HCP Explores Unseen Amsterdam

SEPTEMBER 15-22, 2019

We’ll not only stroll through booths; we’ll also attend private, curator-led tours of important exhibitions, attend private studio visits with acclaimed artist, and get behind-the-scenes-tours of major, Dutch institutions.

Exciting Itinerary so far includes:

  • Two exclusive tours of Foam, a leading organisation in the field of photography worldwide. One led by Artistic Director, Marcel Feil, of the work of the iconic photographer Brassai & the other led by curator Mirjam Kooiman, of the new work of the cross-disciplinary artist Dominic Hawgood.
