TL Mag is media partner of WIELS and is pleased to present Liquid Intelligence from 02.02.19 to 28.04.19.
Ellen Gallagher is one of the most remarkable artists working today. In her work she bridges the gap between organic iconographies based on microbiological forms from oceanography, and racialized icons and symbols. She reinterprets both everyday images and black idols from pop culture as she wrangles with American history and culture. With her poetic and playful vocabulary, she explores North American stories and tropes that are also highly topical in current European debates on decolonization, underpinning an ecological consciousness of human existence. Gallagher develops surrealistic iconographies that depict the mythical worlds of Afrofuturism with the legacy of the artist Sun Ra, of subsea life forms and of the ‘Black Atlantic’ and the Middle Passage, the slave route across the Atlantic Ocean.
The collaboration of Gallagher with Edgar Cleijne, Dutch photographer and film artist, connects them in a reflection on the transformation of landscapes and worlds. Together they created two film installations: Osedax,based on ‘whale fall’ – the scientific term for dead whales that have fallen to the ocean floor and are consumed by scavengers -, and the more recent Highway Gothic, a meditation on the ecological and cultural implications of the Interstate 10 highway that cuts through the Mississippi Delta and New Orleans. Both evoke hypnotic, enchanting worlds populated with micro-organisms and submarine life forms and the mythical stories of the African diaspora.
In addition to the installations, the exhibition presents paintings, drawings and collages that trace the development of Gallagher’s work over the last twenty years in series such as The Black Paintings, Negroes battling in a cave, Watery Ecstatic, Morphia, An Ecstatic Draught of Fishes, and DeLuxe.
TL Mag is media partner of WIELS and is pleased to present One Inch Off from 02.02.19 to 28.04.19.
This exhibition devoted to Benoît Platéus (b. 1972 in Liège; lives and works in Brussels) is the first to look back at the artist’s work from his earliest photographs to his most recent paintings. Taking a non-linear approach, it includes several previously unseen works and sheds light on the concerns that recur in the artist’s practice despite his use of highly diverse media and techniques.
A member of the generation that witnessed the digital revolution and the explosion of the image, Platéus fully embraces the creative possibilities of analogue and digital technologies in order to wrestle the question of the original, which he deforms, saturates, disfigures, dazzles, enlarges, erases or reverses. As a result, his images are always transitive. Reproduced endlessly but never identically, they highlight the poetic force of the accident, of the trace, of imperfection. This remarkable artistic practice, which relies as much on the heavy artillery of cinema as on simple automatic drawings, seems to probe a certain sense of the beyond. From the interstitial spaces of the city to the meanders of the psyche, Platéus sets out in search of new forms of representation that bear witness to another reality, still fragmented and always in a state of becoming.

Collectible is a pioneering fair exclusively dedicated to contemporary collectible design, gathering unique pieces and limited editions of 21st century. It will happen from 7-11 March 2018 in the former Vanderborght Building in Brussels. This extraordinary building was commissionned by the Vanderborght Brothers and built up in the 1930s. It opened in 1935 as a furniture department store. After several decades the building was acquired by Dexia to house its art collection. It has already hosted Independent Art Fair, the KunstenFestivaldesArts during Brussels European Capital of Culture in 2000 and has welcome several cultural events in the past few years. The City of Brussels owns the Vanderborght building since 2012.
COLLECTIBLE is a fair with global ambition which operates as a European convergence point bringing together the finest international galleries and design networks. A driven and highly skilled team, an internationally renowned selection committee and a well thought-out location guarantee a new approach, breaking the mould of traditional fair formats. The atmosphere and setup will be more similar to an exhibition than typical fairs. The architecture of the Vanderborght building is perfectly suited to hosting Collectible and allows the visitor to naturally navigate the pathway.
Collectible is an idea of Clélie Debehault and Liv Vaisberg, both active in the art and design sector for more than 10 years.
Clélie Debehault is an art and design consultant based both in Paris and in Brussels. Her experience includes working in the primary and the secondary art market as former director of Vedovi and associate director of Daniel Templon. She currently advises art and design companies – brands, online platforms, galleries, architects and designers – with the national and international development of their activities.
Liv Vaisberg is an international art director based in Antwerp. She is known for her strong art fair experience and her paradigm-shifting ideas which she brings to Collectible. She is the initiator of the critical Brussels based art fair Poppositions, the former co-director of the hip New York born fair Independent Brussels and founder of Complex, personalised art and design tours for Brussels.
Art Brussels, From Discovery to Rediscovery
ART BRUSSELS: CONTEMPORARY SINCE 1968
Retaining its youthful profile as a discovery fair, Art Brussels, one of Europe’s most original and most established fairs, celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2018. The fair can for the second year count on the main support of Belfius Wealth Management.
Since its inception, Art Brussels has evolved into one of the top European contemporary art fairs, and is a must-see in the international art calendar. Over 19 – 22 April 2018 (Preview 19 April 2018), the European capital becomes a focal point for collectors, gallerists and art lovers from all over the world. Art Brussels provides a unique opportunity to explore the artistic richness of the city, which is home today to an ever greater number of artists, galleries and curators thanks to the fair.
FROM DISCOVERY TO REDISCOVERY
As Belgium’s leading fair, Art Brussels continues to build on its profile and track record as one of “Europe’s foremost discovery fairs”, as stated in the New York Times. Art Brussels brings something different to the international art fair practices by privileging solid artistic content and profiling surprising artistic practices which one does not see at other art fairs. At the same time, the fair welcomes a large number of important international established galleries, many of which presenting outstanding booths in the PRIME section and some museum-quality presentations in the REDISCOVERY section. Together with the DISCOVERY section, this mix provides the necessary equilibrium a fair needs between the young and upcoming and the renowned and recognised.”
In this respect, 145 galleries are encouraged to play with the element of surprise by presenting either new work or undervalued historical work in the following sections:
- DISCOVERY, where the focus is on young, emerging and lesser-known artists showing recent works (2015-2018).
- PRIME, focusing on established artists from modern to contemporary.
- REDISCOVERY, dedicated to art from 1917 to 1987, presenting living or deceased artists who are under-recognised, underestimated or forgotten.
- Moreover, Art Brussels has always emphasized SOLO presentations thus offering the opportunity to get a more in-depth approach of the work of an artist.
On top of the gallery proposals, Art Brussels brings an exclusive artistic project, a discursive programme of debates, talks, etc. and pays attention to bringing the best of Belgian cuisine by JML, royal warrant holder of the Court of Belgium.
