Antwerp celebrates Rubens

Rubens will be your host this year for the cultural city festival ‘Antwerp Baroque 2018: Rubens Inspires’. You can look forward to a bold and overflowing programme of Baroque, old and new. The Rubens House is the starting point for the celebrations.

Rubens – one of the most influential artists of all time and the city’s most famous resident – will be spotlighted throughout the ‘Antwerp Baroque 2018’ festival. Beginning on 1 June 2018, you can discover a bold and overflowing programme at all sorts of locations, at which old and new Baroque will collide and bubble. Everything will be inspired by Rubens and his Baroque visual language, and the festival’s starting point will be the master’s home and studio: the Rubens House.
