    Exposition - Tanagras
    Le Musée royal de Mariemont voit ses collections grecques et romaines s’enrichir de Tanagras, délicates statuettes en terre cuite, et de verres antiques, grâce aux dons de Madame Colette et Monsieur Pierre d’Aubreby. Un très bel ensemble de délicates statuettes en terre cuite, réunies par Madame Colette d’Aubreby, est venu récemment compléter les collections permanentes du Musée royal de Mariemont. Ces figurines moulées, généralement connues sous le nom de « Tanagras » (du nom d’une ville grecque où les premières séries ont été retrouvées à la fin du 19e siècle), très appréciées du public, font donc leur apparition, pour la première fois, dans les vitrines du Musée. Les « Tanagras » représentent d’élégantes jeunes femmes drapées, des adolescents et des enfants, des danseuses, des musiciennes et quelques divinités, comme Aphrodite et Éros. Ces statuettes offrent ainsi aux visiteurs un témoignage précieux sur la vie quotidienne et la religion de la Grèce antique. Dès le 5e siècle avant J.-C, mais principalement aux 4e et 3e siècles avant J.-C., plusieurs centres de production, tant en Grèce que dans le sud de l’Italie, en Asie mineure et en Égypte, ont contribué à la diffusion de ces statuettes qui séduisent par leur silhouette élancée et leur visage rêveur, ainsi que par les quelques traces conservées de leur fragile polychromie.

  • BRUSSELS DESIGN SEPTEMBER - http://www.designseptember.be
    Focus : Ceramics
    Every year, Brussels Design September choses to showcase an artistic medium, through exhibitions, conferences and an art and craft course. This focus allows us to shed light on the actors in the creative sector, which contributes to the pride of Brussels' know-how. The reasons that led us to develop a path around ceramics in Brussels are simple but essential: the development of our creators, the excitement of commercial activity, and the excellent education provided in the Brussels region. Our wish is to give place to the meeting between the work of the Brussels creators and the public. More than 10 workshops and places of creation will open their doors to the public for a weekend where everyone will have the opportunity to present their work methods and creations. In addition, a group exhibition, located Rue des Palais in AREA 42, is curated by Jean-François Declerc and Aurélien Gendras.

    Exhibition - Adrian Cruz chez Le Studio (Lucia Esteves)
    In 1946, my grandfather Chema, started to work with resin in his small atelier in Mexico City. He created figures such as toys, buttons and household products, but his creativity went beyond the commercial use of the resin. He started to experiment with new forms, encapsulating flowers and insects to create magnificent artworks. When I was a child I used to play with these objects, fascinated by the translucency and the three-dimensional illusion that light creates through the resin. After finishing my studies in Architecture in Italy, I realized that those objects were still in my mind waiting to be revived and played again. Today, using the unique and sophisticated technique that Chema developed, I mix colours inspired by the Mexican culture with pure forms in onyx and marble as learnt through my architect's journey. Through the objects that my grandfather created, he transmitted me his passion. Although I never met him, each piece I design is like discovering something new about Chema.

  • CID - centre d'innovation et de design au Grand-Hornu - http://www.cid-grand-hornu.be
    23/06/2019 > 13/10/2019 - Exhibition - Design on air
    Invisible, intangible, immaterial. Yet omnipresent and vital. No life on earth is possible without air. Scientists and philosophers share their fascination for air with contemporary designers. The Design on Air exhibition at CID in Grand-Hornu explores the relationships between design and air, the most ethereal, and at the same time the most essential of the four traditional elements. Air – at least for now – is free, belonging to everyone. But in our Anthropocene age, it is also becoming an increasingly threatened resource, in need of protection. How are designers reacting to this? How do they deal with air? What does air mean to them? And can design justifiably be compared to air? In Design on Air, the theme of air is approached from diverse angles, from air as an inflatable material to blowing air as a formative and technical procedure. From the movement of air to the quality of air. Sometimes, the priority is a search for material expertise or innovation in technical production, or such functional issues as safety and comfort, or it might be about the magic of the rarefied, the fleeting, the ethereal. The one need not cancel out the other.

  • LABIOMISTA -
    06/07/2019 > LABIOMISTA opens its gates
    On 6 July 2019, LABIOMISTA officially opens its gates to the public. This unique, evolving work of art by Koen Vanmechelen is a vigorous hybrid of art, science and society. “LABIOMISTA is a homage to the mix of life itself,” says the artist, who realised this project in close partnership with the city of Genk. LABIOMISTA is the embodiment of Koen Vanmechelen’s art and philosophy. Spanning 20 years, his oeuvre is internationally acclaimed for its exploration of the intersections between art, science and community. The artist is motivated by his belief in art as a catalyst for mutual understanding and as a guiding light in our search for answers to the great challenges of the 21st century – in particular - the relationship between nature and culture, and sustainable community development. LABIOMISTA is an atypical project, emerging from a remarkable collaboration between the artist and the city of Genk. “As the most culturally diverse city in Flanders, we share Koen Vanmechelen’s conviction that diversity explains the present and shapes the future. That’s why we are confident to give him free rein with LABIOMISTA, and will work with him to produce a bountiful harvest in the fertile ground of Zwartberg, both in terms of artistic experiments and social redevelopment,” says Wim Dries, the Mayor of Genk. Four years have passed between the ground-breaking at LABIOMISTA and its public opening. It will continue to develop and mature into an exciting meeting place for diversity of all stripes, where universal socio-ecological topics take shape and become the subject of artistic discourse.

  • ESTHER VERHAEGHE ART CONCEPTS - www.estherverhaeghe.com
    03/09/2019 > 03/10/2019 - Exhibition - Jacqy duVal
    Jacqueline Dehond and Koenraad Uyttendaele together comprise the duo of artists Jacqy duVal. They both studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, and went on to have careers as a designer and an art restorer, respectively. Inspired by their understanding of and passion for art history, since 2009 they have been working together on a body of abstract paintings. Drawing inspiration from a geometric motif on the walls and ceiling of a room in the historic Hospital of St. John in Bruges which dates from the 16th century, they inflect its forms on canvases of raw linen, in a subtle exploration of colours. This magnificent colouristic exercise, in all its astonishing precision and assurance, is undoubtedly informed by their knowledge of the history of art and the decorative arts. The initial composition is done on the computer screen. The colour samples are then printed on paper and a full-scale test is carried out, with each of the flat tints on paper pinned onto the canvas, and finally the raw linen canvas is sized with rabbit-skin glue and painted with the pigments and casein. This is a slow, thoughtful, intense process. The compositions are developed in very small formats, which are enclosed in Plexiglas boxes like small precious icons, and on very large, majestic canvases with an irradiant presence. Other paintings, monochrome, have a slightly flattened circular form. This is the circle formed by the menhirs of Stonehenge, a megalithic monument consisting of a set of concentric circles, erected in the south of England between 2800 and 1100 BCE.

  • BRUSSELS DESIGN SEPTEMBER - http://www.designseptember.be
    04/09/2019 > 15/12/2019 - Exhibition - Marie-Ange Guilleminot shows her work in the Horta Museum
    The Horta Museum invites the French visual and performance artist Marie-Ange Guilleminot in this masterpiece of art nouveau. It is a logical dialogue between the architect, famous for his savoir-faire and refinement, and the special world of Marie-Ange Guilleminont, known for her alphabet of forms and sculptures that can be ‘activated’. Both artists’ savoir-faire expresses a unique personal vision. Marie-Ange Guilleminot, who previously had exhibitions in the house of Pierre Loti, Villa Savoye and Villa Noailles in France, loves to dive into places that have an interesting history, while maintaining her DNA as a visual artist. In the Horta Museum, she plays with the curves of the building, its transparencies and light. As if the works have always been there. At the same time, they invite the visitor to a new experience. There is a natural dialogue between both artists and their influences: from William Morris over Japan, a passion they both share. The trajectory illustrates a passion for materials: silk, cotton, wool, .. Take the work ‘Le livre de seuil’ that welcomes the visitor at the entrance: it has poetic proportions that bring the daily life in the house back to life in a game of correspondences with materials: exotic wood, stone, bronze,.. The scenography of the exhibition takes in the entire house. There are plates in ‘Service alvéloe’ in the living room, a play with light and matter in ‘Iko’ and ‘Kimono mémoire de Hiroshima’ next to the bath, the ‘Garde-robe made in France’ in the room of the master of the house…In Horta’s office, you can see ‘Paravent’ and ‘Salon de transformation’ with its special shape on a big table, with next to it ‘Chapeau-vie’, a textile work and iconic piece by the artist. Marie-Ange Guilleminont loves dialogues. And she does so with respect for this architectural gem. (Nathalie Guiot, curator)

  • BRUSSELS DESIGN SEPTEMBER - http://www.designseptember.be
    05/09/2019 > 30/09/2019 - ​Brussels Design September 2019
    Over the years, Brussels Design September has become the annual flagship event for design enthusiasts. For one month, the city hosts an array of over 100 not-to-be-missed cultural and commercial events offering a meeting platform between the public and a great number of Belgian and international designers. Brussels Design September will feature exhibitions, conferences, open houses, an Arts & Crafts tour, Commerce Design Brussels and Brussels Design Market. A multitude of dialogues between designer architects and design lovers as well as the chance to discover urban trails between the many pop-up stores, shops, workshops, galleries and cultural spaces. This year’s edition will be marked by the latest trends in Belgian and international design and will be highlighted by the multi-disciplinary spirit of different influences, movements, crafts and professions of current day design. Once again, we want to reinforce the image of Brussels as an attractive and dynamic capital: we will highlight the innovation of our young designers through various events related to Design, in order to enhance the commercial attractiveness of the city. These few past years, Brussels has incontestably developed itself as city of Design. Thanks to the talent and the ingeniousness of our designers. The place of Design in the city starts to have its noble letters. Design September always wanted to connect with the city and represent its various exaltations and diversities. The importance of the event and its influence is shaped more and more: design in its most various forms takes an increasingly important place in the daily life of Brussels: urban furniture, installations, lights,... Furthermore innovations of our designers find its place in the urban landscape. It has contributed in a positive way to the city’s reputation and to its economic and tourist activity. The city of Brussels needs events that put creativity and innovation in the front row. Design September, alongside with the Region Brussels-Capital, the City of Brussels and many institutional and private partners, is proud to contribute to it. This year, Brussels Design September introduces a couple of new events, especially the creation of the Contemporary Design Market and the launch of five limited editions. There shall be exhibitions by renowned designers in iconic places in the city such as, Horta House, ADAM – Brussels Design Museum, and for the first time the Children’s Museum. This is done to reinforce the cultural offer of this 2019 edition. Brussels Design Market will highlight the image of Brussels, a city of vintage: a vintage route in the city will once again mark the 27th edition of the Brussels Design Market, which is the biggest vintage market in Europe. The Arts & Crafts itinerary brings a focus this year on ceramics. Workshops and ceramics designers will be highlighted . Moreover a collective exhibition will be presented at the AREA 42 located rue des Palais.

    Ces 7 et 8 septembre, le site du Grand-Hornu se met sur son 31 afin de fêter dignement les journées du Patrimoine. Haut lieu industriel, riche d’un passé minier glorieux, le Grand-Hornu constitue un projet de ville, exemple d’urbanisme fonctionnel européen au début de la révolution industrielle. De style néoclassique, édifié par l’architecte tournaisien B. Renard, il comprend les ateliers et les bureaux du charbonnage, la cité ouvrière et la résidence des administrateurs. Durant deux jours, le CID, qui occupe aujourd’hui les lieux, a le plaisir de dévoiler en exclusivité ses dernières découvertes. Profitez d’un site historique majeur, reconnu au patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO, par la biais d’une visite guidée ou de diverses activités, et plongez dans l’ombre de son passé pour ressurgir à la lumière qu’il dégage aujourd’hui. Dans le cadre des Journées du Patrimoine qui se déroulent ces 7 et 8 septembre, de 10h à 18h, le Centre de documentation du Grand-Hornu a le plaisir de vous proposer une exposition intitulée « De l’ombre à la lumière », une sélection de documents dont la majorité sont issus du Fonds Plaetens et ayant pour thème le Puits numéro 9 Sainte-Désirée et l’Atelier de Construction de Machines. Depuis deux ans, Roland Holbrechts et Jacques Vandormeal, deux passionnés du Grand-Hornu, encadrés par Céline Ganty, responsable du Centre de documentation, ont archivé de nombreux documents relatifs au site hornutois. Ces documents ont été collectés par Léon Plaetens à la fin des années soixante.

    12/09/2019 > 09/10/2019 - Exhibition - Red in Italy
    The Italian Cultura Institute in Brussels, the Campari Group and Galleria Campari present the exhibition Red in Italy. All the Reds of Italian design. This project, which is already on view in the Galleria Campari, is a 360-degree exploration of everything to do with the colour red through a series of iconic Made in Italydesign objects. The exhibition wants to stimulate a cultural exchange. Colours are part of a nation’s culture: they influence our customs and way of life, they affect the way people behave and are reflected in our surroundings, language and collective imagination. The iconic red Campari provides the starting point for a reflection on all those different ‘reds’ that have characterised the civilisations of the world. The rich, surprising history of this colour reveals to us, by mixing art, design, culture and sociology, how our mentality has changed over the years. The exhibition project is structured around five thematic sections, providing the visitor with a way of interpreting the exhibition that involves all the senses. This exhibition confirms the important role of the Campari Group and Italian companies in the world of design by placing the accent on the characteristic elements of Made in Italy products, such as their strong ties with tradition, their cultural heritage and their highly practical nature.

    Ce 14 septembre, le Musée Royal de Mariemont organise une journée de conférences-rencontres autour du Japon. « Escale au Japon ». Les journées « Escale au Japon » rencontrent chaque année un grand succès, mais cette année, l’Escale aura un caractère exceptionnel car le musée accueille pour la première fois en Belgique le maître et professeur japonais de kintsugi : Showzi Tsukamoto. Le kintsugi est une technique japonaise qui date du 15e siècle environ, développée par les artisans japonais. Esthétique très appréciée des Chajin japonais (les pratiquants de l’art du thé), l’art du Kintsugi a permis le développement d’une esthétique nouvelle des pièces, en créant l’idée de réincarnation, donnant ainsi une nouvelle dimension et une renaissance à la pièce originelle. Pour les amateurs du genre, académies, artistes, artisans, fan de culture japonaise, restaurateurs, amateurs de bijoux et d’or, c’est un très grand nom. L’organisation de cette rencontre exceptionnelle intitulée 'Escale au Japon : Du « dô» et de la cicatrice dorée' se fait notamment en partenariat avec l’asbl L’arbre à Plume.

    The story between Design September and Xavier Lust has been multiple for many years. The success of the Design Stories exhibition at Botanique in 2015 or our collaboration for the exhibition Between Art & Design at Kanal - Center Pompidou the past edition shows it. Of course, Design September turned to Xavier Lust to sign this first production of a series of limited edition pieces. For this production, we wanted to present something new, and to embark on new grounds, working on a material that Xavier Lust has not yet experienced in his very broad work: porcelain. A material where the shape, the deformation of the material will be confronted to the claw of the designer.

    Christine Vanoppen’s artistic works span a diversity of applications, permanently displacing the limits of the possible. She experiments with various techniques and materials, drawing inspiration from both architecture and natural structures. Wouter Bolangier started working with glass at sixteen years of age. Today, he works primarily in glass, stainless steel and rubber. His work takes us into a world of suspended animation, where objects come back to life in new and magical ways full of unending sparkles, reflections and hues. At the same time, you are very aware of their fragility, with every seemingly stable instance being an illusion.

    28/09/2019 > 29/09/2019 - BRUSSELS DESIGN MARKET - Jules Wabbes, 100th anniversary exhibition
    Ever since its creation in 2002, the Brussels Design Market has evolved into the « the largest design market in Europe ». This event, that takes place twice a year (March and September), has become one of the main events in the international vintage design calendar. Maintaining its particular atmosphere that charac- terizes flea markets, the Brussels Design Market has continued to increase qualitatively and attracting more and more visitors every years. Dealers, collectors, professionals and amateurs from all over Europe, come together in Brussels to search for fabulous vintage items, designed in the last century. Visitors can discover original and iconic pieces from Ita- lian, French, American, and Scandinavian designers. These are created by the biggest names in the history of design, such as Sottsass, Le Corbusier, Eames, or Jacobsen and Panton. Between the purchase of well know designers and anonymous ones, visitors can enjoy a coffee break or a lunch break with the original food trucks in place. To finish off, this event takes place in the historical frame of Tour & Taxis’ halls, the industrial building that welco- mes the biggest cultural events of Brussels. Brussels Design Market is happy to announce that the thematic exhibition of this edition will will be dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Jules Wabbes. This is unquestionably the emblematic figure of Belgian design from the 50s to the 70s. Jules Wabbes is mainly known for his office furniture design, which has equipped the premises of the famous public and private institutions of his time: the headquarters of the Glaverbel, the Générale de Banque (now BNP Parisbas Fortis), or the Foncolin. Little-known to the general public, his work was nevertheless acclaimed by international critics. In 1960, his ingenuity and his love for the beauty of materials and pure lines were rewarded with a gold medal at the famous Triennale of Milan. This exhibition will unveil rare pieces of his production, thanks to the valuable collaboration of Marie Ferran-Wabbes.

  • CID - centre d'innovation et de design au Grand-Hornu - http://www.cid-grand-hornu.be
    24/11/2019 > 07/03/2020 - Exhibition - Nature morte / Nature vivante
    Since the late 17th century, the French expression nature morte (literally ‘dead nature’) has been used to refer to still life, the field of painting that approaches nature from a sensual per-spective and explicitly alludes to its fragility and ephemerality, and indirectly also to the vanity of human intervention on its composite elements. Over time, the term has extended to include any arrangement of inanimate objects organised in a certain fashion with a symbolic intention, which is meant to induce a poetic emotion. In our so-called “anthropocene” age, man’s unwarranted action is contributing to the impermanence of nature, or even its annihilation. With this sombre outlook, the term nature morte ta-kes on even greater relevance. Yet nature has a formidable capacity for regeneration. Works by numerous creative minds ques-tion, provoke or encourage mechanisms that nature uses to underpin its intensity, reproduction and durability. In reality, each state of matter is a snapshot in a long, slow, evolutionary process of transformation, aggregation, assimilation and decomposition... Nature is very much alive! In this exhibition organised at the CID (centre for innovation and design), designers, architects and artists present intensive, practical or experimental research that questions the relationship between man and nature, calling in equal measure on ecology, science, our moral conscience and artistic creation. Nature morte/Nature vivante reveals how much man’s ambiguous relationship with nature can be both perverse and inspiring.

  • TRINK HALL Museum -
    01/03/2020 > Opening of Trink Hall Museum (Liege)
    The architectural renovation and the reopening of the iconic « Trink-Hall », previously Madmusée and Madcafé, takes shape in the Parc d’Avroy in Liège and will be inaugurated in March 2020. In March 2020, the cultural offer of the city of Liège will have a new museum. The renovation of this building (and its iconic café) in the heart of the Parc d’Avroy, in the centre of Liège, is supported by the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, the city of Liège and the asbl Créahm, Walloon region. Almost 3000 works of art that have been realised by mentally handicapped people during workshops are conserved and presented to the public. The exhibition spaces that are dedicated to the collection cover 400 m2 at the first floor of the museum, but there are also venues for temporary exhibitions. The restoration of the building was entrusted to the Atelier d’Architecture Beguin-Massart. The renovation and extension of the building is translated towards a daring, transparent envelop that encapsulates the old building from the 1960 in its architectural structure. In the spring of 2020, the museum will reintegrate its building and change its name. This change of name comes from the affirmation of an identity and a new exhibition programme. The opening is the realisation and the result of a long process. But it is also the occasion to ask questions and to rethink the museum project.
