Your Own Gallery a gallery aimed for contemporary young artists is throwing their first show this Friday evening. During a period of four months nine artists will be invited for an exhibition. Artist Gijs Kast will be the first to present his work with his exhibition titled Show, a series of illustrations drawn during shows. An interview of Gijs can be found here.

From Sunday 21 until Sunday 28 March a small settlement of paper huts inhabited by four artists and their hostess, Mariëlle Videler, will take up residence in the middle of the rear space of W139. Selected from 59 hopefuls responding to an international Open Call, none of the guests have been to Amsterdam before. They will be picked up from the airport and station, blindfolded, and taken to the Warmoesstraat where, for the full 8 days of BLINDED TOURIST, they will not leave the building. Marielle Videler gives her four guests an environment largely designed and created by herself. They will get to know the city through her and the experts she has selected. During their stay, the blinded tourists will be in W139 where viewers can observe and visit them during opening hours. On Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 March they will give a presentation of their findings. We invite you to come to W139 on Sunday 28 March at 16:00 hour for a drink and to say good-bye to Davide, Henrique, Caroline and ZhouBin.
