Steinbeisser is a new temporary modern art space in Amsterdam that stages various exhibitions, performances and experiments, bringing together a diverse range of artistic expressions, as well as selling a unique selection of contemporary jewellery, design and fashion garments to the public. The project was created in cooperation with the Cultural Embassay of Lloyd Hotel which stages topical cultural events for the Hotel’s guests and visitors, primarily based on their personal luggage or what is going on in town at the time.
The upcoming programme for Steinbeisser this year is as follows:
1 October – 4 November: The exhibition ‘Sieraadenkoorts‘ with Dinie Besems, Leonor Hipólito, Gisbert Stach and Fabrizio Tridenti which aims to showcase the various perspectives relating to the field of contemporary jewellery. To project contemporary jewellery as an artistic and cultural contact point, settled at the crossroads of other disciplines such as installation art, photography, sculpture and video art.
5 November – 2 December: The exhibition ‘10 Years Retrospective of Shoemaker Kei Kagami’ with Kei Kagami which displays a wide-range of shoe creations displaying a unique personal and visual understanding of the experimental and individualistic artist and maker Kei Kagami.
3 December – 31 December: The exhibition of ‘Improvisation‘ with A5, David Zambrano and Mat Voorter. The experimental contemporary jewellery group A5 together with contemporary dance artists Mat Voorter and David Zambrano will show in a live performance on the 3 of December how improvisation may bridge two art forms and relate creative interaction to the instant of a moment.
