The CINNNAMON story began in 2015 as a brick and mortar gallery in the l center of Rotterdam, the Netherlands. In 2020 the gallery relocated to a space on the premises of AVL Mundo on the Keileweg, sharing a building with Galerie Wilfried Lentz. Between 2015 and 2021 CINNNAMON organised over forty exhibitions on its two subsequent locations, as well as presenting at art fairs like Artissima, ARCO Madrid, Art Brussels, and Art-O-Rama Marseille.

From the onset, CINNNAMON has gained a reputation for being one the Netherland’s most exciting young galleries. The gallery worked with artists who share a great eye and a keen mind, their practices being pioneering but not trendy. We were among the first galleries in the Netherlands championing a generation of digital natives who incorporated ideas from new materialism in their work. Our philosophy was always rooted in artistic excellence and cooperation. This famed CINNNAMON attitude resulted in a professional network of friends that we trust will outlive the life span of the physical.

Since 2022 CINNNAMON exists as an agency, a platform from which founder Pieter Dobbelsteen aims to forge sustainable collaborations with galleries and exhibition venues for selected artists in our network. In this hybrid form that encompasses curatorial projects, consultation, and artist management, the CINNNAMON story continues.

Our roster of gallery artists (in its final form) is archived here (link).
