Felix & Foam is  the new initiative of Foam in collaboration with Frame and restaurant Foyer, in the imposing Felix Meritis building in Amsterdam. 

Until October 2014, Felix &Foam will be the place where art, culture and special events come together. The building’s seven rooms, bar and foyer will be packed with exhibitions, film screenings, installations, a restaurant, surprising shops and an in-house gallery. The programme includes presentations, workshop launches and various events. Twice a week there will be a varied evening programme with music, theatre and debates, as well as Felix &Friday every Friday. The building will be open to the public seven days a week until 30 September 2014.

Felix &Foam combines art and culture, working together with various partners, photographers and artists. Besides photography, the programme includes video, film, fashion and design, with a special emphasis on work by emerging, young talent.

Exhibition: In the exhibition The Space Between Us nine contemporary Dutch artists, all using photography and occasionally film or video, explore and exploit the meaning, value and representation of the human body.

Editions & Bookshop: Foam’s gallery, Foam Editions, is presenting a series of special limited edition prints, and the Foam bookshop is also given a prominent place in the building.

Collaborate: In collaboration with several young artists collectives, a public studio is set up where visitors can watch work in progress and where rapidly changing exhibitions and installations are made.

Video: Three-weekly programme of recent films and video works, curated by gallery holder Juliètte Jongma and Foam curator Claudia Küssel. The first item on the programme is the most recent video by Annika Kahrs, Playing to the Birds.

Stage: The former theatre auditorium will house a mixed programme featuring various partners operating on the cutting edge of different artistic disciplines, such as music, dance and theatre performances, debates and more.

Camera Obscura: A Camera Obscura has been installed in the top of the building, where workshops will also be held.
