About

OPEN ART ROUTE is proud to present a yearly art day with 100+ artists and many extra’s in the Amsterdam Bijlmer.

The OPEN ART ROUTE is the festival of arts in the Amsterdam Bijlmer. It offers an openhearted confrontation with all possible forms of international contemporary artistic expression in and around the artistic workspaces in Amsterdam Bijlmer. Through the multifaceted nature of artistic practices, the OPEN ART ROUTE provides several perspectives on what contemporary art is, what it can be, and in which ways this is given shape by the (inter)national artists that have settled in Southeast Amsterdam.

Even though we skipped a year, the OPEN ART ROUTE will be a yearly art event with 100+ artists in Echtenstein, Florijn, Heesterveld and Kruitberg open their doors to the public. A hop on/hop off bus with onboard performances will drive by and stop at all locations where artists present their one wo/man shows and collective art programmes. The OPEN ART ROUTE also has many interesting extras on offer, which place the artists in a local and international context.

Towards the festival you can create your own OPEN ART ROUTE through the extensive artist database and the chock-full programme on this website. Throughout the rest of the year this website offers an overview of portfolios of many artists working and living in the Amsterdam Bijlmer plus reports of previous OPEN ART ROUTE editions.

Since 1993 stichting Open Ateliers Zuidoost (OAZO) has been organising the Open Atelier Route; a yearly event in which artists open up their studios to present their practice to a wide range of art lovers and professionals. Ever since, the number of art initiatives has grown. Which is why OAZO has introduced the OPEN ART ROUTE as a local framework for cooperation between all artist locations and initiatives in the Southeast of Amsterdam as of 2012.
