Opening Reception Fall/Winter Exhibitions 2021


Please join us on Friday, 1 October 2021, from 6 to 8 pm, for the opening reception of our upcoming exhibitions:

In our second-floor galleries, two solo exhibitions: Iris Kensmil: Some of My Souls and Jasmine Thomas-Girvan: Bathed in Sacred Fire. Plus, Joy Mariama Smith: Black Joy/White Fragility, one of three presentations of the HAP collaboration. On the first floor, Rotterdam Cultural Histories #20: The Museum of Education and Art, and On "Constant: New Babylon" in the MELLY bookshop on the ground floor.

The participating artists and our team look forward to welcoming you to Kunstinstituut Melly.

On a final note: as per government regulations, please come prepared to show proof of vaccination or of a recent negative-test result; read more about the new Coronavirus measures in The Netherlands. This is only needed for the bar downstairs in MELLY, not for the exhibitions.

Several events and programs take place throughout the year. And, weekend activities continue at 84 STEPS, sited on the third floor since June 2021. For more information, follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter or check our Engage section.
