Eldorado 3000 is a cultural outfit; we are entrepreneurs, consultants, promoters & disruptors. We organize & curate exhibitions, build installations and collaborate with other cultural organizations in the Rotterdam area. What the port does with goods, we do with ideas.
Eldorado3000 is the brainchild of dutch artists Jasper de Gelder & Johannes Steendam. Founded in early 2014 as an outlet for the work that did not fall within the parameters of their own careers, it soon grew into a playing field for experiments with space and content. As a result, ElDorado3000 was launched as an art exhibition in September of 2014.
The end of the successful exhibition marked the beginning of many hours of conversations with one of the exhibiting artist, spanish born Roberto Rodríguez, who joined ElDorado3000 as partner in March of 2015.
By April 2015 we received the invitation, on behalf of Rotterdam’s CBK, to take part in the Route du Nord Art Fair, where we presented an updated version of the Fury Room installation (completed with an exhibition space aptly named the 'Fields of Fury') in the second floor of the old Shell building in Rotterdam’s Pompemburg district.
The success of the installation along the weekend has led to planned exhibitions in Munich and Hamburg by the end of 2016 and beginning of 2017.
