Throughout the month of July, artists will be provided with a means to create a new portfolio

Salwa Foundation, Selwyn Senatori and 5&33 Gallery at the art’otel amsterdam have joined forces to organise an art event for international artists, newcomers currently living in Europe.

 

Throughout the month of July, artists will be provided with a means to create a new portfolio. A means to consolidate their status as an artist under unfamiliar circumstances and establish themselves locally: an opportunity to embrace fresh perspectives for all involved.

 

The event consists of multiple workshops as well as support from famous (Dutch) artists like Selwyn Senatori, culminating into a group exhibition where artworks will be for sale.

 

A carefully handpicked selection of fifteen professional artists will be invited to exhibit at 5&33 Gallery for 2 weeks, from June 27 until July 10. Among them are Fadi alHamwi, Sulafa Hijazi and Yara Said.

 

“I’m very impressed by the high quality of work! It doesn’t get more contemporary than this” – Selwyn Senatori

 

In a departure from the norm, 5&33 Gallery will donate their share of the commission to Movement on the Ground, a foundation responding to the humanitarian crisis that has forced people to abandon their homes.

 

This event intends to provide an inclusive platform for the participants and for their work. Giving them greater exposure as professional working artists, accommodating them on their individual creative journey.
