Fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck and museum curator Paul Huvenne have prepared an exhibition in MAS | Museum aan de Stroom in which they will review some of the artistic highlights of the amazing history of Antwerp's Academy.

In 2013 the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp will celebrate its 350th anniversary. It is considered one of the oldest art academies in the western world, along with those of Paris and Rome. The prestigious Fashion Department opened its doors three hundred years after the academy was founded. Both of these anniversaries, 350 years of existence of the Academy and 50 years of the Fashion Department, will be celebrated throughout 2013. To this end the Antwerp Academy, MoMu, MAS, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp and Antwerpen Open have joined forces for a magnificent celebration: ‘ Happy Birthday Dear Academie’.

350 years of Academy excellence in MAS

Fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck and museum curator Paul Huvenne have prepared an exhibition in MAS | Museum aan de Stroom. They will review some of the artistic highlights of the amazing history of Antwerp’s Academy in an accessible and creative exhibition. A wide selection of masterpieces from the Royal Museum of Fine Arts will be completed with masterpieces from the Academy's valuable collection and from unique private collections.
These works, combined with documents which have never been exhibited before, tell the tale of the evolution of 350 years of higher art education in an academic, international and urban context. The works of veterans such as Rubens, Jordaens and Teniers will be contrasted with that of more recent, world-renowned artists such as Van Gogh, Alma-Tadema, Panamarenko, Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven and other former students of the Academy.

In collaboration with the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, MAS | Museum aan de Stroom and Antwerpen Open.
