The cultural selection of things to do in Belgium. See you there!

Photography: Miles Fischler at Galerijke Marijke

Opens Saturday, 17 September, 19-22h00 Antwerp

Located in what was once a butchery, Antwerp’s Galerie Marijke keeps it simple: It exhibits one artist at a time, always for one month. Thanks to a large-scale window, the gallery is accessible 24/7, day and night, in an attempt to make art more accessible and integrate it into the neighbourhood. After Sanne De Wilde, Klaas Rommelaere and many others it’s now the turn of Antwerp photographer Miles Fischler, who is a master at spontaneously capturing fleeting moments and unexpected perspectives during her strolls and travels.
