Kunsthal Extra City is temporarily closed. Working from the former Dominican Monastery on the main site of AAIR we are currently in the process of realizing our new exhibition space. We will reopen our doors at this new location in spring 2021.

Kunsthal Extra City’s new artistic coordinator

Joachim Naudts

Kunsthal Extra City is delighted to welcome Joachim Naudts as its new artistic coordinator. From October 2020 he will, together with the team, work from the former Dominican Monastery to create new, inspiring exhibition space for contemporary art, a place to reflect on the city and our changing society.

Joachim Naudts (BE, 1982) has been professionally active in the field of contemporary art and photography since 2008. He has curated over thirty exhibitions, most of which for the FOMU (Fotomuseum, Antwerp). He is also actively involved in various cultural organisations.

With a new location, a new artistic coordinator and its partnership with AAIR, Kunsthal Extra City faces a promising future.

A NEW LOCATION, A NEW BEGINNING

Cohousing and collaboration Extra City - AAIR

Kunsthal Extra City recently relocated to AAIR’s main site. Working from the former Dominican Monastery we are currently in the process of realizing our new exhibition space. We will reopen our doors at this new location in spring 2021.

The cohousing is the result of an ongoing relationship and collaboration between Kunsthal Extra City and AAIR which aims to transform the new site into a bastion for visual arts in Antwerp by bringing together exhibitions, residencies and other presentations.
