New Year’s Toast of AEPH at ‘FOR REAL 2017’ Art Fair Amsterdam

Texto también disponible en es_ES

Would you like to celebrate the beginning of 2016 in an elegant way, surrounded by art? This coming  Friday 20th January, between 16:00 and 20:00 hrs., the Spanish Association of Professionals in the Netherlands (AEPH) is pleased to invite its members and friends to a New Year’s toast within the magnificent setting of the 14th edition of the FOR REAL fair (formerly know as REALISME) in Amsterdam. Other several clubs will participate in this event, and special mention deserves the Spanish Flavor of this year’s edition with the MEAN Exhibition.

FOR REAL, formerly REALISME, is the only art fair in the Netherlands, and maybe even in the world, exclusively devoted to contemporary figurative and realistic art. Here,  40 national and international galleries exhibit and sell works of art by Dutch and foreign artists; by renowned artists as well as by young artists who shed new light on figurative art.

This year the fair will have a special Spanish flavor: first of all, it will be hosting an exhibition by the Museu Europeu d’Art Modern (MEAM) from Barcelona which is one of the biggest private art collections in Spain. This museum for figurative art is founded by the architect José Manuel Infiesta and is housed in the Palau Gomis in Barcelona. Mr. Infiesta is personally making a choice from the collection of paintings and sculptures for its first foreign exhibition. Second, three Spanish galleries will be participating in the fair: Galería Contrast  and Galería Miquel Alzueta from Barcelona and Galería d’art Anquin’s from Reus.



As a welcome to the event at 17:30h, we will have a few words by Erik Hermida, director of Onderneming & Kunst and organiser of the FOR REAL 2017, as well as by René Kouwenberg, director of PTA (Passenger Terminal Amsterdam).

From 18:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., we will organize guided tours of the most relevant of the fair. During these tours we will visit the MEAM exhibition.

This event provides a unique opportunity to do professional networking at the highest level, not only with members and friends of the AEPH, but also with the members of the various others clubs attending the event: De Titus Cirkel y De Caius CirkelCobra Museum Business ClubMaecenatium Atque Amicitiae (Geelvinck Hinlopen Huis)De Amsterdamsche KringHet Fundament van Amsterdam (Amsterdam Museum)Passenger Terminal AmsterdamStichting Vrienden van de Nieuwe KerkStichting KunstweekStichting Vrienden van de Hermitage Nederland and De Amstel Club
