An art fair, exposition and festival rolled in to one
Art at the Warehouse takes place in a rough and inspiring warehouse, which reflects the forcefulness of the event and is within walking distance of Art Rotterdam. On the ground floor the top of Contemporary Art is presented by (inter)national galleries. On the first floor large installations and projections take over next to a Urban Supermarket and the art of gaming in Playful Arts Festival. Hereby Art at the Warehouse doesn’t only display art, but also allows visitors to experience art in a unique environment. In the large entry, visitors can dine, drink and be entertained, shocked and moved by a diverse cultural program of music, dance, theatre and talk shows in Warehouse style. In the evening Art at the Warehouse goes live with artists like Jules Deelder (& De Deeldeliers) and Dave von Raven (& The Kik). This unique event offers art in all its forms and makes contemporary art accessible for a large audience.
