After running the experimental art space called Montevideo in the old harbour of Antwerp, Belgium (1980-1984) with a renowned international program (see History), Annie Gentils opened the doors of her new gallery in the centre of Antwerp in May 1985. The aim was and still is to this day, to give a platform to contemporary Belgian and international artists, some even from the early beginnings of their artistic development.
The Annie Gentils Gallery presents contemporary multimedia and conceptual work, as well as painting and sculpture,
We find it important to make solo shows in the gallery space at least every 2 years,
In addition we actively promote our artists, often also with solo-shows at important international art fairs, in order to present them to collectors, institutions and museums world-wide.
