For the thirteenth time the art fair REALISME is organized in the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam. It is the only art fair in the Netherlands, and maybe even in the world, exclusively devoted to contemporary figurative and realistic art. With its history going back to the famous 17th century - the Golden Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer -, figurative and realistic art is very much rooted in the Netherlands and still immensely popular. At Realisme, around 30 national and international galleries exhibit and sell works of art by Dutch and foreign artist. Realisme showcases artworks by renowned artists as well as by young artists who shed new light on figurative art. Among the galleries are long term participants such as gallery Petit and Mark Peet Visser, but also newcomers as Archaeopteryx Lithographica from Amsterdam and Thompson’s Gallery from London.

The fair takes place in the lofty hall of the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam, where large cruiseships dock during the summer, but which is used as a venue for cultural events during the winter. It is conveniently located at the IJ waterfront boulevard near Central Station.

Thursday 21 till Sunday 24 January 2016
Daily from 11.00 am until 7.00 pm, Friday evening open until 8.00 pm.
