Overview
More
Founded in 1990, Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art is a public institution in Rotterdam that presents a changing program of art commissions and exhibitions, educational initiatives and events. It also has a longstanding editorial program, which has included artist books, publications, exhibition readers and catalogs, as well as online publishing. Witte de With has served as a cultural platform for both emerging and established artists, curators, writers and art audiences alike, locally and internationally. Continually revisited is the question of how to define the role of art institutions in relation to artistic experimentation and cultural developments. Its program thus considers the places of contemporary art in the present, and the ways it has been experienced in the past. It also imagines the futures contemporary art may be shaped by—and those futures that art and culture in general could come to shape.

For me, this was a great art gallery to visit. I experienced some great exhibits and found it was a really relaxing place to enjoy myself.

Witte de With has been a fixed value in the Dutch contemporary art scene for ages. For a while they seemed to specialize in mostly highly conceptual art exhibitions - and I for one lost interest in their programme - but recently they seem to...More

This gallery is composed of huge rooms, almost empty, on 3 stories. On ground floor we almost had a mystical experience watching the production of Dutch contemporary artists.... Halfway between performance and weird accumulation of objects..... Don't go if you are not in the best...More

A disappointing place to explore. Luckily, we went in with our Museumkaart (card for Dutch museums) and didn't have to pay to enter, otherwise I would have been even more disappointed. The venue includes lots of large open spaces, but the artwork filling the spaces...More
