I am passionate about art – as maker, collector and creator of special art-tours.
For me the Rotterdam Galleries Foundation’s quarterly foldable printed art-agenda was essential. The publication stopped when the foundation was dissolved in 2012.
There are many websites where you can find what’s going on in Rotterdam artwise, but an up-to-date overview was lacking. This is exactly the reason why an artist created the ArtIndexRotterdam website, supplemented with really nice posts on Facebook and Instagram.
NOW! the 7th print-edition of the ArtIndexRotterdam
Febr – April exhibition listings are published. Great for a quick overview of openings, performances and list of museums/art institutions and galleries.
Explore the city, follow the art from East to West
Some of my favourite contemporary art galleries are eg. Cinnnamon at Gouvernestraat 83a, Joey Ramone at Josephstraat 166, Wilfried Lenz at Justus van Effenstraat 130 – all in the West.
Cokkie Snoei at Mauritsweg 55, Zerp at Oldenbarneveldstraat 120A and at Witte de Withstraat TENT. number 50 and showroom MAMA number 29 – all downtown.
In the East, Garage Rotterdam at Goudsewagenstraat 27. All worth a visit!
On Fridays from 18:00 – 21:00 you can join Kunstblock – a free art evening in the art quarter of Rotterdam thanks to a collaboration of the art institutes in the Witte de Withkwartier. If you go, visit De Aanschouw too!
You get your printed ArtIndexRotterdam with a handy free map at TENT or at one of the other participants.
