vonkel contemporary art gallery
Vonkel is a gallery for contemporary art, situated in the centre of The Hague.
We focus on contemporary painting and drawing and work together with artists who graduated from a Dutch art academy or who obtained a master degree in The Netherlands.
In our exhibition space, located in Assendelftstraat 19 in The Hague, we programme concise, specialized solo-exhibtions showing contemporary themes or imagery. We also present the works of our artists in renowned national art fairs and aim to exhibit their works in international fairs within the coming years.
Central to the gallery is our young talent programme which we started in 2009. Works of the first artists who have entered this programme are now being acquired by Dutch art collections and are presented in national art fairs. Every year we visit the art academies in the Netherlands to research patterns and changes within Dutch contemporary art. Our focus lies on (cross-overs of) painting and drawing, since we are interested in the development of traditional media within the expanding field of younger disciplines like (digital) photography, video, 3D and performances.
Vonkel is member of the Nederlandse Galerie Associatie (Dutch Gallery Association) and is registered with the Chambre of Commerce Haaglanden (registration number 54913942).
