Sense of Place at BOZAR, Brussels
| Opening June 14 |
Sense of Place is the major exhibition of the new edition of the Summer of Photography. Landscape occupies a central position in the history of art in general and of photography in particular. How we see it today is affected by the ecological requirements of the post-industrial society. Concern for the future has led us to reconsider our individual relationships with the environment and to take a closer look at its place in our traditions and our history. Increasingly, we live less in the landscape than with it. Sense of Place looks at our relationship with the environment in the context of European photography.
Sol LeWitt. Colours at M-Museum, Leuven
| Opening June 21 |
The unique exhibition gathers twenty-four wall drawings in color by the American conceptual artist Sol LeWitt (1928-2007). LeWitt’s wall drawings marked, from the late 1960s on, a revolutionary development in the history of contemporary art. The monumental drawings are executed directly on the walls, according to the artist’s instructions and diagrams. Between 1968 and 2007, LeWitt created more than 1200 wall drawings.
Un-Scene II at WIELS, Brussels
| Opening June 22 |
Belgium, one might say, has no single art scene. Or it may be, perhaps, more accurate to say that Belgium, built as it is on divergent historic, linguistic, and cultural foundations and given its essentially irreverent attitude towards anything that would package it into a clear and tangible unity, has managed to resist having a "scene" at all. In this context, the exhibition Un-Scene II concentrates on what some might, in shorthand, call the emerging Belgian art scene.
