CLAPTRAP is a new initiative led by artist Leo Alessandro Lopez, Ayrton Eblé and Joppe Venema. From the will to provide a professional and free-minded space, we aim to show the work of international, young, emerging contemporary artists and forward-thinkers of all kind.
Located in the basement of the 31 Wolstraat building, headquarters of the artists collective ERCOLA, one of the oldest and still active groups of the Antwerp art scene (since 1968), CLAPTRAP is determined to pursue its heritage by providing a polyvalent space for dialogue and experimentation.
GALLERY GALLERY is a non-profit artist-run initiative organising short-term events focused on post-conceptual art. GALLERY GALLERY is run by Rens Cools and based in 2140 Antwerp.
Drop City is an occasional public space, curatorial project and collaboration between Sam Watson and Eleanor Wright. Committed to pursuing meaningful, responsive and long-term collaborations with artists and other initiatives, Drop City was founded in 2014 as a platform for collaborative process. Taking on various models and roles—gallery, host, publisher, guest—Drop City’s responsive approach to its structure fosters the emergence of new perspectives and paradigms of cultural hospitality.
