Showing: Tauba Auerbach – “Tetrachromat” @ WIELS

Last month, Tauba Auerbach’s traveling exhibition Tetrachromat reached its stop in Belgium at Wiels Contemporary Art Center. Fans of the New York-based artist’s exquisite work in other parts of Europe like Bergern Kunsthall in Norway in 2011 (covered) and to Malmö Konsthall in Sweden in 2012 already had their chance to witness it in person – now it’s Brussels’ chance. Included in the show were of course her popular fold paintings, weave works, as well as her sculptural book pieces. Take a look are more photo below… Photo credit: The Future Tense. Discuss […]

Openings: ROA – “Stop Over” @ Bodson-Emelinckx

After sharing some shots of ROA hard at work setting up his show in Brussels, it’s now time to check out the fruits of his labor. Stop Over at Bodson-Emelinckx Gallery opened to a packed house as the Belgium-based artist’s home country’s fans came out in force to support the street muralist. The showing featured multiple installations imitating a laboratory that are similar to what ROA has done in the past, but this latest iteration looked very refined and finished. Paintings on found objects were nestled […]

Streets: Invader (Belgium)

We haven’t heard much from Monsieur Invader since he served up space waffles at a showing in London (covered) back in December. It seem though that the street tile specialist has been busy putting in work in Brussels recently plastering the walls with his pieces. As usual, he put a little local flavor into this invasion with references to the famous peeing statue that is a symbol for the city as well as some use of the Belgium colors. More looks after the jump…

Openings: Boris Tellegen (DELTA) – “ABUNDANCE” @ Alice Gallery

Just the other night, the Alice Gallery in Brussels played host to a new body of work from Boris Tellegen aka Delta.

This time around, Delta brought a wide variety of works collectively entitled Abundance to the table including paintings, collages, installations, projection […]
