Since its first show in October '99, the gallery has focused on new tendencies in contemporary art, concentrating on performative art, socially related art, installations and works in progress. The gallery creates a platform for young international artists and mid-career artists to perform, generating shows with high standards on an international level within an international context. The aim of the gallery is to look for future tendencies by putting the new in comparison with the recent past and experimenting to develop new standards. Dolores is the project-space of the Ellen de Bruijne Projects gallery in Amsterdam. Dolores was concieved by Falke Pisano, Ellen de Bruijne, Joris Lindhout, Karin Hasselberg and Dorothé Orczyk.
