Visited the Art at the Warehouse festival in the Fenixloods on Katendrecht, Rotterdam.
We would like to introduce to you: Art at the Warehouse – a new Art Festival in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. In the old warehouse Fenixloods 1 a new art fair, expo and multi-disciplinary festival will take place under one enormous roof. Simultaneously with the well-known international fair Art Rotterdam and several other art events in Rotterdam (Art Rotterdam Week), Art at the Warehouse will take place from Tuesday February 5 till Sunday February 10, 2013. In this week, the entire city of Rotterdam is a feast of culture and contemporary art.
An art fair, exhibition 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.
Art at the Warehouse is organized by JMR Productions, who also produced RAW Art Fair 2012 in the Fenixloods (and several big events in Rotterdam like the Rotterdam Dance Parade and the National Fireworks at the Erasmus Bridge). This year, JMR works with a commission of galleries who form the jury of Art at the Warehouse. The commission comprises the Dutch gallery owners Majke Hϋsstege, Frank Taal, Roger Katwijk and Zic Zerp.
