Tickets for Stedelijk Museum: Skip The Line
A mecca of modern art masterpieces
- Spend an enlightening day surrounded by modern art
- See works by Warhol, Kandinsky, Rodin, Matisse, Pollock and more
- Explore the regularly revolving temporary exhibitions
This new exhibition brings to light works from the Stedelijk's own extensive collection that examine migration and national identity. Combining photography, painting and sculpture, the exhibition examines how displacement and exile shapes creative works, and how artists can express their feelings of 'otherness' through their work.
What became known as the ‘Keith Haring velum’ was first created for his 1986 solo exhibition at the Stedelijk and then put into storage for 30 years. See the American artist's famed canopy, which filters daylight into the Stedelijk Museum's grand hallway, now back on proud display for everyone to enjoy.
Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum, the permanent home of the Dutch National Museum of Modern Art, has one of the richest modern art collections in the world. As well as regularly rotating temporary exhibitions, the museum houses many modern classics.
The permanent collection of the Stedelijk (Dutch for 'municipal') Museum includes works from leading lights of 19th- and 20th-century painting. Artists include Monet, Picasso and Chagall - as well as Pop Art from Warhol and Lichtenstein.
There are also abstracts by Mondrian and Kandinsky, a unique collection of 29 paintings by influential avant-garde painter Casimir Malevich, and a whole lot more. With a collection of 90,000 works of art in its 9,000m2 of exhibition space, there's sure to be something for everyone.
The terrace that opens onto Amsterdam's famous Museumplein is the perfect spot to relax after your museum visit, enjoy a slice of cake, and repeatedly say to your companions, "Yes, the art was beautiful, but what does it mean?".
