Whilst art is 'everywhere' in Amsterdam, you might not expect to come across some on the Nieuwe Dijk, where you'd more likely expect shoe discount stores, and shops selling novelty cigarette lighters.
Behind the Nieuwe Dijk, on Sint Nicholaasstraat however you might be enticed by something different. The Kattenbak artists' collective have taken over six windows, (no, not the red or neon lit type of windows owned by ladies practicing the 'oldest profession'), from where their eclectic works are on display. Yesterday we went to the opening.
Lovely Eva Kroes (Pictured above), Irene van Geest, Heidi Happy and Brian McKenna are exhibiting a multi media show 'Acter Glas', curated and inspired by Marieke Coppens. Achter Glas is a quirky collection of sound, poetry and photography and is on till October 4th. Hanging about in alleys has never been so much fun.
