The Johan Deumens Gallery was originally established in 1989 as Artists Books Johan Deumens, Amsterdam, dedicated to a program of conceptual artists books. In 1995 the gallery started a long-term relationship with Edition Jacob Samuel, Santa Monica; serial works on paper by international renowned artists became a major focus.
In 2007 the gallery was renamed Johan Deumens Gallery to emphasize an artist’s context in representing works on paper, books and photography. We opened a gallery in Haarlem and from September 2010 – July 2012 we have been gallery-in-residence at the Spinnerei in Leipzig.
In 2011 the gallery moved from Haarlem to Amsterdam. Our office is located at the Gabriel Metsustraat 8, opposite the Stedelijk Museum. The gallery represents the work of both established and emerging artists, and the exquisite program of serial works, published by Edition Jacob Samuel.
In our general program we concentrate on a conceptual and research oriented artistic approach We strive for the presentation of works in different ways: through direct communication with public, private and corporate collections, gallery exhibitions, off-site projects, art fairs, and our website.
