Commonities

this first year, the new section of Art Rotterdam

This first year, the new section of Art Rotterdam Commonities will be curated by Lorenzo Benedetti, Curator Contemporary Art at Kunstmuseum St. Gallen. Benedetti will connect galleries based on theme and materiality in this section. To this purpose, the section has an open structure which literally connects the stands together.

“Artistic praxis today is developing more connections throughout analysing and using different techniques and media. It is therefore extra interesting to find the second layer and to see what artists have in common”.
Lorenzo Benedetti, curator Commonities
