A new and unique exhibition space in the former Submarine Wharf of the Rotterdamsche Droogdok Maatschappij (RDM) at Heijplaat
The RDM - a piece of early twentieth-century industrial heritage - is currently being redeveloped with a focus on education, innovative companies and culture. The almost 5,000m2 Submarine Wharf dating from 1937 is of a comparable size to the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern in London.
Dutch artist Joep van Lieshout is inaugurating this space and shows his work on location in the port of Rotterdam, in an empty dock. It is the intention to organise more large exhibition by internationally renowned artists in the Submarine Wharf during the next summers.
The submarine wharf is a unique partnership between the Port of Rotterdam and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen
