable items dating back to Greek/Roman times, to highlights in painting with big names such as Da Vinci, Dürer, Van Dyck, Matisse, Rembrandt, Tintoretto, Velázquez and Van der Weyden. The fascinating Venus statuette from 23,000 BC is the oldest object, the devilish swan of Belgian artist Jan Fabre is the youngest, from 2016. Over two hundred works of art in a grand journey through art history. Not to miss during your visit to Amsterdam!

Birds & Beasts

4/4 – 2/6/2019

Outsider artists and the animal kingdom

Animals are given a prominent place in the artistic oeuvre of these artists, who differ greatly in their approach and method. For some, they are the exclusive subject of their art. There are a remarkable number of birds: meticulously painted, expressively drawn with chalk and pencil, printed as lino cut, molded in clay, or welded with pieces of rusted metal. Yet many other animals have a home in this exhibition. A must see for every lover of art and animals!

Featuring artists: Wijnand de Vries, Mahmood Khan, Miša Stanojevic, Patrick Visser, Derk Wessels, Chris Weijers, Jescika van Overveld and Harmen Warries.

Facing Spaces

13/6 – 11/8/2019

Architecture and space through the eyes of Leon van Es / Ali Norouzi Pare / Bo Verlinden  / Luuk Geerts / Willem Holt / Maritha Zoutendijk / Michiel Coolen / Chris Weijers / Norbert de Jong / Sietze Poley

Architecture and space are important themes for many outsider artists. Cityscapes with facades and squares, or modern office buildings with endlessly repeating windows, show the artists’ experience of the space around them. These structures can also be an expression of a desire for growth and reflection: ‘How do I build my dream castle without things going awry?’ Others arrange spaces where the creative process is paramount and anything is possible.

Opening exhitbition Thursday 13 June 3 PM. The exhibition will be opened Thursday 13 June 3 PM by Bastiaan Gribling from Cityscapesfoundation (in Dutch).

Outsider Art Gallery

In the Outsider Art Gallery changing exhibitions of well-known and less known outsiders from the Netherlands and abroad take place. You will find paintings, drawings, prints, ceramic statues, sculpture, collages, photos and textile art. All works are for sale, the entrance to the gallery is free.
The Outsider Art Gallery is founded in 2016 by Cordaan care organisation in cooperation with the Hermitage Museum Amsterdam and Museum het Dolhuys Haarlem.

The art in the Outsider Art Gallery is often unconventional. Most the artists have an intellectual or mental disability. They are not concerned with commercial targets and their works do not reflect current trends in art. The art comes bubbling up from within – it is in their minds and just needs to come out. Their work is fascinating, versatile and very pure. The Outsider Art Gallery offers a fully-fledged art platform for these colourful artists, not inside the walls of a care organisation, but rather in an inspiring museum environment.

Outsider Art Studios

Currently a group of 15 artists is at work in the Outsider Art Studios, located above the gallery. They are accompanied by professional artists and pedagogical employees and work on their own art: painting, drawing, print making and digital media. In the studios companies or groups of individuals can also attend art workshops led by an outsider artist.

Outsider Art Lease

The Outsider Art Lease Programme allows you to borrow outsider art works. For more information about workshops, guided tours and/or art lease please look at: www.outsiderartgalerie.nl. Entrance is free.
