Since 1993 the gallery has brought together seemingly different Belgian and foreign artists for the strength, authenticity and honesty of their work. Most important, however , is their ability to create a positive, uplifting experience. Their works have to be tools for transformation: they have to be mirrors to reach, to touch and to awaken the soul.

NK Gallery was founded in 2012 by Nadya Kotova. Originally from St. Petersburg, Ms. Kotova wanted to establish a cross-cultural bridge between her country of origin (Russia) and her country of residence (Belgium). Her goal was to help highlight the Russian contemporary art scene in the rest of the world through exhibitions at the gallery in Antwerp (BE) and the participation in art fairs around the globe (Cosmoscow, Contemporary Istanbul, Art Dubai, Art Paris, Art London). Six years on, the gallery has established a strong reputation both in Belgium and abroad. The exhibition program consists of six shows per year, ranging from group to solo exhibitions and combining Belgian and Russian artists with other strong voices of the international contemporary art scene. NK Gallery hopes to further position itself as the cross-cultural bridge between Russia and Belgium, helping to develop the interaction and dynamism between artists, collectors, curators and other art professionals from both regions.
Open Thursday - Saturday, 14:00 - 17:00, or by appointment.
As a strong supporter of the ZERO and Gutai art movements from its inception, Axel Vervoordt Gallery’s vision has gradually evolved into contemporary art with a special interest in the concept of the void, space and time. We focus on art that puts the creative process first and provide a neutral platform for artists with whom we’ve created a valuable and intense relationship. In 2014 we expanded to Hong Kong, to further bridge artistic expressions between the East and the West.
Axel Vervoordt Gallery was founded in January 2011 by Boris Vervoordt.

Jason Poirier dit Caulier (PLUS-ONE Gallery) and Sofie Van de Velde (Gallery Sofie Van de Velde) are both opening their second location in this area out of the conviction that the art world has interesting challenges ahead. We believe we should change our way of thinking and start sharing our knowledge on different levels. This open attitude will influence our day to day activity as a gallery owner. By joining two galleries, each with its own sense of identity, we will show how to handle the challenges we are facing in art today. Entering through a joined reception, visitors will have the chance to see PLUS-ONE Gallery on one side and discover a different vision at Gallery Sofie Van de Velde on the other side. Aware of their own strengths, both galleries believe in the advantages of joining forces. Within this philosophy we are convinced that sharing knowledge and information will make you achieve more.

On a unique location with a courtyard next to St James’s Church, Callewaert Vanlangendonck Collection shows important artworks dating from the postwar era. While the two other galleries (Wolstraat 21-23) host temporary exhibitions combining modern and contemporary artists, the Collection will have a more permanent display with only a few exhibitions a year.
Since starting Callewaert Vanlangendonck in 2012, gallery owners Yoeri Vanlangendonck and Brecht Callewaert have been collecting abstract art of great significance. The gallery’s collection is a good resemblance of a valuable part of Belgian art history. All key artists of the Belgian post-war art scene are represented.
By organising exhibitions around various themes, the collection gets the chance to be shared with the public. Partnerships with museums and private collectors enrich the shows with works which sometimes rarely have been seen on public display before.
The location has also a symbolic value. With Ruben's grave only a few meters away in the church, modern masters are suddenly closely connected to the old ones. This refers to the eternity, universality and timelessness of art and beauty. Creating a space where those three elements can live in harmony is one of the main purposes of the Callewaert Vanlangendonck Collection.
Originally launched to exist as a platform for emerging artists in 2015, the gallery has become a venue for discovering new talented artists. Art Gallery De Wael 15 hosts a vast variety of contemporary art exhibitions of the most prominent forms of visual art and creative media. The gallery is showing 8 exhibitions a year and also publishes catalogues and editions in collaborations with the artists.
Art gallery De Wael 15 represents Artur Eranosian, Dirk Vander Eecken, Greet Billet, Stefan Annerel, Kristel Van Ballaer, Naser Kianersi, Martha Scheeren, Rudy Lanjouw, Charlie De Voet.

A playing field with many possibilities.
FRED&FERRY GALLERY is an artist-dedicated gallery that gives opportunities to national and international artists.
On the one hand the public presentation is prominent and how it is designed in dialogue with the gallery space, on the other hand the interested visitors get a unique opportunity to meet artists at an early stage in their career.
We represent a selected group of artists and keep on supporting specific projects of an ever-growing number of associated artists.
We are committed to maintaining a good dialogue with colleague galleries and like-minded artcentres. In addition to the substantive discussions and philosophical explorations, they are regularly asked to invite an artist to present his or her work. Conversely, we invite artists to give shape to a presentation at their home.
Based in Antwerp in the new architectural district of the south, Everyday Gallery describes itself as a time capsule for future artistic references. With a mindset between the artist-run space and a commercial gallery, we display trans-disciplinary artists who dive deep into the radical world of fine and functional arts. With the world of art and design brutally colliding, the emphasis is put on the plasticity of the workflow. Shapes are shifting and lines entangled, giving a new territory for us to explore. As a gallery, Everyday mimics these mutations and allows its exhibition space to be modular and uncanny, giving to its artists and visitors a new model in which staticity is scarce.
Open Thursday-Saturday from 2-6pm.
DMW Gallery is an artist-run project space that conceives of the exhibition process as a lively dialogue between curator and artist, and artists among each other. We organise duo exhibitions where a selected artist collaborates with another artist of their preference. This dynamic process ensures a continuous evolution of the project space by bringing together an ever-expanding artistic community while retaining centralised guidance and direction. Each dialogue between selected and invited artist is closely documented on the website of the project space, and concludes with the presentation of a limited edition comprised of unique works, as an accessible entry point into the works of promising artists for beginning collectors and art aficionados alike.

The Antwerp photo gallery Ingrid Deuss, located near the Central Station, is since its start in 2010 a platform and presentation space for (inter)national artists.

Office Baroque is a contemporary art gallery in Antwerp.
Marie Denkens together with Wim Peeters started Office Baroque in a private apartment in Antwerp in 2007. Their initial commitment to art came from the wish to be involved in the process of selecting the art that travels from the artist's studio into the museum. Not to be "in the control room, in the museum," but more "in the kitchen with the artists," offering visibility to cultural producers, who are not yet part of the institutional and critical discourses.
Both Peeters and Denkens had been working respectively as an independent curator and critic before joining forces in 2004. Their first collaboration consisted of co directing Extra City in Antwerp, an established non-profit center for contemporary art. From 2008 thru 2013 the gallery was located in a storefront on Lange Kievitstraat in Antwerp. In November 2013 Office Baroque opened its first gallery in Brussels on Bloemenhofplein, to be followed by a second location on Ravensteinstraat. In September 2020 the gallery returned to its original location in Antwerp.
Please check the gallery website for opening hours.
ZEIT is a recent addition to the Antwerp gallery scene. The new space focuses on the juxtaposition of emerging artists and post war abstract heroes. Its core collection is the result of a lifetime of discovering, gathering, assembling and arranging. The opening exhibition BALLS! in spring 2020 showcased paintings, works on paper, prints and objects from the 1940s up to the present day, by some 20 artists and designers, with the circle as a common theme. It was followed by Filip Collin/Jo Delahaut, the first of its ‘brief: encounter’ series, in which the gallery invites a contemporary artist to explore the ZEIT collection and use it as a starting point to create new work.
Open Thursday, Friday & Saturday 2 pm - 7 pm (during exhibitions) and on appointment.
