The Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is an icon that appeals to the imagination of many. Her turbulent, tragic life certainly contributes to that! Frida Kahlo is regarded in art history as one of the most important female artists of the 20th century. In her paintings she knew like no other how to connect her personal destiny with Mexican folk art, that was unique at the time! 30 artists have given their homage to this fantastic artist in their own way and in their own style.
The opening of Viva Frida! on July 13, 2019 celebrates the 65th death anniversary of the amazing Frida Kahlo.
The exhibition is on display until August 24th and is also part of the Art & Culture Pride.
6 Artists will show their new works in our new exhibition PINK with PRIDE 2018. ENDLESS, René Zuiderveld, Chris Marmier, Holger Zimmerman, Ard Doko & R’JEAN.
Noteworthy is the work of the Rotterdam photographer R’JEAN.
His new collection, ‘Drag Royals – Each Side Has a Face’ is a series of photos of Drag Kings & Queens, half in the make-up and half a wig.
All manual work, there is no photo shop involved.
Finally we moved to our brand new gallery, not far from where we were located for 20 years: Marnixstraat 127 in Amsterdam.
The new location is still in the Jordaan, but much easier to access with public transport from Central Station and all other directions of the city (bus & tram stop across the gallery). We’re very happy being in this great authentic neighbourhood and our fantastic neighbours of ‘Duende Dos’, the famous Spanish tapas restaurant on the corner of Nieuwe Willemsstraat.
Our first exhibition is ‘PINK with PRIDE’, our annual Amsterdam GayPride exhibition. This exhibition shows the works of some young international talents, opening on Saturday July 15, 5 – 8 pm.
You will be welcomed by the Brothers Grimm.

Peter Berlin’s solo show for Euro Pride will feature a stimulating collection of unique and hand edited vintage photographs and newer prints, where the artist portrays himself as the world’s first Selfie-photographer in erotic poses, both naked and clothed, in skin-tight outfits that he used to create for the shoots that left little to the imagination.
