Galerie Juliètte Jongma
Galerie Juliette Jongma opened its doors in 2004, being the first gallery for contemporary art to establish itself in the De Pijp area of Amsterdam, which has since developed into an important spot on the city’s contemporary art map. The gallery focuses on collaborations with international artists in an early stage of their careers, often through its close engagement with Amsterdam’s international residency programs, like De Ateliers and the Rijksakademie.

Torch Gallery, Gijs van Lith, Welcome To The Thunderdome, 2016, 2016

In 1984, TORCH Gallery was established by Adriaan van der Have as a stage for Dutch and international contemporary Art. Functioning as a springboard for emerging Dutch artists, TORCH was the starting point for internationally renowned artists like Anton Corbijn and Inez van Lamsweerde. It is hard to qualify what makes a typical TORCH artist. Their styles, media and artistic approaches all differ wildly, but what they do have in common is a serious commitment to their profession and a refreshing perspective on our world.

Mini Galerie
Mini Galerie grew out of a series of temporary exhibitions in the living room of gallery director Julia van der Meer’s apartment in the centre of Amsterdam. A permanent location close to the city’s gallery district was established in 2014. Mini Galerie is dedicated to exhibiting contemporary art from emerging artists who are breaking new ground by combining the idiom and codes of high culture with societal subcultures.

Dürst Britt & Mayhew
Dürst Britt & Mayhew was founded in The Hague in 2015 by curator Jaring Dürst Britt and art critic Alexander Mayhew. They chose The Hague as a homebase for the gallery, because of its flourishing climate for contemporary art and an abundance of experimental non-for-profit spaces. Dürst Britt & Mayhew is committed to helping artists from different national and artistic backgrounds to further develop their practice.
