These Strangers…Painting and People
Exhibition in the S.M.A.K. (Museum for contemporary art in Gent,BE).
The exhibition presents us with the human figure as shown in painting over the last forty years.
“The exhibition is not a survey, but explores the individual oeuvres of a number of painters who, on the basis of the portrait tradition, confront us with both the act of looking at the subject and the look we get back from the subject. Their paintings represent the (intimate) other against the background of their personal, social and cultural circumstances as both artists and humans.”
With work by: Nicole Eisenman, Victor Man, Alice Neel, Paulina Olowska, Nicolas Party, Elizabeth Peyton, Avery Singer, Henry Taylor and Katharina Wulff.
The exhibition is on display until 08-01-2017. For more info: S.M.A.K.
