Antwerp Art Weekend is about going around, hopping from one exhibition space to another, but even more so this year, since we're restricted in how long we're allowed to stay inside venues and the amount of visitors that can enter a space at any given time. But we got you covered with guided and unguided tours in different parts of the city.
A project initiated by the District of Antwerp, Sint Lucas Antwerpen and FOMU Fotomuseum, this urban trail shows site specific artworks by 5 artists, inspired by the centenary of the Antwerp Olympic Games. The Kiel-district, on the south side of the city, is their playground. Join a guided tour in the presence of the artists on Saturday and Sunday, at 14h and 16h or do the tour by yourself. Find more information and a map of the installed pieces here.

Kunst Aan Zet is an art loan agreement that let's you buy artworks without having to pay interest. A multitude of galleries in Antwerp already have this feature installed and KAZ is organizing gallery hopping, guided tours in a different part of town, each day of the Antwerp Art Weekend.
