The 4th edition of Brussels Art Days will take place during the weekend of 10-11 September 2011, throughout which galleries will be open from noon to 7 pm and shuttle service will make sure that your eagerness to absorb as much visual stimuli as possible isn’t diminished by any other physical or mental activity than the absolutely necessary one. If you still have any energy left at the end of the day – might be doubtful -, you can join the art crowd at The Egg for one hell of a party.
And what are the must-see shows?
You obviously should not miss any of the big names:
Almine Rech will present solo of Richard Prince’s, called The Fug;
Jan Mot will be showing new works by the Mexican born and LA-based artist Mario Garcia Torres;
and Charles Riva Collection will have on display selected works by Paul McCarthy.
Artists – photographers will fill many of the other renowned galleries:
Xavier Hufkens will present the London-born and NY-based photographer Adam Fuss,
Rodolphe Janssen the young LA-based rising star Walead Beshty;
Baronian Francey shows landscape photographer Florian Maier-Aichen;
and Barbara Gladstone presents solo of French artist Jean-Luc Mylayne.
Amongst the other very promising shows are certainly:
I’ve got you under my skin, Carlos Aires’ solo at Aeroplastics;
Kabul Time and Other Works by Jens Haaning (whose Turkish Mercedes is shown above) at D+T Project;
Little did they know by Antoine Bouillot at Alice;
Charlotte Beaudry at Aliceday,
Steven Baelen at Elaine Levy Project,
Michael Van den Abeele at Elisa Platteau & Cie,
Jonathan Callan at Hopstreet,
Gintaras Didziapetris at Tulips and Roses.
