The Tribal Art fair Amsterdam

For months we kept our fingers crossed last year. Will the popular Tribal Art Fair in the charming old church ‘De Duif’ finally get on this time? The answer was yes! Many collectors, art dealers and other tribal art enthusiasts turned up at the opening to enjoy the bustling atmosphere of people meeting again after a long period, discussing objects with soulmates while enjoying a glass of wine. Many objects changed from owner during the four well visited days. Some new participants like Xquisart from Ghent and Christophe Rolley from Paris joined the party. We look forward meeting you all again on the next Tribal Art Fair, which will take place from 27 till 30 October 2022.


New Exhibition: Crossing Borders, tribal art meets modern art

Strolling from gallery to gallery, enjoying all sorts of arts; from ancient glass and brilliant jewellery to contemporary paintings and impressive tribal art: that is the Amsterdam Art & Antiques Weekend. Starting in the art district of Amsterdam on 8 April and running till 10 April, many galleries will show thematic exhibitions. Tribal Design will open the exhibition ‘Crossing Borders’, combining the latest tribal acquisitions with modern art of Dutch origin. Works from artists like Willem Hussem and Jaap Hillenius can be considered close to art from another world. Come and see for yourself that great art deletes geographical and cultural borders.
Crossing Borders: tribal art meets modern art, 8 April till 22 May 2022


Tribal Art Fair online 2022 in April

As it takes more than a half year till the next Tribal Art Fair Amsterdam opens its doors in the Duif, the organisation has planned an online fair in April this year. Many of the participating galleries also took part in the life fair last October, which guarantees the excellent quality of the offered objects. The online fair starts on Thursday 21 April at 15.00 pm till Monday 25 April at 10.00 pm. (Local Amsterdam time)


Tribal Design in 2022

Tribal Design will have some interesting thematic exhibitions during the year. In the gallery itself and on line. In the meantime we have already placed over fourty new items on our website. So, keep an eye on this website, not to miss any of these interesting exhibitions and our latest acquisitions.


The Humboldt Forum opens in Berlin

Objects from Oceania, Africa and the Americas, a Japanese teahouse and sounds from around the world: the exhibitions in the new Humboldt Forum offer an eclectic view into the past and present cultures around the globe. Around 20,000 archaeological, ethnological and art-historical exhibits offer multiple perspectives on universal themes of humanity. The first exhibition areas opened to visitors in September last year. The museum will be fully open to the public from summer 2022. Worth a visit! www.humboldtforum.org.
