Art Rotterdam 2022 keeps on innovating

As with previous editions, Art Rotterdam 2022 will take place in the Van Nelle Fabriek in Rotterdam. Seducing art lovers and professionals from home and abroad.

The fair is renowned for its focus on emerging art. During its 23rd edition it offers visitors an opportunity to follow the latest developments in art. More than 100 leading galleries will present the work of up-and-coming and established talent. There are two important innovations: the Projections video section will take place as part of the gallery exhibition and Prospects will occupy its own  Expedition Building, located directly opposite the entrance.
