Exhibition: The Silence of Tired Tongues
11-15 May, 12:00-18:00 | Framer Framed
Free Entrance & Audio tours
The Silence of Tired Tongues, curated by Raphael Fonseca, presents the works of thirteen emerging artists born in Brazil. The artworks in the group exhibition bring together a sense of ‘saudade’, which can be translated as a mixture of melancholy and longing. Do not miss your chance to visit the exhibition during Amsterdam Art Week. Free audio tours are available for visitors. No registration is needed. You can read more about the exhibition here.
Breitner Academie: Oost Tour
14 May, 14:00-16:00 | Starting at Framer Framed
Transportation: On foot
Get ready for a thought-provoking tour of the East District. Isabelle Britto, assistant researcher at The Black Archives and freelance researcher in the field of Black history, takes you on a tour. Britto knows Amsterdam Oost not only as a neighbourhood with a long colonial history, as visible in the street names of the Plantagebuurt and the Indische buurt, but also as a neighbourhood where new cultural voices like those of The Black Archives can be found. Starting at 14:00 at Framer Framed, the two-hour long itinerary includes guided tours at Framer Framed, P/////AKT, Tilde and The Black Archives.
This tour is created by Floor de Bruin & Julia van der Voort, 3rd-year students of the Breitner Academie. Register to join the tour here.

15 May, 15:00-17:00 | Framer Framed
Free Entrance and in English
On 15 May, Framer Framed will host the launch of International Friendship: The Gifts from Africa, an anthology focused on the documentary-filmmaking practice of CHE Onejoon and the artist’s research into the statues, monuments, and buildings built by North Korea in Africa from the 1970s to the present.

11-13 May, 10:00-18:00 & 14-15 May, 12:00-18:00 | Capital C (Weesperplein 4B, Amsterdam)
In honour of the 10th anniversary, Amsterdam Art is organising the exhibition, It’s Your Birthday. The artworks made available by the participating galleries and residencies represent different phases of a party: from the preparations to the afterparty and the subsequent hangover. This exhibition, taking place on 11-15 May in the Amsterdam Art Gallery at Capital C, is an opportunity for visitors to purchase artworks from participating institutions of Amsterdam Art Week. Framer Framed is representing special artworks by artist Stephen Tayo, whose work featured in the project A Funeral for Street Culture (2021).
