Is the summer a sleepy period? Not with BRUTUS! This summer the buildings on the Keileweg are buzzing and teeming with artists participating in the major Rotterdam sales exhibition: Wild Summer of Art.

Look here for an overview and contact details of the participating artists Wild Summer of Art Part I

Wild Summer of Art combines the rut of the new roaring twenties with the brooding excitement of a holiday love and the freshness of a bottom-up artist initiative. This exhibition shows recent work by upcoming talent, mid-career makers and established names from region 010. This exhibition shows where Rotterdam art is and where it is going. It is the artistic thermometer between the buttocks of a feverishly working city.

The location of Wild Summer of Art is unique in its raw appearance. The former industrial site where BRUTUS is located comprises unsophisticated indoor and outdoor spaces. In this artist's playground, participants can go all out.

The composition of Wild Summer of Art is in the hands of a curatorial team consisting Piet de Jonge, (former curator of the Van Abbemuseum, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and Museum Kröller-Müller), in collaboration with Jessy Koeiman (curator of the Melly Art Institute) and Liesbeth Bik (visual artist and curator).

Dynamic Exhibition
