    MUSEUM-Modern Art...

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Ok , I'm the first to tell that the museum for
    modern art - 'MUHKA - 'Museum voor
    hedendaagse kunst' in dutch isn't Antwerps
    best museum. The building from the outside
    is quit remacable but not build for this cause.

    The Muhka has got quit an archive where
    they can take works from to expose. They
    also often attract foreign artist or build up an
    exhibition by one artist.
    The works change on a regular bases.
    So it is stupid to say something on the quality
    of the work.

    Sometimes the works make you smile ,
    think... Your amazed how they made the
    things... AND sometimes it is so boring , ugly
    and then the best thing is the cafeteria.
    (which is quit nice.)

    'Parents' are welcome for sure
    because there is a playroom and aften
    activities organized by the museums during
    school holidays. Please check the website
    for full information.

    Anyway , if your not into modern art and your
    on a tight schedule , skip this one.

    (in the picture , a work by 'Wang Du' ,
    body works , it was placed just in front of the
    elevator. Quit a surprice. Btw if your easely
    offended by nude stay away. ;-))

    MUHKA : Museum of contemporary art.

    MUHKA

    MUHKA’s full name is Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst Antwerpen, or Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp. It has been housed in a converted grain silo and adjoining warehouse since 1987. This renovation and change of use is very much in keeping with the attention that is now being paid to the fascinating urban planning of the ‘Zuid’ or South area of the city.

    The MUHKA’s 4.000 square metres of exhibition space devoted to art from 1970 to the present day. The building and the collection, which of course is constantly being added to, belongs to the Flemish Community. Moreover, the museum has the Matta-Clark Foundation collection in its possession for an indeterminate period of time. Initially it formed the basis of the MUHKA collection and consists of more than 150 works by Belgian and international artists.

    A number of temporary exhibitions are mounted each year.

    Admission
    € 3,72 . Children and Seniors : € 2,48 .

    Opening Hours
    Every day from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., except for Mondays and on January 1st, Ascension Day and December 25th.

    This museum was housed in a converted grain silo and adjoining warehouse in 1987. The renovation and change of use of the buildings was very much in keeping with the renewed attention for the 'Zuid' district of the City, one of the most exciting districts in Antwerp with regard to urban planning.

    The MUHKA's 4,000 square metres of exhibition space is devoted to art from 1970 to the present day. The building and the collection, which of course is constantly being added to, belongs to the Flemish Community. Moreover, the museum has the Matta-Clark Foundation collection in its possession for an indeterminate period of time, which consists of more than 150 works by Belgian and international artists. A number of temporary exhibitions are mounted each year.



    Open: Tuesday-Sunday 10.00 - 17.00
    Closed on Monday, January 1st, May 1st, Ascension Day, December 25th.

    Admission fees: 5 Euro

    From the exposition China Now

    A nice museum for modern arts is the MuHKA: Museum voor Hedendaagse Kunst Antwerpen. On their website you'll find the information about the expeditions they have at this moment.
    I found this picture on their website, it's from the exposition "China Now" which is really worth a visit......
