Art Rotterdam is the pre-eminent fair for contemporary art in the Netherlands. Every year, Art Rotterdam offers a platform to the latest developments in contemporary art. Its sharp focus on young art, the variety of its different sections, its connection to the city of Rotterdam, and the fascinating location all contribute to the art fair’s unique character. For a growing number of art lovers, Art Rotterdam has become an attractive alternative within the international field of art fairs. Part of Art Rotterdam is GalleryViewer.com, an online platform supporting potential art buyers in their prospective art acquisitions. Its over 90 participating galleries from the Netherlands and Belgium have been selected for their high-quality range.
