April 2019

See and do
There is plenty to see and do in Rotterdam in the coming weeks. And with the nice weather forecast and a number of days off that works out very well. First of all, the city designers of 2019 are known! Read on to find out who won. You can go to TENT for live performances, a symposium and two exhibitions during Post-Opera. In addition, Rotterdam Cultural Histories #16 will be opened, this time with the subject: how do you get from the Salvador Allendestraat to the Andre van der Louwbrug? On Koningsdag we celebrate in CultuurWerkplaats Tarwewijk, where you are very welcome. From May 15 you can go to an exhibition on the mesh side drawings at the Hilton Rotterdam and finally CBK Rotterdam is involved in new projects such as Tuin van Noord and the beautification of the Voorschoterlaan.
The city designers of 2019 are known!
After a successful pilot project in 2018 in which ten Rotterdam artists captured ten different buildings by Rotterdam architect Hugh Maaskant, the City Archives and CBK Rotterdam, in collaboration with the Kunsthal, decided to commission a number of artists to capture the city each year. At the start of 2019 they called on artists from Rotterdam to submit documentation on the basis of which a jury made a choice for the new city designers of 2019. This call was answered with 72 submissions that together nicely reflects the idiosyncratic nature of Rotterdam culture.

The jury wants to make its choice known with great conviction and pleasure. The Rotterdam City Designers are 2019 Cox Janssens, Kay Hessels and Isra Páez.
