Starred by at PAN Amsterdam: Miluska van 't Lam


This year we’ve invited Miluska van 't Lam, Harper's Bazaar editor in chief, to ‘star’ ✨ five works at the 36th edition of the PAN Amsterdam.

Miluska celebrates female artists and gallerists at the PAN Amsterdam 2023. She selected five works to shine some extra light on at this year's fair.

1. At Bildhalle Zurich + Amsterdam (stand 43) Miluska selected Ethereal by Bastiaan Woudt. The gallery is run by a female gallerist, Mirjam Cavegn and director dr. Phil. Christian’s Hoefert, whose curation Miluska trusts completely. At PAN they show work by Bastiaan Woudt who made the newest cover of Harper's Bazaar: the winter issue, highlighting Women of the Year, with singer Karsu Dönmez as cover star.

2. At EENWERK (stand 31) gallery Miluska selected Expansive Reality by Sheila Hicks. She says the PAN can be proud to have a booth dedicated to this amazing female artist. This grand old lady of textile art transformed herself at 89 into a well respected artist who is celebrated by all major museums. Tip: ask in the booth for the book on Sheila, made by another female icon: Irma Boom.

3. At Daatselaar Fine Art & Antiques (stand 40), one of her favorite female run galleries, she selected Le col de Fourrure by Jean-Pierre Cassigneul. An artist that is inspired by Kees van Dongen. So is Miluska, especially after visiting the Kees van Dongen exhibition at Singer Laren together with her daughter who studies art history.

4. At Inez Stodel Jewelry (stand 22) Miluska selected a brooch ‘Pense a moi’. This gallery is the place to find pre-loved jewelry. It is run by mother and daughter Leonore and Inez. The name of the brooch makes Miluska think of self love but also love for the other. And that is what the world today needs, more than ever. “Love is always the answer, always.”

5. At Rademakers Gallery (stand 3) Miluska selected Blue Goddess, 2023 by Yamuna Forzani. This is the first time her work is shown at the PAN Amsterdam. Yamuna’s collection is designed not to exclude any individual but to be genderful, celebrating the multiplicity of roles and identities that we embody within social structures.
