Belgium-Argentina: Transatlantic Modernisms
Feb 12 – Jun 12, 2022
Mu.ZEE
OSTEND, BELGIUM

The exhibition Belgium-Argentina: Transatlantic Modernisms, 1910–1958, focusses on the artistic connections between Belgium and Argentina in the first half of the 20th century when numerous exchanges took place, driven by migration and travel. The exhibition zooms in on four figures who, each in their own way, connected the art scenes and whose lives and works intersected: Belgian artist Victor Delhez (1902–1985), Argentine art critic and art historian Julio Payró (1899–1971), Argentine collector Ignacio Pirovano (1909–1980) and the Belgian artist Georges Vantongerloo (1886–1965).

The artistic relationship between the two countries places modern art history in a new light. It shifts the attention from dominant centres such as Paris to a less studied cultural geography and displays international networks that bring together the work by artists such as Emilio Pettoruti, Pablo Curatella Manes, Xul Solar, Marthe Donas, Victor Magariños D., Tomás Maldonado, Lidy Prati, Eduardo McEntyre, Miguel Ángel Vidal, Raúl Lozza, Juan del Prete, Yente (Eugenia Crenovich), Max Bill, Joaquín Torres-García, Michel Seuphor, Huib Hoste, Paul Delvaux, Jo Delahaut, Pool Joostens, Oscar, Jespers, Enio Iommi, Raquel Forner, Alfredo Bigatti, Masereel, Víctor Rebuffo, Adolfo Bellocq, Norah Borges.

Curators: Adriaan Gonnissen, Laurens Dhaenens, Emma Driesprong and Juan Cruz Andrada.

  • ICON – O – STASYS
    May 31 – Nov 3, 2024
    Stasys Museum
    Panevėžys, Lithuania

    On this day… Stasys arrives back at his home village, Lepšiai… It all happens in May 2024… That’s when the Stasys Museum opens up to the public, a museum titled after him. This was never predicted – the future from there, a little village, in the house within a disorderly wooden structure, run down with dripping roofs, filled with bellowing, roaring farm animals… No fairy tales could be heard there… But just one hour’s walk away from Lepšiai, the white rectangular building stands proudly in the city centre (more…)

  • Emily Ferguson: It Girl.
    Jun 1 – Jul 13, 2024
    Nicodim Gallery
    Los Angeles, USA

    What’s an It Girl? An image of an seraphic figure, glowing almost too bright to be looked at until the flashbulbs recharge and the cameras become visible. Glamoured, the viewer is still seeing spots and rubbing their eyes as the figure stalks out of view, no-one quite sure if she’s real or not, an apparition disappeared. An apparition, by its very nature is uncertain, the intention defined by the person who sees it – The angel becomes a monster if enough people describe it so. (more…)

  • Mani Mazinani and Sanaz Mazinani: Dastgāh
    Jun 4 – Oct 31, 2024
    Evergreen Brick Works
    Toronto, Canada

    How do you listen? What do you hear? Nestled in the Don River ravines amidst urban trails and the Don Valley Parkway, Dastgāh is a sound sculpture that asks visitors to open their ears and listen differently. Created by the brother and sister duo Mani Mazinani and Sanaz Mazinani, the instrument takes its title from the Farsi term “dastgāh,” and can be literally translated as a “hand” (dast) and “gāh” (way) or “set of directions,” a modal system that serves as the foundation for composition and improvisation in Iranian music.

As our name and logo suggests, we want to be a prism that refracts all the possible outcomes of the painting process.
