    22/10/2017 > 11/02/2018 - Exhibition - Patrick Marchal - Do you see the king?
    A Citizen of interstellar spaaaaaaace with sculptural ambitions and metallic structures, Patrick Marchal plays with colour and iconic symbols. What matters “is the message that is conveyed”. A silversmith-visual artist, creator of Unidentified Prestigious Objects with evocative names, he explodes classical conventions of jewellery, imposing himself through a critical approach and scathing humour. No one is bound by the impossible, so therefore everything is permitted. Marked by a visual culture, his work expresses a reality that is taken to the extreme and revealed in objects of finery. The metal or steel become bombs, cartridges…and adornments! Between here and on high? This is a game of assembling contemporary materials and emblematic images to produce brilliant creations. Patrick Marchal offers us highly coloured pieces, hallmarked by excellence. His work is refined and complex, in which we slowly see the intention overtaking the aestheticised practice. With Do You See the King? the CID is presenting the artist’s largest solo exhibition and at the same time challenging the emotional, social and cultural significance of jewellery.

  • LA BOVERIE - VILLE DE LIÈGE - http://www.liege.be/culture/musees/boverie-beaux-arts-expos-liege
    25/10/2017 > 21/01/2018 - EXHIBITION - KINGDOMS OF THE SEA. ARCHIPELAGO - LA BOVERIE (LIÈGE)
    Between 25 October and 21 January 2018, La Boverie will welcome the Europalia Festival to Liège with the Archipelago exhibition. An area of confluences and meetings, the Indonesian has always been one of the most important global trade hubs where Austronesian ships, Arab dhows, Chinese junks, Iberian caravels and other vessels from the East India Companies were moored before today’s container ships and oil tankers. The history of this archipelago is based on a multitude of links and connections, where the near and far coexist, brought to prominence by an omnipresent maritime world. The sea units more than it divides and the monsoon winds have made this hub a compulsory stop for foreign merchants, clerics and diplomats with their presence leaving traces in the myths, monuments, arts and traditions of modern Indonesia. Superimposed, mixed, reinterpreted by rich and complex societies, these foreign contributions have created multiple worlds whose relationship with the sea is finely coloured and carved. The discovery of these worlds is the focus of this exhibition covering 2,500 square metres with the sea as the link and almost 300 major works as markers of a history to be discovered and admired. The partners of this exceptional exhibition are, of course, the National Museum of Indonesia in Jakarta who agreed to allow these national treasures to leave Indonesia for the first time; the Royal Royal Museum of Mariemont (Belgium); the National Navy Museum in Paris, as well as various other French and Dutch institutions. Related events (music, shadow theatre, conferences) scheduled for La Boverie, offer visitors other perspectives. This exhibition complements the two other major events part of the Europalia festival taking place in Brussels, at BOZAR “Ancestors and Rituals” and “Power and other things”.

  • MUSEUM DE REEDE - ANTWERP -
    27/10/2017 > 28/02/2018 - Exhibition - Chun Kwang Young - Chaotic Harmony II
    With the exhibition Chaotic harmony II, Korean Chun Kwang Young is the first artist to be invited by Museum De Reede (MDR) since its official opening in June 2017. Chun Kwang Young’s work is an assembly of small triangular packets wrapped in ‘hanji’ paper, bringing to life imaginary abstract shapes defined by different colours and various volumes, thus creating an infinite abstract space. By using ‘hanji’ paper as the means of expression - ‘hanji’, a type of paper made from the bark of the home-grown mulberry tree -, Chun breathes a Korean spirit and soul in his art, while at the same time he offers his international public an oeuvre rooted in universal artistic tradition. Chun Kwang Young (°1944, Honcheon, South-Korea), lives and works in Seoul, Korea. Chun Kwang Young obtained a Bachelor Degree ‘Fine Arts’ at the Hongik University of Seoul in1968, followed by a Master’s at the Philadelphia Art College in the U.S in 1971. Chun Kwang Young was selected ‘Artist of the Year’ by the South Korean National Museum of Contemporary Art in 2001. He was awarded the Presidential Prize by the Korean Ministry of Culture in 2009. Works of art by this internationally renowned artist were acquired worldwide by numerous prestigious public and private collections. Earlier this year the Boghossian Foundation/Villa Empain in Brussels dedicated a one man show to the artist. Museum De Reede (MDR) in Antwerp shows ‘work on paper’ exclusively. For that reason the reliefs and sculptures created by this East-Asian artist fit in perfectly with the exhibition programme, not just because of their shape but also because of their content.

    Even though it is not always apparent in our skies, lighting is a field in which both Belgian industry and designers excel. Since the early 1980s, the expansion of companies like Schréder and the creation of such brands as Light, Modular, Kréon, Wever&Ducré, Delta Light and Dark have opened up new opportunities for industrial designers and know-how in our country. In the space of a few decades, lighting design “made in Belgium” has forged an international name for itself, and even now is still going strong. Drawing on their technical knowledge of lighting, creators including Nathalie Dewez, Jos Devriendt, Alain Berteau, Sylvain Willenz and Frederik Delbart have oriented themselves towards a more intimate, personal notion of lighting, without surrendering to the temptation of ornamentation. Belgian lighting design proposes technical, efficient lighting alongside cutting-edge know-how and is tinged with emotions when certain designers address the subject.

An pleasant way of varying the pleasures that the Théâtre de Liège works to offer you, certainly, but it is most and foremost the opportunity to apprehend the answers that other cultures bring to the many smokescreens that the world’s pace offers us. The seventh edition of the Festival does not break with this principal and offers you a focus on Southern Africa, confronted, among others, by powerful social changes, unrestrained capitalism, xenophobia and mass migrations. We will discover the diversity of the approaches and the plurality of the artistic processes that the dancers lay out on stage as an answer, resistance or refusal to the major changes that besiege them and that are ours to clear as much as theirs.

  • GARAGE COSMOS - http://www.garagecosmos.be/
    02/02/2018 > 31/03/2018 - Exhibition - Calligraphy as Process
    From 2 February until 31 March 2018, Garage Cosmos (Brussels) presents a new exhibition that is completely dedicated to contemporary Belgian and international calligraphy. The exhibition, which is entitled « Calligraphy as process », presents a selection of works by artists who want to rethink calligraphy's visual aspects by proposing a new form. Contemporary artists have reintroduced painting into calligraphy, others poetry, in a conceptual or even destructive way, engaging with certain aspects to rediscover beautiful writing, the Greek etymology of calligraphy. Their artistic choices reflect aesthetic, literary and philosophical considerations that are specific to each of the cultural traditions of which they are the heirs. Because calligraphy has lost its immediate use as a means of communication the rules which presided over it have become outdated and its artistic potential can take on new and unprecedented directions: plural, multiple forms of writing, graphic as well as symbolic modes of communication, the appearance of pictorial languages without meaning or pseudo-scriptural under the appearance of pseudo-writing, or unreadable writing; in any case several possible readings, preventing one linear or singular reading. The surpassing as such of the limitations of a system of signs generates contemplative reflection. The new procedures established by these artists allow for the narrow framework of the autochthonous spectator, who belongs to the same culture as the producer, to be enlarged, and thus they open the works to an audience beyond the borders marked by the difference in languages of the transmitter (the artist) and the receiver (the audience). This exhibition of works signals an interest for a universal language and allows that which was only tradition to take place in contemporary art. A culture of contemporary calligraphic art is thereby constructed and put forth.

  • ADAM - BRUSSELS DESIGN MUSEUM - http://www.adamuseum.be
    07/02/2018 > 11/03/2018 - Exhibition - Peter Ghyczy, 50 years of functionalism
    Peter Ghyczy. 50 Years of Functionalism presents a captivating retrospective on Peter Ghyczy’s iconic furniture and industrial objects that form an integral part of the design history of the second half of the 20th century. Central to the exhibition is the Garden Egg Chair, designed by Peter Ghyzcy in 1968. At that time, this design icon was designed as a study to explore a new material, polyurethane, which came to dominate the trends in design and furniture making in the 1970s. Peter Ghyczy’s personal motivation was to make a comfortable outdoor chair that would always feature a dry seat come rain or shine. Since then the Garden Egg Chair has become an icon of space design featured in permanent collections of renowned museums worldwide, including the V&A Museum (UK), The Wende Museum and the Design Museum Holon. Alongside the Garden Egg Chair, Peter Ghyczy designed many more iconic furniture objects that are part of the design history of the second half of the 20th century, including his patented clamping technique for glass and metal. Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Garden Egg chair, the ADAM - Brussels Design Museum proudly presents the first solo exhibition on Peter Ghyczy to map his design innovations, spanning five decades, giving behind-the-scenes insights into the life and oeuvre of this prolific designer. Curated by Kunty Moureau, the exhibition will feature curated wall displays, a video installation and a full-scale recreation of Peter Ghyczy’s atelier.

  • BIP - BIENNIAL OF THE POSSIBLE IMAGE (LIEGE) - www.bip-liege.org
    17/02/2018 > 01/04/2018 - Exhibition - FLUO NOIR : La Boverie
    The upcoming edition of the Biennial of the Possible Image, BIP2018 is an opening to the future. Nevertheless, in terms of this beginning of the 21st century, the hopes and the utopias we permit ourselves have changed radically. Given the disastrous failings which are placing us on the brink of our own survival as a species, we have a choice between cynicism and despair, or the invention of narratives and images which renew, in their themes and in their forms, the fictions which will lead us elsewhere, without knowing where this elsewhere might be found… Certain artists today lay claim to the catastrophe as a euphoric and exuberant breeding-ground. They destroy and construct in the same movement. Without naivety but rooted in the present, they piece together images which speak of tomorrow, which hurl themselves into it headlong without knowing what it will be comprised of. Often, within the profusion, driven by a ludic and generous spirit of experimentation, knotted to the contemporary melancholy without being victims of it, these images no longer denounce, no longer resist, no longer place on trial. They instead bear witness to a living instant, to a state of resonance, to an intense presence which opens up both to doubts over and the potential of the future. Within this liberty, within these joyful apocalypses, there is an echo of Nietzsche’s amor fati, this cry of ‘loving what happens, the loving acceptance of one’s fate,’ amongst the sorrow and the bliss. There is also an open invitation to share this circulating warmth we call fellow feeling: an attraction for what we do not yet know, the mysterious effect of one body on another. For its 11th edition the BIP2018 would like to transmit an energy. To share a radiating, mutating, intense vitality; an exuberant, lucid, uninhibited movement; a presence and a present. A programme of events as well as visits and workshops will be offered to publics of every kind. From February 17, visit La Boverie and 7 other exhibition places throughout the city of Liège (Centre culturel de Liège "Les Chiroux", Les Brasseurs, Galerie Satellite, SPACE, Galerie Les Drapiers, La Châtaigneraie et le Cercle des Beaux-Arts).

The programme comprises: a photobook market with about 35 international publishers; encounters with artists; talks by artist, portfolio reviews; the "Bring Your Photobook" selfpublished photobook award.

    The Province of Liège is nowadays the depositary of the “Cirque Divers’” heritage, of its collection and of its archives. In the 80s and 90s, the Cirque Divers was a place of cultural and artistic production in the Outremeuse (En Roture) district, the heart of the history of Liège, that consisted of a bar, a gallery and the newsroom of a newspaper that welcomed over the years hundreds of artists, musicians, journalists and activists. The exhibition “The Garden of Paradox - Glance at the “Cirque Divers” in Liège”, which will take place from February to August 2018 at the Museum of Walloon Life in Liège, is the opportunity to highlight and question this unique heritage, mirror of two decades of societal life. The exhibition will be peppered with meetings, seminars, conferences, performances, parties, workshops, concerts, processions and debates. A catalogue published by Yellow Now will accompany the exhibition.

    04/03/2018 > 27/05/2018 - Exhibition - Adel Abdessemed - Otchi Tchiornie (Les Yeux Noirs)
    The formal, almost classical elegance of Adel Abdessemed’s sculptures collides with the rage, noise and anxiety of current events relayed by the media. New perceptions arise out of this “mystical” union of the light and shadows in our civilisation. Abdessemed’s artistic work is not really logical. Uncompromising and hard-hitting, he confers a quasi mythological dimension to the atrocities around the world, by transposing them into marble, ivory or metal: a young Vietnamese girl fleeing her burning village, a Jewish child from the Warsaw ghetto, a maltreated prisoner in Guantanamo… An eternal exile drifting between Eros and Thanatos, the cosmosand hubris, Abdessemed uses art history as an analytical tool to explore power and the media. In the manner of a surgeon, he examines, diagnoses and cuts into absolute fanaticisms, military violence and political controversies without concession. This “Phenomenology of cruelty” is developedlike blocks of unmitigated, powerful, overt sensation, which he leaves the spectator to define and appropriate. Presenting a series of new works at the Museum of Contemporary Arts, Adel Abdessemed offers us an “Archeology of the present” through our relationship to dominance, propaganda and current events.

    25/03/2018 > 30/06/2018 - Exhibition - TOGETHER ! New community architecture
    Housing is scarce – that much has become evident in the last few years. As real estate prices in big cities continue to skyrocket, conventional ideas of housing development prove unable to meet demands. The reaction to these challenges has been a silent revolution in contemporary architecture – towards collective building and living. Using models, films, and walk-in displays, the exhibition "Together! The New Architecture of the Collective" addresses this global phenomenon by presenting a broad array of collective building and living projects from Europe, Asia, and the United States. An overview of historical precedents for the current wave of collectives demonstrates that the idea of collectivity has been a recurring theme in the history of architecture, from the reformist ideas of the nineteenth century to the hippies and squatters of the twentieth who touted the slogan "Make love, not lofts".

    Exhibition in cooperation with Wallonia-Brussels Design-Mode (WBDM) as part of the biennale in contemporary design of the ADAM. ‘Domestic Tales’ invites to look at design in a different way, hustling the dichotomy between subject and object. A tale for children, which, thanks to an open staging and interactive animations, explains the importance of design and its cultural value. But above all, an experience that allows us to better understand the objects that surround us, in our homes and in our cities, which, as the characters in a story, have meaning and give meaning to life. This exhibition is a tribute to life, ours and that of the design objects: everyday interfaces, custodians of valuable legacies of the past, social and aesthetic experiences, production models and sustainable products, vectors of innovative scenarios for a better future.

    01/07/2018 > 21/10/2018 - Exhibition - Limits to growth !
    Whilst numerous protest movements are expressing their outrage of experts and citizens alike, in theface of the dominant economic and social systems, the CID is questioning the role that design can play in this social movement.Condemned by numerous economists, as well as by designers and sociologists of objects, the capitalist system has undeniably entered a critical phase. In spite of the warnings expressed by such high-profile figures as Victor Papanek and Jean Baudrillard since the 1970s, the (over)production of objects, by means of processes in which ecology and ethics are swept aside or sidestepped, continues to flood the world. But we are now seeing that resistance is becoming organised. Born into a generation whose values are changing— ownership is no longer the ultimate goal of professional success, whereas the concept of personnel development or self-fulfilment is gaining ground—young designers no longer get a sense of satisfaction from having produced a new chair or other consumer item. They are now passionate about the research process, working methods and tools that are more respectful of the environment and resources, and which promote a fairer distribution of profits. Open sourceand social design are bringing about new practices in which profit is no longer the driving force.So can we consider design in another way? Can we use design methods to limit or reduce the number of objects and goods that are accumulating on the planet? Which projects invite us to reduce the consumption of raw materials and fossil fuels? Is there such a thing as not-for-profit design? Could design become a testing ground to reverse the dominant economic processes? Can design elude the obligation of growth?

    01/09/2018 > Exhibition - Kartell: A Tribute to Ettore Sottsass
    Within the framework of the programme 2017, ADAM – Brussels Design Museum will be to hosting a tribute to Ettore Sottsass, realized in collaboration with the Kartell Museo and shown during the Autumn and Winter 2017. This exhibition will be part of the Brussels Design September festival. The exhibition “Kartell. A Tribute to Ettore Sottsass” will present a comprehensive overview of the project by Ettore Sottsass work for Kartell. The exhibition will be mainly focused on the collection of objects he designed for Kartell in 2004. In 2014 Kartell paid tribute to the master of design Ettore Sottsass with a collection of original projects he designed 10 years earlier but that had never been created. With six vases, two stools and a lamp, the collection expresses a marked affinity with the aesthetics of Memphis, the famous design collective founded by Sottsass. With post-futurist volumes, the stools and vases have bright colours and express many aspects of Sottsass’ approach to design. The same colour palette is repeated in the “Daisy” hanging lamp with an unusual application of rectangular plastic shapes to a central disk. The exhibition is also enriched by references to the environment created by Sottsass on the occasion of the exhibition “Italy the New Domestic landscape” at MoMA (1972) and to the collection “Kartell goes Sottsass. A Tribute to Memphis”: chairs by Philippe Starck, Patricia Urquiola and Piero Lissoni covered with fabrics designed by Michele de Lucchi, Nathalie du Pasquier, and Ettore Sottsass himself and created in collaboration with Memphis.

    International triennale of design & social innovation Liège, Belgium 05/10-25/11/2018 RECIPROCITY 2018 consists of exhibitions, two colloquia, a research project and various workshops that take place in Liège, in its province and the neighboring cities in Belgian and Dutch Limburg and Achen. An international triennale that aims to foster open debate on the role of design - products, services, graphics, and architecture - as a vehicle for sustainable change and social innovation. The 2018 edition will feature a dozen exhibitions, two colloquiums, a research/action project, and many workshops. Although centred in Liege, the triennale’s scope will be broad: events will be located throughout the province, plus the nearby towns of Belgian and Dutch Limburg, and in the German border city of Aachen. In 2018, three central questions will be posed. How can design education play a social role, and offer a space for critical research? How should architects and designers respond to the (new) paradigms of fragility and insecurity? How can co-design and active participation - a combination of designers, students and inhabitants - help address the challenges of urban regeneration and the revitalisation of the social fabric?

    23/11/2018 > Exhibition - Night Fever: A Design History of Culture Club
    Nightclubs and discos are the epitome of contemporary culture. They merge architecture and interior design with sound, light, fashion, furnishing, graphics and visual effects to create a modern Gesamtkunstwerk. As place of cultural experimentation for subcultures and avant-garde, they question the established codes of social life and offer individual and collective freedom by playing with different identities and realities. If the 20th century was the age of pop culture, the nightclub was probably its most powerful design expression. Night Fever is the first exhibition to examine the design history of the nightclub. It will feature exhibits from design, art, architecture, music and media including films and original photographs, flyers, posters, records covers, models, furniture, magazines as well as 1:1 installations that will immerse the visitors in a journey of creative experimentation.
