Art Rotterdam will take place in the spring of this year from 19 to 22 May in the Van Nellefabriek in Rotterdam. Moving from the familiar date at the beginning of February is necessary now that the art fair cannot take place under the new Corona measures.

Prospects, Mondriaan Funds shows talent moves to new date

The Prospects exhibition, a permanent part of Art Rotterdam and organized by the Mondriaan Fund, is also moving to the new date. This year, Prospects shows no fewer than 89 young artists who are making a start in the art world. Due to the large number of artists, Prospects will occupy an extra space in the building opposite the entrance to the fair this year.

Fons Hof, Director of Art Rotterdam: “After we had to move to summer last year due to the Corona situation, we are now moving to spring. It is good to notice that all participants in the fair, including the NN Art Award as well as the participants in Rotterdam Art Week, are moving to the new date."

Rotterdam Art Week; the festival for art, design and architecture lovers will therefore take place in the spring, during Art Rotterdam. With various other fairs, special openings, exhibitions in museums and art institutions, pop-up exhibitions and Open Ateliers, each of which strengthens and enlivens the art climate in the city.

As with previous editions, Art Rotterdam 2022 will take place in the Van Nelle Fabriek in Rotterdam. After year off, the event is back at its usual time in early February. Art lovers and professionals from home and abroad are welcome, from Thursday 10 to Sunday 13 February.
