Founded in 2004, the Galerie Juliètte Jongma has developed a strong conceptual backbone and its program reflects the gallery’s continuous interest in both visual and conceptual contemporary art. The gallery represents both Dutch and international artists.

At Unseen, Galerie Juliètte Jongma will represent Dutch landscape photographer Misha de Ridder (1971). In 2003, work of Misha de Ridder was shown in the exhibition Wildnerness at the photography museum Foam. Since then, his work has been exhibited at the Museum of the City of New York in 2009 as part of the exhibition, Dutch Seen, New York Rediscovered, and in the solo-exhibition Solstice at Foam in 2011. Misha de Ridder also recently made an appearance in a new TV series about photography called In Sight: collecting photographs. The TV series aired on the Dutch broadcasting company AVRO's weekly program, Kunstuur.

On display until 19 May is the exhibition The Humdrum of Dutch artistArjan van Helmond (1971). In this solo exhibition, the artist "focuses on the banality of our daily environment and tries to capsule it in all its stillness."

Galerie Juliètte Jongma is located on the Gerard Doustraat 128A in Amsterdam, and is open Wednesday to Saturday from 1-6pm.
