Spring 2013

ALBERTO MAGNELLI, Pioneer of abstraction
21.02.2013 > 26.05.2013

Antonio Magnelli exhibition 2013 (c) Museum of Ixelles

The exhibition ALBERTO MAGNELLI Pioneer of Abstraction, invites you to discover the prolific work of this remarkable artist from the 20th century. Finding artistic inspiration from the Italian Futurists and his contacts with the Parisian avant-garde, from 1911, Magnelli produces his seminal and original work. Associating with Guillaume Apollinaire, Pablo Picasso, Fernand Léger and Henri Matisse, Alberto Magnelli began to occupy a significant place in the cultural scene in Paris around the time of cubism and the rise of abstraction.

Between his new figurative and creative realism, Magnelli astonishes with a strength and freedom in his visual work, whilst remaining engaged with the aesthetics of his time.

VINCENT SOLHEID, Public confessions
Winner POP-UP 2012

Vincent Solheid exhibition 2013 (c) Museum of Ixelles

Invited by Jean-Luc Moerman at the exhibition POP-UP in 2012, Vincent Solheid won the audience award. Solheid Vincent is a contemporary artist; atypical, equivocal and versatile. His drawings, paintings, sculptures, plays and films reveal questions and are altogether breathtaking, evasive, probing and farreaching. Discover the work of this ingenious young artist.

14.03 > 14.04.2013

This young artist tirelessly questions the relationship between form and surface in his work. Paper is gouged, scratched and bent, drawings are erased.
Fascinated by the academic drawing as well as by the tormented lines of Van Gogh, Vincent Chenut’s original work is both powerful and poetic. He won the ROUSSEAU PRIZE in 2012.

VICTOR VASARELY.Hommage autumn 2013

A key figure in kinetic art (or ‘Op Art’ as in optical art), Victor Vasarely attained distinction in twentieth century art history for his prolific abstract geometric pieces. A true master of composition, Vasarely combined, connected, swapped and assembled geometric elements with an accomplished vision, advocating formal minimalism and optical effects.
This hommage invites you to rediscover Vasarely’s rich and radically modern work.
