Eva Steynen.Deviation(s) was founded in 2013. Situated in the upcoming east-side of Antwerp, on the ground floor of a 19th century mansion. To explore new paths and to extend its activities beyond the traditional walls of an art gallery, Eva Steynen deviates from time to time to other locations. The gallery has a multidisciplinary approach and works closely with a small group of mid-career and emerging artists, Belgian based and international, and distinguishes itself by more risk-taking and curatorial shows often with a museal character. The visitor is invited to discover, reflect and connect.
After having realized various exhibition projects as a nomadic independent curator in Antwerp, Eva Steynen established the gallery in her parental home. Next to the solo shows, the rather curatorial projects evolve from a philosophical enquiry and a curiosity for aspects of the event in the artist’s act.
