This week, Rotterdam transforms into the Valhalla for art, design and architecture lovers. Throughout the week, the city bustles with special openings, exhibitions in museums and art institutions, lectures, guided tours, debates, pop-up shows and various fairs.
Art Rotterdam – hub of the Art Rotterdam Week – celebrates its 20-year anniversary. For this jubilee edition, the fair has sharpened its varied model focused on young art and has put collaboration centre-stage. In a more intimate atmosphere, there is more focus on connection between national and international galleries. For four days, the Van Nelle factory forms the backdrop for the latest developments in the visual arts.
A new feature is the presentation of Now/Forever, curated by Hester Alberdingk Thijm, director of the AkzoNobel Art Foundation. The New Art Section also has a new, tailor-made architecture and has been curated by Tiago de Abreu Pinto. Would you like to start preparing in advance for the fair? You can, with the online Art Rotterdam catalogue at GALLERYVIEWER.COM, online from January 18th. Starting this year, more clarification has also been brought to the fair itself, in the form of information signs for works of art in each stand. The Art Rotterdam Week shuttle buses are at the entrance to the exhibition; these will bring you to the various highlights in the Museumpark, the Vierhavens area and the Kop van Zuid for free. I wish you a great deal of pleasure and inspiration.
Fons Hof Director, Art Rotterdam
