Nacht van de Beeldende Kunst

For the Nacht van de Beeldende Kunst or Night of the Visual Arts, the celebratory party and exhibition of Antwerp Art Weekend at DE Studio, curator Nadia Bijl invited fifteen artists to design a poster. The posters were to be perceived as an “artist page”, where only the size was determined in advance. As follows, the content was able to be interpreted freely by the artists. These fifteen posters are printed in a large edition and hung on the walls of the entire ground floor at DE Studio, where the party takes place as well. On the first floor of DE Studio, these artists are each represented with one artwork. The aim of the project, called '15 artists, 15 posters' is to put these young artists, who are active in the Antwerp art scene, in the spotlight.
Particpating artists are Elias Cafmeyer, Filip Collin, Kasper De Vos, Elleke Frijters, Oscar Hugal, Vedran Kopljar, William Ludwig Lutgens, Rufus Michielsen, Bence Rohánszky, Mima Schwahn, Valgerður Sigurðardóttir, Vincent Vandaele, Liese Vanhove, Sine Van Menxel and Ken Verhoeven.

15 artists, 15 posters runs the entire Antwerp Art Weekend from Friday to Sunday.

The party itself, featuring live sets by Rashad Becker (DE) and Das Ding (NL), is hosted by TRAP, an event space and bar in central Antwerp with an infinite capacity for all manner of art and music. It is operated, programmed and scrubbed clean by Roman Hiele, Allon Kaye, and Milan Warmoeskerken, who will also be DJing throughout the night.
Berlin-based Rashad Becker is an internationally-renowned
mastering engineer and recording artist. His most recent album,
Traditional Music of Notional Species Vol. II, was released by
PAN in 2016.
Das Ding (Danny Bosten) has been active since the early 1980s,
releasing powerful, dark electro via his Tear Apart Tapes label
and latterly on the influential American imprint Minimal Wave.

The Night of the Visual Arts takes place on Saturday, May 20 and starts at 21h.
The exhibitions hosted in DE Studio will be on view until 1am that night.
Entrance is 10 €.

DE Studio, Maarschalk Gerardstraat 4, 2000 Antwerpen.
