Publiek Park 2023
Harmoniepark, Albertpark & Provincietuin, Antwerp

15.09 - 01.10.2023
The second edition of Publiek Park takes place from September 15 to October 1, 2023 in Antwerp, inhabiting the urban green area of Harmoniepark, Koning Albertpark and the garden of the Provinciehuis. Publiek Park aims to highlight the various layers of stories public green spaces contain by bringing together visual art, performance, music, film, word and more.

Urban parks inherently serve as spaces of exhibition, with artistic and historical monuments on display, functioning as an archive of the city. As precious side-effects of human desire for nature, culture, remembrance, leisure, freedom and control, parks encapsulate both location-specific and universal narratives. The exhibition and programme of Publiek Park is created to complement and illuminate what is already present at these three green spaces, forming a promenade through intricate histories, complex presents and imagined futures.

During Publiek Park, you are invited to enjoy an exhibition with the works of 18 local and international artists, as well as a public programme, created in collaboration with various cultural partners.

In addition to the presentations at the parks, artworks can be seen at TICK TACK, Moonstreet, Red Herring Salon, Annie Gentils Gallery and LLS Paleis.

Participating artists:

019, David Bernstein, Christiane Blattmann, Alessio Ragno Capone, Jonas Dehnen, Nico Dockx, Lise Duclaux, Jakub Jansa, Monika Emmanuelle Kazi, Jiyoung Kim, Metahaven, Mathias Mu, Yemo Park, Paola Siri Renard, Leander Schönweger, Hussein Shikha, Pei-Hsuan WangGuy Woueté
