September 7 - 30: Studio Start
Stef Van Looveren's practice translates itself into video installation, performance and sculpture. He uses the installations as an attempt to reflect and dismantle the performativity of our human behaviour, primarily within the notion of gender. Playfully mimicking our social conducts along with visual culture, his work moves towards a surreal gesture.
At the Antwerp Art Pavilion he will present his new work 'DPA bags', A collection of functionless bags.
Oktober 12 - November 4: Annie Gentils Gallery
The Old In & Out & Up & Down
With sculptures and drawings by Dries Van Laethem, Kasper De Vos, Leendert Van Accoleyen, Robert Soroko and Simon Masschelein, circling around sculptures by Vic Gentils.
Brought together by Hans Theys.
November 16 - December 9 : Valerie Traan
An exhibition with works by Kathleen Vinck, Octave Vandeweghe and Timo Van Grinsven.

Building upon our further cooperation with the city of Antwerp, we have been granted one of the pavilions sited next to the MAS (Museum Aan de Stroom). Antwerp Art will host the space under the name Pavilion and will bring an eclectic mix of exhibitions and art events, sprouted from its pool of members and affiliates, focusing on strong presentations which can be viewed through its vitrines.
