OPENING ARTSPACE + OPEN ATELIER KOPLAND

16 december 2017
KOPLAND // Amerikalei 128 // 2000 Antwerpen
Just as our great city of Antwerp has been a battlefield for bulldozers, cement trucks and massive cranes, has our own KOPLAND been in need of some pizzaz.

Ever since the launch of KOPLAND at the Amerikalei, we have been vigorously exploring ways to bridge the gap between artists and the public.

The design for the cross-disciplinary space by interiorarchitect Laure Dever, one of our residents, provides us with the opportunity to host a range of cultural events from exhibitions, lectures, pop-up shops, performances, screenings and many more.

The refurbishments have cost us a lot of blood, sweat and the tears of an intern but was the next step in establishing an all-encompassing creative headquarter. KOP invites you to come and behold the new artspace during a weekend of festivities.
