Rotterdam doesn’t seduce you with the romance of yesteryear. Rotterdam is “in your face”: modern and untamed. And that is also true of the city’s art, which is hard to define and resists being pigeonholed’, art journalist Marina de Vries wrote about the exhibition 'The City, the Artists and the Museum' in Vogue. The exhibition is on display in the large Bodon Galleries and the surrounding spaces until Sunday 1 September.

Concurrently the exhibition ‘Design in Rotterdam’ shows the city’s outspoken character with highlights from the museum’s design collection. This exhibition is on view until 3 November.
