About the gallery
PLUS-ONE Gallery is a contemporary art gallery that represents and exhibits Belgian and international artists. Together with the artist, strategies are defined to bring the body of work to a new level. Occasionally, the gallery opt for the inclusion of older works and artist estates in exhibitions. The gallery aims to build long-term relations with artists, collectors, institutes and other galleries. Moving away from a conventional competition-minded gallery model and creating collaborations with the focus on shared opportunities and networks.
PLUS-ONE Gallery was founded in 2016 by Jason Poirier dit Caulier. The name '+1' stands for 'more': the gallery strives for more openness concerning collaboration, more transparency, more Antwerp, more adventure and long-term thinking.
The gallery is located in two areas in Antwerp.
The location at 'New South', a space shared with Gallery Sofie Van de Velde, presents a strong and diverse exhibition programme. Both galleries not only share a space, but also a philosophy. While keeping their own perspective on artistic choices, they believe in a positive and transparent attitude of collaboration. Being one of the first to settle in this new neighbourhood, the gallery also seeks opportunities for the integration of more art at 'New South'.
In 2020, the gallery opened a new gallery at the 'South' of Antwerp, only a few yards away from the other gallery. An alternating space between PLUS-ONE Gallery & Gallery Sofie Van de Velde, with a more concentrated and intimate story and a focus on solo exhibitions.
