For the fifth consecutive year, Unseen Amsterdam is hosting Open Gallery Night in collaboration with some of Amsterdam’s most cutting-edge art venues. Melkweg Expo welcomes you with cocktails, tunes and special artist-guided tours through the exhibition. Especially for this evening MILK is making you delicious GTs, cosmopolitans and margaritas for only six euros.
The Image is Our Voice
Five photographers, fives voices, five projects which raise questions about themes that span from cultural identity to socio-economic processes and politics. The selected photographers have one thing in common: they use images to question the world around them and propose challenging perspectives to their audience. Examining subjects that are hidden rather than distinctly visible, they are eager to engage with the photographic medium and stretch its borders. We proudly present to you the futures of photography: Eline Benjaminsen, Verena Blok, Pleun Gremmen, Eva Kreuger, and Kevin Osepa.
With a cocktail in your hand, you meet the artists behind your favourite photographs in our artist-guided tours and afterwards you can stretch your legs on our dancefloor. The beat won’t drop till 23:00.
Melkweg Expo is an exhibition space for contemporary photography and a platform for young artists, located in the heart of Amsterdam. While our main focus lays on photography that explores identity, our society or pop culture in in the broadest sense, we occasionally welcome other forms of visual art as well.
