Dear Shaded Viewers and dear Diane,
A.F. Vandevorst launched AKTION, their first guerillia store, showing (and selling) their combined collections in a restful setting, near Antwerp's Fine Arts Museum. While the snow fell slowly, the guests (some coming as far as Barcelona) drank hot spiced wine served from hospital fields tents pitched outside. The shop will remain in its current home until the end of March 2010 and then pop up in a location near you.
Open: Thurs-Mon – 12AM until 8PM
