This activity has ended.

The exhibition The Love of Art Comes First highlights the significance and history of Art & Project.


Art & Project (Amsterdam 1968-1989, Slootdorp 1990-1998) was one of the pioneering galleries of contemporary art in the Netherlands and far beyond. Its founders Geert van Beijeren (1933-2005) and Adriaan van Ravesteijn (1938-2015) presented a programme featuring national and international artists, which was initially closely associated with the rise of conceptual art, but later broadened its focus with an emphasis on sculpture and painting.

Artists' books & archive material

In the exhibition you will see more than 100 works by artists including Jan Dibbets, Ger van Elk, Gilbert & George, Willy Ørskov, Barry Flanagan, Richard Long and Nicholas Pope. The exhibition also includes artists’ books and special archive material, including photographs, correspondence with artists, notes and objects.


Accompanying the exhibition is an extensive program for young and old. For example, grab one of the Eye Openers in the room and learn more about the works of art. Or engage in a conversation with one of our public guides. They will stimulate you with a question, tell you more about the artwork and give you a different perspective. There are workstations in the exhibition where you can create your own bulletin, respond to statements and add something personal to the exhibition archive.
