She looks great!
Do we know why or the purpose of this visit? Did she open the exhibition?

As I wrote Mathilde visited the exhibition, she did not open it. The exhibition runs from May 22 till September 23, so it's already in its "final phase" ;) There are several reasons for Mathilde's attendance - Belgian museums have lent artworks by Rubens from their collection for the exhibition, Rubens has lived in Antwerp in different stages of his life and according to the official website Belgian art historians and members of the Fund Rubenianum managed by the King Baudouin Foundation are involved in exhibition.
