ROTTERDAM.- From 6 to 9 February the international art fair Art Rotterdam introduces you to the best contemporary art has to offer at its new location; the renowned Van Nellefabriek. Art Rotterdam uses two beautiful spaces in the Van Nellefabriek (the Coffee Factory and the Tobacco Factory). With that the fair extends to 114 participating galleries, half of them are from abroad.

The video section Projections, successfully launched last year, is now an integral part of the fair with 19 video presentations. The New Art Section, that presents the latest talents extends with 10 galleries to 25 participants. The Main Section of the fair also enlarges with 10 galleries to 70 participants.

Director Fons Hof: “With the extension of the New Art Section Art Rotterdam presents itself even better as the international stage for young art. On top of that the number of Dutch galleries is extended at the Main Section and as a result the national base of the fair is enlarged.”

International participation in Art Rotterdam 2014
The number of galleries from Belgium is, as last year’s edition, impressive, but at the 2014 edition galleries from Germany and Great Britain are well represented with their most important upcoming and established galleries. Art Rotterdam also welcomes participants from France, Switzerland and Denmark as well as debutants from Hungary, Egypt, Greece and Japan.

Young Art at Art Rotterdam
Art Rotterdam is the fair to discover young art. Many well-known artists have exhibited at Art Rotterdam in the past. For example the winners of the prestigious British Turner Prize of the past two years, Laure Provoost (winner Turner Prize 2013) and Elisabeth Price (winner 2012). They both made their début in 2010 at Art Rotterdam as relatively unknown artists. Their work was also on show at the fair in 2011 and 2012 at Galerie MOT-International.

Oscar Murillo whose prices have skyrocketed over the past two years made his fair début with a solo presentation at Art Rotterdam in 2012. Works that were then priced at around € 1.500,- now sell for staggering amounts of money. One of those works has sold in June 2013 for more than £ 250.000 at Christie’s in London.

Ryan Trecartin had a solo presentation at Art Rotterdam in 2012 at New Galerie from Paris and is now a rising star. He participated at the 2013 Venice Biennale with 5 large installations, that were later purchased by the well-known Zabludowicz Collection in London.

Prospects & Concepts
In and around the Van Nellefabriek various pop-up shows and artist presentations can be seen. The Mondriaan Fund shows young talent in a spectacular hall at the Van Nellefabriek in the exhibition Prospects & Concepts. On show is the work of 92 visual artists that have received a financial contribution by the Mondriaan Fund in 2012 to start their career. All disciplines are represented, painting and installations, photography and performances – and unknown talent as well as artists that have established a name already.
