The Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp Celebrates 350th Anniversary

25 March 2013

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’.

The eye-catchers during this festive year are the exhibitions in MAS and MoMu. Other projects in other sites will highlight fashion and the visual arts. The historic site of the Academy itself will also host several events and exhibitions. A book publication, a project at M HKA, a conference on higher art education, a city walk and a heritage project which focuses on the impact of the Academy in Antwerp complete the program of festivities.
