The three-day program of Living in Colour consists of two workshops followed by the conference presenting in-depth studies which will elaborate on the aforementioned topics.

Common Ground between Visual Arts and Interior Architecture (December 5 – 21, 2019) – organized by the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp and the Faculty of Design Sciences, University of Antwerp – presenting twelve ‘encounters’ between visual arts and interior architecture, supplemented with a visiting tour in Antwerp.

The encounters illustrate the interactions between both disciplines through colour, based on the relationships between space, objects, furniture, art works, etc. A number of original iconographic material from archives, museums and private collections, as well as furniture objects, will be displayed here for the first time.
