De Hallen Haarlem is a museum for modern and contemporary art in Haarlem. Three times a year the museum De Hallen organises an exhibition cluster about current developments in visual arts. This makes the museum a platform for both national– and international artists, with an emphasis on photography and video art. The yearly exhibition Summer Series explores themes and people from the history of modern art (c. 1850 – present) and aims at a broad audience.
The main collection has around 10.000 works, which spans about three time periods: pre– and post war modern art and contemporary art. The face of the collection of modern art is partially determined by local artists such as Jacobus van Looy and Kees Verwey, but also includes artists like Jan Toorop, Piet Mondriaan as well as the CoBrA movement. The collection also has an international character, which places Dutch contemporary art in an international context. Photography and moving imagery are at the vanguard, with work from among others Nan Goldin and Renzo Martens.
