Nieuw Dakota is a contemporary art exhibition space situated on the NDSM wharf in Amsterdam. Its experimental program encompasses exhibitions, performances, tours, and educational activities designed to provoke thought among both artists and visitors, expanding their perspectives on the world. 

Since early 2023, Nieuw Dakota has introduced an artistic initiative known as 1 x 2. Within this framework, a single theme is explored in two distinct and nearly opposing ways. The present theme revolves around 'romantic love,' showcased through the contrasting exhibitions Yes, I Do and It’s Not You, It’s Me. The former delves into the positive facets of successful love relationships, while the latter narrates the other side of the story, focusing on heartbreak and the challenges it presents.


Nieuw Dakota is an exhibition space for contemporary art at the NDSM wharf in Amsterdam.The experimental program includes exhibitions, performances, tours and educational activities, with the goal of challenging both artists and visitors and broadening their perception of the world.

In 2023, a new artistic programme started at Nieuw Dakota: 1 x 2. Within this concept, one theme is visualised in two divergent, almost opposite exhibitions. The current theme is 'romantic love', with the first exhibition being Yes, I Do. This exhibition highlights one side of the coin: the celebration of successful romantic relationships.
