Art fairs and initiatives join forces during the Art Rotterdam Week
Tuesday 20 December 2016
Rotterdam is the place to be for art lovers and professionals during the 5th edition of the Art Rotterdam Week
(8-12 Feb). Art Rotterdam
, held in the iconic Van Nelle Factory, is the main hub with over 100 international galleries representing the top of contemporary and modern art. As the International Association of Art Critics
puts it:"the conglomarate of presentations and activities have upgraded the harbour city to the country's most prominent art city". Rotterdam Festivals offers added value to the week by investing in the program, additional marketing and visibility on Rotterdam Central Station. We also arrange free transportation between the various venues.
New this year is the strong focus on photography in the other locations on Kop van Zuid and the Wilhelminapier. Haute Photographie
joins forces with the Nederlands Fotomuseum
and a few blocks down, the 2nd edition of the free Rotterdam Photofestival
makes this area a photohub for a week.
What’s more, there are futuristic exhibitions at TEC-ART
, you can hop on board of the historical ss Rotterdam ship for OBJECT Rotterdam
, visit Rotterdam Contemporary
at their new location (the World Trade Centre) or go to one of the many pop-up shows or special openings in museums.
