On the 30th of April, a very special new meeting place for lovers of art, design and food opened its doors in the city of Amsterdam. In a monumental building in between the streets Rokin and Nes, right in the heart of Amsterdam. The initiative of cultural entrepreneur Jessica Voorwinde combines an exhibition space for art and design and a spectacular barroom, which was designed by Lex Pott, resulting in an incredible hybrid for lovers of food and art under one roof. By collaborating with astonishing people of the creative industry Voorwinde created a playground for all art-lovers. A place where people can meet and enjoy various inspiring events and exhibitions, taste some amazing ’culture bites’, have a drink at the marmor bar or buy a design from exquisite designers. Whenever visiting Amsterdam make sure to stop by and be inspired.

We want to create a place where people can enjoy art and design combined with good food and drinks, seven days a week. And all this in a pleasant, informal atmosphere. ArtDeli will be a new way of experiencing culture.

For their opening-exhibition with center theme De Stille Kracht [the silent force] guest curators Cathelijne Broers – the managing director of De Nieuwe Kerk & Hermitage Amsterdam – and Maurice Seleky – author and partner Novel Creative Consultancy – selected an ‘intriguing collection’ of paintings, installations, sculptures and photographs from artist such as Martha Kamminga, Wouter van der Laan, Robin Leevel and Thijs Linssen among many others.

Bram Claassen, former Head of Brand Image at Viktor&Rolf, gave the finishing touch to the inspirational residence.

Eventually our mission with ArtDeli was to achieve as much visibility for talented designers and artists, whilst inspiring our audience with the beauty of art and design.

When in Amsterdam make sure to visit ArtDeli at Rokin 93!
