    17/02/2018 > 14/08/2018 - Exhibition- Cirque Divers - Museum of Walloon Life
    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.

    06/06/2018 > 04/11/2018 - Exhibition - Design Generations, Intersections 5
    Design Generations is an exhibition presented in collaboration with Wallonie-Bruxelles Design-Mode (WBDM) within the framework of Intersections, the ADAM’s biennial contemporary design event. It invites visitors to take a fresh look at design by demonstrating the profound value of this profession, which has witnessed and often advocated changes in our society over the last century. Ten design companies based in Wallonia and Brussels explain their approach through a selection of products, some from the past (permanently held in the Museum), some from the present (taken from their current collections) and some from the future (imaginary objects). Through its multi-sensory approach, which reveals spatio-temporal links and intersections, the exhibition offers a true experience of the world of design, improving our understanding of the lives of the objects that surround us and of their intelligence, both retroactive and prospective. They are the interfaces of our everyday lives, custodians of the precious legacies of the past, agents of social and aesthetic experiences, models for sustainable production and development, and vehicles for innovative scenarios promising a better future.

    15/08/2018 > 28/11/2018 - Exhibition - Tim Burton
    Exhibition The World of Tim Burtontravels to C-mine, Genk in 2018 The international exhibition The World of Tim Burtonwill be displayed in the exhibition spaces of creative cultural heritage site C-mine (Genk – Belgium) from 15 August 2018 until 28 November 2018. After the international success of sculptural art piece Labyrint in 2015 and the design exhibition The World of Charles and Ray Eamesin 2017, C-mine attracts yet another major international project. The touring exhibition on the work of Tim Burton has travelled all around the world from New York to Paris, Tokyo, São Paulo and Prague. Tim Burton, filmmaker and versatile artist Tim Burton (American, b. 1958) is a filmmaker, illustrator, author, and artist—and the creative mind behind the films Pee-wee’s Big Adventure (1985), Beetlejuice (1988), Batman (1989), Edward Scissorhands (1990), Batman Returns (1992), Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), Ed Wood (1994), Mars Attacks! (1996),Sleepy Hollow (1999), Planet of the Apes (2001), Big Fish (2003),Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride (2005), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005),Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007), Alice in Wonderland (2010), Dark Shadows (2012), Frankenweenie (2012),Big Eyes (2014), and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (2016). While Burton had previously been recognized almost exclusively for his cinematic work, the international exhibitions of his drawings, paintings, photographs, puppets, and sculptural installations display the full range of his artistic production. The World of Tim Burton, a touring exhibition curated from the artist’s personal archive, is presented in thematic sections that examine his extensive career. 400 signature pieces organised by themes Organized by curatorJenny He The World of Tim Burton premiered in 2014 and focuses on the distinctive characters and worlds that could only come from Tim Burton’s singular imagination. The exhibition is presented in sections that organise the approximately 500 works. In Around the World works made on sketchbooks, hotel notepads and restaurant napkins demonstrate the spontaneity of Tim Burton’s creative process. In the section Film Charactersthe exhibition offers a deeper look into the film characters that fans of Burton’s movies are so well-acquainted with. And in the section Influencesthe influence of his predecessors on his creative development are demonstrated. The earliest works in the exhibition are found in this section. Together with 6 other themes the exhibition gives new audiences an opportunity to experience Burton’s art in person for the first time and treats familiar visitors to an in-depth look further into his sensibility. Made to measure for C-mine C-mine is a creative experience site in Genk, in the North-East of Belgium. Apart from the industrial heritage that is worth a visit on its own, C-mine has grown as a significant player in the field of art and design. To harmonize the large amount of exhibition pieces with the spaces of the old mining building of C-mine, a local scenographer will be attracted. The exhibition will be completed with a brought public program such as guided tours, films and lectures. The World of Tim Burtonwill without a doubt be one of the must see exhibitions of 2018 in the Benelux.

    06/09/2018 > 30/09/2018 - Brussels Design September - Between Art and Design The Belgian Scene : KANAL - Centre Pompidou
    On the occasion of the thirteenth edition of Brussels Design September, we are delighted to present the exhibition ‘Between Art and Design. The Belgian scene’. This subjective selection focuses on a specific niche in the design sector, that of ‘collectible design’ or ‘design art’. Limited series and unique pieces, sometimes hand-made, form the core of this exhibition, in which form takes precedence over function, which is relegated to the background. The selection includes objects in the grey zone between art and design, mainly pieces of furniture with a monumental allure. The various pieces exhibited testify to the eclecticism and influence of Belgian creativity. This exhibition highlights the importance of the questions that Belgian designers have around the choice of form and function in designs. The tension between these two fundamental aspects of design was a key element in the selection of the items for the show. Function often plays an invisible role so that our focus is drawn exclusively to the form of an object. This tension also comes up in the research into and experiments in the techniques and materials used. The result is always a very personal design language. Noble materials such as marble, natural stone, wood, bronze or copper, are fashioned with respect and they define the appearance of the object. The common demands of any piece of furniture (function, comfort and ergonomics) are not given priority here. The objects are no longer reduced to function alone, they are unconventional and anarchic; they invite interaction. Artists have, for a long time, inspired designers and the line between designer objects and works of art is becoming increasingly blurred. Salvador Dali designed his legendary Bocca sofa in the 1930s. In Belgium, we discover how Emile Veranneman and Pieter De Bruyne distanced themselves from stereotypical furniture in the 60s. We had to wait until the beginning of the 80s however to see any real impact of art on design when the Memphis movement shocked the public in Milan with expressive, multi-coloured and often kitsch furniture. From then on - also in Belgium - a younger generation of designers started creating a new design language. From an artistic point of view, the design movement peaked in the 90s but did not have the desired success with the general public despite the efforts made by a number of design boutiques and art galleries that were to play a pioneering role here. A further 20 years were needed before wider support was generated. Since then design has become an everyday feature of our lives and exclusive design objects today draw considerable interest. ‘Between Art & Design, The Belgian scene.' This exhibition provides an overview of iconic, unique and often playful pieces. It offers us an ensemble that reflects the wealth and particularly the diversity of contemporary Belgian design. In this selection, the most striking aspect is the great artistic diversity that is also a strong characteristic of the world of visual arts in Belgium. The designers adopt a very independent and individual presentation style. They experiment with various techniques and materials and are consequently involved in the production process. But diversity is not just the result of an unusual choice of materials, technique or design language. It is also about people’s perception of an object. It may surprise, disturb or even amuse. Belgian designers remain, with a few exceptions, discreet; their work is characterised by a feeling for aesthetics, volume and proportion.

    06/09/2018 > 30/09/2018 - Brussels Design September - Eco Design : a route on innovation in Brussels
    Environmental and ecological issues are enormously present in the current design. Getting out of the linear economy, designing products that can easily be reused, repaired, reinvented and recycled are the prerogatives of many Brussels designers. To highlight this trend, in collaboration with Mad Brussels and hub.brussels, Design September will put the theme of Eco Design forward for this 13th edition. Eco Design involves taking into account the respect of the principles of sustainable development from the very beginning of the process of designing an object, a building or a service. Its principles are to create in respect of the environment, to limit the ecological footprint, to use less and better the raw materials and to think about non-polluting modes of manufacture. The reflection is on the life cycle of the product and its components, its lifespan, its possibilities of reuse, recycling, revaluation, or composting until the end of its life. The goal of eco design is to produce without destroying, improving the quality of life and changing the habits of the consumer. The designer is looking for new solutions that are more respectful of the environment without losing the desire for aesthetics and functionality. Through projects, Belgian brands, prototypes, exhibitions this focus will prove that young and old Belgian designers are at the forefront of innovation for the development of products that respect the environment.

    Depuis ses débuts, la marque Vitra entretient une relation étroite avec ses auteurs et ses designers. Le résultat de la collaboration avec eux est toujours un original.Tout a débuté en 1953 : Willi Fehlbaum, le fondateur de la marque suisse Vitra, découvre les sièges conçus par Charles et Ray Eames lors d’un voyage aux États-Unis et décide de les fabriquer. Il fait la connaissance du couple et naît une amitié qui marque encore, à ce jour, l’entreprise. Ensemble, Vitra et les designers créent des meubles qui sont plus que de simples objets – ils sont le fruit de leur savoir-faire. L’objectif des designers est de créer un produit qui ne soit pas simplement beau à regarder, mais qui soit utile pour l’utilisateur. D’autres aspects entrent également en ligne de compte : l’écologie par exemple, ou la durabilité – le fait que les objets acquièrent une patine qui les ennoblit. Ainsi, ces objets ne vieillissent pas mais s’embellissent. Depuis son installation à l’Émulation, le Théâtre de Liège est entièrement meublé par Vitra. Que ce soit le mobilier Jean Prouvé dans le restaurant le Balcon de l’Émulation, dans le Café des Arts, dans les espaces d’accueil ou encore les aménagements des bureaux par Arik Levy, tout est signé Vitra ! Pour célébrer le 5e anniversaire du Théâtre de Liège dans le bâtiment rénové de l’Émulation et ce partenariat, l’exposition itinérante L’original est signé Vitra présente les produits les plus emblématiques de la rme et raconte leurs incroyables histoires.

    29/09/2018 > 30/09/2018 - 25th edition of Brussels Design Market
    Since its creation in 2002, the Brussels Design Market has evolved into the « largest European vintage design market » and has quickly become a must-see in the international vintage design calendar. Maintaining its unique atmosphere usually characterized by ea markets, the Brussels Design Market has continued to attract more and more visitors from year to year and has developed into a real meeting place. Over the years, the selection of merchandise exhi- bited has increased. Arriving from all over Europe, the dealers present an eclectic collection, bringing to- gether multiple styles and trends that have impacted the 20th century. Visitors discover original and iconic pieces from Italian, French, American, and Scandina- vian design created by the biggest names in the history of design, such as Sottsass, Le Corbusier, Eames, or Ja- cobsen and Panton. Alongside these icons, the Brussels Design Market also offers anonymous and exclusive design pieces at affordable prices. For the 25th edition of the Brussels Design Market and to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the artist, an exhibition will be dedicated to the creations of the ceramist Georges Pelletier. His luminaires, his totems, and his atypical mirrors are all easily recognisable thanks to the handmade details that come together to produce unique sculptural pieces. Before the Brussels Design Market, a rst glimpse of his artwork will be presented in an intimate exhibition in the heart of the Sablon. September 7-17th / Galerie Brittania - Petite rue des Minimes n°5, 1000 Brussels

  • BRUSSELS DESIGN SEPTEMBER - http://www.designseptember.be
    29/09/2018 > 30/09/2018 - 25th Edition Of Brussels Design Market
    Brussels Design Market was founded 15 years ago. Initially it was simply a flea market exclusively devoted to productions from the 50s to the early 80s. Today, Brussels Design Market is considered one of the best events in Europe dedicated to vintage design of the 20th century. Twice a year, in March and September, Brussels Design Market welcomes 100 exhibitors and over 7.000 visitors in an exceptional and very famous location: Sheds 3 and 4 of Tour & Taxis - home to the largest Belgian cultural events, shows and fairs. The Brussels Design Market was founded more than 15 years ago by three people who are fascinated by vintage design, including Thierry Belenger, who is still in charge of the organisation. Over the years, Brussels Design Market has evolved as the biggest vintage design market and quickly became one of the not to miss events in the calendar of international vintage design. For the 25th edition of Brussels Design Market and the 80th anniversary of the artist, an exhibition is dedicated to the creations of the ceramist Georges Pelletier. His luminaires, totems and atypical mirrors are easily recognisable thanks to their handcrafted details, resulting in a unique sculptural work. Recently his work has been rediscovered thanks to dealers and interior designers who bring a tribute to his work. Georges Pelletier continues making new sculptural pieces but also reproduces his successful pieces from the 60s. As an internationally renowned artist, he is represented by various galleries while many exhibitions are dedicated to his work.

    this conference will highlight the experience of designers as part of a collaborative project with artisans or companies. It will present, in particular, the results of a workshop organised at the Keramis-ceramics centre by Dialogue (Frederik Delbart and Quentin de Coster). In this case, nine belgian designers were invited to experiment with a material and technique for the first time, working alongside a ceramist.

    05/10/2018 > 25/11/2018 - Exhibition - Face A - Face B : Design Station
    A work of good design may seem so obvious that it gives the impression that it was easy to make. But to achieve a result of quality demands of designers creativity, research, technical knowledge, material know-how, a great sense of observation, and also the ability to overcome the constraints and challenges that arise. Fragility is one of these constraints, whether it be the materials used, the precariousness of the designer’s status, the complexity of relationships with clients and intermediaries, or the difficulty of having the value of one’s work recognised, among others. By reviewing different aspects of selected Liege designers’ work, the exhibition will address these and other themes, while showing how these fragilities lead designers to develop strengths. During the triennale, job’in Design will organise a moment of meeting/debate. the eight participating designers will talk about their personal experience of fragility as a creative tool.

    05/10/2018 > 25/11/2018 - Reciprocity Design Liege 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?

    05/10/2018 > 25/11/2018 - Exhibition - Fragilitas : Centre Wallon d'Art Contemporain - La Châtaigneraie
    THE GUESTS OF OUR GUEST ARE OUR GUESTS. The welcome implied in the title of this exhibition is also reflected in the process of its making : Laurence Dervaux, the invited artist, extends this invitation to young artists from different cultures, accompanying them in a collaboration around the theme of fragility. Expressed in the materials used and in the subjects treated, fragility here points to human physical and mental frailties, the passing of time, the disappearance of loved ones, displacement... A moment of multicultural exchange. This project was born from dervaux’s desire to actively respond to the themes of population movements and openness to others.

    05/10/2018 > 25/11/2018 - Exhibition - Welcome To Bavière : Quartier d'Outremeuse
    Since 2012, this strand has focused on the search for viable and sustainable solutions through the methodology and practice of co-design. Its discoveries aim to generate projects that lead to citizen awareness and participation, in an effort to improve the quality of life of a community. Imagining the future of a neighbourhood through a design process is now a practice adopted by numerous cities across europe and the rest of the world. in this sense, the designer transmits the ability to create, imagine, and modify the dynamics that discourage collective life and a sense of security. Tapping into creativity’s capacity to intervene in the social context, the designer’s role is that of a vector of possible changes. The third edition of this research/action will be concentrated in the neighbourhood around the future bavière cultural hub development, a key part of Liege’s urban and cultural revitalisation. Led by nik baerten and virginia tassinari, these social innovation design experts have accompanied Welcome to_ since its first outing. In order to guarantee the continuity of the work in the field, the project will be carried out in collaboration with the staff of the chiroux Provincial Library (management and other employees); officials of the Province’s culture department; Aux Livres, citoyens!; and teachers & students of ESA Saint-Luc Liège, social design Master, theory & Mediation and data visualisation and BA graphic techniques of the high school of the Province of Liege in Seraing. The research, developed over the academic year 2017-18, will result in a final project that echoes the active participation of the local inhabitants. it will not be the subject of a formal exhibition, but rather a site-specific presentation of the processes and objectives achieved, symbolised by a series of urban installations.

    05/10/2018 > 25/11/2018 - Exhibition - Fragilitas : Galerie Les Drapiers
    Fragilitas here implies the fragility of social bonds, wherein exceptional knowhow is lost, and social and cultural fragility is exposed. The non-profit Les drapiers seeks to promote textile know-how from the Middle east and other regions. By encouraging the exchange and the meeting between people, techniques and cultures, denise biernaux, owner of the gallery, coralie miessen, textile designer, the red cross centre of Ans (represented by Mc Piette) and banneux (represented by eurydiane bukuru), will work with asylum seekers, heirs of these techniques. The acknowledgement and transmission of these skills is the red thread of this project, in which workshops will be open to all.

    05/10/2018 > 25/11/2018 - Exhibition - Museum of La Boverie : Fragilitas & Paradigm
    For the rst time since its reopening, La boverie will host a chorus of re ections on international contemporary design that will occupy all the rooms of the museum. In the glazed wing, monumental installa- tions will enhance its scale and emphasise the link between the museum and the city, between a place of culture and the public space. In short, culture as a common good. An innovative creative force often comes from a moment of crisis; a turning point; a change; a con ict. It can be transforma- tive for both the individual and communities. Fragilitas one of the main thematic cores of this edition. Its raw materials are the crucial points of our existence, and the changing needs these provoke. by nature wide-ranging, this is a re ection on the way design can lead us towards a more equitable society. Here, the creati- vity of design translates challenges into opportunities. Whether it is issues faced by an ageing population, people experiencing all types of disabilities, or the fragile existenceof those forced to migrate because of con ict or natural disaster, Fragilitas explores both mundane and life-changing circumstances. the very fragility of the human condition is framed as a ‘positive’ theme, one to analyse and divest objects and services with improved meanings in new paradigms. Fragilitas is a three-part exhibition that focuses on design’s (products, prototypes, graphics and architecture) engagement with di erent aspects of human fragility. three insightful observers guide each segment, with a scenography that orchestrates a seamless journey and creates a dialogue between the exhi- bitions, involving visitors in an active reading of design and an educational narrative. Liege and belgium will host an exclusive major exhibition co-produced by recIProcItY and rst previewed at Milan design Week 2018. the guest of honour of this edition is Favrica, an international communication research centre based in treviso (It). The design department director and renowned designer sam baron, in collaboration with the prestigious French textile brand Pierre Frey, will present Paradigm, a multidimensional visual journey questioning the role of the image within the contemporary design process. The exhibition is based on the essential needs of the human being represented in a creative and dreamlike way, questioning through a set of tridimentional instal- lations the role of design and its omnipresent visual representation in today’s society. it will be a true visual experience, a unique process with an exquisite sense of narrative.

    05/10/2018 > 25/11/2018 - Exhibition - New educational objects : Museum Of La Vie Wallonne
    For the rst time, recIProcItY focuses on design education in european univer- sities and higher-education institutions. it aims to map recent academic directions and to create a real-time portrait of emer- ging european design. The cultural role of european schools in orientating the direction of design and its social and economic impact are crucial. Design education exceeds disciplinary boundaries, opening itself to multiple visions and a critical approach of the real world. As a result, it is assigned an active and unique pedagogical role. The creation of artefacts and prototypes generated and/or destined to be put into place, bestows the schools with the role of laboratories of the possible, experimenting and researching, inclusive and open. The object here becomes the expression of an educational journey shared between teacher and student, in a dialogue that is often in conflict between the norm and liberty. The object, the artefact, enables accessibility and understanding. It is an embodiment of a theoretical and experimental process, providing a connection between school and society, and a public conversation between the design and its users. Following a call for entries, an international jury will assess the submitted projects and make a selection that best represents current-future trends, methodologies and issues. The resulting exhibition is to be based on the thematic clusters that arise from the selection process. The selection committee will awardfour prizes, one in each of the following categories: international, euregio meuse- Rhine, Wallonia-brussels Federation, and Wallonia higher-education.the awards ceremony will take place in the exhibition venue on 4 october 2018 during the press preview.

    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.

  • EURANTICA FINE ART FAIR 2018 - www.eurantica.be
    21/03/2019 > 24/03/2019 - Eurantica Brussels Fine Art Fair
    This daring initiative is supported by Belgian and foreign gallerists, dealers and collectors. This enthusiasm illustrates the trust that the sector has in the fair as an important meeting place for classic and modern art. This position illustrates the rise of Brussels as Parisian anti-chambre in a context where London, capital of the European art market, takes distance from the continent. Paris reinforces her appeal and profiles itself in an active way as the most important place for the European art market. Eurantica follows this new position by choosing the theme “Paris-Brussels” for this edition. But that doesn’t mean that Eurantica forgets her roots. True to itself, Eurantica is elegant, eclectic and rich on discoveries. It embraces all domains and periods. It reinforces and keeps its strong anchorage in classic paintings of Old Masters, Belgian and European post-war painting, jewellery, old furniture, vintage furniture and collection objects. Eurantica responds to the expectations of the art market by presenting a fair that gives extra attention to the classic sector in a dynamic and contemporary environment with accessible prices. The antiquarians show quality pieces in beautiful presentations.
