PAN Amsterdam 32 Ends Successfully
29 November 2018, After a successful final weekend, PAN Amsterdam had welcomed more than 40,000 visitors to the thirty-second fair. The fair for art, antiques and design with 110 exhibitors from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Italy had already recorded good sales during the opening weekend and the trend continued throughout the week and the closing weekend.
‘Three years ago, we embarked on a new course. As a result, we now see that visitors can find PAN Amsterdam and appreciate the items on offer, which have all been vetted by our vetting committees. Sales are good across the board,’ said managing director Patrick van Maris. Chairman Roberto Payer said ‘This year the link between PAN and Amsterdam and the collaboration with photographer Erwin Olaf were the major highlights. His individual and revealing approach produced fantastic results. The wonderful images for the marketing campaign and the exhibition at PAN Amsterdam strengthened the link with the city. I’m proud of the result.’
Erwin Olaf’s Choice
Internationally renowned photographer Erwin Olaf made eight new portraits for the second edition of the exhibition at the fair. He portrayed Amsterdammers with artworks he selected as highlights. Erwin Olaf and his models opened the exhibition during PAN’s opening on Saturday 17 November. The press, visitors and exhibitors were very positive.
The growing success of PAN Podium is evident from the many visitors to the event. The overarching theme of the third edition of this platform, where art and the art market are discussed, was ‘From Collection to Museum’. Thirteen art professionals committed themselves to PAN Podium with thirty-nine programme segments. Among the speakers were eight museum directors, three chief editors, and a number of curators and experts. The programme was supported by institutions including the Rembrandt Society, Design Museum Den Bosch, Koninklijke VHOK, Hex Castle in Belgium, the Netherlands Institute for Art History (RKD) and Museum Singer Laren.
