03 NOVEMBER: MUSEUMNACHT IN AMSTERDAM
Sunday 21 October 2012 at 5:07 pm
On the 3rd of November 50 museums in Amsterdam will once again open their doors after dark to offer an exciting programme featuring art, music, film and more.
The Museum Night formula is based on a simple idea: the darker it gets, the younger and better looking visitors seem to become. While visual artists need light to create, their audiences are more drawn to nocturnal settings, preferably involving drinks, music, schmoozing and other pleasant diversions. Museum Night Amsterdam delivers and is now bigger than ever, with 50 participating museums and after-parties at many other locations including Paradiso, Melkweg, ClubUp and Trouw.
03 November - around 50 Amsterdam museums, 19.00-02.00
Subbacultcha! @ EYE
Join us at the city’s favourite new film museum for a better-than-3D all-nighter, with performances from Patten, Mike Koldin, Wooden Constructions, Mineral Beings, Modern Witch and Spilt Milk.
Taking off tonight is New Art Space Amsterdam (NASA) at the former SMART Project Space. NASA originates from SMART and the defunct Netherlands Media Art Institute (NIMk). Gabriel Lester will open his exhibition ‘Twist’ with intense sonic performances.
Andy Warhol in church
Aside from Andy Warhol’s pink variation on Da Vinci’s ‘Last Supper’ mural, the Nieuwe Kerk exhibits a selection of Warhol’s Screen Tests. In the mid-Sixties the darling of pop art filmed around 500 photogenic faces. Andy’s personal selection of Most Beautiful Women and Boys will be screened tonight.
De Kift @ Verzetsmuseum
Dark, creaky and grimy with Dutch clay, outward-bound orchestra De Kift approaches its 25th year. Mixing restrained punk folk, scrapheap brass and reclusive poetry this anarchic company is right at home at the museum dedicated to resistance.
Rocket Cinema ft. Steve Severin @ Oude Kerk
Goth prototype and Siouxsie & The Banshees co-founder Severin performs new music to the 1931 German classic Vampyr. During the night more silent cinema will be soundtracked and mashed up.
Diane Arbus & Eddie the Eagle Museum @ FOAM
Hopping from one art hotspot to the next, free-flowing Eddie the Eagle Museum has landed at FOAM’s Diane Arbus exhibition for events inspired by the photographer who opened her eye to the humanly challenged.
