Art Rotterdam

The main fair, Art Rotterdam, has been lauded as being amongst the best winter and art fairs. Its focus on young and varied creations offers a unique insight into the latest developments in the international art world. It will be taking place from February 8 to 12, in Rotterdam.

Around 75 renowned international galleries revel on this platform by showing off grand unique exhibitions, projections, performances, immersive works and other innovative shows and creations. Art Rotterdam will take place at the large premises of the Van Nelle Factory. 

The former food, coffee and tobacco processing factory, built between 1925 and 1931, is one of UNESCO's World Heritage Monuments. The Van Nelle Factory is an example of the International Style of modern architecture, comparable to the famous Bauhaus school, based on Russian constructivism.

Art Rotterdam consists of various sections located in the old work spaces of the factory, like the Main Section, Communities, the New Art Section and Projections and Intersections.

Each focuses on its own theme, such as future talent, non-profit spaces and artist’s initiatives.
