Art Rotterdam Week

Rotterdam will revolve around culture and contemporary art during Art Rotterdam Week 2019. Art lovers will have the opportunity to visit numerous art and design fairs, unique exhibitions, site fairs, open studios and pop-up shows during the event from 6 – 10 February 2019.

About the Art Rotterdam Week

With all its museums and art institutions, Rotterdam is the second art city in the Netherlands, it is logical that there was an art fair in 2000: Art Rotterdam. As a counterpart, Object Rotterdam was established in 2009. These fairs and other art institutions in Rotterdam are not competitors, but complement each other precisely. That is why it was decided in 2013 to join forces under the name Art Rotterdam Week and to immerse the city for a week in art. In addition to Art and design fair OBJECT , there are two major trade fairs: Qade Solo in the Cruise Terminal and photography manifestation Haute Photographie in Las Palmas. The four large trade fairs and museums in the Museampark are well connected by the shuttle bus.
