Route 1: Centre Noord/Oost
Unique exhibitions, loads of photography and young talent at The New Current and newcomers like HIM and GAEA Studio.
Het Industriegebouw Modern (HIM)
Het Industriegebouw (HIG) ‘company collection’ is impressive and was assembled by owners Luuk and Esther Schotsman. With names like Robert Zandvliet, Sam Drukker, Harry Markusse, Sabine Marcelis, Iwan Smit, Jan van der Ploeg, Ramsy Nasr and Maarten Baas, it is also a collection that more and more people are keen to see, said Luuk. “The tours we organised were full in no time.” This is how the idea for HIM was born: Het Industriegebouw Modern, a monument for art and design. See the (literally) permanent collection of murals for yourself.
Exhibition ‘Dear Future’ bij GÆA Studio in De Achtertuin
GÆA Studio is a Rotterdam-based photo studio, event and exhibition space in De Achtertuin on Kralingse Oostzeedijk, opened by photographer Zahra Reijs. She struggled with doing commissioned work and opened her own studio for creative productions, creating the space for her project and photo book Dear Future. Zahra: “I portray contemporary young people who dare to be themselves and see in them the generation of change.” A preview of her project can be seen during RAW.
