Antwerp harbors a vibrant contemporary art scene, ranging from internationally renowned museums, galleries and art centers to artist-in-residencies, project spaces, young and upcoming initiatives and pop-up exhibitions.

Conveniently located in the proximity of Brussels, Paris, London, Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Cologne, Antwerp hosts a continuous flow of artists and art lovers, complementing the already, vibrant local scene.

Since 2014, the non-profit organization Antwerp Art connects and promotes the activities by its members – a selection of quality contemporary art galleries, art spaces and museums -, as well as a brisk pool of upcoming art initiatives and pop-up exhibition spaces, located in Antwerp.

Antwerp Art is the joint platform for these exhibition spaces, listing relevant exhibitions and openings for both professionals and a wider audience. Next to this, Antwerp Art organizes the annual Antwerp Art Weekend, a manifestation for contemporary art in Antwerp.
