Excursion to Antwerp and Mechelen


ADA Rotterdam organises an excursion to Antwerp and Mechelen on the 11th of October 2009. We will visit the exhibition ‘Textiles; Art and the Social Fabric’, Muhka, Antwerp and Contour 2009, the 4th edition of the biennial for moving images in Mechelen.

In the morning we will go to Antwerp for a visit at Muhka, the Antwerp museum for contemporary art. Their current exhibition ‘Textiles; Art and the Social Fabric’ shows works of artists, who all use textile as their medium. The exhibition focuses on the use of textiles in art as a way to speak about social issues, which are connected to these materials in daily life.
