Vegas Gallery (London) started as a project space sponsored by MINIVEGAS. Over the course of recent years, that London project space has developed into a professional representing gallery. However, 2010 sees MINIVEGAS getting back to the core of why it all started in the first place with: back to ‘art for art’s sake’ and providing platforms for the presentation of contemporary art not directly linked to the commercial aspects of the art world.
In 2009, MINIVEGAS relocated its head office to Amsterdam after a period of frenetic activity in London and Los Angeles. 2010 will see MINIVEGAS reinvigorate its commitment to supporting contemporary visual arts with a series of initiatives facilitated by its own resources and location/s.
The first of these is ‘PEEP SHOW’, commencing in Spring 2010, making use of the company’s HQ on Amsterdam’s Keizersgracht. With the support of MINIVEGAS and business partners BAKED BEANS, a series of projects will take place on the ground level of the building with 24-hour visibility to the passing public. Intentionally referencing Amsterdam’s particular reputation and current political debate , the ‘PEEP SHOW’ projects will play with the expectations of what can be seen through Amsterdam’s windows after dark.
