Art In Redlight #8

It's always wonderful to check out art in the Netherlands. The eighth installment of Amsterdam's Art in Redlight independent art fair was held 20-23 September in the Oude Kerk (Old Church). Over 280 works from 54 artists and designers were on display and the focus in this edition was on applied art. We observed some really interesting pieces during our exploration of the exhibition...what do you think?

I’m usually not a big fan of art museums, but this one looks really interesting! I haven’t been to Amsterdam (or the Netherlands at all!) yet so I’ll have to keep this one in mind when I finally make it there.

This is actually an independent art fair, so not a fixed museum. Though Amsterdam does have a couple of really nice art museums, such as the Van Gogh museum and some more obscure ones like the tattoo museum.

Oooh, luggage and horses, two of my favorite things! These are pretty fabulously creative.

Yeah, the art here was pretty special!

What great finds! The Water in Java was very deep I thought…and well done.

I agree – really special that one

What a great venue for a modern art exhibit. Will have to plan on being there for this one year. Thanks for sharing!

Definitely! They should post the dates on their website. So worth a look =)

I should pick the luggage art 🙂 Carrying my bags around is one of my least favorite parts of traveling, so anyone who can turn that into art has my respect.

The luggage art is popular! Wish I knew more about the artist and his/her meaning with it…
