See You There - 6 September 2018
After the summer break, the new art season starts with a bit of a bang in the Belgian capital, coinciding with the 11th edition of the Brussels Gallery Weekend. This year’s headquarters are located in the beautiful Vanderborght building, which not only serves as a meeting and information point but also hosts brand new festival “A Performance Affair”, an exhibition dedicated to young Brussels talent, pop-up bar Le Toast, and various workshops and book launches.With 39 galleries and over a dozen institutions and non-profit spaces participating, the massive program can feel a bit overwhelming, which is why we selected the 13 must-sees for you.
Maruani Mercier presents “New Paintings”, a solo show bringing together recent works by American artist Peter Halley, who is widely known for his neon-colored and geometric paintings. His works are often inspired by the three-dimensional urban grid of New York City, where he lives and works. Halley is considered as a central figure of the Neo-Conceptualist movement of the 1980s.
