Founded in 2012 in the heart of Antwerp, Modern Shapes Gallery
is a gallery specialised in unique contemporary and midcentury
studio ceramics. Modern Shapes is as much a gallery as it is
a curated platform. A gallery, because it presents five to six
exhibitions a year, dedicated to both rising and established talent
in ceramic art. A curated platform, because it presents a very
personal and balanced selection of objects, often balancing on the
dividing line between design, art and architecture. Founder Michaël
Francken’s personal taste and unconventional passion results in
a program that combines both high quality 20th century ceramic
masters and more contemporary artists working on the balance
between abstract, sculptural and architectural work. But they all
bear witness to craftsmanship and sculptural presence. As a result,
Modern Shapes is a progressive and supportive space for emerging
and established artists and their work.
