Antwerp is widely known for its contemporary art scene. With artists, galleries and artistic initiatives that have international resonance, the city has been a magnet for artists from all over the world for many years. In 2021, at the request of the city of Antwerp, M HKA started The Antwerp City Collection: a dynamic collection of contemporary visual art. 

The M HKA advises the city of Antwerp to acquire works by local and international artists with a focus on targeted historical catch-up movements, young artists living and working in Antwerp, and key artists from the Antwerp galleries.

The collection is constantly growing through annual purchases that remain on long-term loan at M HKA. With The City Collection, Antwerp not only supports the galleries and the M HKA, but also the artists who want their work to be included in an international context.
