  • FRAC DUINKERKE - http://www.fracnpdc.fr
    28/01/2017 > 27/08/2017 - 'Als objecten thuis komen', vanuit de collectie van het FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais
    Objecten vullen ons leven, ze zijn de vorm waarin ons dagdagelijkse is gegoten. Wij verzamelen objecten, we bezitten ze en gooien ze weer weg, een nooit ophoudende stroom. Nieuwe objecten, gebruikt of gerecycleerd, hoe kiezen we de voorwerpen die onze wereld vullen? Waar komen deze dingen vandaan en welk verhaal dragen ze met zich mee? Je auto of je smartphone, maar ook je designmeubel, allemaal zijn ze de vrucht van de globale stroom met zijn schone en soms ranzige kantjes. We zien al deze objecten zo vaak dat we ze niet meer zien. Ze komen thuis bij ons en wij komen thuis bij hen. In onze maatschappij waarin dingen hebben enorm belangrijk is, staan sommige voorwerpen zo centraal dat ons leven errond is gebouwd. Hoe als mens weerstaan aan de macht van dingen? Het Frac Nord-Pas de Calais is de enige in zijn soort die van bij de start designvoorwerpen heeft opgenomen in zijn collectie. Meubels, artefacten, sculpturen, schilderijen, video’s ... veel kunstenaars hebben alledaagse dingen uit hun context gerukt, hebben het hernoemd, hebben er nieuwe gebruiksvormen voor bedacht. De kapotgerukte fauteuils van Barbara Visser of de stoel van Philippe Ramette kiezen voor een gewelddadige mise-en-scène, terwijl de video van Gerard Byrne over de automobielindustrie en die van Claude Closky over modemagazines met de nodige ironie kijken naar de mens aangepast aan zijn omgeving. Designers zoals Tejo Remy, Konstantin Grcic of Matali Crasset maken van hun werk een forum voor maatschappijkritiek. Geïnspireerd op de overpeinzingen van Bruno Latour over “harige objecten” die dieper ingaat op het themavan traditionele fetisjen, toont deze tentoonstelling ook voorwerpen en hun ingebedde betekenis.

    03/04/2017 > 12/11/2017 - Season 2017 - Stijn Cole (3/4/2017 - 30/7/2017)
    From 3 april onwards, the Château de Chimay will start its touristic season since the launch of its digital circuit in 2013. After Marie-Jo Lafontaine, Koen Vanmechelen, Hans Op de Beeck and Jean-Luc Moerman, Stijn Cole will present his work in the Maison des Artistes and the Château de Chimay. Stijn Cole is born in Ghent in 1978 and lives and works in Chimay. Cole uses a wide variety of techniques but what links his work is the light: in his videos, scale models, sculptures, paintings, drawings and installations, he plays with the changing effect of light. He often makes site-specific work and likes to reveal the challenges of the buildings, preferably buildings with a heavy history. Visitors can visit the Château with an Ipad and discover its history through a projection of a 3D film. An innovation that clearly convinces the visitors as the Castle attracts an international public that grows every year (14.283 visitors in 2015). The Château de Chimay’s theatre will also reveal its new music and theatre programme under direction of Anne Pingen. The visit to the castle also offers the occasion to discover - or rediscover - the castle’s gastronomic restaurant, LO’riginale, or to organise a banquet or reception in the Relais des Princes (according to a table d'hôtes formula for lunch, tea time or dinners in group). In both cases, you can enjoy the cooking skills of chef Loïc Pierard, a modern cuisine based on local products that are hard to resist. The Château de Chimay offers the possibility for children to follow workshops in which they can discover the magical world of fairy tales, but also enjoy cooking, crafts and walks, or invite their friends for a piece of pie during birthday parties in the castle. Nanny Fanny is in charge of everything.

Whether it iscreating furniture, objects, accessories, eating utensils or architecturallayouts, nendo respondsto the most broad-ranging projects with the same natural rigour, charged with enormous inherent poetry. Now aged 39, Oki Sato has enthusiastically accepted the CID’s invitation and for four months willtake over all the interior and exterior spaces: stables, the hay store, atrium, north wing, the square courtyard and the oval courtyard… His exhibition will form an exclusivecreation, devised in close complicity with the location. This will be a European premiere on such a scale.

  • HISTORY OF LIEGE - CITY, CAPITAL, METROPOLIS -
    20/09/2017 > History of Liège
    A monumental book on the history of Liège in Belgium will be released on September 23. This volume meets a real need as the last general history of Liège is now more than 25 years old and hard to come by. It is being published simultaneously in French, English, Dutch and German by Les Grandes Conférences Liégeoises (GCLG) and Marot Publishers (Brussels) on the occasion of the University of Liège’s bicentenary. This sumptuous edition, written by a team of eminent scholars and experts under the leadership of Bruno Demoulin, will appeal not only to those with a keen interest in history but also to a wide general readership. With over 400 illustrations of historical documents, beautiful examples of artistic heritage, and photographs and maps made to order, the book gives the art and culture of Liège the showcase it deserves. Aptly titled History of Liège: City, Capital, Metropolis, this overview enables us to experience the history and the art of the city and its surrounding territory – the former prince-bishopric of Liège. It also provides insight into the institutional challenges the city faces and its privileged position in the heart of Europe, a position that is the key to a promising future.

Throughout his life, the collector, and intimate friend of César, gathered together artwork ranging from 1870 to 2000. As a lawyer, he invested in the estates of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. These professional opportunities contributed to fuel his artistic passion. Pieces by Paul Sérusier, Maurice Denis, Marc Chagall, Antoni Tapiès, Robert Combas and of course César, can all be found amongst his treasures. During the auction, more than 200 20th century paintings and sculptures will be dispersed. The sales total is estimated at €3M. François Tajan, Artcurial Deputy Chairman and personal friend of Paul Lombard will hold the gavel.

    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”.

    22/10/2017 > 14/01/2018 - Exhibition - On Paradise, Jompet Kuswidananto - MAC's (Grand-Hornu)
    As part of the Europalia festival which this year is celebrating Indonesia, the MAC’s will be presenting On Paradise, a brand new installation by the transdisciplinary artist Jompet Kuswidananto (born in 1976, lives and works in Yogyakarta). Questioning the connections between politics and religion, this work refers to a crucial episode in his country’s history: the rebellion by a section of the population against the colonial authorities in July 1888 in the region of Banten (Java). Using archive documents, Jompet Kuswidananto emphasises here the major role played by religious leaders who, interpreting a series of natural disasters around that time (the eruption of Krakatoa, the malaria and plague epidemics) as the portents of “the end of the world”, mobilised the Indonesians against the infidel colonials, calling for a “holy war” and thus promising them their place in “heaven”. But the installation specifically designed for the large room in the MAC’s is more related to theatre and phantasmagoria, playing out this troubled time through various, visually striking symbolic objects, such as the chandeliers strewn across the floorwhich singularly illustrate the underlying causes of the fall of the colonial power and a local aristocracy who had adopted its status symbols.

    22/10/2017 > 14/01/2018 - Exhibition - Cabinet d'amateurs - Jacques André - Buku-Buku
    Jacques André, born in 1969, like many other ‘inactive’ people of his generation, calls for the raising of cultural capital. He first defined himself as an “unemployed” artist, focusing on this issue in his “Onem blue” unemployment office-coloured interventions and installations. The colour was reproduced as mundanelyas possible, using paint-mixing machines in paint shops. Fascinated by the outburstsof May’68 and thesubsequent transition period towards postmodernity, Jacques André turned hisquestioning, critical gaze to themisrepresentationand commercialisation of the hippie utopia, notably by its less scrupulous heirs, the yuppies (young urban professionals), young executives orengineers who wereclose to the high finance ofupmarket metropolises in spite of their“cool” appearances.They in turn were themselves theforerunners of the ultimate fraud which engendered young, disillusioned multibillionaires, including traders and otherhigh-level swindlers,swanking about in limousinesinCosmopolis. Confessing that he“doesn’t know how to do anything except consume”, the artist has thus developed since the 1990sa conceptual artistic practice based on ready-mades that question our relationship with material possessions and property. Hismethod consists of multiple purchasing and accumulation of identical objects (most frequently books, CDs and DVDs, considered as “cultural indicators” of our times) and then exhibiting them—in carefullystructured piles orshowcases, onScandinavian shelves or heaped up under picture rails, etc. This work, which is also not averse to presenting great aesthetic value, thus deals ironically with the excesses of consumerism and misrepresentation, by the markets, of countercultural utopias. In its Rebel Rebelexhibition dedicated to rock, the MAC’s presented his Arters installation (i.e. “Repeat purchases, attempts at exhaustion and reconstitution of stocks”), an orderly accumulation of vinyl records in their sleeves. At a time when political and technological conditions are being established increasingly overtly, which will enable a vengeful eradication of critical thinking resulting notably from Debord’s situationist stances, Foucault’s socio-historic studies and Deleuze’s philosophical research, the MAC’s is now presenting an Amateur’s Cabinet containing a wider range of creations by this artist who has placed the “unemployed person”—who has nothing to lose or to gain—as “the best analyst of what society is offering to its consumers as values and objects.” (Jacques André, Voyage du temps perdu, unsigned introduction, Editions du Souffle, Brussels, 2003, not paginated).

    27/10/2017 > 07/01/2018 - Exhibition - Jean Glibert - Peintre en bâtiment
    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.

A Buddha next to a medieval Christ, ancient writings alongside calculating machines... Museum L, with 32,000 items in its collection, explores some new and unusual encounters that tell us about the world and our humanity. Art works are not the only thing on display: the museum also presents the UCL’s scientific collections. Natural history specimens, archaeological and ethnographic objects and scientific inventions are all on show in 2,580 m² of exhibition space at the heart of a building that is a landmark of modern Belgian architecture. Museum L is not like other museums: it is a place of living dialogue and exciting discovery.

    21/11/2017 > 22/11/2017 - Topeng Cirebon et Medium, deux spectacles de danse au Théâtre de Liège
    Le Festival EUROPALIA place, cette année, l’Indonésie à l’honneur. Dans ce cadre, le Théâtre de Liège vous présente avec fierté deux spectacles exceptionnels le temps d’un soir. En premier lieu, Medium conçu par le danseur javanais Rianto. Les maîtres de sa région lui ont enseigné la danse lengger qui balaie les différences entre les genres. Le danseur perpétue cette tradition appelée à disparaître, ce petit bout de culture, cet espace mental intermédiaire entre le masculin et le féminin, les coutumes anciennes et les principes religieux, l’existence traditionnelle et la vie contemporaine. Lui succédera le spectacle Topeng Cirebon, où nous découvrirons les danses de masques de Losari, originaires de Cirebon situé sur la côte Nord de Java, enracinées dans la culture indigène et créées pour répandre la foi de l’Islam, il y a 400 ans. Dramatiques et costumées, elles se déroulent lors des récoltes et des célébrations villageoises pour rassembler et disperser les forces surnaturelles négatives. Ces chorégraphies hypnotiques sont imprégnées de mysticisme et transfèrent, raconte-t-on, des pouvoirs spéciaux à leurs porteurs. Deux ébouriffants dépaysements ! Spectacle coprésenté par le Concertgebouw Brugge et La Comète – Scène nationale de Châlons-en-Champagne Programme complet et dates de tournée sur www.europalia.be

    22/11/2017 > 25/02/2018 - Exhibition - From Belgium with light - Belgians almost invented light
    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.

    26/01/2018 > 24/02/2018 - Festival Pays de Danses - Focus on South Africa
    The Festival Pays de Danses, unique platform for the artists of the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, also dedicate a chunk of its programming to a land and to the specificities that make it. 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.

    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.
