They took to creating works “on the borderline”. This exhibition presents a small number of works from the collection of the Province of Hainaut, by Michel François, Wim Delvoye, Méret Oppenheim, Gilbert & George, Maarten Baas, and Marcel Marïen.

During the Autumn 2017, the ADAM – Brussels Design Museum will host the exhibition Tribute to Componibili, realized in collaboration with the Kartell Museo (Milan) to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of this iconic piece of 60’s design.

This new type of furniture was designed in 1967 by Anna Castelli Ferrieri ( 1920 – 2006 ) and they were the first modular and stackable interior design objects in ABS, a type of plastic used for the first time.. The Componibili responded to the new needs of that time as it was a very functional product which fitted into any context and bore out that concept of modularity, becoming a ‘leitmotif’ lasting down through the following decades.

The exhibition tells the history of Componibili from an emotional viewpoint and personal interpretations by designers as Ron Arad, Nendo, Philippe Starck, Mario Bellini, Ferruccio Laviani,..The Brussels edition of the exhibition will be enriched by the view of Belgian designers on this iconic piece.

From the fifties to the Moscow Olympic games (1980), the exhibition will feature iconic pieces of the Soviet lifestyle, examples of graphic and industrial design, technical drawings and prototypes made by Soviet designers from the Moscow Design Museum and private collections.

The exhibition is divided into sections, each representing a certain aspect of a Soviet citizen’s life and material culture: childhood and leisure, sports and public events, visual communication and packaging design, furniture and household products, precision engineering and industrial production, as well as unique projects of the All-Union Research Institute of Technical Aesthetics (VNIITE). Now, when Russian design of the 21st century is being formed it is important to look back at the achievements of decades past and unveil the names of the designers who shaped the lifestyle of Soviet people.

Place de Belgique - 1020 Laeken map 02/475 47 64

Exhibition in cooperation with Wallonia-Brussels Design-Mode (WBDM) as part of the biennale in contemporary design of the ADAM. ‘Domestic Tales’ invites to look at design in a different way, hustling the dichotomy between subject and object. A tale for children, which, thanks to an open staging and interactive animations, explains the importance of design and its cultural value. But above all, an experience that allows us to better understand the objects that surround us, in our homes and in our cities, which, as the characters in a story, have meaning and give meaning to life.

This exhibition is a tribute to life, ours and that of the design objects: everyday interfaces, custodians of valuable legacies of the past, social and aesthetic experiences, production models and sustainable products, vectors of innovative scenarios for a better future.

ADAM – Brussels Design Museum

Place de Belgique - 1020 Laeken map 02/475 47 64

Within the framework of the programme 2018, ADAM – Brussels Design Museum will be to hosting a tribute to Ettore Sottsass, realized in collaboration with the Kartell Museo and shown during the Autumn and Winter 2018. This exhibition will be part of the Brussels Design September festival.
The exhibition “Kartell. A Tribute to Ettore Sottsass” will present a comprehensive overview of the project by Ettore Sottsass work for Kartell.

The exhibition will be mainly focused on the collection of objects he designed for Kartell in 2004. In 2014 Kartell paid tribute to the master of design Ettore Sottsass with a collection of original projects he designed 10 years earlier but that had never been created. With six vases, two stools and a lamp, the collection expresses a marked affinity with the aesthetics of Memphis, the famous design collective founded by Sottsass.

With post-futurist volumes, the stools and vases have bright colours and express many aspects of Sottsass’ approach to design. The same colour palette is repeated in the “Daisy” hanging lamp with an unusual application of rectangular plastic shapes to a central disk.
The exhibition is also enriched by references to the environment created by Sottsass on the occasion of the exhibition “Italy the New Domestic landscape” at MoMA (1972) and to the collection “Kartell goes Sottsass. A Tribute to Memphis”: chairs by Philippe Starck, Patricia Urquiola and Piero Lissoni covered with fabrics designed by Michele de Lucchi, Nathalie du Pasquier, and Ettore Sottsass himself and created in collaboration with Memphis.

ADAM – Brussels Design Museum

Place de Belgique - 1020 Laeken map 02/475 47 64

Nightclubs and discos are the epitome of contemporary culture. They merge architecture and interior design with sound, light, fashion, furnishing, graphics and visual effects to create a modern Gesamtkunstwerk. As place of cultural experimentation for subcultures and avant-garde, they question the established codes of social life and offer individual and collective freedom by playing with different identities and realities.
If the 20th century was the age of pop culture, the nightclub was probably its most powerful design expression. Night Fever is the first exhibition to examine the design history of the nightclub. It will feature exhibits from design, art, architecture, music and media including films and original photographs, flyers, posters, records covers, models, furniture, magazines as well as 1:1 installations that will immerse the visitors in a journey of creative experimentation.

The Plasticarium Collection

ADAM – Brussels Design Museum

Place de Belgique - 1020 Laeken map 02/475 47 64

The ADAM [Brussels Design Museum] is installed in part of Brussels International Trade Mart [BITM], and has a surface area of around 5,000m², almost half of which is to be devoted to the permanent collection of the former Plasticarium, which will keep its name. It comprises more then 2,000 pieces ranging from everyday objects to works of art via designer items. A stool, a desk, an alarm clock, a lamp... we tend to forget that not so long ago plastic was everywhere.
As there will not be sufficient space in the ADAM to present the collection in its entirety, the display will be rotated on an annual basis. This will offer visitors a different experience with every new visit to the museum.

AEROPLASTICS , Mind@Art + The Chapel

Rue Washington, 186 - 1050 Ixelles map +00 32 2 537 22 02

AEROPLASTICS contemporary occupies a peculiar place in the art gallery scene in Brussels. The dichotomy of its unusual exhibition space is a fine expression of the policy Jerome Jacobs is pursuing with Aeroplastics, where the spectacular often rubs shoulders with the intimate, no matter how extreme , though containing some poetry or bizarreness.
Alternating between group and monographic exhibitions, the gallery is confronting established artists with emerging and mid-career ones, giving preference to works that develop their own direct language and offer immediate visual accessibility.
Among the subjects dissected at Aeroplastics, the mechanisms of the artworld and its immediate surroundings occupy an important position, as do the multiple facets of the great "Human Comedy" : sexuality, individual or collective violence, the transformations and limitations of corporality, the excesses of our consumer society. Recently, the gallery has developed its programming even more towards the ever growing ecological issues, the socio-economical stereotypes and the religious volatility.

After having occupied a peculiar space for many years, Aeroplastics has decided to take it to the next level now: They become a nomad art gallery that will occupy exceptional places in Brussels, or elsewhere.
For their first stop, they move into a special place: a former chapel in the heart of the Tenbosch neighbourhood in Brussels.

This new contemporary art space will be opening on April 19th, 2017.

Albert Baronian

Rue Isidore Verheyden, 2 - 1050 Ixelles map 02-512.92.95

Albert Baronian opened his first gallery in 1973 and immediately enjoyed international success thanks to the presentation of Arte Povera artists Alighiero e Boetti, Mario Merz, Giulio Paolini and Gilberto Zorio. Later, as the president of the Gallery's Association, the Brussels Art fair took a more international turn whilst under his direction. He sees the responsibility of the gallery as threefold : to work for the long term development of each artists' career while acting as a liaison to international galleries and museums as well as placing works in collections ; to create an historical archive for each artist ; and to act as an accessible public space in which the exhibitions become an exemplary gesture of the power of subjectivity to the audience at large.
The program is dedicated to contemporary art as well as important artistic movements and artists that have defined the last forty years.

Boghossian Foundation - Villa Empain

Avenue Franklin Roosevelt, 67 - 1050 Ixelles map +32 (0)2-627.52.30

The artist Chun Kwang Young is the subject of the first solo presentation to date at the Boghossian Foundation. In congruence with the foundation’s focus on art and dialogue between cultures, Chun’s work emerges from a complex group of forms and influences, even as it achieves an elemental unity. The eponymous exhibition Chun Kwang Young takes place in a variety of settings across the Villa Empain, from the central salon to a series of galleries to outdoors, demonstrating the variety his wall-based and sculptural works comprise.

The exhibition provides major examples of Chun’s work, from 1998 to the present. Early in his career, Chun focused on painting, influenced by Abstract Expressionism; since the mid1990s, he has evolved a holistic practice that incorporates a traditional product known in Korea as hanji: a paper using mulberry bark that has been produced in Korea since the ninth century for packaging, writing, printmaking, insulation, and to hold medicine. Triangular packets of hanji, in particular, have become a constitutive element of the precise and meticulous technique Chun has developed.



Chun Kwang Young was born in 1944 in Hongcheon County in South Korea. He received his BFA from Hong-Ik University, Seoul in 1968 and his MFA from Philadelphia College of Art in 1971. In 2001, Chun was named artist of the year by the South Korean National Museum of Contemporary Art. In 2009, Chun received the Presidential Prize from the Korean Ministry of Culture. His work is represented in many public and private collections around the world.

The exhibition Chun Kwang Young is curated by Asad Raza, the Boghossian Foundation’s artistic director.

Nowadays most art, design and photography is portraying perfection. Contemporary popular culture is drowning under a tidal wave of superficiality and over-perfection. Posed, polished and controlled. As if it were a reflection of our endless search for clarity and calmness and an antidote for the chaos in our lives. Technology allows us to refine the desired illusion of perfection even more.

c-o-m-p-o-s-i-t-e

Rue du Marché aux Porcs, 10 - 1000 Brussels map

c-o-m-p-o-s-i-t-e is a nonprofit contemporary art space that aims at elaborating projects which are multiple and variable in character, by providing a platform for support and collaboration.
Through the activities conducted, we approach questions about art practice, and how, within it, composite configurations emerge, bind together, transform, stabilise, reiterate. Without making cuts beforehand ; neither elementary, nor sequential, neither historical, nor disciplinary. We propose to consider together the capacity of art and its practices, in a wide sense, to draw together im/material possibles. c-o-m-p-o-s-i-t-e makes place for the fabrication of such possibles.

The propositions that follow from these questions can take the form of exhibitions, short-term or longer collaborations, co-productions, dialogues, lectures or conversations between actors concerned. With these, we aim at soliciting for im/material, affective and/or cognitive transformations by the invited actors, as they are effected during the encounters.

CAB is a private centre dedicated to contemporary art. It promotes that genre by holding art projects in a splendid Art Deco exhibition space located not far from Flagey. CAB supports artists by giving them visibility in a place that’s neither an institution nor a gallery. It organises two projects a year, from September to December and from April to June, inviting a curator from a museum or gallery, Belgian or international. With its projects, CAB wants to encourage dialogue and inform the public about the emerging art scene.

The installation revolves around the phenomenon of knots in vibrated granular chains, an effect of random movements caused by the balanced interplay of radiation (sound) and gravity. In physics, granular chains are used as a model to study the behavior of string-like objects such as DNA, RNA, or polymer macro-molecules that often become entangled.

What did Brussels look like 50 years ago? From June to September BOZAR will be taking you back in time with an exhibition about the Plaizier publishing house. Since 1977 this Brussels publishing house has built up an image library including vintage postcards, prints, calendars and books. Architectural gems and urban transformations are all portrayed, together with items that illustrate the resolute path pursued by the publishing couple Wijnand and Mieke Plaizier. Their love for the Belgian capital is evident from every image. In addition to their purely documentary value, the photographs also bear witness to the way in which people remember and appreciate Brussels and give form to the collective memory.

Klein, famous for his ultramarine monochromes, produced works that are interpretations of his ideas on spiritual infinitude and his penchant for mystic rituals. His exceptional visual pieces and spectacular performances were forerunners of the happening and body art. The exhibition includes masterpieces not seen before and rarely-exhibited works.

BOZAR and visit.brussels are bringing you a summer full of hip-hop. Originating in the streets of New York in the 1970s, hiphop grew worldwide to become the dominant phenomenon in urban and youth culture. Successive generations of young people in Brussels have been a part of this diverse movement, enriching
it in their own way. Hip-hop has continued to evolve through its four favourite forms: dance, graffiti, Djing and rap.
As part of MIXITY.brussels 2017, a new exhibition provides an overview of 35 years of creativity in the capital. It not only highlights the major periods in the history of Brussels hip-hop but immerses the visitor in the hip-hop experience. In addition to archives and objects you will meet the people from the hip-hop world itself, through various workshops, performances, battles and meetings. An urban programme for the whole of Brussels, in association with youth and neighbourhood centres.

Latin American Cartographies

Centre for Fine Arts - BOZAR

Rue Ravenstein, 23 - 1000 Brussels map 02-507.82.00

This exhibition is a visual laboratory, a journey into the realities of a vibrant continent through different points of view and mediums: from video to sounds or installations. Artists, cultural platforms and activists are today at the forefront of generating new perspectives around violence, learning, memory, resilience or mobility. What critical role can they play in their urban contexts? In El Salvador, they organised a football game between the former army and the guerrilla members. Peruvian activists display the city as a non-formal learning space. A Mexican collective critically explores how a Belgian architect contributed to Medellín’s urban development in the 1920s. Brazil based artists propose a new city questioning waste and water management, accessibility and mobility. From Colombia, activists and artists place the issue of the air at the heart of resilient cities. It is part of the EU project ‘LAIC – Culture and Arts Supporting Social Cohesion in Latin American Cities’, developed by Interarts and BOZAR and funded by DG DEVCO of the European Commission.Works by The Fire Theory, Bijari, La Ciudad Verde, EscueLab.org, LAALvaca, Método Salgari, Oscar Leone Moyano, Dália Rosenthal, Federico Martínez Montoya, Fernando Escobar, Charlotte Charbonnel, Deúniti, Goto, Mister Basurama, Cine de Plano, Guillermo Araujo, Maximiliano Nulchis Graffitti, Gris Perú, EPA!, minipimer.tv, Cartografías del Azar, Regina José Galindo, Humberto Vélez, Raquel van Haver.Curator: Antonio José GuzmanScientific Committee: Paul Dujardin, Mercedes Giovinazzo, Toni Cots (LAIC Project Coordinator), Sophie Lauwers and Conrado Uribe (LAIC expert)

After a particularly successful exhibition on Jules Wabbes, BOZAR turns the spotlight on another great post-war Belgian designer: Ado Chale. Born in Brussels, he is a mineralogist and blacksmith, who uses crystals or petrified wood in his works of art, and approaches making furniture like a craftsman rather than as a designer. This very first retrospective outlines the career and the world of Ado Chale, through carefully selected pieces of furniture and objects, such as his famous Goutte d’eau bronze table, inspired by pre-Columbian art. To coincide with the exhibition, publishing house Aparté is bringing out a new important book on Chale. An opportunity for the general public to get acquainted with this internationally renowned artist who combines craftsmanship with innovation.

Facing the Future, the film

Centre for Fine Arts - BOZAR

Rue Ravenstein, 23 - 1000 Brussels map 02-507.82.00

This documentary covers the traveling exhibition Facing the Future. Art in Europe 1945-1968 as presented at the ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medien Karlsruhe after passing by BOZAR last summer and before going to the Pushkin Museum in Moscow. Peter Weibel, director of ZKM and co-curator of the exhibition, guides you through the exhibition and explores the development of art in both in Eastern and Western Europe after the war. Today, we know that the dominant model of art history for this period is a product of the Cold War: the socialist realism of the communist East opposing abstract expressionism symbolizing the free West. For this reason, the exhibition attempts to reinterpret the development of art in Europe from a pan-European perspective. We (re)discover a European cultural space where many new art forms, as media art and conceptual art, were created simultaneously on both sides of the Iron Curtain.The exhibition presented in this documentary is part of ‘Trauma & Revival’, a European project on cultural relations between Eastern and Western Europe, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the EU.

Charles Riva Collection

Rue de la Concorde, 21 - 1050 Ixelles map + 32 (0)2-503.04.98

For the first time, Charles Riva Collection presents an exhibition dedicated to the American artist Frank Stella. After several retrospectives devoted to him, his art is now coming to the collection with his monumental works.

His work makes reference to his contact with the New York avant-garde and also contains traces of the pop, abstract, and expressionist movements.

Beyond these seemingly vivid, joyful works, a darker story can be made out. Presenting his “Polish Village” series, the artist’s interest in topics linked to the Holocaust and the loss of the Jewish way of life in Europe are here evoked through an abstract vocabulary.

Basically, my works gravitate around my family and close friends, and the stories I invent out of them. The randomness of our lives inspires me to imagine and create scripts which could be taken from movies, but which never attempt to become real ones.

Out of a real movie, the main line is about the narration in the heart of it; my work would be more about everything that comes around: the scripts, the casts, the film stills and some orphan scenes.

I wouldn’t say I’m completely just a photographer – either a movie-maker -, I am just trying through my work to explore all the possibilities to tell stories out of everyday lives. All the popular culture, the things I see in life, the messages I receive, the websites I visit, the people I meet, the Internet, all of these participate to feed my imagination.

There are images that express more than words, that go ahead of them, that elude them, or, more rarely, that scramble them. There are processes that elude the reasoning reason that tries to classify, identify, reduce or label them. There are types of beauty that eschew prettiness.

The paradox of Luma’s work is that it appears nevertheless to be involved in a phase, or more precisely in an attempt that is certainly not definitive, to reconfigure or put into order. Even perturbing words placed close to, or in her images, cannot change this, and their uncomfortable beauty nevertheless retains, like a thread running through it, an instinctive need to sniff the
prettiness half-buried in things.

Alone, or with Babé, or with the RAZZIA or the LA CAMARADERIE collectives, in planned books or essential but marginal exhibitions, her trajectory appears, on the surface, to resemble that of others:
it gropes its way and rebels, reshuffles the cards and, as soon as it becomes familiar, feels the need to distance itself again. But it drags with its unique music, on a few distant words, which, without any claims to renew or revolutionise, turns looks into shocks and turns what is human into a shared magnetic field or a forsaken wasteland.

Emmanuel d’Autreppe. Translation: Chris Bourne.

Luma’s work obtained an honourable mention from the jury at “Propositions d’artistes 2016” organised by Contretype.

Cities have always been my favourite playgrounds. Even before I got started in photography, I dreamed about New York. As my career progressed, the need to visit this great city became more and more pressing.

This project began during my first visit to New York, in the spring of 2014, during which I did a course in analogue photographic printmaking at the Griffin Editions laboratory. Most of my benchmarks at the time came from Street Photography, and so this first visit was a sort of photographic pilgrimage.

I returned to New York in the summer of the same year, this time freed from the commitments of my first trip, but still with the same basic objective as a photographer: to make myself completely available so that I could make the photographic equivalent of working drawings that went back to basics. Without any constraints, I was finally able to wander free through those streets as I had longed to do for so long. This project is thus the fruit of my first two photographic trips, which confirmed to me that New York was an excellent pretext for developing my approach.

Pierre Toussaint. Translation: Chris Bourne.

Pierre Toussaint's work received a Mention from the jury of the “2016 Artists’ Propositions” contest
at Contretype.

Dvir Gallery

Rue de la Régence, 67 - 1000 Brussels map +32 2 513 69 90

Rue de la Régence is definitely one of the liveliest gallery hubs in Brussels. Also Dvir Gallery from Israel chose this neighbourhood to settle in Brussels, in the space that was previously occupied by Catherine Bastide.
The gallery was established in 1982 by Dvir Intrator, who wanted to promote contemporary Israeli art. In the mid-1990s, the gallery started to represent international artists such as Douglas Gordon and Lawrence Weiner.
Gallery co-director Yotam Shalit-Intrator explained that the decision to expand was a natural progression of the gallery’s activities. After combining their three spaces around Tel Aviv into a five-story building, where the gallery is still housed today, it was time to grow outside of Tel Aviv.

Fondation A Stichting

Avenue Van Volxem, 304 - 1190 Forest map + 32 (0)2 502 38 78

In October 2012, the “Fondation A Stichting” opened its doors in south Brussels on the site of the former Bata factories. Created upon the initiative of Astrid Ullens de Schooten, and recognized as promoting the public interest, it has a vocation to support the creation, knowledge, and preservation of the photographic image. Nothing exists any longer that does not seem to have to be attested by the image. Yet the idea of recording the real using photography does not go without saying. What happens to our capacity to see and to discern when, in their overabundance and their virtual immediacy, the images surrounding us are rapidly and powerfully becoming more complicated. The foundation’s project consists in exploring the stakes and contradictions of the image-document, putting into question this world in which all is visible. It organizes three temporary exhibitions each year, accompanied with workshops on reading and writing the image designed for youths and children. High-school and university students are invited to come and engage in dialogue with the artists during their visits, Premières Découvertes.

Galerie valérie Bach ​/ la patinoire Royale

Rue Veydt, 15 - 1060 Saint-Gilles map +32 (0)2 533 03 90

On the occasion of Brussels Gallery Weekend's 10th edition, Valérie Bach Gallery is pleased to present Koen Vanmechelen's first solo exhibition at the gallery. His work has already been presented by the gallery during the collective exhibition "Force of Nature" curated by James Putnam in 2016 as well as in the current group show "Summer in the city" that will end on July 20. This exhibition entitled "Vision of The Owl" is also curated by James Putnam.
The title proposes that this show can be perceived through the eyes of the owl whose vision is peripheral. Although it can only look forwards, the owl is able to turn its head nearly 360 degrees, which has led to a folklore belief that it has supernatural powers. Its ability to predict weather conditions has also inspired people to think that it can foretell the future or that when an owl is sighted it means a change is coming. In the context of this exhibition, the owl evokes associations with myth and magic but in a wider sense reflects the climate of uncertainty surrounding the current state of world affairs. 'Vision of the Owl' is about conflict and how our society is dealing with it, a theme that Koen Vanmechelen explores using metaphors he has drawn from his vast experience of working with the animal world.

Impersonate is an installation that addresses the social interactions of social media and their algorithmic nature. Its absurdity highlights the possible uses, abuses and benefits of fully automated interactions.

Impersonate shows an exchange between two chatbots – artificial intelligences able to simulate how a human would behave as a conversational partner. Instead of answering in text, both bots reply using short video extracts found after a text search in YouTube subtitles.

The artificial intelligence is embodied by the characters shown in the video. They become the chatbot's puppets, hence the title "Impersonate".

The exhibition maps the narratives (personal, social, historical and community) that shape a young person's consciousness and perception, from the toddler age to late adolescence – from one's first steps in the world to the notion of responsibility and of an ethical choice being born in the mind. The exhibition also samples the variety of genres in video art, from computer animation to cartoon, documentary to fiction, photo projections to video installation.

This exhibition is part of the Reports from badlands project organised by Zsolt Kozma.

Expo : 18 July - 1 September 2017
Open on Tuesday - Friday, 13:00 - 18:00 + on appointment

Boulevard de Waterloo, 31 - 1000 Brussels map +32 (0)2 504 80 70

Founded in 1971, the iselp – higher institute for the study of the language of the plastic arts – is a place where contemporary art is approached from various, mutually enriching points of view. This plurality is what makes it different: the monstration, discussion, research, mediation and publishing activities take into account the great wealth of the current art scene. The iselp puts on several exhibitions each year (one-man exhibitions by national and international artists, group or themed exhibitions), which follow the topical relevance of contemporary creative work by giving priority to young Belgian artists. At the same time, the institute is developing an artists’ residency programme that focuses on research, innovation and exchange. The iselp encourages critical debate on contemporary art by offering conferences, screenings, symposiums, meetings, readings, guided tours, cultural trips and educational activities.

MANIERA commissions architects and artists to develop limited edition furniture series. As architects often have a close relationship with the visual arts and artists are often inspired by the spatial environment, MANIERA intends to crystalize these proximities into new design proposals. More than just furniture, the objects issued by MANIERA are a deliberate search for collisions between the realms of architecture, design and art.

Michel Rein

Rue Washington, 51 A - 1050 Ixelles map 02-640.26.40

After spending several years collecting works of art, each purchased as and when they appealed to him, Michel Rein decided to open a gallery in Tours in 1992. There, he exhibits the work of prestigious artists such as Philippe Mayaux, Chen Zen, Allan Sekula and Daniel Buren. After seven years, Michel Rein closed the gallery in Tours and, in 2000, opened a space in Paris. The list of represented artists was added to with artists who have since then gained renown, such as ORLAN, Jean-Pierre Bertrand, Saâdane Afif and Didier Marcel, as well as young artists including Armand Jalut and Raphaël Zarka. In 2013, Michel Rein opened a new space in Brussels with the desire to offer his artists a new market and give the gallery a European dimension.

Michel Rein

Rue Washington, 51 A - 1050 Ixelles map 02-640.26.40

After spending several years collecting works of art, each purchased as and when they appealed to him, Michel Rein decided to open a gallery in Tours in 1992. There, he exhibits the work of prestigious artists such as Philippe Mayaux, Chen Zen, Allan Sekula and Daniel Buren. After seven years, Michel Rein closed the gallery in Tours and, in 2000, opened a space in Paris. The list of represented artists was added to with artists who have since then gained renown, such as ORLAN, Jean-Pierre Bertrand, Saâdane Afif and Didier Marcel, as well as young artists including Armand Jalut and Raphaël Zarka. In 2013, Michel Rein opened a new space in Brussels with the desire to offer his artists a new market and give the gallery a European dimension.

MLF | Marie-Laure Fleisch

Rue Saint-Georges, 13 - 1050 Ixelles map +32 2 648 21 01

MLF l Marie-Laure Fleisch is pleased to announce Romanian artist Alex Mirutziu's first exhibition in Belgium, This, like..., opening September 7, 2017 in conjunction with Brussels Gallery Weekend. Employing performance, drawing, poetry and sculpture, Mirutziu looks to art to answer the fundamental questions of life – “Who are we” and “How do we perceive reality”. Inspired by philosophers such as Graham Harman and Timothy Morton who question how we use objects to interpret the world around us, Mirutziu looks to anchor the contemplation of our being in the physical world. He then enriches this basis with political histories, personal letters and the natural world, exposing how each person confronts their own existence. For his current exhibition, born from a sense of admiration and camaraderie for Iris Murdoch and an interest in the possibility for gestures to become objects, Mirutziu has created a series of drawings and sculptures which draw our attention to the moments when our attempts to grasp meaning manifest themselves physically. Whether we express ourselves through poetry, conversation, or writing, the relationship between that which is said and that which is left unsaid is extremely important. During the short period when we try to wrap our heads around complicated concepts or grand ideas, what we do during our moments of silence are very revealing.

Using the Irish philosopher and novelist Iris Murdoch as an embodiment of a universal phenomenon, Mirutziu looks into the construction and de-construction of a brilliant mind that is searching for ways to comprehend and communicate the intricacies of the world we live in. Murdoch has the particularity of being an extremely prolific writer, dedicating her life to novels, philosophy and also personal correspondences with a large number of friends and lovers. Later in her life she developed Alzheimer’s, losing the capacity to navigate her own thoughts and witnessing the degeneration of her own mind. No longer able to carry on writing due to a loss of memory, Murdoch found herself in an undefined mental space, where she was unable to connect her present reality to other points of reference.

When grappling to express the ideas in one’s own mind and create meaning, we often give our internal struggle corporal form, through the lowering of our gaze or through gestures which seem to attempt to create a motor which will speed up the firing of the neurons in our brain. Using Iris Murdoch as a muse, Mirutziu gives physical weight to these temporal movements, creating drawings and sculptures which represent the unique ways a body expresses its mental exertion. For example, if Iris Murdoch could form concrete objects with her own body language, what would they look like? Or, more broadly, what are the possible physical manifestations of the mind struggling to place one's ideas in the framework of our society or even in the trajectory of one's own thoughts? Using the space between Murdoch’s body and her hands when she gesticulates, the movement of her eyes when she pauses to regroup her thoughts, or the way she shifts her body, Mirutziu creates artworks which clarify mental processes through palpable forms, underlying the relationship between one’s intellect and one’s body.

NICC

Rue Lambert Crickx - 1070 Anderlecht map 0485-62.51.34

The International Cultural Centre (ICC) in Antwerp was the first official institution for contemporary art in Flanders.

Now established in Brussels, NICC creates spaces for interaction between visual artists, institutions and society, with specific attention to the position of the visual artist, on a local, regional and international level.
NICC plays an active role in the support and self-realisation of the professional visual artist. Its aim is to function as a first contact and mouthpiece for visual artists, striving for a qualitative social framework enabling the visual artist to develop his/her practice in a professional and autonomous way.

The gallery often chooses to work with curators. Hence, its opening show – which brought together a varied mix of artists, from Jack Lavender to Henning Bohl and Ben Vautier – was curated by Rob Tufnell.

On display are paintings, sculptures and installations that incorporate mirrors or reflecting materials, as well as artworks that hold a mirror up to the audience, encouraging introspection, critical self-awareness and reflective thought.

With a nod to the eponymous comedy film from 1936 and Michael Jackson’s famous song, this thematic exhibition extends over three floors. Combining recently created artworks with seminal, historical exponents of arte povera, Conceptualism and Neo-Geo, it covers a wide array of topics such as time and space, matter and mind, and individual and collective identity. Concurrently, it raises intricate questions about art, society and the human body.

Tomás Saraceno - 'Many suns and worlds'

Tomás Saraceno
Vanhaerents Art Collection

Rue Anneessens, 29 - 1000 Brussels map + 32 (0)2-511.50.77

Rare are the artists who have published papers with scientists because the science they had to feed on was too limited! To extend the frontier of art, Tómas first had to push the frontier of [...] science. – Bruno Latour, 2016.

Many suns and worlds is Tomás Saraceno’s first solo exhibition in Belgium. Designed especially for the project space of the Vanhaerents Art Collection, this exhibition features a new site-specific installation by the artist, as a part of his ambitious Cloud Cities project.

Tomás Saraceno’s most recent installations are experimental by nature: they critically deploy insights coming from the scientific realm and set forth the artist’s innovative thinking about various social, political and economic themes, such as urbanism, mobility and ecology. Saraceno’s artistic projects and ideas share a distinct relationship with the works of ground-breaking architects from the fifties and sixties. An unbridled utopian vision aligns his work with that of Richard Buckminster Fuller.

The Cloud Cities’ series presents Tomás Saraceno’s futuristic vision of a modular and transnational city in the clouds as an achievement of sustainable and emancipatory building practices. The utopic realisation projects a flying city that is slowly gliding through the sky in cloud-like formations of innumerable coequal structures, powered only by thermodynamic atmospheric forces and cosmic energy flows coming for the Sun. The exhibition Many suns and worlds continues to explore the global energy circulation and esteems to trigger collective imagination, so needed currently due to the prevailing ecological rift.

Tomás Saraceno was born in 1973 in Tucumán, Argentina. He currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
Originally trained as an architect, Tomás Saraceno is now widely recognized as one of today’s most visionary artists. His work aspires to bridge the gap between art and science. The artist’s interests are as broad and multifaceted as the subjects he explores in his works: he draws inspiration from both his own and other people’s research on spider webs, atmosphere, clouds, soap bubbles and more.
Informed by the worlds of natural sciences and engineering, Saraceno creates large-scale installations that can even be accessed by the public at times

Wiels - Contemporary art centre

Avenue Van Volxem, 354 - 1190 Forest map + 32 (0)2-340.00.50

To mark its 10th anniversary, WIELS is looking resolutely ahead with an exhibition that not only fills its own spaces but also those of neighbouring BRASS and Métropole. Anticipating the long-awaited establishment of a contemporary art museum in Brussels, The Absent Museum poses the question of what such an institution should be like in a multicultural city today that is also the capital of Europe. What relationship can there be between local historical awareness and the aesthetic engagements of artists confronted with the paradoxes of globalisation? How can a museum be part of the social space? How can it give a presence to what is absent, to the blind spots of history? How, too, can it give an account of the growing hybridisation of practices? With The Absent Museum, the Kunstenfestivaldesarts is joining forces with WIELS to create a cross-disciplinary and contemporary artistic space in Brussels.

Xavier Hufkens

Rue Saint-Georges, 6 - 1050 Ixelles map 02-639.67.30

Xavier Hufkens is one of the most influential galleries for contemporary art in Europe. When it opened in 1987, Xavier Hufkens concentrated on promising artists at that time, such as Felix-Gonzalez-Torres, Anthony Gormley and Jessica Stockholder. In 1992, its move to a 19th-century house renovated by Robbrecht Daem and Marie-Josée Van Hee coincided with the representation of a selection of established artists. Today, with thirty or so artists of different generations (including Richard Artschwager, Louise Bourgeois, Willem de Kooning, Adam Fuss, and Hans Op de Beeck), Hufkens runs a varied programme of exhibitions with solo exhibitions by the gallery’s artists and group shows and specific projects. The gallery offers a unique combination of paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, video and installation work. In 2013, the gallery opened another space on the same street. This new space was designed by Swiss architect Harry Gugger. An eclectic but nonetheless very clear vision underlies all the gallery’s activities.
