Flanders Architecture Institute

Marie-José Van Hee architecten. A Walk
In 1993, as a young architect, Marie-José Van Hee exhibited her work at DE SINGEL. At that point, it was already clear that she would have a lasting influence on the architectural landscape in Belgium and far beyond. Almost thirty years later, the Flanders Architecture Institute is again inviting this grande dame of the Belgian architecture scene to stage an exhibition. In Marie-José Van Hee architecten. A walk not only are you introduced to her work, but you also walk through that of other architects, artists and thinkers. Marie-José Van Hee: “As an architect you cannot be an ego tripper. The whole point is that you are working with and for people.”
Artists: Jan Baes, Stéphane Beel, Hélène Binet, Dirk Braeckman, etc. 
Curator: Marie-José Van Hee architecten

Opening hours during Art Antwerp: Thu, Fri, Sat and Sun (14:00-22:00).

Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten Antwerpen (KMSKA)

Michel Seuphor. The poetry of the abstract
Michel Seuphor was a poet to the core, even when he was drawing. His abstract lacunary drawings with horizontal lines lead the eyes to the unlimited universe of the mind. In the prints room, the drawings stand out beautifully against the steel blue walls. The spaces between the lines and the blank shapes and words seem to emit light. These drawings are vibrant. Gradually, Seuphor’s interplay of lines hypnotises you. Let yourself be transported on a journey to new territories in which the mind can rest and wander, but can also be stirred. That is the power of abstract art.
Artist: Michel Seuphor
Curator: Adriaan Gonnissen
