Jan Fabre

My Queens - solo show


With “My Queens”, Fabre honours the important women in his life while simultaneously creating a dialogue with the Flemish artistic tradition within the historic setting of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.

Amongst the works of baroque master Jacques Jordaens, Fabre presents eight monumental marble bas-reliefs of women close to him. Their regal profile contrasts with their paper party hats. These pieces represent the noble character of the artist’s friendships and the festive atmosphere connected with it.

In the centre of the room, the work “My Future Queen” can be found: a white marble sculpture of Her Royal Highness Princess Elisabeth, Duchess of Brabant, also wearing a party hat. The statue of the Crown Princess is at the centre of different artistic dialogues in the space and stands right between the present and the past, looking towards the future.

Chiharu Shiota: Beyond Time - solo show


Acclaimed installation and performance artist Chiharu Shiota will create an awe-inspiring, site-specific installation of thread within the beautiful 18th-century Chapel in spring 2018. Embracing all who enter within an extraordinary experience, Shiota’s project will reference the Chapel’s rich history and years of human presence, dating back to 1744, making poignant allusion to the bells that were rung, the songs that were sung, and the lives that revolved around it, from cradle to grave.

Jan Fabre

JAN FABRE. STIGMATA. ACTIONS & PERFORMANCES 1976 - solo show


‘Stigmata’ focuses on Jan Fabre’s actions and performances since 1976. A journey around the memory of Jan Fabre, involving 40 years of creation, it has the merit of interrogating, not the action or the performance, but the way to exhibit it, the way to present it.

The mise en scene by Jan Fabre and Germano Celant, an overview of all performances and actions, gathers glass trays, objects, drawings, photographs, artefacts, costumes, models which he calls “thought models”, films, works in blue ballpoint pen, and more.

Zeugma. Le grand oeuvre drolatique - solo show

Jim Dine

In Vivo - performance


On the occasion of the Paris Reconnaissance show dedicated to Jim Dine’s substantial donation to Musée National d’Art Moderne - Centre Pompidou, the american artist will be presenting ‘House of Words’, a reading and performance accompagnied with bassist Daniele Roccato and pianist Fabrizio Ottaviucci, at Centre Pompidou. 

Now world famous as a poet and artist, Jim Dine (b. Cincinatti, 1935) moved to New York in 1958. After making a name for himself with his happenings, he then turned to paintings that combined Abstract Expressionism with Pop images to novel effect. In painting and sculpture, prints and drawings of great diversity, Dine has developed over the last sixty years an intensely personal iconography, a highly distinctive voice.

The artist has always been fascinated by the interaction in between words and images, and he has been been publishing poetry since 1969. First written and reworked on the walls, his poems transform writing into a physical experience.

Curators : Sophie Duplaix (MNAM) - Cristina Agostinelli. The ‘In Vivo’ cycle is dedicated to performative practices.

Gérard Garouste

Diane et Actaeon - solo show


Gérard Garouste, one of the most popular French artists of his generation, is marking spring 2018 with three new exhibitions in Paris: at Galerie Templon, the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature, and the Beaux-Arts de Paris.

For his exhibition at the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature (March 13 – July 1), Gérard Garouste has taken a close interest in the myth of Diana and Actaeon, one of the most beautiful tales recounted by the Latin poet Ovid (43 BC – 17 AD) in his Metamorphoses: The myth, that examines perception, desire and capture, offered the perfect subject for Gérard Garouste. The result, going far beyond simply fulfilling a first 2015 commission awarded by the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature, was a series of studies, drawings and canvasses all based on the theme ; providing an echo of older works illustrating the same theme and forming part of the permanent collections.

La photographie française existe… Je l’ai rencontrée - group show


Back in the eighties, Jean-Luc Monterosso traveled to New York where he met MoMA’s photography collection curator. When he asked about his opinion on Contemporary French Photography, the curator simply replied : « It doesn’t exist ». Thirty years later, on the occasion of his departure from the MEP, Jean-Luc Monterosso answers back with an extensive exhibition dedicated to French Photography from the eighties to nowadays under the forms of a really personal and subjective narrative.

Exibition curator: Jean Luc Monterosso, Maison Européenne de la Photographie Director

Jim Dine

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

KEHINDE WILEY - solo 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.
