Pop-up exhibitions in Gallery 3
In addition to its own programming, Nieuwe Instituut offers a platform for third-party initiatives from the field of art and design in its building in Rotterdam’s Museum Park. Since the beginning of 2020, pop-up exhibitions in the Gallery 3 space have given individual makers and organisations the opportunity to show their work to a wider audience in a museum setting.
As of 2023, for a few months a year, Nieuwe Instituut will reserve the corridors of Gallery 3 for new talent. As part of this initiative, called Open Space, five up-and-coming makers are given free rein to each fill a corridor during the three-month period of February, March and April.
