Located in two distinct areas of Antwerp, Gallery Sofie Van de Velde exemplifies entrepreneurial spirit in the art world. By participating in art fairs and exhibitions, the gallery emphasizes building a robust international network for its represented artists. Collaboratively with the artists, strategies are devised to elevate their work to new heights. Eschewing traditional competitive gallery models, Sofie Van de Velde embraces a philosophy centered on collaboration, shared opportunities, and networks.
The Nieuw Zuid location, shared with PLUS-ONE Gallery, showcases a dynamic and diverse exhibition program. Both galleries not only share a physical space but also a philosophy, championing a positive and transparent attitude toward collaboration while maintaining their artistic perspectives. As an early settler in the neighborhood, Gallery Sofie Van de Velde also pursues opportunities to integrate more art into Nieuw Zuid.
In 2020, the gallery unveiled a second location in Antwerp South, dedicated to solo exhibitions featuring Belgian and international artists. This space operates in an alternating exhibition format with PLUS-ONE Gallery, fostering a varied and engaging curatorial program.
