Art Release is a platform where artists from different disciplines have the opportunity to present their new work to a wider audience. An artist is continuously searching, reflecting and finding creative ways to communicate with an audience. Art Release hopes to support this by giving talented artists the opportunity to present themselves through an organized event or a temporary exposition. From visual arts to performing arts, Art Release is here to represent artists of all sorts. Our ambition is to create a space where artists and audience come together and new collaborations can arise. Also, Art Release aims to familiarize the public with art forms and artists they are usually not exposed to.

Since 2014 Art Release organized multiple editions in Amsterdam where different disciplines of art come together at the same moment. Think about photography, illustration, graphic design, theatre, dance, lecture, music and more. Amongst our venues were De Salon at De Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam, Restaurant Instock, Amsterdam Roest and the Gallery Looiersgracht 60.

In 2016 we organized a two monthly festival during February and March in Arnhem. Art Release provided a platform in Arnhem to more than 40 artists/ initiatives consisting different disciplines, presenting their work at public spaces as well as organized events.

We are proud to say that in total Art Release  gave a platform to already more than 100 artists of all kind!
