‘Chambres des canaux: The tolerant home’ is the name of a new exhibition shown in 20 classic canal houses, and many of them are normally not open to the public. The theme of the exhibition is tolerance, a concept Amsterdam is famous for. For ages people from all corners of the world have been coming/fleeing to Amsterdam because of the freedom of speech, religion and choice that is so normal in our city.
The art works are all from world famous artists that have a strong connection with Amsterdam, a.o.: Marlene Dumas, Joep van Lieshout, Germaine Kruip, David Claerbout, Ina van Zyl and Fiona Tan.
The exhibition will be only two weeks on show: November 1 – 17, 2013
Tickets: at the Central Station or Leidseplein and online.
