Het Erf
Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens

'Het Erf' explores the collection of Irma and Jules Dhondt-Dhaenens, for which they had their own museum built in Deurle in 1967. Now, 56 years later, Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens is studying the origins of its own existence through a selection of historical artworks and never-before-shown archival material.

A selection of contemporary ceramics

With the group exhibition 'CRMCS#3', gallerist Elke Helbig and curator/artist Kris Campo pay tribute to the expressive power, sensuality, tactility, spectacle value and visual richness of the medium of clay. It's a surprising combination of work with different perspectives.

Enzo Mari

Dedicated to the work and ideas of the famous Italian designer, artist and theorist Enzo Mari (1932 - 2020), the retrospective 'Enzo Mari curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist with Francesca Giacomelli' brings never-before-seen projects, models, drawings, films and posters from the 'Enzo Mari Archive'.

The exhibition consists of a historical section, curated by Francesca Giacomelli featuring Mari's work between 1952 and 2012, with the reproposal of the last exhibition project curated by the artist himself in 2008-2009 for GAM in Turin. This historical section is complemented by a series of contributions from contemporary, international artists and designers who were invited by Hans Ulrich Obrist to pay tribute to Mari with new installations: Belgian OpenStructures, Adrian Paci, Barbara Stauffacher Solomon, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Tacita Dean, Nanda Vigo and Virgil Abloh.

Christophe Coppens

With 'Playdate', Christophe Coppens takes you to a former hideout, his old playroom. His childhood is a recurring theme for the artist, but never before has he focussed so radically on the days when he could still go and retreat carefree while the world outside rushed by.

Svelte Thys

Svelte Thys's works have painting itself as their subject. They are an investigation of the properties and limits of painting, an investigation of how painting itself can become an image. Wandering through matter and memories, this series of new works by Svelte Thys are a pleasant moment of linger, a request by the artist to the viewer and herself to return and take the time, to ponder.

An apple can't be tired
Pieter Jennes

In 'An apple can't be tired', Pieter Jennes his first institutional solo show, the artist shows a new series of paintings, drawings and unique textile sculptures. The works are loosely based on the 'Bulldozer exhibition', an exhibition that took place in a Moscow park in 1974, featuring work by non-conformist, underground artists. Because these artists were considered enemies of the system, the exhibition was ended by a large police force dressed as green workers, using bulldozers and water cannons.​​​​​​​​
