Succesful A Perfect Day extended by weekend

Due to success, A Perfect Day Tekenshow has been extended and will remain open for an extra weekend. On Saturday 25 February and Sunday 26 February from 11-17 hrs there will be extra activities.

On Saturday and Sunday: drawing (free) and making buttons (€0,50) for children.

On Sunday: t-shirt workshop. For € 13,50 you get a t-shirt, can join the workshop and can see the entire exhibition. If you bring your own t-shirt you join for just € 7,50.

If you haven’t seen the exhibition yet, here is your chance to change that. Tickets are only 5 euros. The Parool called it “art without a pedestal“, and NRC gave it four stars. We look forward to seeing you at the Westergasfabriek this weekend.

A Perfect Day takes over De Volkskrant

A Perfect Day has taken over the insert of De Volkskrant

On Friday 10 February the exhibition A Perfect Day – Tekenshow will open at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. More than 60 artists and over 150 works of art will be on display until Friday 24 February. Amongst them are David Shrigley, Raymond Pettibon and Gummbah.

In today’s De Volkskrant, Dutch artists that take part in the exhibition have replaced all the photos with drawings. It is a rare take over of one of the biggest newspapers in the Netherlands, and surely worth a walk to your news stand or sigarenboer to get a copy.
