    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.

  • RECIPROCITY DESIGN LIEGE - www.reciprocityliege.be
    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?

    03/02/2019 > 19/05/2019 - Exhibition - Hors Pistes: Encounters in Groeland
    Through residencies, Hors Pistes initiates creative exchanges between artisans and designers from all over the world. During a month-long residency, they share skills, knowledge, and cultures. By breaking their work habits, they rethink their creation process and find new application to the traditional techniques. Together, artisans and designers experiment and get inspired from the identity of the territory. The results of the collaboration foster the transfer of artisanal know-how and question its heritage and future. By going “off-road”, Hors Pistes offers professionals the opportunity to be involved in a multidisciplinary laboratory and to reflect on conventional production models by encouraging innovative creation processes. Free-form explorations, alternative life stories. In 2014, the CID hosted the first Ouagadougou Off-piste experience. In 2019, it is the first museum to host the third edition of the project: Hors Pistes Nuuk. Nuuk is the capital of Groenland, an island with limited natural resources and a harsh climate. The local artisanal techniques take the surrounding geographical constraints into account and the Inuit culture is deeply connected to its land. The craftsmen find their inspiration in nature and work with materials such as stone, wood, soil, wool, skin, and bones of hunted animals. Altered during the last century by the various exchanges with the Western regions, Inuit traditions are being transformed with globalisation. If they were essential for survival, fishing and hunting practices are less and less used. This gradual disappearance endangers the related craft techniques, such as animal skin transformation or traditional kayak making. In the meantime, new techniques are being introduced and absorbed, such as embroidery, beadwork, or ceramic. The exhibition “Hors pistes Nuuk” aims to initiate encounters with Greenlandic culture, replace human exchanges at the heart of the creative processes. While the experimentations, prototypes and objects –all resulting from the researches conducted during the residency– embody the spirit of each encounter, the present exhibition also shares stories –narrated by an editorial team.

    17/02/2019 > 26/05/2019 - Exhibition - Glass-oriented design
    “Glass is, in general, the enemy of secrets.” ]This was how Walter Benjamin identified the ambivalent transparency of a material with which it seems very difficult to hide one’s intentions. The dialectics between apparent banality and potential for transgression in habit the process that has governed Cirva’s mission since its creation over thirty years ago in Marseille. Indeed, the laboratory’s vocation is to explore the relationships between art, design and glass through a wide range of the oretical and practical procedures, combined with the personal approaches of the artists and designers who are invited there for research and creation residencies. The Glass-Oriented Designe xhibition presents an eloquent series of experiments with glass conducted at Cirva by designers from very different horizons, but who are united by the opportunity to work and take part in an ongoing dialogue with the glassmaker. The first part of the show focuses on the object-constructions invented by Andrea Branzi at Cirva between 2001 and 2008, which question the relationships between domestic objects, nature and architecture. A more formal, technical approach to the material is highlighted through the research of Sylvain Willenz (Shift, Spot lights and Block containers collections, 2011/2012) and the lighting project developed by the Frenchduo Normal Studio (2013/2016), which explore the imprint left by the mould. The emphasis here is placed on the stages of work which make it possible to understand the experimental process. Through the poetic, narrative universe of David Dubois, the exhibition also considers questions of randomness and movement. Like a central theme, a series of unique works including suspension and wall lights (Globes, 2014) form a lighting landscape which in spatial terms is both graphic and diaphanous. Since 2011, Cirva and the Design Parade festival at the Villa Noailles in Hyères have chosen to work together through a one-year research residency grant for the winner of a competition. The young designer is given the brief to create one or a series of original vases. These creations are now being used to decorate the Villa Noailles with flowers, as during the time of the villa’s commissioners, Charles and Marie-Laure de Noailles, who were aesthetes and loved flowers. This precious testimony to modernist architecture, designed by the architect Robert Mallet-Stevens between 1923 and 1933, still remains contemporary and full of life. The exhibition scenography has been entrusted to Normal Studio. Drawing on their research experience at Cirva, they have designed a framework that enables the various worlds and functions to interconnect, there by codifying Cirva’s language of commitment to design and creation.

  • 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.

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.

    23/06/2019 > 13/10/2019 - Exhibition - Design on air
    Curator: Chris Meplon Invisible, intangible, immaterial.But also omnipresent and vital. No life on earth is possible without air. Air - for now - is free and belongs to everyone. But in the Anthropocene it becomes more and more threatened and requires protection. How do designers deal with air? How do they use it?What does air mean to them? This exhibition looks at the theme of air from different design perspectives. From air used for material objects, like inflatable objects and structures, to air in speculative design scenarios. Including technical and practical design solutions as well as alternative or futurist concepts, from air purification and ventilation to air travel. Because just like air, with its tendency to mix and diffuse, design is essentially mixed, plural, rather elusive and…vital.
