Showing: Jean Jullien – ‘Petrichor’ @Alice Gallery

Following hot on the heals of his recent exhibition in Tokyo, Jean Jullien is currently presenting a new body of work at Alice Gallery in Brussels. The show is entitled Petrichor which is the scent that is released by rain falling on parched soil and which is often linked in our unconsciousness to memory and recollections of the past.  At first sight, Jullien’s synthetist technique and littoral subject matter is reminiscent of the later work of Paul Gaugin. However, Jullien has consciously disengaged from the narrative of Western art history […]

Opening: Maya Hayuk – ‘Pareidolia Deep Destroyer’ @ ALICE Gallery

Continuing their long relationship together, Maya Hayuk opened her latest exhibition at ALICE Gallery in Brussels tonight. The new show, entitled Pareidolia Deep Destroyer, employs a broad range of painterly techniques to explore the consciously more organic branch of her practice.   The Brooklyn-based artist’s street work is created in response to the physical form of the host building; but this, in turn, alters how that structure is perceived and the two form a symbiotic relationship where the painting subtly changes the nature of the […]

Showing: Parra – “Salut” @ Alice Gallery

Alice Gallery in Brussels recently opened Salut, the first Belgium solo show by artist, designer, and illustrator, Parra. The show features a new body of work that includes drawings, paintings, and a large sculpture titled Give Up. With the fresh collection of works, Parra has gone back to mixing his signature lettering along with recognizable female figures. Curvaceous and naked, these blue ladies with beak faces are engaged in bizarre, often sexual activities. With lots of flat humor and double meanings, the Dutch artist’s imagery is both harmonious and […]

Previews: Parra – “Salut” @ Alice Gallery

Dutch artist, designer and illustrator, Parra, will be opening his first solo show in Belgium on the 28th of May at Alice gallery in Brussels. Salut will be his first show since the opening of his 10 year retrospective show at Kunsthal Rotterdam.

Established as an artist worldwide, his clear and stylish works found their ways […]

Showing: “Just Before Brazil” @ Alice Gallery

Alice Gallery in Brussels recently opened a big group show entitled Just Before Brazil. The idea was to showcase the artists they invited to the Asphalte festival in Charleroi and to share with the world their works before everyone’s attention gets focused on Brazil and football. But, after settling on the first lineup of artists, they’ve decided to add few more names and ended up with an impressive list of 52 artworks by 26 artists from various parts of the globe, various backgrounds, and various ways […]

Openings: Barry McGee @ Stuart Shave/Modern Art, London

AM has been keeping a watchful eye on Continental European shows featuring works by Barry McGee. Whenever the cashflow gods have been on our side, we’ve booked the necessary flights or trains to attend as well. This was the case with the 2010 joint show with Danish artist HuskMitNavn at A.L.I.C.E. Gallery in Brussels, and the 2009 three-man show (which also included Ed Templeton and Raymond Pettibon) curated by Aaron Rose at Berlin’s Circleculture Gallery. However, the last time McGee exhibited in the UK was […]
