GUIDED TOUR hall 2 | Sylvie Fleury. yes to all


In the spring of 2024, Kunsthal Rotterdam is presenting a large-scale exhibition of the work of the Swiss artist Sylvie Fleury (1961, Geneva). For the very first time her provocative installations, sculptures, ready-mades, and paintings will be shown in the Netherlands. In a playful way, Fleury challenges the cultural constructs of gender stereotypes. She uses modern advertising strategies such as attention-seeking slogans, brightly coloured neon lights, and seductive presentations to explore the boundaries between contemporary art and consumerism. Incorporating elements from the worlds of fashion and film, pop culture, and art history, Fleury consistently succeeds in creating unexpected new stories, always infused with a generous dose of humour and individuality!

GUIDED TOUR HALL 1| Richard Avedon. Relationships


This summer, Kunsthal Rotterdam is presenting a large-scale retrospective of the American photographer Richard Avedon (1923-2004). With over a hundred and thirty photographs, the exhibition Richard Avedon: Relationships sheds light on Avedon’s groundbreaking contribution to fashion photography as well as his distinctive photographic portraits. His powerful, expressive portraits capture people like the writer Truman Capote, the actress Marlene Dietrich, the musician Bob Dylan, the artist Andy Warhol, and the actress and model Nastassja Kinski. Relationships is a celebration of Avedon's innovative power and creativity and shows how the photographer was able to convey the complexity and vulnerability of human relationships in the photographic frame like no other. 



Every year Kunsthal Rotterdam presents a series of inspiring masterclasses by remarkable artists. Guests have included photographer Peter Lindbergh, architect Rem Koolhaas, fashion artists Viktor&Rolf, trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort and Dj Isis. Keep an eye on the activity calendar to stay up to date for upcoming masterclasses.


During KunstKoppels (ArtCouples) you will meet someone in the Kunsthal who is completely new and unknown to you. Someone from another generation, or with a different background or lifestyle. After an introduction you will dive into the total installation Acknowledge Rebuild. KunstKoppels is organized in cooperation with Rotterdam Heroes, a youth project of Unie Van Vrijwilligers Rotterdam (UVV). Students can participate for free. Keep an eye on the activities calender here when the next edition will take place. The main language during this event is Dutch.
