our story

20 years ago, Minneke Van Campen founded VCRB Gallery, then known as Galerie Van Campen & Rochtus, together with her business partner Luc Rochtus and husband Erwin Buys. Erwin has always been a supportive, driving force behind the scenes while still working on his own career.

As the gallery approached its 20th anniversary, they decided it was time for something new. Erwin started working in the gallery fulltime and their youngest daughter Louise fulfilled her dream of joining the family business. 
They found an old warehouse smack in the middle of the Museum District in Antwerp, revamped the place and introduced the next chapter: Vcrb gallery and The Platform by vcrb. 

VCRB Gallery continues to bring you high-quality contemporary, figurative art by national and international artists. At the core, our selection of artists is all about métier and emotion. Each piece we show, moves/touches us in one way or another. 

With our 22 years experience, VCRB Galery has learned a lot about the artist as a human being. One by one, they are extraordinary people from whom we have learned a great deal. It is our mission to let these precious people create and to let the viewers, the art lovers, enjoy their dazzling beauties. It is with great pleasure that we work hard on this every day, establishing contacts at home and abroad to provide our artists with opportunities to bring their work to the right audience nationally and internationally.

It is the place to be for young talents who are at the start of their art careers and who want to amaze the world with innovative art. /The Platform is not just an exhibition space, but also a place for interesting encounters and an inspiring cross-pollination between up-and-coming talent and renowned artists who exhibit in the gallery.
