The First Art Fair is a sparkling contemporary art fair at the Passenger Terminal near the Amsterdam IJ river. During this fair you can admire paintings, sculptures, glass, photography and jewelry from hundreds of renowned and young artists, introduced by one of the 30 participating galleries that all focus on contemporary art. If you want to know more about some of the artists or their art you can participate in one of the fair’s art talks where they dive into the background of their contemporary art.
