Rotterdam Art Week

Art is everywhere, especially in Rotterdam from February 9 – 12, 2023. Art, design and architecture enthusiasts will find various fairs throughout the city, special openings of exhibitions in museums and art institutions, open-air installations, pop up shows and open workshops. With your own transport, public transport or by free lift in one of the special Rotterdam Art Week electric Minis, it is not an art to get everywhere. Art is everywhere during the Rotterdam Art Week.

Joined forces

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 Rotterdam Art Week and to immerse the city for a week in art. In addition to Art Rotterdam and design fair OBJECT, you can also visit photography manifestation Haute Photographie and The New Current. Visit for the entire program.

Eat, sleep, art fair, repeat
