Galerie de Witte Voet: 1975 – 2017

Owner and manager Annemie Boissevain was presented with the Van Achterberghprijs this year. To commemorate this achievement, an exhibition will be held at the Cermics Museum Princessehof, from 8th December 2018 to 27th October 2019, with a prime selection of works from the now-closed gallery.

In 1975, Annemie Boissevain opened her gallery in an exhibition space on the Brouwersgracht in Amsterdam. In the following decades, the gallery became specialised in sculptural ceramics, to great acclaim. Boissevains dared to go a different direction to tradition, making her and her gallery a firm favourite of artists.

Owner and manager Annemie Boissevain was presented with the Van Achterberghprijs this year. To commemorate this achievement, an exhibition will be held at the Cermics Museum Princessehof, from 8th December 2018 to 27th October 2019, with a prime selection of works from the now-closed gallery.

In 1975, Annemie Boissevain opened her gallery in an exhibition space on the Brouwersgracht in Amsterdam. In the following decades, the gallery became specialised in sculptural ceramics, to great acclaim. Boissevains dared to go a different direction to tradition, making her and her gallery a firm favourite of artists.

The Van Achterberghprijs is awarded every two years to a person who has made significant contributions to the field of ceramic art in the Netherlands. It is named in memory for the ceramics collector and theorist JWN van Achterbergh. Every candidate for the prize is vetted by a jury, who gave unanimous support for giving the owner of Galerie De Witte Voet the prize, after her gallery closed its doors after more than 40 years of service. A large amount of the works on display at the Princessehof were secured for the museum via the De Witte Voet. Artists came from both within the Netherlands and internationally to show their experimental works. Anne-Marie van Sprang has made a special instillation piece just for this new exhibition.

Other artists featured include Satoru Hoshino, Maarten Heijkamp, Pablo Ponce; Nick Renshaw, Piet Stockmans and Irene Vonck.
