Going back to normal
As the lockdown measures in The Netherlands liberalize rapidly, life is soon going back to ‘normal’. This means for us tribal enthusiasts that we will be able to visit galleries, fairs and exhibitions again in our own countries and abroad. We can again enjoy watching and touching objects as we used to do. Admiring rare objects in musea and wandering over specialized fairs and meeting like minded people. And for those visiting Amsterdam; Tribal Design has its doors put wide open and looks forward to your visit to see our objects in real life. Whenever you want, as we are open all summer!
Besides that, Tribal Design is also planning interesting thematic exhibitions through the rest of the year. Data and subjects will be announced soon. In the meantime we have already placed over fourty new items on our website. So check this website regularly for the most actual information on our exhibitions and the latest acquisitions.
Tribal Art Fair Amsterdam, October 2021
Although the two online fairs have been very succesful, many tribal enthusiasts look forward to a ‘life’ version as they have known for many years. Let’s face it, no website can compare with the bustling atmosphere of people being together sharing the same passion: finding tribal arts. The hunting and browsing, discussing objects with soulmates while enjoying a glass of wine. Touching, feeling and sniffing a prey, turning it around and the glorious feeling after the sale has been concluded sucessfully. That is what we all look forward to. So, lets keep our fingers crossed that the figures allows us to meet again in ‘de Duif’ in Amsterdam on 28 till 31 October 2021!
Looking back on the spring Tribal Art Fair Amsterdam
A place in the spring edition of the Tribal Art Fair Amsterdam was in great demand by art dealers worldwide. So this time thirty particpants joined the second edition of the online version of this popular fair. Among them Kapil Jariwala Gallery and david Malik Gallery from London and Arte Primitivo from Barcelona. At the moment of going ‘life’, over 3.000 individual visitors jumped directly on the 1.500 objects on offer. In total 7.000 tribal art enthusiasts have visited the website and many pieces have changed from owner.
Tribal Design posted over fifty objects of which several pieces have been sold to collectors from all around the globe. A vast amount of people have also watched the interesting lectures by digital platform. Three of the lectures can still be seen on the site of the Tribal Art Fair (www.tribalartfair.nl, click on ‘program’).
