NEON is an arts and culture foundation located in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. We bring art to the people by organising exhibitions in unconventional spaces. Our passion lies in organising events that will facilitate the dialog between the creatives and their public in a visually engaging environment.
The location and characteristics of the space inspire the exhibition concept, theme and curatorial process.
We select the work of contemporary artists and offer them a unique platform to showcase their work.
