great pop up gallery in a burned down canal house

One of Amsterdam’s most famous canal houses burned down on New Years Eve 2008. Recently Gallery LaRaven opened its doors, in the ram shackled house which was only partly rebuilt. You can still smell the fire and see the blackened walls, but there are beautiful exhibitions as well. Several rooms are used, now with work of Mark Janicello and Katja Koevoet. It’s on Herengracht 132.
