Exhibitions, a brand new art fair in Antwerp, sustainable Christmas markets and more: See you there!
Exhibition: Fabrics of Nature at Extra City
Until 9 January Antwerp
A cloud catcher inspired by the nets used in the Chilean desert and mountain ranges to distil water from the morning mist, collages made from recycled fabrics and found objects on the street, an installation of stones, both real and imitations, … “Fabrics of Nature” at Extra City in Antwerp deals with the multifaceted relationships between humans and nature, and especially the looming dystopian collapse humanity has to answer for. Seven artists (Aymeric Ebrard, Agnese Forlani & Jackson Shallcross-Platt, Feng Li, Gwendoline Robin, Luca Vanello, Leon Vranken and Luca Dal Vignale) present their works, not only in the stunning former Dominican chapel but also through the hallway and into the green monastery garden.

Art fair: Art Brussels goes Antwerp at Antwerp Expo
From 17 to 19 December Antwerp
Art Brussels, the Belgian capital’s long-standing, reputed art fair, leaves its home for the first time to descend upon Antwerp: For three days, art fans will gather in the Flemish city for the debut edition of “Art Antwerp“, a new mid-sized art fair of regional reach with 59 participating galleries, mainly from Belgium but also from Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and even Austria. A testament to Antwerp’s vibrant, burgeoning art scene, which will present itself from its best side this weekend, for example during the Antwerp Art Nocturne on Saturday, a special late-night gallery hopping.
