The inter-generational exhibition Avec le temps - In time, curated by Tim Goossens, will include nine contemporary artists who live and work in Belgium. A number of the artists included in this exhibition are either debuting in the United States or presenting installations created especially for the occasion.
The title of the exhibition is derived from a song by the late Leo Ferré, and the works included bear references to time: either in a formal time-based, performative way or in direct reference to history, nostalgia, memory, reproduction and a fading in time. Encompassing artists from both a newer generation and those that are internationally recognized, the exhibition aims to give an overview of the Belgian contemporary art scene of today. This flourishing scene capitalizes on the country's central location and its long history of artistic support to create a productive art center.
Participating artists: Stephan Balleux, Dirk Braeckman, Koenraad Dedobbeleer, Edith Dekyndt, Philip Metten, Willem Oorebeek, Els Opsomer, Fabrice Samyn and Pieter Vermeersch.
Curated by Tim Goossens.
