On Saturday, September 13 at 16:00 opens at the ABC Three House - the gallery branch of the American Book Center in the Voetboogstraat 11 in Amsterdam (close to Spui) - the exhibition “The Reunion”, featuring Iranian brothers and street artists ICY & SOT and their friends and fellow artists ILL, FRZ and MAD. 

In November 2011 Klerkx International Art Management (KIAM) showed the work of Icy & Sot for the first time in Amsterdam (the show was sold out). In 2012 the brothers moved to New York, where KIAM hosted their second exhibition in a gallery in Broom Street (in collaboration with Ali Salehezadeh). This year Icy & Sot will be travelling to Europe for the first time (before their stop in Amsterdam they take part in the big street art festival NUart in Norway). And even more special: they will meet with their friends from Tabriz Ill, FRZ and MAD after a long time and attend the opening all together. Watch this clip, made in 2011 in Iran, where you can see them working together: http://vimeo.com/32698651

On Friday September 12 we will host a special evening with these five Iranian friends at Pakhuis de Zwijger, Piet Heinkade 179, Amsterdam: a public interview, clips, live painting and music. Join us!

Klerkx International Art Management and the artists want to thank the American Book Center and Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam for their kind collaboration.

Beautiful work by Skount.  Young and very prolific artist from Spain is currently residing in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.  It is extremely refreshing to see new work that puzzles one’s mind and makes one search for more.  Well done, Raul*

SCREAM

The Scream, the painting, which dates from 1895, by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch has become the most expensive work of art ever sold at auction after being bought for \$119.9m (£74m).  The previous record for the most expensive work of art sold at auction had been held by Picasso’s Nude, Green Leaves And Bust.

The SCREAM piece went under the hammer at Sotheby's auction house in New York after a tense 12-minute bidding war between seven buyers.

Head of Sotheby’s Impressionist and Modern Art New York department Simon Shaw told Sky News Online: “I can’t think of an occasion quite so historic as the presentation of Edvard Munch’s The Scream.

"It’s an image perhaps more recognisable than any other picture, which is part of our visual culture today.

 ’I could not.  Yet I was satisfied when I discovered that the sun, for instance, could not be reproduced but must be represnted by something else…. by colour’

ARTCHES: GIVING WESTPOORT A LIFE

ARTCHES: GIVING WESTPOORT A LIFE

We are proud to present: ARTCHES Open Art Galleries, scheduled to have a grand unveiling during The Amsterdam Museum Night 2012, 4 November. This unique project - which already received endorsement from municipal planning agency Ontwikkelingsbedrijf Gemeente Amsterdam - will nest in the heart of the new Sloterdijk Station in Westpoort Amsterdam: The second biggest station in Amsterdam and within the top nine in The Netherlands.

What is ARTCHES?

The train tracks of the Sloterdijk Station are supported by two rows of 60 impressive but boring pillars made of grey cement. 6 of these pillars will be transformed into ARTCHES with monumental paintings of 12 internationally renowned artists. Via the use of QR-codes, the ARTCHES experience will be expanded to a rich online experience.  More possible places shall be rolled out in the foreseeable future.

 Who’s behind ARTCHES?

Stichting Glamorous Outcasts is an arts and culture foundation registered in the Netherlands. The foundation is involved in planning and organising public and community art projects, and works in close partnership with Urban Symbiose architects and Hello,Savants! creative new media collective.

Our goal

The ultimate goal is urban regeneration and community involvement through the ARTCHES project that covers the successful symbioses of international and local art with architecture.  By giving Westpoort a face, a life; ARTCHES will not only transform the anonymous and ghostly Westpoort area into a vivacious historical landmark of the city of Amsterdam. It will also ignite curiosity of media & press, resulting in global coverage.

The audience

Numerous companies are looking into the opportunities to create an ecologically exciting environment for about 54,000 employees that work in the Westpoort area. Almost all of those pass Sloterdijk Station’s 60 pillars each day. Real estate and project development companies are working hard to interest and attract even more business.

Over 10,000 students from 4 colleges in the area will directly be reached by the project and/or involved in the realisation: Hout- en Meubileringscollege, Hogeschool Tio (toeristische informatie opleiding), Mediacollege Amsterdam and ROCA (techniekopleidingen).

The energy of over 100,000 daily train and metro passengers in transit will be ignited to generate mass spread of the ARTCHES project through the new media means.

About the art

Through management by Glamorous Outcasts and sponsorship by culture funds and local businesses 12 internationally renowned artists, each with at least 10,0000 followers on the internet, will:

• deliver 12 monumental paintings;

• engage residents and visitors via new media tools and supporting online content;

• enhance the existing magnificence of architecture with warm and vibrant art;

• create one of the biggest in the Netherlands art galleries with the open door policy.

The paintings will be displayed on wooden canvases made out of recycled wood and can be removed without damage to the architecture and placed on display at another spot in a city or a country (scalable, moving exhibition).

Sponsoring and partnership opportunities

Opportunities to advertise, sponsor or to do partnerships with ARTCHES can all be explored to accommodate individual ROI requirements.
