About Galerie De Pieter
Galerie De Pieter is currently located in the premises of the old Breestraat Post office (Breestraat 46) and traces of this, such as a huge vault have been retained inside the gallery. The space includes numerous small rooms. For this show artists have been invited to make site specific installations in these.

“Galerie De Pieter” itself is a collective of Leiden artists who started organizing exhibitions, aimed mainly as a venue for contemporary art practice in Leiden in August 2009. In April 2010 they began curating exhibitions at Breestraat 46 when this building became empty. It is currently the largest contemporary art gallery space in the city of Leiden but the future of this is uncertain because the building has been sold by the city council to a private investor. The exhibitions vary dramatically in style and content. An overview of their exhibitions is here >> exposities.   Their homepage contains information about the current show.

Leiden based New Zealand artist, Sonja van Kerkhoff is curating the “Film and Art” for the first time for Galerie De Pieter, with one of the “de Pieter” artists, Michel Siebes.
