Transit art gallery

Transit was founded in 1988 in Leuven, Belgium by Dirk Vanhecke and Bert de Leenheer. The gallery moved to Mechelen in 1998.
Transit exhibits and promotes contemporary art.
The gallery is housed in an art déco building (1934) where art works are shown in an informal context.
Transit believes that every way of expression that an artist chooses can be a valid way, therefore different ways of expression (painting, drawing, photography, performance, sculpture, installation, video, audio, concept, ...) can find their place in the gallery and in the office that also serves as permanent exhibition space.

Transit werd opgericht in Leuven in 1988 door Dirk Vanhecke en Bert de Leenheer. In 1998 verhuisde de galerie naar Mechelen.
Transit toont en promoot internationale aktuele kunst en organiseert tweemaandelijks nieuwe tentoonstellingen.
De galerie is deel van een art deco gebouw uit 1934.
In deze woning én in de tuin kan de bezoeker permanent verschillende werken ontdekken van de kunstenaars die sedert 1988 in Transit exposeerden.
