Full description
With Micro Art Amsterdam, the Beurs van Berlage exhibits the smallest works of art in the world. The works are almost invisible to the naked eye and visitors are therefore given a magnifying glass to admire the collection.

The exhibition consists of works by the Ukrainian Mykola Syadristy and the Turkish Hasan Kale. Mykola works with precious metals and fruit pips, while Kale paints on objects from everyday life, such as a grain of rice, nail, or razor. The Micro Art Amsterdam exhibition can be visited until 31 December.

Mykola's work is recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records. Micro Art Amsterdam shows 35 works by Mykola, including the Columbus ship - made up of no fewer than 256 parts, four golden camels in the eye of a needle, and a three-dimensional portrait of Rembrandt made from a blackthorn pit. Kale has been producing micro-performances of the Night Watch by Rembrandt van Rijn for the past year and a half. He has painted this world famous militia painting on a pumpkin seed, shell, wood, and a bottle cap. He also made microscopically small portraits of the Dutch royal family. Documentary films are shown in different languages ​​in the central part of the exhibition space revealing how the artists produce their creations.
