Antwerp harbours a vibrant contemporary art scene, ranging from internationally renowned museums, galleries and art centres to artist-in-residencies, art schools, project spaces, young and upcoming initiatives and pop-up exhibitions.
Conveniently located in the proximity of Brussels, Paris, London, Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Cologne, Antwerp hosts a continuous flow of artists and art lovers, complementing the already, vibrant local scene.
Since 2014, the non-profit organization Antwerp Art connects and promotes the activities by its members - a selection of quality contemporary art galleries, art spaces and museums -, as well as a brisk pool of upcoming art initiatives and pop-up exhibition spaces, located in Antwerp.
Antwerp Art is the joint platform for these exhibition spaces, listing relevant exhibitions and openings for both professionals and a wider audience. Next to this, Antwerp Art organizes the annual Antwerp Art Weekend, a manifestation for contemporary art in Antwerp.
Antwerp Art is a non-profit organization and is supported by its members and the City of Antwerp.
Every year, Antwerp Art organizes the Antwerp Art Weekend, a four day, citywide manifestation, where art venues in and around Antwerp put their hands together to celebrate contemporary art. This is the best time to experience the city and its flourishing art scene, with an abundance of galleries, art spaces and museums to visit.
The Antwerp Art Weekend of 2019 will take place from 16-19 May. We will be celebrating our fifth edition.
