Closed for nearly a decade, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam is set to reopen to the public this fall, on Sept. 23, with a grand exhibition of its permanent collection.

The museum, which focuses on modern and contemporary art, has converted a great deal of space in its original 1895 building into new galleries, and added a smooth, white oblong building designed by Mels Crouwel for temporary exhibitions that has been nicknamed “the bathtub.” One of the first new exhibitions there, “Beyond Imagination,” will feature new projects and commissioned works by 20 artists who are active in the Netherlands. A Mike Kelley retrospective is scheduled to open on Dec. 14.
