Piet Stockmans new art commission at Belfius Art Gallery, Magma Cloud Ashes, Apr 2018 – May 2019
Exhibition — May, 04 2018
This new art commission “Liquid Clay” by Belfius Art to Piet Stockmans has happened in line with the two recent exhibitions that Spazio Nobile organized with the Belgian world renown porcelain master and artist: “Blauw. Ceci n’est pas une couleur” (Sept 2017-Feb 2018) and “Into the Stockmans Blue” at Collect, Saatchi Gallery, London, 22-25 Feb 2018.
More than 50 artworks are exhibited in the Belfius gallery in the framework of the Magma Cloud Ashes‘ exhibition. Around that theme, Belfius Art Collection is exploring the impact and symbols of three colours considered to be fundamental and culturally close by historians: Red, White and Black. This show considers these three archetypal and contrasting tones through their material and immersive presence, as well as through the discovery of their interpretations across various cultures and periods. Among others : Piet Stockmans, René Magritte, Jan Brueghel (the Elder), Ann Veronica Janssens, Pierre Alechinsky, Luc Tuymans, Michaël Borremans, Jan Fabre, Léon Spilliiaert, James Ensor, Rik Wouters, Serge Vandercam, Antoine Mortier, Henri Michaux, Pierre Culot, Hans Op de Beeck and Leo Copers.
The exhibition is curated by Bénédicte Bouton and Carol Laurent.
Official openings will be held in June 2018. The exhibition will run until March 2019. We keep you posted!
