'A nice place to make discoveries'

Eva Steynen.Deviation(s) was founded in 2013. The purpose is to show and promote contemporary art. Situated in the upcoming east-side of Antwerp, on the ground floor of a 19th century mansion with a garden, the gallery is known as a nice place to make discoveries. Eva Steynen works closely with a small group of mid-career and emerging artists, Belgian based and international, and presents an annual program of solo shows, performances, artist editions, salons and thematic group projects. 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.


Building a sustainable trust-based relation between artists and gallerist, the latter being a care-taker for the arts, the purpose is 'to grow well together'. To aim and think together by organizing and creating a connection between artists, gallery, collectors, curators and art lovers. The commercial aspects of a gallery may never invade the artistic process, hence Eva Steynen.Deviation(s) distinguishes itself by rather risk-taking and curatorial shows often with a museal character.


Eva Steynen.Deviation(s) is a member of Antwerp Art and co-organiser of BORGER, a dynamic group of galleries and art institutions in the north and east district of Antwerp.
