Paleis van Mieris is pleased to announce its participation in unlocked/reconnected, an initiative that brings together a wide range of museums, institutions and galleries, underlining the importance of art and culture and spreading solidarity in the art community.

From Monday, 1st June, the first day that museums will re-open in the Netherlands, Paleis van Mieris presents ‘It’s Only Natural’, an outdoor groupshow.

What usually takes place indoors will be out in the open, day and night. The individual contributions of the artists from the collective together form a living landscape diorama that invites you to reflect on art and nature, indoors and outdoors.

Works by Esther Brakenhoff, Marc van Dijk, Barbara Dubbeldam, Maarten Schuurman, Ovidiu Spaniol, Sander ter Steege, Vincka Struben, Steffen Vogelezang

A future of travel


In the last episode of Teotwawki, Corridor Project Space initiates an exhibition where traveling and transportation itself become part of the process.

For this exhibition, each artist presents artworks together with crates they have previously been shipped in.  Others use the crate itself as exhibition space or ship a piece of luggage filled with various objects as self-presentation. All these different forms lead to thinking of new formats of travel.

Dante Land


Dante Land is a theme park built by more than 20 artists. The attractions are based on ‘The Divine Comedy’ by the Italian poet Dante Alighieri (1265-1321). In Dante Land, you will make a journey through hell, purgatory and heaven.

The route runs through Paleis van Mieris, a partly stripped monumental building Amsterdam Zuid, near Museumplein. Take a ride on the Styx, fight demons and stare at mythical monsters of hell.

Within the set boundary of an installation a continuous game of claiming and occupying territory is played. The work researches the micropolitics of space with the shift between individual limits and communal space.

 Special events during the project: a lecture about scent in art by art historian Caro Verbeek, a video screening organised by Petros Panagiotis Orfanos, and a sound performance by Jasna Veličković during finissage.


Out Of Office #3 curated by Matthew Britton with Constant Dullaart, Danny Brian Gonzales, Shia LeBeouf, Nastja Säde Rönkkö, Luke Turner, Jonas Lund, Karina Pálosi, Nick Zhu.
