15 May – 19 September
15 May – 19 September
From 15 May to 19 September 2021, the 7th edition of ARTZUID will take place. The Amsterdam Sculpture Biennale presents an experiential exhibition with more than sixty works of art on the 2.5 km long route. The heart of the exhibition lies in Berlage’s monumental Plan Zuid with its leafy Apollolaan and Minervalaan. In this green environment, theatrical arrangements of modern and contemporary sculptures and interactive spatial installations can be seen. Each edition of ARTZUID includes a varied programme of guided tours, artist talks and educational materials for schools. During the exhibition, the sculptures can be viewed 24/7 free of charge. Roadmaps, catalogues and merchandise will be available from 15 May 2021 in the Information Pavilion at Minervalaan 1 or via the webshop.
ARTZUID presents work by internationally renowned artists and young talent. Diversity and inclusiveness are central to the selection of the sculptures, with the aim of creating an attractive and educational public exhibition. Thanks to the sculpture route, the avenues and squares in Amsterdam Zuid are turning into places of encounter. The curator and the theme will be announced in the spring of 2021.
Every Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m. the ARTZUID entrance tour takes place. You can also book a personal group tour on a day and time of your choice for your own company. See all the possibilities for guided tours.
