The 33st edition of PAN Art Fair, taking place in RAI Amsterdam from November 24 until December 1, features a special exhibition highlighting the works and ideas of famous Dutch fashion designer Jan Taminiau.

It is the first time in the history of this fair for art, antiques & design that this honour has been bestowed on a couturier. In his exhibition The World of Jan Taminiau, the fashion designer – hailed for his use of traditional techniques in contemporary designs – enters into dialogue with the art on show at PAN Amsterdam.

Taminiau painted a cloth and embellished it with beads and sequins. The image he created contains trees referring to the famed Goblin and colour surfaces reminiscent of the modernism of Bauhaus. 

Since the 2016 edition, PAN Amsterdam has commissioned artists to translate their view on the art fair in pictures. The collaborators thus far are photographers Eva Roovers, Koen Hauser and Erwin Olaf. Around 40,000 art lovers visit the PAN Fair every year.

PAN Amsterdam is an annual fair for art, antiques and design, offering collectors, occasional buyers and starters on the art market a wide range of thousands of art pieces. More than 100 vendors will display the best works available on the Dutch art market. These top collections of fine art, presented in a modern setting, have been selected for their appealing mix of aesthetic beauty and quality.
