To mark the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, the Art & Design Atomium Museum and Moscow Design Museum present a special exhibition Paper Revolution 1920 – 1930’s.
The exhibition is dedicated to the Soviet graphic design of the 1920s and 1930s. Featuring significant works of Aleksandr Rodchenko, Varvara Stepanova, Vladimir Mayakovsky and others, the exhibition showcases the visual identity of the USSR created by the Constructivist artists.
The Constructivism movement was the art in the service of the Revolution. It defined a new order and a new better life for everyone. Sharing the beliefs in the idea of a bright future, the artists became the loudspeakers of the Soviet propaganda through their creations.

An overview of a century of modern design in Belgium. Starting with art nouveau, the exhibition covers the social aspirations of the interwar avant-garde, Belgium’s ambitious participation in world fairs, educational experiments in La Cambre, the post-war design craze, and the promotion of modernist Belgian design by the Brussels Design Centre (1964-1986) under Josine des Cressonnières. Objects, graphic material, pictures, and original film footage show the multiple faces of modern design in Belgium.

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

For the 5th edition of Artview, the ADAM hosts BPS22. In the 1980s, artists began to explore the boundaries between the work of art and the everyday object, intrigued by the dual functionality of industrial design. 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.

Art & Design Atomium Museum (ADAM) - Plasticarium Collection

ADAM – Brussels Design Museum

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

The Art & Design Atomium 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.

Alice Gallery

Rue du Pays de Liège, 4 - 1000 Brussels map 02-513.33.07

“Designs and techniques for my murals are worked out in advance, and that includes weird tools I’ll need to customize or invent. I also make studio work, like canvases and sculptures. There seems to be an interesting parallel here with studio music and live shows. There’s more control indoors, to develop ideas, but then to bring this to people you need to find a way to put it on the road.”

Interview for Acehotel.com, April 2015.

Born in 1974 in San Francisco, MOMO is a real globetrotter. In addition to his studio work, he paints murals and public installations. His large-scale works have formed the bedrock of his artistic career and have taken him on an endless journey around the world from the USA, to Italy, France, The Caribbean, Mexico … The aesthetic ideas he develops in his paintings and three-dimensional installations are conceptually and aesthetically post-digital, they have the look and feel of digital paintings with their geometric compositions and the superimposition of strata traced across the surface. The work obeys an inescapable mechanical logic, imposed by the restrictions of the self-made tools, which MOMO produces to make the work. Playing with colour theory, MOMO manipulates our sensual experience of his art. The resultant graphic work has strong, vivid features composed of clean lines and pure and primary colours.

Having focused mainly in earlier chapters on the roots of dance and performance film and video, in our third and last part of STEP UP! we choose a bolder road.

In the exhibition we confront various historical choreographies with works by artists that are not linked to the world of dance or performance,
but that also breathe a similar aesthetics, position or philosophy. Did artists belonging to different disciplines and backgrounds used to work with the same semiotic language? What kind of overlaps and differences are there with regard to content, concept, as well as formal language?

Jan Dietvorst & Roy Villevoye - 'Evidence'

For almost twenty years the Dutch artists Jan Dietvorst (b. 1953) and Roy Villevoye (b. 1960) have been exploring issues as diverse as anthropological representation, the conventions of documentary filmmaking and culture as a means of adaptation and re-enactment. Though their videos are frequently considered documentaries, they explicitly distance themselves from the purposeful aspect of the genre.

EVIDENCE, their first major solo exhibition in Belgium, is not so much a retrospective, but tries to look at their work in perspective. Featuring Evidence and Showcase, two newly commissioned works that deepen a process of synthesis and analysis relating to their practices, the exhibition focuses on their audiovisual productions. Mainly two themes are investigated and dissected: the memory of World War I and the encounter with the Asmat people in the Papua province of Indonesia.

AFTER THE BATTLE (2012) condenses three films about World War I (Winter Prayers 2006, The Scrap-Iron Age, 2008, War is Over, 2011) and shows how the culture of remembrance seems a combination of mythomania, entrepreneurship, psychopathology and poetic leanings, while the recent works Voice-Over (2014), The Double (2015) and The New Dress (2016) are at the same time a trilogy of tutorials and a set of personal experiences.

Several videos focusing on the Asmat people fulfill us with feelings of empathy and unease. What these films question, is the stereotypic opposition between ‘us’ and ‘them’. Stories are narrated, but often without any clear progression or goal, except perhaps to shatter the illusion of New Guinea as an untouched, isolated world in itself. Mutual expectations and misunderstandings need not be concealed. After all, this is all about real people, not artistic or ideological constructs.

EVIDENCE is gently supported by Mondriaan Fund.

With over fifty films and videos from the Argos Collection, the evolving group exhibition STEP UP! provides an exciting selection of Belgian works at the intersection of dance, performance and visual arts from the period 1970-2000.

Without having encyclopedic ambitions, STEP UP! offers an overview of 30 years of Belgian artistic production. During the exhibition period, the project eleborates in five completely different stages.

Having focused mainly in earlier chapters on the roots of dance and performance film and video, in our third and last part of STEP UP! we choose a bolder road.


In the exhibition we confront various historical choreographies with works by artists that are not linked to the world of dance or performance,

Boghossian Foundation - Villa Empain

Avenue Franklin Roosevelt, 67 - 1050 Ixelles map +00 32 26275230

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.

Rue Borrens, 32 34 - 1050 Ixelles map 02-644.34.32

The CAB is pleased to announce its upcoming show: conceived as an invitation into a rediscovered holistic worldview - one in which humankind considers itself to be indebted to and part of nature’s ecosystems, rather than exploiting it.
Notes on our equilibrium takes as a departure point the context in which the French architect and designer Jean Prouvé conceived his modular 6x6 Demountable House (1944): a Post-WWII traumatized climate, where a sense of urgency and immediate action for improvement and change was demanded. He provided sustainable and ingenious solutions.
A paradigm shift has occurred since; where the use of the progresses and the promises of industrialization once were eagerly welcomed, today they have caused a problematic shift in human respect towards its environment. Anno 2017, we can easily state that we live in a state of emergency. Economic and political conflicts aside; the ecological crisis is looming as a global threat that doesn't really receive the attention or action it is crying for. The institutionalized disregard for the limitation of natural resources is infecting our presence on earth on a scale that cannot be reversed.
Across artworks that manifest themselves as natural phenomena dispersed throughout the exhibition space, Notes on our equilibrium aims to re-ignite consciousness and reflection regarding our impact on the ecosphere.

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.

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.

Mood Indigo

Centre for Fine Arts - BOZAR

Rue Ravenstein, 23 - 1000 Brussels map 02-507.82.00

Blue is the colour of the moment. As BOZAR celebrates the work of Yves Klein, the International Trade Centre’s Ethical Fashion Initiative and the European Commission invite Malian textile designer and master indigo dyer Aboubakar Fofana to share his art in Brussels.Come experience the unique savoir-faire of dyeing white cotton fabric by hand to endless shades of indigo. To the rhythms of Duke Ellington and working over a vat of magical blue liquid, Aboubakar Fofana will demonstrate his traditional artisanal technique. BOZAR’s Horta Hall will be transformed into a floating indigo forest to fully celebrate the colour blue that was so integral to Yves Klein’s workAboubakar Fofana’s art was recently celebrated at the contemporary art biennale, documenta (14), in Kassel and Athens.The musical duo OoopopoiooO from Bologna will perform at the event with music inspired by Duke Ellington’s 1930 iconic classic composition, Mood Indigo. In collaboration with Ecole de La Cambre    Aboubakar Fofana is a multidisciplinary artist and designer whose working mediums include calligraphy, textiles and natural dyes.  He is best known for his work in reinvigorating and redefining West African indigo dyeing techniques, and much of his focus is devoted to the preservation and reinterpretation of traditional West African textile and natural dyeing techniques and materials. All of his work takes its inspiration as well as its raw materials from the natural world, and revolves around the cycles of nature, the themes of birth, decay and change, and the impermanence of his materials. He is currently deeply involved in creating a farm in conjunction with the local community in the district of Siby, Mali, in which the two types of indigenous West African indigo will be the centrepiece for a permaculture model based around local food, medicine and dye plants.  This project hopes to contribute to the rebirth of fermented indigo dyeing in Mali and beyond, and represents his life's greatest project to date.

They have crossed the Aegean and the Mediterranean seas in shabby rubber dinghies. They have crawled under barbed wire on the border of Syria and Turkey and in central Europe. They have trudged along dusty roads in Iraq and Syria as bombs and gunfire erupted behind their backs. They have waited in set-up refugee camps in Jordan and Greece and makeshift way stations in Belgrade. They have shivered on icy roads in the middle of the Balkan winter snow. And in the end, they have faced smiling welcoming volunteers, hostile menacing crowds and everythingin between.AFP has followed and recorded the hope, heartbreak, joy, dignity and hardship of their journeys. Exhibition organized on the initiative of the Permanent Representation of the International Organization of La Francophonie to the European Union

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)

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.

Tshela tendu & Vincent Meessen

Centre for Fine Arts - BOZAR

Rue Ravenstein, 23 - 1000 Brussels map 02-507.82.00

Following exhibitions at the KIOSK in Ghent  (2013) and the Kunsthalle in Basel (2015), this summer  Vincent Meessen will be revealing the third version of Patterns for (Re)cognition at BOZAR. In this exhibition-in--exhibition, the artist looks at a gap in the modern art historiography of Belgium and the Congo. Acting as artist and curator he creates a unique context with modular structures, 16 millimetre films, 19th century objects and a sound installation. Together these serve to frame the abstract watercolours of Tshela tendu (Congo, circa 1880-1950) within the modernist heritage. Although this Congolese painter exhibited in Brussels, Paris, Rome and Geneva in the early 1930s, his work was subsequently and unjustifiably forgotten. Focusing on the abstract work of this Congolese pioneer, this exhibition contributes to the renewed interest Tshela tendu’s work enjoys progressively in Europe.

Ado Chale

Centre for Fine Arts - BOZAR

Rue Ravenstein, 23 - 1000 Brussels map 02-507.82.00

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.

Rue de la Concorde, 21 - 1050 Ixelles map 02-503.04.98

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.

Galerie valérie Bach ​/ la patinoire Royale

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

Valerie Bach Gallery is pleased to present Douglas White's first solo exhibition in Brussels. The gallery had already presented the work of this English artist during the collective exhibition "Force of Nature" in 2016 under the curating of James Putnam and then on his stand at the Drawing Now Contemporary Drawing Now in Paris (March 2017).
Douglas White graduated from the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art (2000) and the Royal College of Art in London (2005). His work has been exhibited in United Kingdom but also in Europe, United States and South America. His work is part of many collections: David Roberts Art Foundation, Saatchi Collection, Frank Cohen, Cass Sculpture Foundation…
Known for his evocative use of objects and materials found, it collects the detritus of our society to transform them, compulsively, into singular sculptures, often monumental. Driven by a fascination with scrapped or forgotten materials and the ability to "find something magical in everyday life"; his practice is intuitive. He assembles elements as diverse as tires of trucks burst, cactus half disintegrated. With extreme transformations he reveals materials' unexpected surfaces and structures.
This exhibition, entitled "Portraits of my Father as a Horseshoe Bat", brings together several series: such as bats reconstituted from dried bananas and false furs. An intimate and personal reflection of the artist on mourning. An ox emerges from a pile of cactus pieces, owls appear on the surface of a light box and octopuses leave their imprint on blotting paper. Like an alchemist, the artist transforms the found objects to give them a new form, a new life and the spectator can only marvel at his ingenuity.
Artist's biography
Douglas White is born in 1977 in Guilford (United Kingdom).
He lives and works in London.
His work has been exhibited since 2002 in England but also abroad, in gallery and in museums. His biography is available on request.

Rue du Canal, 13 - 1000 Brussels map 02-219.14.22

Occupying an impressive Art Nouveau building designed by the architect Louis Bral and then restored by architects Hilde Daem and Robbrecht, the gallery was founded in 1988 under the name of Gallery Meert Rihoux. In 2006, it changed direction and assumed the name of the new director, Greta Meert. From the start, the gallery has placed the emphasis on the minimal and conceptual art of the seventies (Donald Judd, Robert Mangold, Richard Tuttle, Robert Barry, Hanne Darboven, Niele Toroni) and also paid particular attention to photography from the eighties (Thomas Struth, Louise Lawler, Jeff Wall, Ken Lum, Ian Wallace and John Baldessari. In addition, the gallery presents a more future-focused selection of artists including Eric Baudelaire, Iñaki Bonillas, Johannes Esper, Valerie Krause, Anne Neukamp, Tobias Putrih and Johannes Wald and the Belgian artists Edith Dekyndt, Stef Driesen, Sophie Nys, Koen van den Broek, Catharina van Eetvelde and Pieter Vermeersch.

Jonathan Callan’s (°1961 lives and works in London) single book pages, collages really, with shapes removed and other images placed into the resulting holes came from looking back at the pieces he made many years ago where different faces were looking out of the shape created by other heads. He became interested in imagining sculptures or installations in different landscapes/ interiors. He was also trying to find a way of making the new objects blend or camouflage themselves into the spaces they occupy. He wanted the viewer to be caught in a kind of trap where the shapes appear both natural and deeply suspicious. It’s very important that the process is one of simple cut outs and physical replacement. he would not be at all interested in doing it with Photoshop.


Julie Cockburn’s work (°1966 lives and works in London) revolves around found images; her source materials are familiar and often nostalgic. By manipulating a found photograph, it is re-appropriated and given a new significance. The images Cockburn uses are lost from their original meaning rendering them impotent and malleable. She contradicts the generic and mass-produced with a handmade craft and a painstaking attention to detail, not for its own sake, particularly, but to make these physically and intellectually worn objects precious again and weighted with a different value. The work addresses ideas about gender, the conflict between modernity and history, thought and process and the changing associations we have with photography in a digital age.


Katrien De Blauwer (°1969 lives and works in Antwerp) calls herself a "photographer without a camera". She collects and recycles pictures and photos from old magazines and papers. Her work is, at the same time, intimate, directly corresponding with our unconscious, and anonymous thanks to the use of found images and body parts that have been cut away. This way, her personal history becomes the history of everyone. The collage effects a kind of universalisation, emphasizing the impossibility to identify with a single individual, yet allowing to recognize oneself in the story. The artist becomes a neutral intermediary: without being the author of the photographs, she appropriates and integrates them into her own interior world, a world she’s revealing in third person.
She gives new meaning and life to what is residual, saving images from destruction and including them in a new narration that combines intimacy and anonymity. Her work therefore deals with memory, basically. Memory by accumulation rather than by substraction. Her work brings to mind the procedures of photomontage or film editing. The cut being used as a frame that marks the essential.

Karin Fisslthaler (°1981 lives and works in Linz and Vienna) main topic of her work is the human body, its nonverbal communication system, representation and identity construction. She is researching these aspects mostly in found images and carving out the process of collective and individual reflections of human behaviour in the media. She works with different kind of materials like film and video, music or found pictures. By means of collecting, cutting and reassembling she tries to open already defined views and creating voids with the objective of ambiguity of interpretation.

She uses recurring motifs in her work: hands, skin, the faces of stars distorted and concealed. These are interfaces for the body, points of contact. We use them to communicate without, beyond spoken and written words. Having the potential to be identified with, they also function like a mirror. Because we all have a body of our own at our disposal, and a face. We make casual gestures and physical contact, cast gazes at one another, or aim eyes at the camera, and experience tactile contact and exchanges with everyday things like money.

She attempts to dissect representations and reveal the structures and characteristics of the media conveying them. For her this is a way of reactivating them, enhancing any correspondences that emphasizes the ambiguity and complexities involved.


Belgian-born Noé Sendas (°1972 lives and works in Berlin) started a body of works the “Peeps”, which are based on vintage erotic postcard size images, intervened with direct, mostly single, geometrical shapes and re-printed in the same scale. The “Crystal Girl” and “Peep series result in black and white prints on rugged paper, facsimileing original photographs from the last century.

Incorporated in delicate frames and installed in balanced groups, the assemblages often induce a certain environment or atmosphere. Single and even more as a “field”, they perform as cores of recovered glamour, they operate like diaphanous retinas to an imagery full of taste, noble gesture, exclusive forms, cultural crosslinks and beneath all a deep unsettledness.
The almost dogmatic absence of any visible face - all of them are hidden, eroded or covered – even amplifies their vulnerable noblesse. Sendas points out: “All my manipulated photographs are faceless or, as I like to say, Nameless”–“as if they had just been found at the archaeology site of Glamour”.

An installation by IVRO (Romain Marula & Ivan Murit)

Opening : Thursday 08/06, 18:00-20:00
Expo : 09/06 - 30/06, Tuesday-Friday, 13:00-18:00

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".

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.

Rue Saint-Georges, 24 - 1050 Ixelles map +32 478 48 77 09

The arrow of time, deuxième exposition personnelle de Lucie Lanzini à la Jozsa Gallery (Bruxelles) ouvre une réflexion sur l’espace domestique et ses composantes architecturées, sur ce qui tient et ce qui fait tenir. Amalgame, installation in situ et point de départ de ce nouveau corpus d’oeuvres, présente depuis la vitrine donnant sur la rue Saint Georges, se compose d’un ensemble d’éléments aussi bien architecturaux qu’ornementaux dont la réalisation et le réalisme nous intrigue autant que leur potentiel devenir ruine. Chaques morceaux, formes hybrides en suspension, que l’on imagine comme stoppés dans leur chute, se figent en de nouveaux éléments structurels entre les murs de la galerie, contraignant physiquement le déplacement du visiteur dans l’installation et jouant sur la perception et le désir de chacun de mettre son propre corps en tension avec les formes en présence.

A travers ces fragments d’espace de vie, que l’on retrouve également dans Effigie, bloc mural massif duquel émerge un motif décoratif comme revenu à la vie ou encore Trophée, que l’on imagine être un reste de cheminée dont le linteau, la tablette et un jambage aurait été sauvegardé, Lucie Lanzini évoque son rapport aux souvenirs et à l’absence qu’elle tente de figer à travers la technique du moulage, pour mieux les garder en mémoire. Férue de jeu de matière, l’artiste associe différentes techniques de sculpture pour créer les décalages et oppositions qui rythment son travail et constituent son terrain de jeu. The arrow of time en est la dernière occurrence, associant savoir-faire et matières déjà éprouvées au sein de sa pratique à l’art de la verrerie pour créer de délicates flèches translucides qui transpercent de façon aussi brutale que délicate les motifs ainsi fixés - pour l’éternité?

Stéphane Barbier Bouvet is an artist whose work fuses ideas of design, sculpture, and display. It develops, simultaneously, as a practice, a form of knowledge, and a comment. His oeuvre often comprises commissions that entail the mediation and alteration of existing conditions. And yet, his work is rarely shown and fully deployed as a language in its own right. After Service is an exhibition that challenges and defies the context-dependency of Stéphane Barbier Bouvet’s body of work, while offering an insight into the repertoire of gestures and forms articulated by the artist over the years. Display systems, objects, and commissioned works coinhabit a spatial situation that dwells somewhere between an exhibition and a gathering of things.

La Verrière

Boulevard de Waterloo, 50 - 1000 Brussels map 02-511.20.62

British-born artist Tris Vonna-Michell (b. 1982, lives in Sweden) takes a minimal, rationalist approach, combining
research, performance, photography, film and writing in strictly defined, elegant, scenographic installations. His
sophisticated stories resemble a kind of documentary sound poetry. Vocal performances and installations in
space present sinuous, twisting narratives characterized by colliding scraps of visual and audio information,
images and words, invariably rooted in the attempt to re-tell an intimate or collective, historical story. From these
fragile, fragmented narrative frameworks, the artist recomposes troubling worlds of sound and vision in which
the story – albeit based on precise, detailed research – becomes abstract and mysterious, highlighting memory’s
capacity to transform reality into fantasy.

Officially opened in 2000, the Verrière-Hermès is part of the international network of galleries of the Hermès Enterprise Foundation. This foundation supports projects that resonate with the values of the Hermès firm: promoting traditional craft skills and supporting creativity, and involvement in the field of education and the environment, while at the same time developing its own programmes (exhibitions, artists’ residencies for the visual arts, the Émile Hermès Prize for design, the Skills Academy, and calls for biodiversity projects). Within the framework of this patronage, the Verrière produces and promotes four contemporary art exhibitions a year, coupled with design presentations. A small catalogue is published following each exhibition.

Rue Fourmois, 9 - 1050 Ixelles map 02-534.77.72

Marcel Bascoulard, the tramp and the lady; Charlemagne Palestine and the God Bear; Mathis Collins and the Poulbot; Lady Gaga and the Telepathic Alien Ivy; Madge Gill and Myrninerest; Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Lady Jane; Pierre Molinier and Le Chaman; Fernand Desmoulin and his spirits…

"Otherwise and Beyond" is a pretty crowded group show. Each artist came along with plenty of alter egos or avatars, as much as they can be qualified. "Doubles" may not be the best term to use. It implies a pure replica, a quite systematic reproduction, when here each identity is blurred in its own way. For instance Genesis Beyer P-Orridge becoming one with Lady Jane is maybe quite the opposite of Pierre Molinier’s gallery of shapeshifting genderless creatures. When Charlemagne Palestine worships Teddy Bears, the mass produced totems become mythical again; but when Mathis Collins portrays the epitome of the french artist, it becomes a laughing caricature of parisien waiter. Becoming someone else isn’t here merely crossing borders, it’s rather melting, multiplying, disorienting identities. It’s rather a matter of intensity than of polarity.

These artists are either shamen, jesters or psychic. They are sometimes also vagrants, as Marcel Bascoulard. A pretty interesting character, Bascoulard was accurately drawing the streets and the buildings of his city, Bourges, while living in shacks. He enjoyed dressing as a woman in self-made dresses and was taking self-portraits every weeks. Yet he didn’t actually consider the photographs as part of his works. But then why was he so systematic? Life, practice, work: these different fields are blurred. The same ambivalence is at stake with Fernand Desmoulin or Madge Gill. In the field of mediumnic art, can a clear line be drawn between the life and the work? Even more, the very notion of author becomes irrelevant. If Desmoulin was in touch with a variety of spirits, Madge Gill works were dictated to her by a single one, named Myrninerest (My Inner Rest).

Mainstream entertainment and capitalism tried to appropriate this category of artists, for the best or the worst. Lady Gaga’s image is thriving on such an imagery, trying to be a monster without a clear face or definition. Yet an efficient machine needs a clear function, in order to reach the top of the charts for instance. Anna Solal chose to throw her in a parallel world of depressive weirdness that shows the utter contradiction of such a position.

This show is maybe addressing the current role imposed to artists: the artist as entrepreneur. Without emitting any moral judgment, what happens when an artist complies with a predefined role or establish standards? The machine without function becomes then fully functional and might lose its symbolical and social power to transform. The plasticity of the artists' role in the society cannot be confused with the adaptability of his/her/their workforce in a global world.

Levy.Delval

Rue Fourmois, 9 - 1050 Ixelles map 02-534.77.72

In September 2014, Elaine Lévy and Florent Delval joined forces to create Levy Delval. Originally, the Elaine Lévy Project was founded in January 2006 in the Châtelain district and installed in unusual premises, on the upper floor of a renovated beer warehouse. By becoming partners, Elaine Lévy and Florent Delval intend to promote artists from the young European and international scene, through multidisciplinary works of art. In this way, the gallery endeavours to find a balance between different types of contemporary media and up-and-coming or established artists.

Fleming Faloon takes its title from 1963-64 film by Owen Land and is entirely devoted to portraits. In the film the image of a staring TV presenter is subjected to a series of manipulations, questioning the optical ambiguity of cinema and the projected image and its resistance to time. This first 16mm film by Land was a source of inspiration for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests.

Riva Project

Rue de Tenbosch, 124 - 1050 Ixelles map 02-850.42.38

Riva Project presents an exhibition which brings together a selection of works inspired by the iconic figure of the Cowboy in contemporary art.

The exhibition stages a dialogue between contemporary works around this figure, which evokes countless legends as well as the wide open spaces of the American West. The cowboy presents an imaginative appeal drawing on ideas of freedom, power, mobility and a desire for justice.

This dimension finds a dynamic expression in paintings and photographs which stage the qualities of the cowboy, but also gives space to the surroundings through which he travels: untouched landscapes.


The western retains a topical relevance and has found new life in the world of contemporary art.

Group show with :
Edward S.Curtis, Cécile Defforey, Toiletpaper (Maurizio Cattelan & Pierpaolo Ferrari), Malcolm Morley, Richard Prince, Hannes Schmid, Andres Serrano.

Sint-Lukasgalerie Brussel

Rue des Palais, 116 - 1030 Schaerbeek map +32 2 250 11 66

Lise Duclaux in collaboration with Chris Straetling

De meerduidige titel heeft het over een observatorium voor zwakzinnigen en gekken en vertelt er meteen bij dat alles niet zo eenvoudig is als het lijkt. Het artistieke project speelde zich af op een graasweide naast een opvangcentrum tijdens Mons Culturele Hoofdstad 2015. Bewoners, kunstenares Lise Duclaux en bezoekers geven er spontaan uiting aan hun creatieve fantasie. Daarbij observeren ze niet alleen elkaars gedrag maar ook dat van de aanplantingen rond een monumentale kastanjeboom. Daar groeien medicinale planten (‘herbes simples’) en onkruid (‘herbes folles’ ) die hardnekkig hun gang gaan volgens hun eigen tijdritme en orde van grootte. Onze florale tegenhangers leren ons veel over onszelf. Net als de bewoners ontsnappen planten aan de ‘normaliteit’ van de maatschappij.

Naast een hoop herinneringen blijven er van het hele gebeuren op de weide een aantal foto’s en video’s over. Bij middel van tekeningen en poëtische teksten weeft Lise Duclaux vervolgens nieuwe interpretatiedraden rond het project. Aanleiding tot de tentoonstelling in de Sint-Lukasgalerie is de verschijning van een tweede kunstenaarsboek, waarin het project steeds verder uitdijt in de diepte en de breedte. De nabeschouwingen situeren het uitwisselingsproject tussen bewoners, natuur en artistieke wereld in een universeel verband. We traceren een verhaal over de oorsprong van de hemellichamen en de verschillende levensvormen. Megastructuren en miniatuurverschijningen vertonen tal van raakvlakken. Planten worden metaforen voor het menselijk gedrag. Complexe wortelstructuren vertonen verwantschap met de grillige wandelpatronen van autisten. De beeldtaal knoopt zowel aan bij een eeuwenoude traditie van botanische tekeningen als bij recente wetenschappelijke kennis. Uit de hele presentatie blijkt de intense wisselwerking tussen het sociaal-artistieke project, de autonome creatie en de eigenzinnige visie van de kunstenaar.

Rue Anneessens - 1000 Brussels map 02-511.50.77

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.

Curatoren: Walter Vanhaerents, Emma Dexter

Tomás Saraceno - 'Many suns and worlds'

Tomás Saraceno
Vanhaerents Art Collection

Rue Anneessens - 1000 Brussels map 02-511.50.77

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
