Art Rotterdam Week
Art Rotterdam Week will present its 24th edition in 2023. Over 25.000 art lovers and collectors can enjoy a mix of participating galleries and artists presenting the latest developments in visual art in a variety of exhibition concepts. Almost 50 percent of the participants are international. Represented are Belgium, Germany and the UK, as well as other countries.
The event typically occurs in February and coincides with other art events like Object and Haute Photographie and it's a great time for art-lovers of all kinds to spend time in 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 and 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.
So many forms of art
Art Rotterdam consists of various sections located in the old workspaces 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.
