OpenArtExchange is a young and fast-growing, independent international art gallery founded in 2018 with a 600 m2 art space in the museum district of Schiedam (Rotterdam region). We aim to improve the diversity in the art supply and offer commercial access to the international art market to non-Western contemporary artists. In the past years, OpenArtExchange has grown into an African contemporary artspecialist, in addition to Western art from some experienced local and European artists.
Our contemporary art collection consists of paintings, drawings, watercolors, collages, textile and mixed media works, sculptures and some installations and photography. These works, in a wide variety of styles and techniques, are largely made by (inter)nationally recognized artists of different generations from West African countries (mainly Benin/Nigeria, being extended to Togo, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Cameroon and Mali) and from Central/Horn of Africa (Angola/Congo).
Offline we mainly sell to collectors in Europe through our gallery in Schiedam, as well as through (inter)national art fairs and art festivals. We reach a global audience online through our website and social media and third party platforms such as Artsy and ArtNet/ArtNet Auctions.
