About

Established in 2007 in Amsterdam, Rademakers Gallery is a dynamic fusion of a contemporary art gallery and creative agency. Specializing in showcasing artists at the intersection of art, design, fashion, and jewelry, we bring over 20 years of expertise in promoting and selling the works of predominantly female artists.

 

Engaging in both national and international fairs such as Art Rotterdam, PAD Paris, Pad London, Photo London, Volta Basel, Enter Art Fair Copenhagen, PAN Amsterdam and Design Miami. Rademakers Gallery extends its creative reach through collaborations. Notable collaborations are with Hermès, Dior, Heineken, Filling Pieces and Secrid. 

 

Our operations revolve around two key pillars: advancing the position of female artists and championing sustainability. With a commitment to breaking gender norms in the art world, we mostly represent female artists. 

 

In 2024, our thematic focus will be 'Art & Fashion,' reflecting our belief in the fluidity between artistic disciplines. Over the years, we've collaborated with established and emerging fashion designers, fostering a dialogue on contemporary fashion and its response to societal challenges.

 

Founded by art historian Pien Rademakers, the gallery embraces a multidisciplinary approach, rejecting rigid distinctions between art and design. Pien personally curates each exhibition with an open-minded, colorful, and feminine vision, emphasizing balanced and accessible programs.

 

Rademakers Gallery introduces the Only Female Artist platform, dedicated to showcasing and selling the work of female artists across various disciplines. The initiative aims to amplify the voices of women in the art world, providing them with opportunities to exhibit and sell their creations in art, fashion, design, and jewelry. The platform seeks to reshape the narrative of the art world, fostering inclusivity and equity for female artists.

 

Beyond art sales, Rademakers Gallery serves as a creative agency, offering personalized advice and discreet assistance to private clients, professionals, interior designers, and embassies. Whether acquiring a single artwork or building a unique collection, we provide comprehensive support and facilitate commissioned works to bring new artistic visions to life.

As of July 2023 Rademakers Gallery complies with the  Gallery Fair Practice Code as specified by the Nederlandse Galerie Associatie:


1. The gallery records in writing the relationship between the gallery and the artist, including agreements regarding the duration of the partnership, prices and any applicable discounts. Other matters that may be recorded in this document include: monitoring and evaluation of the agreements, both parties’ targets (e.g. in terms of international exposure), the relationship with a second gallery, agreements concerning the handling of any discounts, commissions from third parties, or the settlement of other expenses such as for transport, photography, insurance or the construction of an exhibition. Model contracts are available on the Dutch Gallery Association (NGA) website.

 

2. The artist remains the owner of their work until the full amount is paid to the gallery, with the exception of secondary trading. This also applies in the event of gallery bankruptcy.

 

3. The gallery shall transfer the full artist’s share of the selling price agreed with the customer within 60 days following the sale of the artist’s work, and provide the artist with the buyer’s name, contact details, and a copy of the invoice.

 

4. Unsold artworks in consignment with the gallery shall always be returned to the artist within a month, when requested by the artist.

 

5. The relationship between galleries may involve an element of competition, but it must always be underpinned by loyalty to the best interests of the artist, especially in situations where multiple galleries represent the same artist. If a gallery exclusively represents an artist and another gallery wishes to collaborate on an exhibition, all parties must establish written agreements outlining the terms and conditions for the exhibition to proceed (refer to the appendix for a sample contract provided by the NGA).

 

6. The gallery is expected to demonstrate expertise and professionalism, consistently upholding a high standard of professional competence.

 

7. The gallery assures the authenticity of the artworks it sells. If, however, it is determined, by an acknowledged independent party, that a work is inauthentic, the gallery will accept the return of the artwork and reimburse the customer for the amount paid.

 

8. The gallery states its objectives, program, working method, and features its roster of artists on its website.

 

9. The gallery is expected to comply with the Fair Practice Code (fairpracticecode.nl), which includes reassurance against inappropriate behaviour at the gallery and elsewhere.
