The start-up of Coppejans Gallery was greatly disrupted by the COVID-19 crisis. Because large gatherings and activities are not allowed, it is difficult to bring the artists and the public together at the start of the first working year of the gallery.
That is why Stijn Coppejans decided to count down to the official start with three short exhibitions. The first and second expo are already known. In a short first expo, visitors can get acquainted with the new Antwerp gallery space and the work of Panamarenko. 24 original drawings are shown which served as design sketches of the pastille motor. The second exhibition will be titled Packed & Boxed and will show work by some international artists who worked with packaging material.
Both the timing and the content of the third expo depend on the regulations surrounding the corona issue. We hope to gain more clarity on this during our summer exhibition and to make our planning final.
