Art Rotterdam 2016

Welcome at Art Rotterdam

The fair to discover up-and-coming talent

Art Rotterdam has evolved into the most important place to discover young art. This seventeenth edition again brings you the latest developments in visual art in a variety of exhibition concepts. You’ll experience the rich diversity in contemporary art production from different points of view; video art at Projections, installations and performances at Intersections, the latest generation of Dutch artists in Prospects & Concepts and young galleries with solo presentations at the New Art Section. With the abundance of young art and the well-balanced mix of commercial and non-commercial presentations Art Rotterdam distinguish itself from its foreign competitors that much too often have developed into art fairs for millionaires. Art Rotterdam is an art fair for connoisseurs and all art lovers alike and attracts international attention in the busy schedule of art fairs. 

This year we would like to assist you in finding your own personal way to the art that inspires you the most. We have made an effort to provide extra information on and around the fair so you have a clear view of what’s on show. For instance, the Dutch art critic Hans den Hartog Jager will illustrate his personal highlights of the fair in a film. This film is on show at Intersections and is the ideal starting point for your visit to the fair. Reflections is the name of a three-day debate-programme initiated by West The Hague, Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art and the magazine for contemporary art Metropolis M.  

To inform you digitally of what’s on show at Art Rotterdam we have teamed up exclusively with the digital art platform A week before the fair starts you can browse through the website and see what will be presented by the galleries as well as background information of various artists. 

The vibrant city of Rotterdam once again offers beautiful museum exhibitions, site fairs, open studios and pop-up shows. Free shuttle buses operate between the Van Nellefabriek, AVL-Mundo,  the Museum district and the Wilhelminapier so you can experience the best Rotterdam has to offer culturally. At this website and at the website you can read all about it. 

It is with much pleasure that I welcome you in Rotterdam!
