Amsterdam Sculpture Biennial ARTZUID

Willem Harbers at ArtZuid


ARTZUID 2023 will take place from 20 May – 24 September. Jasper Krabbé is the curator of the 8th edition of ARTZUID. Fifty sculptures by internationally renowned artists and Dutch talent are exhibited on Apollolaan and Minervalaan in architect Berlage’s Plan-Zuid. The route map and catalogue are available at the ARTZUID Information Pavilion t.o. Minervalaan 1. Entry tours are at 1pm on weekends. ARTZUID is accessible free of charge.


Every edition, a curator is commissioned to make the sculpture selection based on the exhibition concept. In the past, renowned curators have put together ARTZUID. Among them: Rudi Fuchs, Henk van Os, Jan Cremer, Michiel Romeyn & Roberto Meyer, Jhim Lamoree, Maarten Bertheux and Ralph Keuning.

According to Rudi Fuchs, ARTZUID is unique in the world. He knows of no other biennial that focuses exclusively on outdoor sculpture. The special thing about an exhibition in a public space is that everyone can enjoy it.

On Sunday August 20 I will be giving an Artist Talk from 15.00 until 16.00. It will take place at the ArtZuid Information Pavilion, on Minervallaan 1. The talk is presented to a maximum of 25 people.

The talk is centred around my career path as an artist, the development of my oeuvre and especially the creative process behind the sculpture that is exhibited in ARTZUID this year. I will talk about my different inspirations, how I came about them, and how I deal with them in my work. And of course all questions are welcome.
