MAPA Fine Art & Clifford Chance Amsterdam proudly present the Arcus Pride Art AMsterdam Exhibition 2022. A collection of diverse artworks in different mediums by a group of distinguished and emerging LGBT+ artists based in the Netherlands. The exhibition will run throughout June at Clifford Chance’s beautiful Amsterdam office, to mark Pride Month.
Artists have often been among the most marginalised people in society, and this goes especially for those belonging to the queer community. Their work often serves as a way to express their identities or cope with the injustices they face and have faced.
The artworks in this exhibition have been curated carefully to represent a wide range of different artists and art forms, and the majority have been created by the artists especially for this show in the past few months. The contrast in colour and style of the artworks creates a sense of unity in diversity. With this exhibition, our aim is not only to showcase and celebrate the incredible talent of these six artists, but also to encourage everyone to embrace their full and true selves, and show solidarity in an environment where it is not always easy to be open and out. If the past few years have reminded us of anything, it might just be the power of community.
