The weekend is organized by the non-profit organization Amsterdam Art, which devotes itself all year round to promoting and strengthening this leading position Amsterdam occupies and promoting the best in contemporary art the city has to offer. This goal culminates in the Amsterdam Art Weekend, when the art world has the opportunity to engage with the richness and innovative nature of the Amsterdam creative scene.
