Sculpture route ‘Let’s Get Physical’ is a dynamic exploration of the burgeoning industrial Merwevierhaven area in Rotterdam-West, highlighted through a selection of 30+ Atelier Van Lieshout works at 12 different locations. Atelier Van Lieshout, the studio founded by artist Joep van Lieshout, was one of the first art studios to settle in the Merwevierhaven in the 1980s and continues to expand and foster projects that elevate the area. ‘Let’s Get Physical’ starts at AVL Mundo Sculpture Park, the heart of the sculpture route and fans out over M4H. Other participating locations are: Weelde, Floating Farm, Keilecafé, De Voedseltuin, Keilewerf, Stichting Dakpark and several publicly accessible venues.
