Julius Caesar
I came, I saw, I met my doom
Our first ever exhibition as H’ART Museum is of Caesar’s life and times, titled ‘I came, I saw, I met my doom.’ Experience Caesar through a collection of almost 150 historical objects—all telling one of the most exciting stories in world history. Walk through his famous rise from ordinary Roman to lauded general, all the way to his infamous downfall and murder. Explore his alliance (and affair) with Cleopatra as well as their legacy. He created cultural waves felt from Shakespeare to modern-day films. As you journey through these artefacts, untangle the myths to bring you closer to the reality of Julius Caesar’s victory and rule, his highpoints, and dark sides. We want you to ultimately decide for yourself, in today’s world, who he is to you. Exhibition runs from Saturday 16 September 2023 until Monday 20 May 2024.

Outsider Art Gallery

In the Outsider Art Gallery changing exhibitions of well-known and less known outsiders from the Netherlands and abroad take place. You will find paintings, drawings, prints, ceramic statues, sculpture, collages, photos and textile art. All works are for sale, the entrance to the gallery is free.

The Outsider Art Gallery is founded in 2016 by Cordaan care organisation in cooperation with H'ART Museum and Museum het Dolhuys Haarlem.

The art in the Outsider Art Gallery is often unconventional. Most the artists have an intellectual or mental disability. They are not concerned with commercial targets and their works do not reflect current trends in art. The art comes bubbling up from within – it is in their minds and just needs to come out. Their work is fascinating, versatile and very pure. The Outsider Art Gallery offers a fully-fledged art platform for these colourful artists, not inside the walls of a care organisation, but rather in an inspiring museum environment.

Outsider Art Studios

Currently a group of 15 artists is at work in the Outsider Art Studios, located above the galleryThey are accompanied by professional artists and pedagogical employees and work on their own art: painting, drawing, print making and digital media. In the studios companies or groups of individuals can also attend art workshops led by an outsider artist.

Outsider Art Lease

The Outsider Art Lease Programme allows you to borrow outsider art works. For more information about workshops, guided tours and/or art lease please look at: www.outsiderartgalerie.nl. Entrance is free.
