Antwerp art weekend 20 - 22 May
The city of Antwerp harbours a dynamic contemporary art scene, ranging from internationally renowned museums, galleries and art centres to artist-in-residencies, project spaces, young and upcoming initiatives and pop-up exhibitions.
Antwerp Art is the joint platform for these exhibition spaces, listing relevant exhibitions and openings for both professionals and a wider audience.
Next to the regular exhibition openings there are collectively organized opening events. The Nocturne takes place every six weeks in galleries, museums and art spaces in the Zuid area of Antwerp. Borger takes place three times a year in galleries and art spaces in the Borgerhout, Zurenborg and Berchem areas. Leopold Sundays are a Sunday afternoon event, centered around a new cluster of galleries and art spaces in Antwerp's city center.
Once a year all activities by our Antwerp Art members gain momentum by combining exciting programmes, talks, performances, book presentations, parties, openings, and many more events into our Antwerp Art Weekend.
Antwerp has its own international art scene: though a relatively small town, the harbour mentality builds a strong foundation for existing, and new generations of artists.
