Melkweg Expo

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. Characterized by a playful and accessible approach, we seek to unveil high quality art, which is innovative, engaging and inclusive.

Our main goal is to nurture and promote emerging talent and present them to a broad audience: from art admirers and photography addicts to casual passers-by and music lovers after a Melkweg concert. We’re always open till 11 PM and even till dawn for Melkweg audience to make spontaneous encounters and confrontations with art possible.

With local and international allies we present a unique and mostly free programme of 10 exhibitions a year, a multidisciplinary festival, practical tip-offs, portfolio reviews, enlightening talks, screenings, easy-going gatherings and of course our renowned opening parties.

Right now our doors are closed. Stay tuned for updates on our September expo!
