Exhibition in Antwerp ‘Haarstraat = Artstraat’


In 1997 we mounted an exhibition entitled ‘Haarstraat = Artstraat’ in the empty houses of the street. We selected architects and artists whose names include the three letters ‘ART’ (Maarten Van Severen, bOb Van Reeth, Narcisse Tordoir, Walter Van Beirendonck and others). Restaurants and cafés in the street (‘Matelote’, now ‘Gin Fish’; ‘Café de la Gare’, now ‘Mangi e Bevi’; ‘De Lantaarn’) joined in.

A year later Copyright organized a discussion evening with artists, gallery owners and critics in the Zuiderpershuis on the theme of ‘the art trade’ to tie in with the publication ‘The Gallery as a vehicle for art’ by the Amsterdam gallery owner Paul Andriesse. There were contributions by (among others) Jan Fabre, Bart Cassiman, Luc Tuymans and Bart De Baere.
