Art Central Rotterdam XL – Art Weekend

More than 30 art spaces and institutions join forces to put the spotlight on Rotterdam's contemporary art scene.
From 17 to 19 March 2023, the city of Rotterdam will become in its entirety the spotlight of contemporary art and culture during the Art Central Rotterdam XL. This is a cultural event in which thirty art spaces and institutions in Rotterdam will simultaneously open their exhibitions with extended opening hours, to offer a complete program of activities accessible to the public for free: joint opening, a program of events and guided tours to discover and appreciate contemporary artworks, unique art centres and institutions located in every part of the city.

Over three days, Art Central Rotterdam XL will celebrate its second edition. Its main objective is to bring the general public closer to contemporary creation and disseminate the Rotterdam artistic scene internationally.

Central exhibition at Baanhof

To highlight the presence and make the connection between the comprising players of the Rotterdam art scene even stronger, Art Central Rotterdam presents a central exhibition "SUBJECT:TRANSITION" curated by Anna Buyvid at the art space Baanhof. 'SUBJECT:TRANSITION' aims to reflect on transitions in the broadest sense. "We are in a time strongly defined by the phenomenon of 'transitions': social, cultural, political, ecological. How do artists deal with these transition(s)? I want to create a space for a discussion in the context of the city of Rotterdam and its history and how this in turn relates to the future." During Art Central Rotterdam XL Art Weekend, Baanhof will be the home base where both the opening of the weekend and the central exhibition will take place.
