Kunstinstituut Melly
Art Center / Rotterdam

Kunstinstituut Melly (formerly Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art) 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, Kunstinstituut Melly 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 to 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.

    Mudam
    Luxembourg
    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be. Those who founded Mudam Luxembourg, for example, envisioned a museum that would encompass many aspects of contemporary culture, such as art, design and architecture.
