Extra City
Art Space / Antwerp, Belgium

Extra City is a ‘Kunsthal’ (art space) that finds inspiration in the city for depicting different visions of our future, by encouraging new links between contemporary (inter)national art and artists, researchers, and city dwellers.

Programs include themed group shows and solo exhibitions with (inter)national contemporary visual art and a wide range of evening activities including films, lectures and debates.

Extra City departs from the city and connects back to it. We focus on urban reality in all its facets as central to the challenges of the 21st century. Extra City wants to scrutinize it: our program reveals underexposed opportunities and conflicts and looks for aesthetic or socio-political seams in the urban fabric; it nourishes new imaginations and encourages artistic research and debate about the city. We want to make a difference to our environment in lots of ways, which is why we always work in conjunction with other (supra)local forces, artistic and non-artistic. Our programme is as multi-layered and changeable as the urban issues: varied, sometimes very sharp, but never too fast. Extra City creates extra thinking and breathing space in the city, not as an isolated comfort zone, but as an open area where a society in transition is reflected upon across borders.

Extra City is responsible for the public understanding of contemporary art. For us, the public is as important as the artists. All the exhibitions are free.
