Antwerp Art Weekend kicks off its tenth edition with over 100 activities

The tenth edition of Antwerp Art Weekend features a four-day lineup of exhibitions, lectures, parties, and other activities. From Thursday evening until Sunday, 70 locations around the city host exciting contemporary art events.

The programme provides a weekend full of activities as diverse as Antwerp's art scene and showcases both local and international artists. Gallery Hopping Tours in Antwerp Zuid and Borgerhout offer a more intimate view into these neighbourhoods with deep art roots. These two artistic hubs on opposite sides of the city bring their own flare and dynamism. Antwerp Zuid is known for its established galleries and larger museums, while Borgerhout is characterised more by its local, down-to-earth approach informed by the area's international community.

Dance, sculpture and a nod to Michael Jackson come together in an "unusual, crazy, erratic, eccentric and freaky" performance that uses 3D work. Stellar is a project by visual artists Kathleen Vinck, Tom Volkaert and choregrapher Marc Vanrunxt.


For those who want to make art in addition to viewing it, there is an introductory sculptural flameworking workshop in English. Participants learn the basics of heating, separating and bonding glass to construct elemental 3D sculptures. Make a Glass Flower is hosted by the artist-managed workplace Archipel in Antwerp North.

Each evening ends with a party or a music performance and the opportunity to dance and chat with other art lovers about the events of the day.
