Flavio-Shiró is a cult artist, a painter’s painter. His work defies categorization or association with any artistic group or movement. For more than six decades, his work has simply been modern.
Z33, House for Contemporary Art, Design and Architecture in Hasselt, Belgium, is a ground-breaking arts institution in Hasselt that works at the intersection of art, design and architecture. It is a safe haven on the periphery with a magnificent new building and a refreshingly diverse program. It is a rugged playground for artistic research, with its sights set on the world, its feet in the mud, and a heart that beats for talent development, (un)learning, the enjoyment of research and scintillating collaborations.
Z33 is a secret tip off the beaten arts track. A seismograph for whatever is moving and shaking in society. An open centre where you can take time off from the world that you know. A laboratory where explanation, imagination and modeling come together and shed new light on questions both great and small. Nothing is taken for granted. What seemed distant comes closer.
