Once a year, Amsterdam Art Weekend takes over the city with hundreds of events focused around the city's emerging talents, extended gallery opening hours and inside looks at some of Amsterdam's most renowned cultural institutions. This year, they've teamed up with the Young Collectors Circle, a collective of art-lovers and collectors-to-be, to give a curated look at the weekend's best offerings.
Kick off with a guided tour through the (usually closed to the public) Rijksakademie for a peek at the country's most promising young talent, followed by artist studio tours. Then, head back to The Apartment to talk through all the ins and outs of starting your own art collection, developing your own taste and style and having a bit of fun with it. That's not all, either: after you're armed with all the information you need to curate a well-thought out collection, hit the galleries around the Jordaan participating in the weekend to snap up some key pieces.
