“Art Rotterdam is ... a conglomerate of presentations and activities that have upgraded the harbour city to the country’s most prominent art city”

Jury Report AICA (International Association of Art Critics) Certificate 2016

Welcome to Art Rotterdam 2017

The 18th edition of Art Rotterdam once again immersed you for four days into the newest developments in contemporary art. Its focus on young art, its variety of the different sections, the connection with the city Rotterdam and the historic location have given Art Rotterdam its unique identity. For an increasing number of art lovers, Art Rotterdam is the attractive alternative within the international field of art fairs and attracts more visitors, both domestic and international, every year.

I hope you got inspired by what the artists offered you during last edition and that you enjoyed all there was to see and experience at and around Art Rotterdam.
