BRUSSELS - WIELS - UN-SCENE
29.11.2008 > 22.02.2009
During the last ten years we have beheld the emergence of a new generation of artists, in Flanders, in Wallonia and in Brussels. The exhibition focuses on 20 emerging Belgian artists. This first subjective and hypothetical perspective is curated by Wiels (Devrim Bayar, Charles Gohy and Dirk Snauwaert). The survey allows to reveal the lines of force, common traits and the individual journey of each artist of this generation. Therby the public will discover the preoccupations and the talents of the artist. In doing so, this exhibition will not deceive all of those looking out for the artists of tomorrow.
Participating are Agency, Stephan Balleux, Aline Bouvy/John Gillis, Vaast Colson, François Curlet, Michael Dans, Koenraad Dedobbeleer, Lucille Desamory, Vincent Geyskens, Tina Gillen, Geert Goiris, Valérie Mannaerts, Xavier Mary, Benoît Platéus, Frédéric Platéus, Jimmy Robert, Gert Robijns, Ivo Provoost & Simona Denicolai, Harald Thys & Jos De Gruyter and Heidi Voet.
The survey will be accompanied by screenings, performances and 4 debates organised by the magazines A-Prior, Code, Janus and Sic.
