Mini Galerie is dedicated to exhibiting contemporary art from emerging artists who are breaking new ground by combining the idiom and codes of high culture with societal subcultures. Not bound by convention or definitions, the gallery presents innovative artists working in a broad variety of mediums whose works are largely characterised by a strong graphic and abstract visual language. With a fresh project-based approach, the objective of the gallery is to challenge the perceptions of art rooted in street culture and push it into new mediums and territories.
Mini Galerie grew out of a series of temporary exhibitions in the living room of gallery director Julia van der Meer’s apartment in the centre of Amsterdam. A permanent location close to the city’s gallery district was established in 2014.
Julia van der Meer (1989) holds a degree in Cultural Studies and Art History from the University of Amsterdam. Since founding Mini Galerie she has been committed to exploring the boundaries of contemporary art and its accessibility to a wider audience.

Rent our space
Mini Galerie prizes its prime location in the buzzing and up-and-coming Oud-West neighbourhood; just a few minutes away from the heart of Amsterdam. With the theatre square of Leidseplein, and the prestigious Rijkmuseum and Stedelijk just round the corner, the Kinkerstraat is a cultural portal, welcoming a multitude of people with a bounty of different interests. For that reason, we would like to share our space with friends and partners, and invite them to collaborate with us on new, exciting projects.
Our philosophy is that we want to provide something for everyone, and so we are looking for people interested in using our space for a series of different functions. Whether it be a private dinner, business meeting, product launch, or photo shoot, we believe that Mini Galerie would be perfect for each of these functions. The gallery’s minimalist white cube style provides a neutral yet stimulating atmosphere, encouraging a steady flow of creative energy.
We have a network of creatives who would be happy to help you make the most out of your event, as well as catering services that can be arranged to your taste.
