The Stedelijk Museum is one of the most important collections of modern and contemporary art in the world. It is often overshadowed by more famous international museums like the Tate Modern in London and MOMA in New York. Join art historian Sabry Amroussi in Amsterdam for an insider’s look at this unsung hero of the contemporary art world.

First, we will discuss the history of this seminal museum and its fantastic collection of masterpieces. The Stedelijk holdings are deep and broad: from Russian avant-garde artist Kazimir Malevich to Americans Barnett Newman, Robert Rauschenberg, and Edward Kienholz, the masterpieces are too numerous to list. Together we will look at the highlights of this groundbreaking institution, discuss several masterworks, and explain their place in the collection. Sabry Amroussi, a long time collaborator with the Stedelijk, will share his extensive knowledge of and profound love for this collection.

Led by an expert on art history, Sabry Amroussi, this interactive seminar will explore Amsterdam’s premier contemporary and modern art museum from an insider’s perspective. Designed to inform curiosity and future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding of this vast collection and its importance to the global contemporary art scene.

Sabry Amroussi is an art historian and writer living and working in Amsterdam. He specializes in the art of the Dutch Golden Age, mainly in the works of Rembrandt and his school, and also has a keen interest in the Jewish history of Amsterdam. He lectures and teaches on both subjects, and gives art historical tours all across Europe. As a true omnivore when it comes to art, culture, and even cuisine, he has worked with and for major museums and collectors, such as the LACMA, Rijksmuseum, van Gogh Museum and the P de Boer collection on Amsterdam. As a guide for Context, he is eager to share this knowledge in real life, always with a big scoop of humor, ofter intermingling art with social life, cuisine, and history.
