During Art Rotterdam Week, the city transforms into a paradise for art lovers and professionals. Conventions and extraordinary exhibitions take over the city.

Artsy adventures

While discovering the artistic side of Rotterdam you'll end up at the most remarkable places. For example, the area around Katendrecht and Kop van Zuid will be transformed into a photography hub with three big photo events and in west there's lots of visual arts to see. Free shuttle busses are available to take you from location to location.

Art fairs
Each year, a variety of art fairs and conventions take place during Art Rotterdam Week: Art Rotterdam in the Van Nelle Factory, design fair OBJECT at the HAKA building, qade solo and photography manifestation Haute Photographie in Las Palmas. Free shuttle busses travel in between these key locations.
