Greta Meert Gallery presents American artist Robert Barry through works curated by Franz-W. Kaiser. The opening of the exhibition Robert Barry – Works 1962 until Now coincides with Brussels Art Days on 11–13 September.

In the late 1960’s, Robert Barry abandoned painting and instead worked with invisible material such as electromagnetic energy, ultrasonic radiation and inert gases. From 1969, he showed a series of works composed of words drawn on sheets of paper, spoken on tape, projected as slides and imprinted directly on walls.

Words are essential elements in Barry’s work. They evoke a state of contemplation and personal experience in the viewer. Rather than analytical or critical language or part of a text, these words are used individually for their capability to suggest impressions a work of art can engender. They work through insinuation and address a multiplicity of senses that involve associations with the architectural or psychological context in which they are meant to evoke.

Brussels Art Days 11–13 September 2015. The exhibition at Greta Meert Gallery will run until 14 November 2015.
