Art Rotterdam keeps developing itself as a place where the latest developments in visual arts can be followed. The Main Section, where some 75 national and international galleries display work of upcoming and more established artists, continues to be the heart of the fair. The other sections will be structured by a young or renowned curator.

This year, we’ve said farewell to the old workshops on the grounds – Intersections’ performances and installations are now presented in a new, exiting set up in a new part of the fair. The new section Commonities, in which the renowned exhibition maker Lorenzo Benedetti brings artists together, can also be found in this part. citizenM Cinema will also have a prominent place in the extension where Hans den Hartog Jager will once again explain his favourite works at the fair.

Art Rotterdam is once again the pivot of the Art Rotterdam Week this year. The entire city is brimming with exhibitions, pop-up shows, openings and art and design fairs. The free Art Rotterdam Week shuttle bus takes will take you to the highlights of this programme.

I wish you lots of fun and inspiration during this week.

Silent Room at Kruisplein

A long matt-black building offers an immersive experience of silence and peace. IFFR and Art Rotterdam present the Silent Room by Simon Heijdens. Silent Room is a soundproofed space, in which visitors spend a few moments walking up and down the walkway and experience silence. Originally commissioned by SXSW in Austin, Silent Room’s intention is to provide "a black hole within a festival" in which one can pause, rest, self-reflect and snap into introversion. Read more...
