Exhibition 'Odyssee 2.0' on the NDSM Wharf in Amsterdam
The Odyssey is Homer's epic about Odysseus' journey to Ithaca. A journey full of challenges, misery, monsters and temptations. The stories are about betrayal, but also about cleverness and love, perseverance, creativity and hope. A metaphor for man's journey through life and the search for its meaning.
Odysseus, the main character, is the archetype of hero or adventurer. Man who is confronted with the problems of all times: temptation, corruption, waste, egocentrism, escapism, ignorance, intolerance, abuse of power.
How does modern man deal with this? How do you deal with this? Do we close our eyes and let ourselves be carried away by the wind or do we swim against the current and overcome the whirlpools and dangers that threaten to devour us, like Odysseus? The works of art are housed in five rooms named after the places that Odysseus visits and that symbolize the trials that people undergo in life.
Curator: Ellen Klijzing
Artists: Lennaart Allan, Guévørk Aivazian, Lies Aris, Sietse H. Bakker, Joris Berger, Simone Boon, Vincent Boschma, Allard Boterenbrood, Rika Maja Duevel, Ester Eva Damen, Simon Floter, Fabien Gruau, Frank Hietbrink, Vladimir Hristov, Ossa Kierkegaard, Esther Kin, Ellen Klijzing, Nanny Kok, DH Mack, Helena Kaori Maeda, Femke Moedt, Hanneke de Munck, Benny van der Plank, Pieter Post, Ana Queen, Paul Rinzo, Regina Rorije, Jan Seelen, Helga van Stralen, Elvira Vroomen, Marius van Zandwijk.

Exhibition 'Black & White' in Athens
Blank Wall Gallery continues its exhibitions with black and white photographs, thus presenting in two consecutive exhibitions both ways of expression and presentation of photography, Color and Black & White. Photographers from all over the world will present their works in Black & White. This kind of photography has many artists who serve it with passion. That is why exhibitions on this subject always have many participants. More than perhaps any other genre. The topics vary, but the lack of color is the dominant element that unites all the works. Images that travel the mind and the imagination and leave plenty of space for the viewers to create their own colors, their own shades, in whatever intensity they want, and to dress everything they see in front of them according to their own mood. These photographs evoke memories and feelings to the older ones and at the same time are a field of exploration for the younger ones, who do not have such images to recall from their memory.
The exhibition will remain at the gallery until April 13th and all those who are fans of Black & White photography are welcome to enjoy it. Due to the hygienic measures, the visit to the gallery area is made by presenting a certificate of vaccination or disease and using a mask

Open Ateliers Amsterdam Noord 2021
Hello? Open Ateliers Amsterdam Noord: with 115 participants, it’s the biggest artists event in Amsterdam! “Hello?” is this year’s theme. It represents the encounter, the tentative approach, the desire to meet others, the exchange of ideas about art and culture, and the act of getting to know each other. “We survived! It’s been uncertain, lonely, dramatic, uncomfortable, and downright horrible, but also cathartic and stimulating. And now, we as artists return with art, culture, and the drive to show all of it to you.”
Open Ateliers Amsterdam Noord is an annual event in which artists open their studios to the public for a weekend. Especially in these turbulent times, artists have been inspired and have indeed created new work. Visitors will become aware of this in the studios. This year, a record number of 115 artists from Amsterdam Noord are participating, showing their work in their studios or at other surprising locations. From the NDSM wharf to Halte Zamenhofstraat, there’s art everywhere! You’ll know where to find all the studios and exhibit spaces through the digital map on the website and a well-distributed print booklet.
This year, the former DRAKA factory in the Hamerkwartier has been chosen as the location of the group exhibit for all participating artists. It’s a delightfully gritty spot and a great starting point for a visit. In the vast warehouse, you can let your thoughts roam freely and find inspiration. The Hamerkwartier will be undergoing big changes in the upcoming years, so it’s worth making the effort to come see it now. We look forward to seeing you!

Summer Exhibition Het Fotolokaal
Photographers Patricia Heuker of Hoek, Annemarie Hoogwoud, Kata Olstrom and Benny van der Plank will be exhibiting during the summer exhibition in Het Fotolokaal in Tjerkwerd from 5 June to 5 September 2021.
Patricia Heuker of Hoek
Patricia is a photographer with an interest in humanity's impact on the planet, growing up in today's society and other important issues that shape the world and the future of children.
Her 'Fragile' series consists of 3 parts: Flood, Smog and Plastic. It is about nature and the fragility of life. The photos show the impact of our behavior on our planet and therefore our children.
Annemarie Hoogwoud
Photographer from Terherne. In her work she depicts the beauty of landscapes in an unusual way. During the exhibition, work from the series 'Landscapes of the soul' and 'Songbird' can be seen. The Landscapes of the soul series shows the different experiences of the soul, the steps that lead to awareness. Coming home to yourself, in the landscape of your soul is not always easy. It is a constant challenge to look for that and to step out into the world from there. The Songbird series is inspired by the Fleetwood Mac song of the same name. When the birds start singing again, what happens? How do people actually deal with the seasons within themselves?
Kate Olstrom
Kata was born and raised in Oslo. She lives and works in Leeuwarden since May 2019. Kata makes landscape images that deviate. No classically depicted beauty through color, sharpness and the panoramic splendor of the outside world. Kata uses the landscape to depict. She refers with conscious blur to our own vulnerable inner world. One of the metaphors Kata uses in her images are trees. Despite their pride and strength, the greatest land creatures are essentially helpless. They are unable to move or otherwise direct their lives.
Benny van der Plank
The Amsterdam photographer regularly travels to Hong Kong to work on projects. In his work he focuses, among other things, on social issues in urban environments. The exhibition features work from the series 'Aftermath Hong Kong Protests', 'Dense Living in the Afterlife' and 'Hong Kong Street Portraits'. In 'Aftermath Hong Kong Protests' he photographed the consequences of the protests in Hong Kong in the autumn of 2019. The clashes between police and demonstrators then became increasingly violent. In an attempt to bring parts of the city to a halt, protesters constructed improvised roadblocks with fences and stones that could be used as projectiles. The clashes have left an open wound in everyday life in Hong Kong.
