Place de Belgique, 1 - 1020 Laeken map 02-669.49.21

Design Generations is an exhibition presented in collaboration with Wallonie-Bruxelles Design-Mode (WBDM) within the framework of Intersections, the ADAM’s biennial contemporary design event. It invites visitors to take a fresh look at design by demonstrating the profound value of this profession, which has witnessed and often advocated changes in our society over the last century. Ten Belgian design companies explain their approach through a selection of products, some from the past (permanently held in the Museum), some from the present (taken from their current collections) and some from the future (imaginary objects).

Through its multi-sensory approach, which reveals spatio-temporal links and intersections, the exhibition offers a true experience of the world of design, improving our understanding of the lives of the objects that surround us and of their intelligence, both retroactive and prospective. They are the interfaces of our everyday lives, custodians of the precious legacies of the past, agents of social and aesthetic experiences, models for sustainable production and development, and vehicles for innovative scenarios promising a better future.

Place de Belgique, 1 - 1020 Laeken map 02-669.49.21

The nightclub is one of the most important design spaces in contemporary culture. Since the 1960s, nightclubs have been epicentres of pop culture, distinct spaces of nocturnal leisure providing architects and designers all over the world with opportunities and inspiration.

"Night Fever. Designing Club Culture 1960 – Today" offers the first large-scale examination of the relationship between club culture and design, from past to present. The exhibition presents nightclubs as spaces that merge architecture and interior design with sound, light, fashion, graphics, and visual effects to create a modern Gesamtkunstwerk. Examples range from Italian clubs of the 1960s created by the protagonists of Radical Design to the legendary Studio 54 where Andy Warhol was a regular, from the Haçienda in Manchester designed by Ben Kelly to more recent concepts by the OMA architecture studio for the Ministry of Sound in London. The exhibits on display range from films and vintage photographs to posters, flyers, and fashion, but also include contemporary works by photographers and artists such as Mark Leckey, Chen Wei, and Musa N. Nxumalo. A spatial installation with music and light effects takes visitors on a fascinating journey through a world of glamour and subcultures – always in search of the night that never ends.

A coproduction with the Vitra Design Museum.

Designing the Night celebrates the rich design heritage of Belgian nightlife graphics. In the late 1980s and 1990s Belgium’s club culture was at its peak: vacant buildings in historic city centers became art and music hotspots and rural residences located next to roads were transformed into spaces that came into life only at night. Inside, mirrors, music and bouncing bodies created an artificial world and colourful laser beams illuminated atmospheric clouds that emanated from the smoke/fog machines. Thrilled by this fascinating, shared universe, youth from all over Europe came to Belgian clubs, escaping everyday life throughout the night - and staying well after the sun came up the other day. Often, flyers and posters are the only physical reminders left from the parties of the night before. Usually reduced to their function of being fast consumably and to gather as many people into clubs as possible, a closer look on these graphic ephemera reveals the wide range of lifestyles, graphic strategies, subcultures, music genres, identities and creativity fostered by Belgian club life. The exhibition features a collection of never-before-shown graphics including those of iconic clubs like Mirano, Fuse, Plan K, Boccaccio, La Rocca, Carre, and many more.

Place de Belgique, 1 - 1020 Laeken map 02-669.49.21

As the mirror of our lifestyles and consumer habits, the layout of our interiors reflects our civilisation’s huge social upheavals and technological advances. The exhibition SPACES – Interior Design Evolutions retraces the development and layout of interior spaces, from the ostentatious decoration of the 19th century to the openplan, minimalist designs of contemporary apartments.
The development of electric lighting and mass-produced furniture, together with the emergence of electrical household appliances, have transformed the interior architecture of our homes, altering the way in which we inhabit, approach and understand space. Our homes are private places, yet they are also representative, being full of symbols and signs that associate us with a particular group, culture or philosophy.
Whether it be the arrangement of circulation areas, or developments in interior design and furniture, what can interiors and their layouts tell us about people’s lifestyles, attitudes and behaviour?

Staged in association with the Design Museum Holon in Israel, the IN-possible. Before an idea is brought to life exhibition describes the work behind an industrial design product. A design object is the result of a complex combination of factors, where higher, cultural and social issues are joined by practical, concrete and financial
matters. The meeting between the designer and the company represents a key moment in this process. A meeting of expertise, points of view and skills that shape - as part of what is often a long and laborious process - the product’s arrival on the market. Indeed, an industrial design product is a collective work where the company acts as the “publisher”. This continuous and open dialogue susceptible to the deviation, sometimes unexpected sees an “In-possibility” become a “Possibility”, as is typical of projects that seek to create innovative items and that therefore tacitly accept risk of an uncertain outcome.
The exhibition is accompanied by a meeting entitled IN - possible Talk in which professionals of different fields describe to the public an experience, a project or a vision of an “Impossibility” that was unsuccessful in the short term but that, in reality, laid the foundations for a subsequent innovation.

The Plasticarium Collection

ADAM – Brussels Design Museum

Place de Belgique, 1 - 1020 Laeken map 02-669.49.21

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.

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 Boghossian Foundation presents its new exhibition, Melancholia, at the Villa Empain. The exhibition examines the origins and manifestations of this feeling – manifest in both the East and the West since ancient history – which unremittingly reminds us of a lost origin, and instills in us a sense of mourning for a past world.

“Those who have been eminent in philosophy, politics, poetry, and the arts have all had tendencies toward melancholia.” states Aristotle. This feeling of melancholy remains at the heart of the problems we are confronted with today because the world we face is an inevitable cause for concern, especially given the irreversible climate change. The earth we know will never be the same – the digital revolution in the 2000s has marked the beginning of a form of dehumanisation of human relationships, questioning how a person can remain a unique and irreplaceable being.

Today’s and tomorrow’s children of Saturn remain inconsolable beings, haunted by existential problems. Works by modern and contemporary artists presented in the exhibition explore issues such as nostalgia for a bygone era; for the depiction of solitude, absence, and passing time.

The catalogue includes an anthology of quotes from modern and contemporary poets and writers, as well as photographs of the exhibition. Among others, it presents in situ installations, specially conceived for Melancholia, in the Villa and the Foundation’s garden.

Botanique

La couleur manifeste, the exhibition of works by Bernard Villers at the Botanique, asserts the poetic and sensory force of colour. Colour is certainly manifest: rather than merely present, it is the very subject of his work. Unhindered by any realistic representation, it is free to tell its own story and to provoke emotional responses. As soon as you enter the exhibition, the gaze takes in the whole space, creating a singular reading path that brings together works that are sometimes thirty years apart. Though they may differ in terms of intentions and ideas, all interrogate the power of colour. As you begin to move, you will distinguish the effects on the surfaces of the works when a Prussian blue is juxtaposed with a Senegal yellow, or an English red is pitted against a Veronese green. At closer range, you become aware of the pictorial medium and the incidence of light upon it.
After training in monumental painting at the École nationale supérieure des Arts visuels of La Cambre in the department headed by Paul Delvaux and later by Jo Delahaut, Bernard Villers continued his pictorial research, and explored the medium through its traditional components: canvas, stretchers, frame. For example, he chose light cotton canvases, and played with their transparency to intensify or mute colours. He then established a series of well-defined constraints which influenced the conditions and the processes of his work. Drawing on significant figures from the arts, literature and philosophy, he created for himself a family of artists and authors to inspire and nurture his approach: Schwitters, Malevich, Barthes, Pessoa and Perec, to name but a few. During these exploratory years, he linked his art to everyday life. The everyday appears in his painting though the use of objets trouvés such as scrapers, crates, palettes, chair seats and dismantled drawers diverted from their original purpose.
His explorations of the medium led him to consider both the front and the back, but also the edge and the possibilities it offered for cutting, folding, angling or piercing. These practical expedients create a dialogue with the space and expand the scope of the medium, providing simple means of multiplying the ways of perceiving colour. Pieces in relief, slightly detached or placed at an angle to the wall, on the ground or in suspension create a parallax effect, inviting the viewing to move around the space to capture fresh aspects of a work. Subject to the play of light and shade, to the effects of reflexion of (and in) the immediate environment, these pieces stir new emotions.
Bernard Villers chose painting in the way he would later choose the book. Colours and words thus intersect, in a continuous to-and-fro. There is more: the painting and the book furnish ways to read colour and to see words. When setting up Le Remorqueur publications in 1976, Villers deliberately adopted a position on the fringes of the art market, along with artists for whom the book is a medium in itself, and who overturn existing principles. An object does not need to be unique to be a work of art, it has become multiple and serial, accessible to a wider public.
In this exhibition, the works unfurl, clearly more complex on a second reading than at first sight. Nothing is given from the outset, yet everything is laid out with simplicity and clarity. The materials are deliberately chosen for their properties, the gestures are intelligible and few in number, the decisions are uncompromising. There is no evasion: what you see is what there is, the constraints are visible, with formidable openness, unlike some abstract paintings in which the process counts less than the matter. This is what gives this body of work its undeniable topicality. Though it is poetic, it is nonetheless rigorous, and while it speaks for itself it is a great privilege to hear Bernard Villers interpret it.

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.

EXPO

Using a thematic approach, RESISTANCE studies how contestation and resistance fall within a body of artworks. Instigating a dialogue between historical works from 1968 and contemporary pieces by Belgian and international artists, the show reflects on the huge gateway that opened during that era and that remains connected to contemporary art.

From 1968 to 2018, some artists chose to resist the diktats of the art world and to point the flaws that jeopardize the very foundations of our media-hungry societies. Paradoxically, art drew all its strength from the many resistances and protests imprinted in these art works…

The exhibition sheds light on works stemming from a practice of relations broadened to the world, which use unconventional materials and media and that are all animated by a burning desire for action at the heart of the community. A practice founded on firm beliefs that converge with major collective issues such as personal freedom, feminism, globalisation, the environment.

At the core of the show, the role of artists unfurls as the key player of a revolutionary thought, somewhere between resistance and protest.

Curator: Maïté Vissault

OPEN ACADEMY

During the exhibition, CENTRALE will turn into an OPEN ACADEMY for teachers and students from different Brussels art schools and will thus offer a platform to artists, thinkers, students and the audience, a place for debates and encounters to explore models of political, cultural and educational governance critically. Together they analyze and highlight the themes of student and worker uprisings that have unfolded in a pluriform protest by all authorities in May 68. They explore the causes of the movement to gauge the protest of today and tomorrow. The public will see this open laboratory, consisting of the prospective work and the artistic work of the students. In addition, a cycle of lectures, performances and screenings is also organized.

Artistic concept: Carine Fol in partnership with : ARBA / ISAC / CARE, La Cambre, LUCA School of Arts, RITCS

The summer exhibition presented at the CENTRALE.lab, D’un BanKet à l’autre, recounts Françoise Schein’s ambitious project. The visual artist, born in Brussels, lives and works in Paris while following her projects around the world, especially in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo where she has set up two workshops to create artistic and social projects. Over more than 30 years, Françoise Schein has begun building a worldwide network of monumental works dedicated to themes around democratic issues and human rights. Engaged politically and sensitive to the historical evolution of fundamental rights, she sets up contemporary projects that joined the heritage of cities.

In 2016, CENTRALE initiated Le Grand BanKet, a participatory project born from workshops with residents and users of the Sainte-Catherine district, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of CENTRALE for contemporary art. Since the festive inauguration on June 26, 2016, the tables have been adopted by residents, city dwellers, tourists, school groups and other passers-by in search of a convivial break, the project thus fitting perfectly into the urban fabric.

The exhibition D’un BanKet à l’autre highlights the work of Françoise Schein while placing it in the continuity of other similar projects in Europe. Plans, videos, photographs and texts document 5 banquets realised between 2012 and 2018 (Les Muraux, Brussels, Louvain-la-Neuve, Vienna, Paris). All of these elements highlight the social and political dimensions of projects resulting from a process based on creation as a sharing process.

For Françoise Schein, art embodies the social bond first and foremost.

The works created for the exhibition Carrément ! at CENTRALE.lab, continue his ambition to critically interrogate what it means to create art works, especially objects which can be thought of as paintings. Found objects that he picked up during his wanderings through the Brussels streets, including painted fragments of doors, tables, chairs, floor tiles and remains of wallpapers are re imagined as art objects that, once put together, form a collection of artworks that speak and stem directly from Brussels.

The works created for the exhibition Carrément ! at Centrale Lab, continue his ambition to critically interrogate what it means to create art works, especially objects which can be thought of as paintings. Situated somewhere between painting and sculpture, the site-specific works on show at Centrale continue to question the hierarchies of art objects, in reflection of everyday gestures and acts not considered to be art.

Since 2015, most of her production stems from regular visits to Calais’ clandestine Jungle refugee camp, dismantled in October 2016. Using the body as sole anchor, the exhibition engages spectators in a poetic, abstract and fragile attempt to translate a fragment of our era. Zizi Lazer associates plastic sensitivity to social commitment. Her work resonates with the RESISTANCE exhibition.

The Université libre de Bruxelles, in partnership with BOZAR and in collaboration with the ULB and VUB research centres, is proud to present the exhibition, The Art of Difference, a scientific, historical and artistic exhibition about disability. Thanks to new technologies, research into sensorial, physical and mental handicap has led to many new inventions. These innovations have undoubtedly improved the day-to-day life of people suffering handicaps and those caring for them. However, they have also ignited many discussions around the augmented humans and transhumanism – a debate that is also addressed and challenged by artists through their work.

BOZAR Open Air

Centre for Fine Arts - BOZAR

Rue Ravenstein, 23 - 1000 Brussels map 02-507.82.00

During the summer of 2018 , Brussels landscape architect Bas Smets and 'POOL IS COOL' will set up a temporary public installation on Baron Hortastraat alongside the Centre for Fine Arts, as part of the BOZAR Open Air programme.The two partners of BOZAR based their idea on a closed ecosystem and went on to consider how it might tie in with Brussels' central green-zone network. Bas Smets' trees and the POOL IS COOL shadow pool will be there for the season, and, with some styling from studio Piovenefabi, will provide an area of leisure and greenery for all, packed with a programme of summer cultural activities and a people's bar a la GUINGETTE in Van Vorst Park. The Half Circus – created as part of the Fernand Léger exhibition“Go to the circus. Nothing is as round as the circus. It is an enormous bowl in which circular forms unroll. Nothing stops, everything is connected. The ring dominates, commands, absorbs. The audience is the moving scenery; it sways with the action in the ring. Faces are raised, lowered; they shout, laugh. […] Leave your rectangles, your geometric windows and go to the country of circles in action.” Fernand Léger, Cirque, 1950This installation will stay in place during the summer so that it can be used as a kiosk and will be brought to life by events planned by the BOZAR partners.Pool is Cool – NO POOL FOR EVERYONE!In contrast to the majority of European cities Brussels has NO place to swim in the open air. At the end of the 1970s the last of the outdoor swimming pools disappeared, and took a whole swimming culture with them. Pool is Cool believes that open air swimming is much more than just healthy exercise: it stimulates social interaction and contact with nature, and has a sustainable impact on the quality of life in the city.  THE BIGGEST POOL at the Bozar Open Air 2017 has proven the pleasure of an outdoor pool in the middle of the city. But this year the authorities don’t give permission, that’s why there will be NO POOL FOR EVERYONE! Enjoy the sun around NO POOL, come with you.Bocanada - Graciela SaccoThe exhibition RESIST! The 1960s protest, photography and visual legacy begins in the public space, on Baron Horta Street, with a series of posters by Graciela Sacco creating a disruption on the wall opposite BOZAR’s entrance. Bocanada (1994-2015), which translates as ‘hot air’ or empty, is a series of close-up photographs of open mouths conveying multiple meanings ranging from a need for food to the voicing of discontent. In dialogue with this work are placed a set of banners by Russian artist and activist Artem Loskutov. This intervention recalls a significant moment in BOZAR’s history when the Centre for Fine Arts was occupied by students between May and June 1968. However, this time the banners contain no slogan. They act as signifiers of a statement which scale may suggest the urgency of the undetermined protest message.

In 1994, South African photographer George Hallett (b. 1942, Cape Town) documented one of the most important moments of South Africa’s history. Hallett, who had lived in exile since 1970, returned to his home country to photograph Nelson Mandela (1918-2013) during his campaign for South Africa’s first democratic presidential elections. BOZAR presents five photographs from a larger body of work entitled Images of Change (1994-1995), focusing on the changes as they occurred in the post-apartheid era, also known as the new South Africa.Courtesy of George Hallet. Presented in the context of the 2018 worldwide Nelson Mandela centennial celebrations, and BOZAR’s Summer of Photography exhibition RESIST! curated by Christine Eyene, who manages the George Hallett collection of prints  as part of the Making Histories Visible project at the University of Central Lancashire, Preston (England).

Horizontal Metropolis: a radical project

Centre for Fine Arts - BOZAR

Rue Ravenstein, 23 - 1000 Brussels map 02-507.82.00

Two years ago, Paola Viganò and students at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) presented “The Horizontal Metropolis" at the Venice Biennale. This is a radical project on the development of the diffuse city that uses a new conceptual framework in which the key words are porosity, isotrophy, connectivity, horizontality and space as a capital and renewable resource. This summer, the exhibition will be held at the Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels. The exhibition follows up on the research undertaken by Paola Viganò on the "Horizontal Metropolis" and applies it to the Belgian context. At a summer school three Belgian case studies - Central East Flanders, the gardens of West Brussels and the Sambre Valley in Wallonia - will be added to the existing five case studies that include the ville territoire in Lausanne, the Citta diffusa in Venice, the Megapolis in the United States and Desakota in China.

How can architects contribute to the building of a democratic space? How can one learn from the supranational urban and architectural experimentations that is the European presence in Brussels? How can one measure the issues of Europe’s construction and the cohabiting challenges of the European quarter and of the city of Brussels?These are the questions raised by the Belgian Pavilion’s curators of the Biennale di Architecttura which recently opened in Venice. For this year’s 16th edition, the Architecture Cell of the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles was in charge of commissioning and producing the national pavilion. The choice was made for a young team involving Traumnovelle and Roxane Le Grelle.With Eurotopie in Brussels, the idea is to activate the Belgian pavilion from a distance through a series of discussions, screenings and symposiums taking place at the Monts des Arts and organised in collaboration with the Académie des Sciences, des Lettres et des Beaux-Arts and BOZAR, where a ‘Salon Europa’ is inaugurated on July the 2nd.

Exactly 50 years ago Paris students took to the streets to protest against the conservative society and its moralising ideals. At the Centre for Fine Arts too, the concert hall was occupied for three months by young rebels, artists and thinkers. The festival takes May ‘68 as the point of departure to zoom in on the turbulent sixties in which Russian tanks put an abrupt end to the Prague Spring, the Vietnam War raged, the Civil Rights Movement shook up the US, wars of independence were sweeping across the African continent...

Almost 45 years on from his first performances in the Horta Hall, the New York-born musician and visual artist Charlemagne Palestine, who has been living in Brussels for the past 20 years, will be back with his fetish soft toys, and a visual and sonorous incantatory universe that is simultaneously chaotic, shamanic and radical.

SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN

Centre for Fine Arts - BOZAR

Rue Ravenstein, 23 - 1000 Brussels map 02-507.82.00

The exhibition brings together the multiple realities of art practices from all over Europe. It is both a meditation on Europeanness and an attempt to gather stories, experiences, relations and encounters from a wide range of artists, curators and other engaged individuals. BOZAR gives carte blanche to five artistic constellations: Brussels-based art spaces Etablissement d’en face, Komplot and La Loge; KASK School of Arts (Ghent) and its Kunstenbibliotheek and students of Curatorial Studies; and the Orient project presented in collaboration with Kim? Contemporary Art Center (Riga) and Bunkier Sztuki (Kraków) curated by Michal Novotný. Together they engage in a journey seen from a point in space and time, constructed with artists chosen not upon nationality but via relation. Somewhere in Between provides a unique window on today’s artistic hotbeds of Europe, it’s developments and conversations across the continent, from Brussels to Riga, from Prague to Athens, from Kraków to Lisbon, from Tbilisi to Rotterdam,...These alliances are indicative of today’s European art scenes where artists roam freely, without the geographic restrictions or institutional constraints that once defined the continent. Artists: Abel Auer, Steinar Haga Kristensen, LIFE SPORT, Dan Perjovschi, Apparatus 22, Bebe Books (Ruud Van Moorleghem & Mert Sen), Goeun Choi aka Chego, Karol Radziszewski, Doireann O’Malley, Jean-Samuel N’Sengi, JF.

Brussels Urban Landscape Biennial 2018 (BULB)

Centre for Fine Arts - BOZAR

Rue Ravenstein, 23 - 1000 Brussels map 02-507.82.00

Climate change causes an important increase of rainfall rates and more particularly of intense rain events, posing a significant threat to coastal regions and small islands across the surface of our planet. And yet, even in urban areas farther away from these coastal regions, increased precipitations and urban spread also cause a problematic of flood of entire city areas, which occurs more often than before.The second edition of the Brussels Urban Landscape Biennial (BULB) reviews the increasingly worrying issue of flooding in urban areas. How to manage the complex evacuation of rainwater in an integrated manner ? Can landscape architecture provide an answer to such challenges and how ? What are the limits of the current way of addressing this question ?Through workshops, learning by doing activities, an exhibition, a day of symposium, curated walks and lectures, the BULB event, which spans two months, tries to sensitize the broad public to the importance of water and its related cycles in the urban landscape. Rather than considering this element as a threat, BULB sees it as a vital and structuring element of this shaped landscape.  The exhibition of the Brussels Urban Landscape Biennial - BULB is held at the Palais des Beaux-Arts, in collaboration with Bureau Bas Smets, Marco Ranzato (ULB), Latitude, JNC International and Taktyk.Workshop Manager : Architecture Workroom BrusselsCurator : Joachim DeclerckIn collaboration with : Bruxelles Environnement (BE), Fédération Bruxelloises des Urbanistes (FBU)

Dvir Gallery

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

The Rue de la Régence 67 is definitely one of the liveliest gallery hubs in Brussels.
Also Dvir Gallery from Israel chose this neighbourhood to settle in Brussels, on the first floor of the front Building.
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, Lawrence Weiner, Jonathan Monk, Adel Abdessemed amongst many others.
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.

Fondation CAB

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

Along the Way will stage important works from the artist’s oeuvre, featuring textual, photographic and stone works. At the heart of the exhibition will be a brand-new commission created in-situ in response to Fondation CAB’s magnificent 1930s Art Deco architecture. The new installation – a dazzling white stone circle - and the two further sculptural works presented, Münsterland Stones and Flint Cross, express Long’s primary preoccupation: that of the position of the artist within the landscape. These minimal works reflect the enigma present in all his creations, the stones are carefully laid into geometric shapes on the ground, evocative of the megalithic arrangements of ancient civilisations and the rituals associated with them. Recalling primeval knowledge systems and a time when human life was more directly dictated by environment and season, Long responds to both the rhythms and the arbitrariness of nature.
The textual and photographic works in Along the Way are records of some of the artist’s many walks around the world. Carefully planning his routes according to particular distances, timeframes or to correspond with cosmic events, Long moves gently through nature, creating ephemeral works as he goes and leaving them to be weathered and reabsorbed by their surroundings. The textual works and photographs presented in the exhibition are the footprints he leaves behind: the snapshots and methodical notes trace his journeys, the weather and the artworks made along the way. Here he charts various expeditions, ranging from the Highlands of Scotland to excursions in Ecuador, the lines of text mimicking his own pathways through the landscape.
Along the Way reflects the foundation’s continued commitment to supporting the practice of minimal and conceptual art. Hubert Bonnet, Founder of Fondation CAB, says: ‘After four years of planning, I am proud to welcome Richard Long to Fondation CAB. This project exemplifies our direct engagement with artists in line with the Fondation’s mission of championing exceptional minimal art. Richard’s work embodies everything that is relevant and enticing in contemporary art: he is radical, relentless, and poetic.’

Roger Raveel - The left arm

Hopstreet Gallery

Rue Saint-Georges, 109 - 1050 Ixelles map +32 2 511 05 55

A seemingly charming drawing of a small toy bear will adorn the window of Hopstreet Gallery in 2018. Roger Raveel drew it in 1952, one year after creating a small painting of the same subject. Like other works from the early 1950s, the drawing shows the exceptional courage of a young, rural artist to resolutely make quick work of the suffocating legacy of Flemish post-expressionism. Rudi Fuchs correctly pointed out in the Groene Amsterdammer that Raveel depicted the loose left arm of the small bear in a moving manner by applying small hatched lines instead of a dark daub of paint or ink. Everything about the drawing is crystal clear and stripped of all visual frills. According to Fuchs, that's an artistic legacy from abstract art, which was started by Cézanne and reached its full potential by Mondriaan and Malevitch. Raveel has never done anything other than make visual art that is based on a razor-sharp analysis of reality. At the same time he is able to give the new achievements of his distinguished predecessors from abstract art a place in post-war figurative painting.

Beertje (1952) is one of Raveel's early works but it is also a contemporary work of art for the 21st century.

Roger Raveel is considered one of the most important Belgian artists after WWII. His work cannot be classified in familiar art-historical partitions. It's modern and timeless. It shuns every one-sided approach. The breeding ground of Raveel's art is his immediate surroundings, but this doesn't mean that he is tied to one location. In his paintings, drawings, objects and installations, the objects around him are given universal meaning: a man, a woman, plants, a bicycle trailer, advertising and technology are seen in time and space.
His diverse expressive language is extremely fascinating. Incompatible writings or painting methods often give his work a tension that makes the observer rediscover reality.

Roger Raveel was born on 15 July 1921 in Machelen-aan-de-Leie, a village near Ghent where he lived and worked until his death on 30 January 2013. He studied at the Municipal Academy of Deinze and at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent. His instructors were Hubert Malfait and Jos Verdeghem, amongst others. In the early 1950s he became acquainted with painters from the Cobra group, like Karel Appel and Corneille, via his friend Hugo Claus. He wanted to take very different paths with his painting. In 1962 he spent three months in Albisola Mare (Italy) where he worked and exhibited with artists like Lucio Fontana and Asger Jorn. In the second half of the 1950s his work evolved into a kind of abstract painting that has its roots in experiencing the organic, the vegetative, the animal. Around 1962 he painted a triptych entitled ’Neerhof’ with a cage in the middle with a live pigeon. He wanted to establish a direct dialogue between art and reality.
In 1966-67 he transformed the cellar corridors of Beervelde castle (near Ghent) into a pictorial environment. He received assistance from Etienne Elias, Raoul De Keyser and Reinier Lucassen. After the paintings in Beervelde he worked on several painted objects such as the ’Illusion group’ and ’Small garden with small cart to conquer the sky’. His alert environmental awareness led the artist to visualise his commitment via happenings like ’The Swans of Bruges’ and ’Raveel on the Lys River’ (1971). Almost 20 years later, in 1990, Roger Raveel commemorated the outbreak of WWII by pushing a painted wardrobe mounted on wheels through the city centre of Brussels.
For his artistic activity and graphic contribution to art history, he received honourable mention for the Young Belgian Painting Prize (1958 and 1960) and honours in the Europe Prize (1962), the International Joost van den Vondel Prize (1983), the Golden Medal of the Flemish Council (1992), he was knighted (1995) and received the Van Acker Prize (1996).

Piet Coessens is curator of the Roger Raveel Museum in Machelen-aan-de-Leie. He was Director of the Association for Exhibitions from 1992 to 2002, where he organised retrospectives of Andy Warhol, Marcel Broodthaers, Robert Smithson, William Kentridge, Lygia Clark, etc. He also worked as artistic advisor for the Flemish Master Architect from 2004 to 2007 and supervised numerous art projects in the public sphere.

The art of Roger Raveel, who was his teacher when he was 10 years old, remains a source of inspiration for Piet Coessens.

Place Royale, 6 - 1000 Brussels map

A whiff of Flower Power will be blowing through the ING Art Center when the “Revolutions – Records & Rebels – 1966-1970” exhibition opens on 24 October.
Embark upon an odyssey that plunges you into the ideas, aspirations, utopic visions and the thirst for freedom of the late 60s. You’ll also see that it was a time of militarism and anti-establishment demonstrations.
These cultural, social, artistic and technological revolutions occurred between 1966 and 1970 and influenced our current lifestyles. Even today it still has an impact on the way we envisage the future.
Put on your headphones (Technology from audio specialist Sennheiser, providing an AMBEO immersive sound experience) and immerse yourself in the sounds of the most iconic artists of the era (The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell). Take a trip from the streets of Swinging Sixties London, into the heart of the May ’68 demonstrations in Paris, passing by the Summer of Love in San Francisco, dipping into the world of Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by the Beatles, soaking up the Woodstock festival vibe or chilling in the counter-culture of the underground movement.
This is a unique opportunity to discover more than 250 symbolic objects of this period, including fashion, design, graphic design and photography, all displayed in a three-dimensional setting with videos.
This exhibition was created by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, which also produced the “David Bowie is” and “Pink Floyd - Their Mortal Remains” exhibitions. It has been adapted for the ING Art Center with subjects specific to Belgium such as the student demonstrations in Leuven and the Amougies festival. This was considered as the first European Woodstock and took place in Belgium with a line-up featuring Pink Floyd, Yes, Ten years After and Frank Zappa.
A not-to-be-missed revolutionary exhibition at the ING Art Center!

ISELP

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.

JEAN PROUVÉ, MAISON TROPICALE, 1953
The Maison Tropicale, whose only concrete realization in Africa was as a show home, is a symbol of the frustrated industrial production of Jean Prouvé and of the ongoing development of his ideas on standardization and prefabrication. Metal against metal, a dialogue takes shape between the Maison Tropicale and the structure of the workshop.

« AROUND THE MAISON TROPICALE » : A CINEMATIC AND DISCURSIVE PROGRAMME
From May 2018 to June 2019, the presentation of the Maison Tropicale will be accompanied by a cinematic and discursive programme that casts a critical contemporary perspective on the issues in terms of aesthetics and memory of European colonial history.
A project curated by Jonathan Pouthier and Diane Toubert, Musée national d’art moderne, Centre Pompidou.

TO EACH HIS OWN HOUSE. HOUSING IN THE BELGIAN CONGO: 1945 – 1960
As a counterpoint to Jean Prouvé's Maison tropicale, an icon of modern architecture that remains a prototype, CIVA offers an exhibition made from its own archives, showing the reality of what was built in the Belgian Congo in the post-war years: responses to the housing crisis, technical experiments and adaptation to climate, tropical modernism, metropolitan architecture, and of course, spatial translation of social segregation.

TOYO ITO, PAO II: DWELLINGS FOR THE TOKYO NOMAD WOMEN, 1989–2017
On the threshold of the virtual, Pao II presents itself as a frail shelter suspended over the insatiable urban fabric of the Japanese metropolises. Presented in one of the workshop’s short tunnels, the work proclaims the qualities of the nomad dwelling and advocates the use of light structures to form open spaces, capable of submitting to the uses of everyday life.

ROSS LOVEGROVE FOR LASVIT, LASVIT LIQUIDKRISTAL PAVILION, 2012
This glass pavilion unites digital architecture and design, oscillating through its undulating walls between a liquid and solid state. It is here transformed into a ‘prospective cabinet’ in which are displayed works by young designers exploring the most advanced digital technologies. This installation was made with the support of Lasvit.

MARTIAL RAYSSE, OUED LAOU, 1971/2014
In 1971 Martial Raysse created an environment evoking those rivers in the semi-barren regions that are the wadis. A contemplative and sound space, this installation evokes the community adventure which Raysse got involved in Morocco in the early 1970s.

KANAL – Centre Pompidou opens its doors in the former Citroën Yser garage in Brussels for a programme prefiguring the ‘Cultural city’ in the making, comprising among others the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art that is in development. During the 13 months preceding the start of the work, the public will be able to discover this mythical building in its raw state through several art and architecture exhibitions, large installations and ten brand-new creations by Brussels- based artists. There will also be shows produced in collaboration with cultural organizations from Brussels.

Taking over three sets of the showroom, the project ‘The Film Set’ explores the properties of film from the perspective of its visual dimension.
In its traditional form, the cinematographic spectacle rests on the viewer’s forgetting of the machine that conditions the production and dissemination of the images. The cinema of visual artists seeks on the contrary to express its materiality by revealing the presence of the surface, of light and the space that condition its perception. From the visual paradoxes of the American David Haxton to the simple geometric forms of Anthony McCall, the spectator is no longer motionless in front of the movie, but circulates in the middle of and inside moving images.

The eight episodes of Armand Gatti’s film Le Lion, sa cage et ses ailes (1975-1976) will be screened in the former changing rooms of the Citroën garage.
Commissioned by the Centre d’animation culturelle of Montbéliard, Gatti observed the town of the Peugeot factories where France’s second largest workforce was concentrated and almost 10,000 immigrants of different origins. A film-maker and theatre artist, Gatti addressed the inhabitants in the hope of turning their words into images. He launched his project by putting up a poster to the attention of the workers – ‘A film, yours’ – and invited each community to write a script. The experience of exile, the languages, work and a strong desire to belong draw the red threads of the eight episodes. Each culture appears in all its singularities and its diversity. Emigration becomes something personal: Gatti lets the individuals speak about their everyday life, about the factory, about the streets and their home.

Like Jack Black and Mos Def in the film Be Kind, Rewind, the Home Movie Factory invites you to create a film from A to Z, in record time, in a film studio that has been recreated for the occasion.
The making of the film follows a simple protocol imagined by the French film-maker Michel Gondry. After visiting the location and reviewing the props, a group of between 5 and 15 people sets to work. The group goes through all the stages involved in making a film, from the writing of the screenplay and the casting of actors to the shooting and the making of the special effects put together on site. No training is necessary: the objective is to start learning the various aspects of cinema. A range of sets and machinery, simulating both interiors and exteriors, makes it possible to shoot an endless number of stories. All the necessary equipment is made available so that the group can function autonomously. Three hours later, the group leaves the studio, taking with it the DVD of its film.
This activity is freely accessible to all.

“Ville miniature" idealized by André Citroën, the Citroën garage - a production space and a showroom - marks the Brussels landscape since the 1935 World's Fair. Since then, the building has undergone successive transformations and additions. As Found presents the key episodes of a story that begins in the early 20th century and ends with the 7 architectural projects selected after the international competition in which 92 teams took part. Plans, models, historical and current documents are the testimony of the place as found. Seen from the angle of rupture and continuity, the museum projects at the Citroën garage propose that this place of production remains a place of production and that traction becomes again the activity taking place there. In this place of memory (lieu de mémoire) and meeting in a wide urban dimension, industrial ambition gives way to an artistic and cultural project: an 84-year-old studio conscious of itself.

Whether folded, embossed, perforated or corrugated, sheet metal is one of the materials that accompanied, from the start, the development of modern metal sculpture.
Occupying quite naturally the place of the cars in the different compartments of the body repair workshop, the exhibited sculptures, which will regularly be renewed between May 2018 and June 2019, evoke some of the highlights of this multifaceted history. Appreciated for its constructive qualities that made it possible to create both planes and voids, slender and light forms, sheet metal was put to the test by the great precursors that were Julio Gonzalez and Antoine Pevsner. In the 1950s already, sheet metal was employed in a wide range of aesthetic applications, from kinetic constructions and assemblages to minimal structures, soon accompanied by a conceptual dimension.

We are pleased to inform our visitors that the offices of the former Citroën garage are going to be completely converted.
Respectful of its original environment, this conversion makes it possible to approach the spaces through a selection of works evoking their past functions. It invites visitors to discover, in the course of their visit, various types of objects and installations that make a critical or playful reference to the world of the administered society. From Haim Steinbach’s display stands for artistic merchandise to the precarious furniture sculptures of Fischli & Weiss, from Jenny Holzer’s warning-like slogans to the frail typewriter of Marcel Broodthaers, the organization of social work, in its various nuances, is a favourite subject of modern and contemporary artists. Perhaps this is a good reason to drop by the office again.

In early 2018, CIVA launched a call to universities and higher institutes in Brussels asking them if they wanted to expose the work of their students. There was one condition: the proposed projects were to concern the Citroën building and its surroundings. This summer, on the first floor of the building's former showroom, you will discover how students of architecture, design, landscape architecture and visual arts think and dream about the building and its surroundings.

In the former delivery area for new cars of the Citroën garage, decked out in the car manufacturer’s colours (red and white), design objects from the collections of Kanal Centre Pompidou and ADAM paint the premises red and white.
Presented as though on a draughtboard, the objects indicate through their two colours a new modernity, both hedonistic and iconoclastic. In the 1960s, red and white, made popular by the pop aesthetic, established themselves with the arrival of plastics and synthetic materials. Echoing the flamboyant red is the minimalism of white objects, whose repetitive pattern expresses the design language of the time. Between industrial object and radical design, these works play with the borders between art and architecture. Moreover, the delivery area houses a spectacular prototype with an aerodynamic design: a car with biomorphic shapes by Luigi Colani, ready to go!

In the changing rooms, canteen and kitchen, the living areas of the former Citroën garage where work life intersected with private life, photographs, videos and a film question identity and its constructs as fashioned by society, the media and image technologies.
Simple gestures, like those of Vito Acconci, confront the body of the artist with its doubles and its reflections. In a one-on-one encounter with the camera, the actions of Joan Jonas, Eleanor Antin, Martha Rosler and Sonia Andrade, in line with the feminist claims of the 1970s, subtly question stereotypes and the media’s ideological grasp. Chantal Akerman’s iconic film, Jeanne Dielman, echoes them through a critical portrait of a woman, performed by Delphine Seyrig, while contemporary photographic series by Rineke Dijkstra and Assaf Shoshan underline the vulnerability and instability of the subject.

Brussels is not wanting for modern and contemporary art, nor architecture. On the contrary, the capital is home to many institutions dedicated to the most diverse artistic disciplines.
The only thing missing was a museum of modern and contemporary art and an architecture museum. Hence the KANAL Centre Pompidou project, located in the 35,000m² of the former Citroën garage, on place de l'Yser. Before the renovation works begin, they are scheduled to end in 2022/2023, the Kanal Foundation has decided to launch a pilot year on May 5, 2018. For 13 months, in collaboration with the Centre Pompidou, the public will be able to discover this mythical building through several exhibitions, large installations, ten new creations by Brussels artists and a programme of live shows.

Worktable - Kate McIntosh

concept and direction Kate McIntosh | technical coordination Clare Noonan | production Sarah Parolin | produced by SPIN | commissioned in the frame of the event 'Performance Is a Dirty Work' funded by Roehampton University | thanks to Bruno Roubicek, Hester Chillingworth, Caroline Daish, Palli Banine, Ant Hampton, Joe Kelleher, Tim Etchells, Adrian Heathfield, Simon Bay
Kanal - Centre Pompidou

Quai des Péniches - 1000 Brussels map

Worktable is an installation with various rooms that you explore one by one. Once inside, you are given instructions, equipment, safety goggles, and materials that you can use. It's up to you to decide how things come apart: Kate McIntosh gives you a hammer, you do the rest.

The work of artist-in-residence Kate McIntosh transcends the boundaries of performance, theatre, video, and installation. The striking thing about her productions is that she always bridges the distance between the performers and the audience, as well as her preference for theatrical images. She is presenting three productions in the space of one week, playfully balancing on the intersection between science, entertainment, experiment, vaudeville, philosophy, and eclectic stories. Welcome to Kate’s universe!



‘Simple in conception but exceptional in its execution, Worktable is an enlightening and active meditation on the endless artistic cycle of tearing down and rebuilding. It may be easy to get lost in the highs and lows of this process in real time, but the distillation of the process McIntosh provides in her installation puts it all in perspective.’ – Stephen Eckert, Contemporary Performance, New York

La Loge

Rue de l'Ermitage, 86 - 1050 Ixelles map +32 (0)2 644 42 48

La Loge is a Brussels-based space dedicated to contemporary art, architecture and theory founded by architect Philippe Rotthier. Its aim is to develop a high-quality program that plays a critical role in today’s cultural conversations through specific and precise projects. Architects, artists, curators and cultural agents are invited to develop propositions in which they seek out the characteristic and the peculiar within their practices.
La Loge is a space where ideas, discussion and presentation coexist. Public formats vary depending on the project; from exhibitions, symposiums, screenings, lectures, and performances to events’ series. Its identity is drawn from the architectural gem that houses it, as well as from the commitment and concerns of its founders. La Loge values engagement of thought and feels particularly interested in exploring questions of space, habitat and use. The small-scale format of La Loge contributes to a context where intimate and direct conversations with its audience and the diversity of protagonists it invites can be initiated and sustained.

La Patinoire Royale / Galerie Valérie Bach is happy to present OBNOXIOUSLY HAPPY, :mentalKLINIK’s
first solo exhibition in Belgium, curated by Jérôme Sans.
« The exhibition, which brings together a whole fifteen years of their activity - more an introspective
rather retrospective - presents a symptomatic set of the multifaceted approach to their universe
which constantly blurs borders. :mentalKLINIK is an allusion to the laboratory where practice and
theory coexist, as the :mental refers to the spirit and the KLINIK to practice » (Jérôme Sans).
:mentalKLINIK is a Brussels-based artist duo composed of Yasemin Baydar and Birol Demir who
began their collaborative practice in 1998 in Istanbul. They mainly realise immersive installations and
sculptures in an experimental approach.
Their work is a mix of oxymorons and paradoxes, darkly humorous, self-contained and as much
concerned with the total effect of accelerated capitalism as with the invisible politics and dynamics
that define our everyday lives. :mentalKLINIK's oeuvre is droll yet can look very playful and fun while
at the same time it is violent, abrasive and very questioning of the world we live in. Their works range
from immersive time based installations to sculptures and objects that thwart categorisation.
:mentalKLINIK has participated in internationally renowned exhibitions, including Tomorrow Now at
MUDAM, Luxembourg in 2007; PuFF at ArtBasel 40; Art Unlimited in Switzerland in 2009; and solo
museum shows such as FreshCut at MAK Vienna in 2013 and Co-operation Would be Highly
Appreciated at SCAD Museum Georgia, USA, in 2015. Some of their solo gallery shows are That’s
Fucking Awesome curated by Jerome Sans at Galerist Istanbul in 2011; Thank You For your
Cooperation at Gallery Isabelle van den Eynde, Dubai in 2014; and 83% Satisfaction Guaranteed at
Louise Alexander Gallery in Porto Cevro, Italy, in 2015.

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.

More than just furniture, the objects issued by MANIERA are a deliberate search for collisions between the realms of architecture, design and art.

Maruani Mercier

Avenue Louise, 430 - 1050 Ixelles map +32 2 512 50 10

MARUANI MERCIER is proud to announce their seventh exhibition with Peter Halley, presenting a series of new works by the artist.

Moving to New York City had big influence on Halley’s painting style. Its three-dimensional urban grid led to geometric paintings that engage in a play of relationships between so-called "prisons" and "cells" – icons that reflect the increasing geometricization of social space in the world. Halley began to use colors and materials with specific connotations, such as fluorescent Day-Glo paint, mimicking the eerie glow artificial lighting and reflective clothing and signs, as well as Roll-a-Tex, a texture additive used as surfacing in suburban buildings.

Halley is part of the generation of Neo-Conceptualist artists that first exhibited in New York’s East Village, including Jeff Koons, Haim Steinbach, Mayier Vaisman and Ashley Bickerton. These artists became identified on a wider scale with the labels Neo-Geo and Neo-Conceptualism, an art practice deriving from the conceptual art movement of the 1960s and 1970s. Focussing on the commodification of art and its relation to gender, race, and class, neo-conceptualists question art and art institutions with irony and pastiche.

Halley's works were included in the Sao Paolo Biennale, the Whitney Biennale and the 54th Venice Biennale and represented in such museums and art institutions as the CAPC Musee d'Art Contemporain, Bordeaux; the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid; the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; the Des Moines Art Center; the Dallas Museum of Art; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Kitakyushu Municipal Museum of Art; the Museum Folkwang, Essen and the Butler Institute of American Art.

Halley lives and works in New York City.

Mendes Wood DM

Rue des Sablons, 13 - 1000 Brussels map +32 (0)2-502.09.64

Mendes Wood DM was founded in 2010 by partners Felipe Dmab, Matthew Wood and Pedro Mendes with the intent to exhibit international and Brazilian artists in a context conducive to critical dialogue and cross-pollination. Central to the gallery’s program is a concern for regional difference and individuation while fostering cosmopolitanism and collaboration. Inspired by a belief that artistic practices broaden the scope of human agency and have the power to both touch and change the world, Mendes Wood DM cultivates a program premised on conceptualism, political resistance and intellectual rigor.

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.

Get Up Stand Up: an exhibition on civil disobedience.
The advent of social media has breathed new life into public protest, just as posters did in the late 1960s. While society has evolved since then, the issues facing it remain the same: the environment, minority rights, peace, work and gender equality.

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 Nika Neelova’s first solo exhibition in a Belgian gallery, drifts (there is always ground, even at night). The word ‘drifts’ is essential to the comprehension of Neelova’s oeuvre, as her works are located in a space in which time is ambiguous and formal aspects of the work are displaced from our current points of reference. Drift references a continuous slow movement, or the motion of being carried along by a natural force such as wind or water. It alludes to both the passage of time and the power of the elements to sweep up and transform that which is in their path. The second part of the exhibition’s title, there is always ground, even at night, is a phrase from Max Frisch’s 1979 novel Man in the Holocene, in which the protagonist attempts to regain lost memories and interpret the world around him with the help of encyclopedia entries. The novel does not adhere to traditional plot progressions, preferring to represent a continuous flow of thought and the description of various strategies the protagonist uses to place himself in a larger, planetary context.

Interested in the function of architecture and manmade objects in an imagined post-human future, Neelova works at the interstice of objects and their ruins, of the concrete and the imagined. Her works place the viewer in a position where they are grasping for meaning. Recognizable aspects of the everyday objects which surround us are combined with abstract structures which are both reminiscent of real forms and yet impossible to place. Real life objects are replicated in materials which render them useless, creating both a synthetic and handmade feel to the artworks. Starting from a human scale, Neelova expands her works to reflect architectural and even geological extensions of the bodily form.

For her first exhibition with MLF | Marie-Laure Fleisch, the artist has created a narrative in which the gallery is host to ruins which have been exposed to the natural elements. Architectural structures are imagined in a possible future form, however their decay, as well as the imagined technological advances incorporated in the works, removes them from the temporal sphere. Upon arriving in the gallery, the viewer is confronted with a monumental sculpture composed of layers of compressed landscape forms, stacked one on top of another and held together by metal brackets. In another sculpture, the spectator is confronted with shapes which are reminiscent of a warped radiator, yet its delicate jesmonite forms and its lack of relationship to any known human population remove it from the human sphere. The process of casting elements in jesmonite also plays on the fragility of the object, depriving it of its structural integrity and rendering strong, industrial objects made for human use into purely decorative beings, devoid of any utility.

This exhibition explores an expansion of the artist’s research into questions of sustainability and geological references and offers a possible view of the future. One has the impression of nature taking over a built environment, with the help of new sculptures made with unfired clay and silicone which evoke both slimy organic elements and alien or animal skins. These works emphasize the lack of human presence in Neelova’s world. This is a universe in which the natural forces take over with no regard to the original purpose of the structures it is invading, and where objects created for human use and proportions become obsolete.

Nika Neelova (1987, Moscow, Russia) lives and works in London. Her solo exhibitions include: Vigo Gallery, London, UK (Upcoming); Lemniscates, Independent Art Fair, Brussels, Belgium (2017); FAULTS FOLDS FALLS, Vigo Gallery, London, England (2015); I lean to you numb as a fossil. Tell me I’m here, Ron Mandos, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (2014) and Northern Taurids, Royal British Society of Sculptors, London, England (2013). Her group exhibitions include: She sees the shadows, Mostyn, Llandudno, Wales (2018); XVII.

NICC

Rue Lambert Crickx - 1070 Anderlecht map 0485-62.51.34

a new project with Eric Croes & Jean-Baptiste Bernadet. + A performance of Céline Gillain at the opening.

NICC presents a window display exhibition entitled Le Quart d’Heure Américain featuring works by painter Jean-Baptiste Bernadet (b. 1978 Paris, lives in New York) and sculptor Eric Croes (b. 1978 La Louvière, lives in Brussels). The show includes a brightly hued suspended canvas by Bernadet that serves as a tableau backdrop for a series of sculptural pieces by Croes. The latter’s anthropomorphic models reference the American desert and take the form of a cowboy hat, cowboy boot, booze jug, and cacti. These models resemble birdhouses, alluding to treehouses and other childhood wonders. Bernadet’s dreamlike landscape connotes the bright, radiant sunset of the old film classic Gone With the Wind (1939), and together both artist’s works come together as a vivid, hallucinatory diorama.

The show’s title considers both the temporal limits and potential of this particular allotment of time. For the duo, this interval takes on various forms that range from the time spent looking at NICC’s window display, to brief meetings the artists scheduled to discuss the project, to broader conceptual or historical implications like the interval allotted at a party to inverse the age old unwritten rule where women might ask the men to dance known as Sadie Hawkins. In this exhibition, fifteen minutes can represent both an eternity and a fleeting, ephemeral moment.

Bernadet and Croes have participated in residencies together in Switzerland and France where they collaborated on numerous projects and have shown their work together in various group exhibitions. For the exhibition’s opening reception, Brussels-based artist Céline Gillain (b. 1979 Liège, lives in Brussels) will present a performance. Taking cues from the exhibition’s themes, Gillain’s performance will resemble a hybrid lecture, combining storytelling, gossip, and in-depth research into bird songs.

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. In the 70s and early 80s the organization contributed significantly to the dissemination and encouragement of the Belgian and foreign avant-garde art. 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.

Among the latest newcomers to the Brussels gallery scene is Stems Gallery, which was launched at the beginning of 2015 by Pascaline and Guillaume Smets. The gallery aims to focus on young, upcoming talent and has a penchant for American artists like Zach Reini, Leon Benn, and Matt Connolly and the New York-based Greek artist Panos Tsagaris, known for work in which he overpaints the texts on the front page of the New York Times with gold paint. 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.

Continuing the initial reasoning behind Dakota - to discover and promote up-and-coming young artists - Super Dakota is renewing this ambition and confirming its determination to be more open to international art. This decision is consistent with the perspective of contemporary art as a demanding discipline whose roots lie deep in the history of art and with the search for a dialogue between generations in order to produce creative synergy.

Templon

Rue Veydt, 13 a - 1060 Saint-Gilles map + 32 (0) 2 537 13 17

Daniel Templon founded his gallery in 1966 in Paris, at just 21 years of age. At the time, Templon was one of the French pioneers of contemporary art. Many artists, who now form part of the history of art, have been represented by the gallery : Boltanski, Buren, de Kooning, Cucchi and Warhol, among others. Daniel Templon has always been very influential in the world of art in France, notably through his magazine Art Press and his association of collectors ADIAF. In 2013, at the age of 68, the Parisian gallery owner decided to open a new space near rue Louise in the Belgian capital. Today, the gallery is still true to its principles, representing thirty or so international artists. The programme is designed to promote a dialogue between different generations : established artists of “classic” contemporary art, international artists in mid-career, and experiences of younger artists.
