Antwerp Art

Only 21 days left!

The 5th edition of Antwerp Art Weekend will take place this year in over 80 art spaces, galleries, art schools, museums, temporary exhibitions and art events to celebrate the thriving art scene with you!

For the full programme visit the Antwerp Art Weekend website at: antwerpart.be/weekend/#weekend

De Studio functions as the main venue for the Antwerp Art Weekend, conveniently located in the center of the city, hosting a curated exhibition, performances and our annual celebratory party, the Nacht van de Beeldende Kunst or Night of the Visual Arts. This year’s curator is Petra Heck, who put together the exhibition Conversing Motherboards with artists Rory Pilgrim, Raphaela Vogel, Josefin Arnell and Amber Vanluffelen. For the Nacht van de Beeldende Kunst we invited Subbacultcha Belgium to put together a musical program that correlates to the exhibition.

M HKA won’t let the last weekend of Laure Prouvosts ‘AM-BIG-YOU-US LEGSICON’ go unnoticed. Neither do we not feel like celebrating the opening of our downstairs exhibitions, showcasing the works of Jan Cox, Leon Van Essche, Sveta Shuvaeva and Hedwig Houben. The celebration is on and will present itself in the form of an eventful weekend at M HKA. Think art book and poster sale, a performance by Hedwig Houben, many guided tours and family first activities, rooftop terrace drinks and an overall creative vibe.
