Nineteenth Edition of Renowned Art Fair

The nineteenth edition of Art Rotterdam is once again located in the iconic Van Nellefabriek from Thursday 8 February to Sunday 11 February. Art Rotterdam is the appealing alternative within the international field of art fairs for an increasing number of art lovers and attracts more visitors from home and abroad each year.

Art Rotterdam manages to increasingly stand out as a "curated fair". With the exception of the Main Section, each section bears the imprint of a young and/or renowned curator. New, this year, is the Commonities section, designed by Lorenzo Benedetti, curator of contemporary art at Kunstmuseum St.Gallen.

In "Commonities", Benedetti establishes links based on thematic and materiality between artists of various galleries present. "Open Air", intended for the presentation of large scale works on the Van Nellefabriek terrain, is curated by Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk, curator at The Office for Curating, Rotterdam.

The focus of curator Suzanne Wallinga's "Intersection", a platform for non-profit performance and installation art, is on the experiment. "Art Rotterdam Projections", curated by Martha Kirszenbaum, will dispose of a 700 m2 darkened room with a large number of videos on big, freestanding projection walls.

Patrick Constantin Haas, curator at the Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, curates the "New Art Section" for young galleries which present solos by up-and-coming talent. In the "Main Section", where some 70 national and international galleries have their stands, a space has also been reserved for dealers in post-war art and vintage photography.

For the sixth time, the "Prospects & Concepts" exhibition is located in the old distribution centre of the Van Nellefabriek. The enormous 2,500m2 space shows work by almost eighty visual artists who received a Stipendium for Emerging Artists from the Mondriaan Fund in 2016.

The NN Group Art Award is awarded during Art Rotterdam for the second time in a row. This spurring award is intended for outstanding talents, whose works can be found at the fair. The most important criteria for nomination are: a completed professional art training in the Netherlands, making high-quality work and promoting authentic and innovative craftsmanship.
