Behind the scenes, we have been working on our new website, antwerpartweekend.be, which will be online from 18h, this evening. A symbolic moment, as the 6th Antwerp Art Weekend would have opened at this time.
Normally the site would be dedicated to the Antwerp Art Weekend, featuring its program, exhibitor list and an interactive map, yet due to the cancellation, we decided to use this moment to emphasize what has happened in the past. You'll be able to find a visual archive spanning five years Antwerp Art Weekend, articles highlighting the evolution of the Nacht van de Beeldende Kunst, who curated who in De Studio and an overview of our design. But also the present deserves attention, as there are venues carefully opening their doors again and projects visible from the comfort of your homes or in the streets of Antwerp, which you can read up on in My Art Will Go On.
We'd like to give a big hug and an enormous thank you to design studio Vrints-Kolsteren and web developer Matthias Deckx for the incredible job they did in creating this website for us.
We look forward to seeing some art in the analogue world very soon. There are still vitrine exhibitions: Have a look at the Royal Academy behind the glass where the two artists' collectives 'Forbidden City' and 'De Efemeren' share their projects at Jezuïetenrui 7 and yes … also digital. Meanwhile Gallery FIFTY ONE and Gallery FIFTY ONE TOO erect their Art Brussels and Drawing Now fair-booths to their gallery spaces.
There is more: We are happy to present you a list with venues who will carefully re-open their doors while following the guidelines and health procedures issued by the Belgian government. Make sure you’ll check with them how you can make your visit.
Enjoy and take care!
