The Uitmarkt

Cultural Institutions Museumplein together at the Uitmarkt

The traditional Uitmarkt, the official launch of the new cultural season, was held from Friday 29 to Sunday 31 August. For the second time in succession, the four major cultural institutions on the Museumplein opted for a joint presentation of their programmes. Through their joint presentation, they emphasised the cultural richness on the Museumplein. The activities offered by the Van Gogh Museum were eagerly taken up.

Hard Hat tours
There were many different activities relating to the Van Gogh Museum during the Uitmarkt. Curators Fleur Roos Rosa de Carvalho and Maite van Dijk enthusiastically showed how the Van Gogh Museum was to present Van Gogh’s development as an artist in the spectacular new setting for the permanent collection, which opened on 28 November. The public could register for this presentation at the stand. Many Uitmarkt visitors also followed a ‘Story-in-the-hall’’ in the Van Gogh Museum. There was also considerable interest in the unique Hard Hat Tours of the construction site of the museum’s new entrance building offered during the Uitmarkt to participants in the BankGiro Lottery.
