The participating galleries include all the top-flight Dutch galleries, plus 31 foreign galleries from ten countries: Germany, Great Britain, Belgium, France, Denmark, Austria, South Africa, United States, Japan and Korea. Unique event: 120 solos Anneke Oele, director of Art Amsterdam, comments, ‘In this special year – the 25th edition – I have chosen this unique solo concept, which means that all 120 galleries will devote at least 25 square metres of their stand to the work of one artist. Solo presentations provide a good overall impression of the work of a particular artist and also create a sense of both tension and rest in the exhibition. This will create a splendid event consisting of 120 solo exhibitions, which is unique in the art world.’ For example, Gallery Willy Schoots will devote no less than 100 square metres to the work of Armando, and Artitled of Berghem will feature a solo of Daniel & Geo Fuchs. Koraalberg, a gallery from Antwerp, will have a solo exhibition of the work of Warre Mulder. Gallery Onrust will have a solo exhibition of Peer Veneman, Kunsthandel Rueb will feature an installation produced by the late Ritsaert ten Cate and Gallery Ferdinand van Dieten-dÉendt will feature the works of Moroccan artist Mounir Fatmi. Gallery Tanya Rumpff will stage a sole exhibition of Jurriaan Molenaar, Gallery Majke Hüsstege will feature Rozemarijn Westerink and Gallery Helga Hofman will present the works of Marliz Frencken. The German gallery Conrads will have a solo exhibition of Leo de Goede.
