    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.

    To mark its 60th anniversary, the Atomium will be launching various activities from March 2018 onwards. These will include exhibitions, events and products honouring this ever-iconic symbol of Brussels and Belgium. The activities planned for this year will begin on the 23, 24 and 25 March 2018, with a special festive weekend to mark the anniversary. On this occasion, the Atomium will present a hitherto unseen comic book entitled “Sourire 58” (“Smile 58”), created by Patrick Weber and Baudouin Deville, both fans of the fifties and of Expo 58. In addition to three exhibitions held at the Atomium and at the ADAM-Brussels Design Museum, collectively entitled Galaxy 58, the programme of activities will feature several events that will take place at intervals throughout the year, including a rock festival, summer firework displays and a large vintage bric-a brac fair. Limited edition items will also be created for the occasion, including a MeisterSinger watch and a batch of beer from the Flobecq brewery, Flo58. A splendid concert given by the Royal Chamber Orchestra of Wallonia will round off the programme in the autumn of 2018. The innovative visual world of Expo 58 captured people’s imaginations. For this occasion, the Brussels Design Museum re-focuses attention on its key elements such as forms, colours and textures, and on the importance of their influence in 1958, particularly regarding design.

    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.

  • C-MINE GENK - THE WORLD OF TIM BURTON - http://www.c-mine.be
    15/08/2018 > 28/11/2018 - Exhibition - Tim Burton
    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 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 Visionary director and producer Tim Burton (American, b. 1958) is internationally recognized for his acclaimed list of 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), Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (2016), and the upcoming Dumbo (2019). The World of Tim Burtondisplays the full range of his artistic production in a comprehensive exhibition of drawings, paintings, photographs, puppets, maquettes, moving-image works, and sculptural installations. Over 400 signature pieces organised by themes Organised by curator Jenny 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 more than 400 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 Influences, the influence of his predecessors on his creative development are demonstrated. The earliest works in the exhibition are found in this section. Together with other sections the exhibition at C-mine gives new audiences an opportunity to experience Burton’s art in person for the first time and treats visitors familiar with his previous exhibitions 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 thorough 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.

    21/09/2018 > ID#2018
    Playing with light and its colorful variations, geometric shapes and sound, ID#2018 engages the spectator in a unique sensitive and perceptive experience. In 2018, Visual System takes over the exhibitions sphere of the Atomium for a new immersive experience, fruit of their years of experience working with light and sound.

At the rhythm of unpredictable algorithms, the spectator is immersed in this abstract and poetic universe. He is touched by this subtle and inventive combination of light and music. The composition let you see the music and hear the lights.

    23/09/2018 > 17/10/2018 - L'original est signé Vitra
    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.

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

  • 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.
