Art The Hague; Fokker Terminal, The Hague

Art The Hague, The Hague’s own art fair was opened yesterday (2 October) evening and is open next few days and over the weekend.

Art The Hague is quite a small fair – which is fine – and it calls itself quirky (eigenzinnig).

However, apart from the presentation of the POPinnART collective there is very little quirkiness.

Of course this fair is a good platform for Hague galleries, and they have very attractive presentations,

but apart from that there are only very few surprises.

The overall artistic atmosphere is quite unexciting, even dull, in spite of some very fine presentations.

May be next year will be more inspiring.
