Philippe Van Wolputte at M HKA, Antwerp
Philippe Van Wolputte is part of the group exhibition “Lipstick and Gas Masks”, a presentation of new acquisitions for “The City Collection”, with works by Nel Aerts, Els Dietvorst, Bendt Eyckermans, Maika Garnica, Mashid Mohadjerin, Nadia Naveau, Otobong Nkanga, Imge Özbilge, Perry Roberts, Adrien Tirtiaux, Charline Tyberghein, Philippe Van Wolputte, Mathieu Verhaeghe, Guy Woueté and Cindy Wright.
The city of Antwerp starts with the development of a city collection of contemporary art. The artworks will be given on long-term loan to the Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp (M HKA), which will develop the collection together with the city. In the first year, the acquisitions for the new collection will focus on young artists living in Antwerp. This will provide them with support – both financially and in terms of appreciation – which today is even more urgent than ever because of COVID.
The exhibition will be on view from 13 Februari till 18 April, 2021.
