Summer closureΒ  Β  Β  Β  Β 

Outsider Art Gallery is closed in the month of July. On August 3 we welcome you again with a new exhibition.

August 3 - October 2 2022. Open Wednesday - Friday, 12 - 5 PM.

Summer Queens

This summer, Outsider Art Galerie sheds light on the theme of femininity with the group exhibition Summer Queens, which only shows work by female (or people who identify as female) artists.

What does it mean to be a woman and what images, stories and symbolism do they use in their art?

Queens, fairytale princesses and divas, portraits of mothers, daughters, famous and unknown women, dreamed lives and fluid identities are just a few subjects that are discussed.

Also: Mirjam Peters recorded the course of her manic depression in pregnant drawings and paintings, Fatma Temiz gives a new meaning to vintage tableware with the help of transfers of her refined drawings and Irina Volova made a majestic portrait of the crown princess and Amsterdam student Amalia.

With Mirjam Peters, Fatma Temiz, Irina Volova, Esrah van Rooij, Tirza de Wild, Froukje Klickermann, Naomi Schupper, Amber Sabajo, Frederique Kok, Lisanne Meijer, Jescika van Overveld, Siobhan Wall and others.

Please note: From September 1, the gallery will also be open again on weekends from 12 - 5 pm, but during the month of August it will be closed on Saturdays and Sundays.

Beeld: Irina Volova

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.
