Art Rotterdam 2014
The 15th edition of Art Rotterdam will be celebrated at a new location: the Van Nellefabriek. Here, all sections of the fair are now under one roof: Main, New Art and Projections; the second edition of the innovative video section. In and around the Van Nellefabriek there are numerous pop-up shows and artist presentations.
During Art Rotterdam the city is once again bubbling with energy, with side fairs, pop-up shows, open studios and beautiful museum exhibitions. Between the Van Nellefabriek, the Museum quarter and the Wilhelminapier free shuttle buses operate for you to discover the best of what the city of Rotterdam has to offer culturally. On this website and on the website www.artrotterdamweek.com you can read all about it.

Van Nelle Factory
The Van Nelle Factory in Rotterdam is considered as one of the most important industrial heritage monuments in the Netherlands. In 1986 the building gained the status of state monument and is also nominated to be listed on the Unesco World Heritage List.
The factory is built between 1927 and 1930 and is an icon of post WW I modern architecture in the Netherlands. The ‘Nieuwe Bouwen’ as it is called in Dutch was, among others inspired by the architecture of Le Corbusier. Characteristic of this ‘Nieuwe Bouwen’ is the use of modern materials and construction materials that create transparent, spacious and clear spaces. The Van Nelle Factory is a good example with its transparent metal constructions and large glass windows that create, inside and outside the building, a feeling of brightness and spaciousness. This result is further strengthened by the fact that not the façades but the pillars in the building support the construction.
The factory was designed by the architects Brinkman & Van der Lugt in cooperation with design engineer Ir. J.G. Wiebenga. The principal, the director of the factory Kees van der Leeuw, tried to create a pleasant working environment for his employees. That’s why there are no basements; one worked in a building filled with light, air and space. On top of that showers were installed and even a tennis court was built, all for the employees of Van Nelle to use.
The Van Nelle factory produced tobacco, coffee and tea until 1995 when the production was finished. Together with the new owner (since 1987) Sara Lee/ Douwe Egberts new ways to use the buildings were examined. In 1998 the Ontwerpfabriek bought the factory. They shaped the former factory into a dynamic premises with offices and rentable spaces for creative entrepreneurs.
The 15e edition of Art Rotterdam takes place from 6 to 9 February 2014 in two wonderful spaces (the Coffee factory and the Tobacco factory) in the Van Nelle Factory.
