OpenArtExchange is a young and fast growing, independent international art gallery, founded in 2018, with a 600 m2 art space in the museum quarters of Schiedam (Rotterdam-region). It aims to be a commercial international platform where non-western professional artists can exchange and exhibit high quality contemporary art along with their Western peers, all building healthy international careers.
Our art collection consists of paintings, drawings, collages, sculptures and occasionally installations and photography, predominantly from internationally acknowledged African artists from Angola, Congo, Nigeria and Benin, next to some seasoned local and European artists
Offline, we sell mainly to collectors in Europe through our gallery, international art fairs and art festivals and online we reach out globally through our website and social media and platforms Artsy, Kooness and ArtNet/ArtNet Auctions.
