With your own transport, public transport or by free lift in one of the special Rotterdam Art Week electric CUPRA’s, it is not an art to get everywhere. Visit rotterdamartweek.com for the entire program.

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.
