Become arty in Amsterdam
The 26th edition of Art Amsterdam starts tomorrow (May 26th) and runs until May 30th and you would be crazy to miss out on it!
There will surely be something there that you are interested in, with 126 galleries to check out in the RAI Exhibition Centre and an array of different styles on show. From paintings, photographs and video art to installations, drawings and even sculptures - it is all there for people to see.
One of the main attractions to take in this year is called No Holds Barred, which is set to make its debut and "is an ode to the essence of art: innovation, surprise and a desire to constantly push back the boundaries", according to the event website.
It added: "Everything's possible, everything's allowed: a photo montage, a performance, an installation, a conceptual work, a film nothing is impossible. The only rule is that the proposed work of art may not take up more than 25 sq m."
The last time I went to this event there were some sublime exhibitions on show and that was without them giving a no holds barred allowance on artistic licence, so I can't imagine just how spectacular some of the displays will be this time around.
