Reconnaissance, the artist's gift to the Centre Pompidou - solo show
From 14 February to 23 April 2018, the Centre Pompidou is exhibiting the remarkable donation Jim Dine recently made to the Musée National d’Art Moderne: 28 paintings and sculptures produced between 1961 and 2016. A gift through which, as the artist puts it, he wanted to «pay back a cultural and personal debt to France» – namely the many years spent in Paris, which introduced him to «an aesthetic» that has enlightened his artistic decisions. In acclaiming this gesture, the exhibition strikingly retraces a unique career that is still as productive as ever.

KEHINDE WILEY - group show
As part of the AFROPOLITAN 2018 FESTIVAL, BOZAR (Brussels) welcomes five stained glass pieces by Afro-american artist Kehinde Wiley, from February 7 to May 5, 2018.
By combining the traditional medium of stained glass, its light manifesting a divine presence, with contemporary images anchored in American culture, Kehinde Wiley raises a whole host of highly topical questions, both cultural and political, about our models of society, identity and gender.
Born in 1977 in Los Angeles, Kehinde Wiley lives and works between New York and Beijing. Kehinde Wiley has recently been chosen by former President Barack Obama to paint his official portrait for the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, Washington DC.

With a two-day programme of debates, conversations and poignant reflections around the gallery sector, the Barcelona Symposium gathers together key art world figures to discuss current issues, share experiences and rethink models relevant to the gallery practice.
The symposium will count on the great contribution of Daniel Templon, one of the most established contemporary art gallerists in Europe and keynote speaker at this year's edition. In the wake of previous participation of influential figures like Thaddaeus Ropac (2017) and Marc Spiegler (2015), Daniel Templon will talk about his 50-year-long experience in the art world.
