LIMA summer break
While summer is in full swing in Amsterdam, we are heading towards the beach, just like in Rafael Montañez Ortiz' 'Beach Umbrella' from 1985.
LIMA will have a short summer break from Monday July 29 until August 11. During this period the office will be closed.
LIMA wishes you a wonderful summer!

Digital Canon?! Launch
On Friday, March 22, LIMA launched the Dutch canon of digital art. The presentation, by Sanneke Huisman and Jan Robert Leegte, took place in front of an international audience during the annual Transformation Digital Art symposium.
