Office Baroque is a contemporary art gallery that was incorporated in Antwerp in 2007. The gallery represents both emerging and more established European and American artists.
From 2008 thru 2013, the gallery occupied a storefront on Lange Kievitstraat in Antwerp. With its move to the heart of Downtown Brussels in November 2013 the gallery will provide scope for a more ambitious and diverse program of exhibitions. The Brussels gallery will extend across the ground floor of a 1909 cast iron building by the Brussels architect Paul Hamesse who was part of the Art Nouveau generation. Formerly a brewery, the building has been transformed into an expansive and minimal interior flooded by natural light. The transformation of the quintessential Brussels building remains faithful to the monumental dimensions and the aesthetics of the architecture.
Office Baroque is named after one of Gordon Matta-Clark’s last remaining public interventions, untimely demolished after extensive protests in Antwerp in 1980.
