ART Rotterdam is virtually a regular date in the international art community’s calendars. This year it’s taking place in Van Nelle Factory for the fourth time already – and Wilkhahn will be its sponsor once again. This time focus will be on young art too, which means that the youngest international galleries will have their own New Art Section. Various exhibition formats will ensure variety and appropriate presentation of the different types of art. The Van Nelle Factory’s old sales centre will be used for the Prospects & Concepts exhibition, which will feature the work of 60 Mondriaan Fonds scholarship holders. Installations and performances will take place under the Intersections banner in the factory’s old workshops, while the Projections department will show 12 videos on large screens each with its own sound shower. The Main Section is the nucleus of the show and includes 70 leading galleries in the Netherlands. L’Invité is a pop-up restaurant with a champagne and barista coffee bar which will move into the Van Nelle Factory. Wilkhahn Netherlands is also looking forward to welcoming guests into its newly designed showroom in the Van Nelle Factory.
Alongside ART Rotterdam, the OBJECT design show will also be presenting 75 designers and their innovations as well as limited editions on a historical ship in the harbour.
ART Rotterdam will take place from 9 to 12 February 2017.
Opening times are:
Thursday, 11 February, 11 am. to 7 p.m.
Friday, 12 February, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday, 13 and 14 February, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
