Upstream at Amsterdam Art Fair 2015

Between 27 and 31 May, the Amsterdam Art Fair takes place at the Kunsthal Citroën in Amsterdam, located in the former Citroën garage at the Stadionplein in Amsterdam.

A New Art Fair
Wim van Krimpen, former director of the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague and the Kunsthal Rotterdam, as well as the founder of the KunstRAI in 1984, thought it was about time for a new art fair: "With the reopening of the Rijksmuseum and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam has regained its position as the cultural heart of the Netherlands. What Amsterdam now needs is a fair where quality in an international setting is key and where both, the experienced art connoisseur and the fledgling collector feel at home and make unique discoveries”.

Beatrix Ruf, director of the Stedelijk Museum, will officially open Amsterdam Art Fair on Wednesday, May 27th at 5:30 pm.

Upstream at booth 41
During the fair, you can find the presentation of Upstream Gallery at booth 41. We will bring an exciting selection of new works from Frank Ammerlaan, Marc Bijl, David Haines, Maartje Korstanje, Ronald Ophuis and Rob Voerman.

Frank Ammerlaan, who recently had the solo show Faith by Proxy at Upstream Gallery, will be present with a stunning dyptich oil on canvas painting. Marc Bijl will exhibit his new stainless steel PORN wallpiece. Rob Voerman is present with a larger installation. Furthermore Upstream will show new sculptures by Maartje Korstanje, drawings by David Haines, and oil on paper works by Ronald Ophuis.

We hope to see you there and look forward to showing you these new developments in the work of our artists!

The entire ground floor will be occupied by the exhibition BEELD, selected by Karel Schampers, former director of the Frans Hals Museum and Joost Declercq, director of the Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens. BEELD shows the state of contemporary sculpture, with ao recent work from Maartje Korstanje.
