Exhibition - Jean Glibert - Peintre en bâtiment

From 27/10/2017 to 07/01/2018 - CPI : 26/10/2017 - PREVIEW: : 26/10/2017

Since the late 1960s the painter Jean Glibert (Brussels, 1938) has pursued a creative logic in his work that is close to that of the architect. From the method of finalising the designs through to completion and reception by the client, his work displays the same principal characteristics. Like an architect, he too works on the constructive image of the environment. Push and pull, stresses and rhythms... are all present in his work. With Jean Glibert form and matter are not autonomous: colour is never a mere coating; light is always more than a matter of illumination. Form, matter, colour and light always play a role in the organisation and sensibility of the total space. Jean Glibert. Peintre en bâtiment is more than a retrospective. The exhibition was conceived in close cooperation with the artist, defining not only the scenographic device but also the visual interventions that establish a dialogue with the Centre for Fine Arts as designed by Victor Horta. Light is also shed on Jean Gilbert's methodologies through the objects and series of photographs presented at the exhibition. An initiative of the Ministry of Culture, produced by the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles (Contemporary Plastic Arts Directorate / Architecture Unit), in partnership with BOZAR and the CIAUD, with the backing of Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles International and Wallonie-Bruxelles Architecture. Curators: Emmanuel De Meulemeester, Michel De Visscher and Laurent Jacob
