About

Irene Schaudies started ACHAA in 2006 as a consultancy and editorial services bureau specializing in the arts. Originally conceived as an acronym (A Consultancy for the History of Art and Architecture), ACHAA also means ‘good’ in Hindi — an allusion to the bureau’s high standards of quality as well as the founder’s experience with and expertise in contemporary Indian art.

ACHAA projects  gallery space was launched 1 September 2018 in the iconic Résidence Elsdonck 2 (1935) by Léon Stynen, one of Belgium’s premier modernist architects. Located in Wilrijk, a leafy suburb just a stone’s throw away from Middelheim, Antwerp’s renowned outdoor sculpture museum, the gallery brings challenging work by artists from Belgium and abroad.
