360 years of the Academy in 360°
16.2 - 6.7.2023
In 2023, the Academy will blow out 360 candles! This time we position ourselves not in time but in space: 360° Academy.
In 1663, artist David Teniers took the initiative to establish the Antwerp Academy. This made it one of the very first art schools in the world. Instead of looking back and forward, we are now looking 360° around us during this 360th anniversary. How is the Academy positioned in the world, and how does the world work in the Academy? With 360° Academy in 2023, we reflect on our role in the contemporary arts landscape and our position in the global art world, and we do so in dialogue and interaction.
The 360° Academy programme kicks off during the Drawing Marathon on 16 February 2023 and is an invitation to all 'friends & peers' to connect with the Academy in all its facets!
With the SHOW and MASTERS EXPO coming up, the month of June an sich already constitutes a concentrated bundle of events that highlight our core values (inter)nationally. In honour of the anniversary, we put an additional focus on networking, alumni outreach and celebration!
