'Conceptual, Surrealist, Pictorial' - 24/11 - M HKA, Antwerpen
donderdag, 24 november, 2016
'Conceptual, Surrealist, Pictorial' is the first in-depth study of the use of photography by Belgian artists from the 1960s until the early 1990s. During these three decades, photography generally underwent a major evolution with regard to its status as a gallery-focused fine art practice. Liesbeth Decan explores the pioneering use of photography within Conceptual art (represented by Marcel Broodthaers, Jacques Charlier, and Jef Geys), the heyday of Photoconceptualism in Belgium (represented by Jacques Lennep, Jacques Lizène, Philippe Van Snick, and Danny Matthys), and the transition from a conceptual use of photography towards a more pictorial, tableau-like approach of the medium (represented by Jan Vercruysse, Ria Pacquée, and Dirk Braeckman).
Op donderdag 24 november stelt Liesbeth Decan haar boek voor in het M HKA te Antwerpen, ingeleid door Bart De Baere (directeur M HKA) en Hilde Van Gelder (editor Lieven Gevaert Series).
