Salon de Peinture
From 17 January until 17 February, 2019, M HKA, Antwerp, is presenting the group exhibition Salon de Peinture. The exhibition is installed on the occasion of Art’s Birthday, a date first celebrated by Fluxus artist Robert Filiou after declaring 17 January the genesis day of art. As befits a French Salon, one will be dazzled by paintings of established artists such as Fred Bervoets, Luc Tuymans and Walter Swennen, or young talent such as Vedran Kopljar, Anna Zacharoff and Gijs Milnius. A later work by Philippe Vandenberg will also be on view during the exhibition.
The Gulf Between
From 27 January until 24 April, 2019, De Warande, Turnhout, presents the group exhibition The Gulf Between. Central to this exhibition is the colour gray; the absence or disappearance of color links the practice of the participating artists. In this way they create a twilight world that connects with reality in a different way. This tonal world reflects reality as we experience it as a non-objective participant: a reality where memories, visions, and estrangement left their mark. On view in the exhibition will be a Grande Noire (Large Black) by Philippe Vandenberg from 1996.
