11 Artists of the Wall

<p>Art is public and does not always have to be displayed in traditional places like museums according to the visual artist Lieven Seghers, one of the five curators of Born in Antwerp. He came up with the idea of inviting an eclectic group of Antwerp artists to paint artworks on eleven Antwerp façades.</p>

A varied group of artworks

Enjoy a diverse group of artworks by such artists Luc Tuymans, Guy Rombouts, Fred Bervoets, Dennis Tyfus, Denie Put, Nadia Naveau, Nick Andrews, Michèle Matyn, Guillaume Bijl, Nel Aerts and Lieven Segers. These artists have stepped out of their comfort zone, approaching the empty façade as a blank canvas.
All the façades are in Antwerp’s city centre, from Leopoldstraat to Wapper to the University of Antwerp and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. As you wind your way through the city, you will discover that not all the artworks are paintings and that not all of them are actually on a wall.

Discover all the works of Artists of the Wall 

Here you can find all the locations of the artworks. The Antwerp Museum App will guide you to all 11 walls as well as providing further information about the artist and the work. You can download the app for free from your app store. This open-air exhibition will run for one year in Antwerp’s city centre.
