The impressive frontage of the Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art is testament to the exhibitions within. Since 1990, Witte de With has worked to constantly refresh and adjust its exhibitions to culturally reflect upon social and political predicament and change, innovative in its commitment to education and presentation of curated exhibitions, live events and copious publications. Featuring works by esteemed creators, such as narrative artist Christina Li and the work of Hans Van Dijk, popularizing Chinese art in the Netherlands, Witte de With is the go-to venue for cutting edge contemporary art.

Witte de With is a public institution in the field of contemporary art and its related discourses. Critical reflection on timely issues through curated exhibitions, theoretical and educational programs and a bold publishing arm is core to its mission.

Established in 1990 and with Rotterdam as its homebase, Witte de With acts as a dedicated platform for emerging and established artists, curators, and writers from across the globe. The question of how to define the institution’s role in relation to developments in contemporary art is continually revisited, with every Director and her team making their mark, every 3-6 years. As such, Witte de With’s programs continue to provide access to diverse practices on an ongoing basis and consider how not only contemporary art, but also an institution, is represented and perceived by diverse audiences today.
