10 years ago Cintha van Heeswijck-Veeger initiated ARTZUID, a world-class outdoor sculpture biennale. The exhibition takes place every 2 years in the monumental Art-Deco district in Amsterdam, designed in 1917 by Hendrik P. Berlage.

ARTZUID sculpture route starts at the Museum Square in front of the Rijksmuseum and stretches for 2,5 kilometers along the Minervalaan, the Apollolaan and finally up to Station Zuid.

Over a period of 4 months, 60 sculptures of established and emerging artists form an eye-catching spectacle. The biennale is attended by the average number of visitors of 375, 000.

ARTZUID 2019 takes place from 17th May to 15th September. Dynamic sections are created for solo presentations, group exhibitions and site-specific installations.
