Contemporary art in Antwerp

Antwerp and its renowned museums, many galleries and art spaces has become a magnet for the many artists who chose to live here and is a fertile breeding ground for contemporary art projects.

The city of Antwerp is home to an international contemporary art scene, including renowned museums, galleries and art centres as well as artists in residence, project spaces, pop-up exhibitions and all kinds of other creative initiatives.

Antwerp Art serves as the common platform for all these initiatives. It combines the major openings and exhibitions, for the public and for professionals. Once a year all these art institutions and organisations join forces to organise the Antwerp Art weekend, with special openings, artist’s lectures and other initiatives.
