Witte de With, center for contemporary art
- Opening hours
Center for contemporary art
Witte de With was established in 1990 as a center for contemporary art with the mission of introducing contemporary art and theory in the context of Rotterdam as well as in the Netherlands as a whole. The institution initially sought to present an alternative to the classic museum for modern art and to existing artist’s initiatives.
Over the years, Witte de With has evolved, now also commissioning and producing new works of art.
Thanks to its internationally renowned exhibitions, publications and theory programme, Witte de With became the Netherlands’ foremost window onto the international art world.
