Melkweg Expo is an exhibition space for contemporary photography and a platform for young artists, located in the heart of Amsterdam. With a focus on photography that explores identity, society and pop culture, the exhibition space is also known to occasionally place other forms of visual art alongside photography with conviction. Characterized by a distinctly playful and accessible approach, Melkweg Expo seeks to unveil high quality art – art that is innovative, engaging and inclusive.
Melkweg Expo’s main goal is to nurture and promote emerging talent and present them to a broad audience – from admirers of art and photography addicts, to the casual passers-by of the venue’s central location and music lovers surfacing from the crowd of a Melkweg concert. Melkweg Expo is open later than most exhibition spaces – until 7 PM – to make spontaneous encounters and confrontations with art possible.
With the help of local and international allies, Melkweg Expo presents a unique and largely free programme made up of 10 exhibitions annually, a multidisciplinary festival, events offering emerging photographers advice, portfolio reviews, enlightening talks, screenings and numerous easy-going gatherings.
