“Cast with flashback cast with flashback” showcases the most recent paintings of New York City-based artist Kadar Brock. The exhibited works stem from three different series, but nevertheless also relate to each other, especially when it comes to the use of material: the artist incorporates “waste” from previous paintings, such as dust or paint chips, into the works he creates after. Interesting!

Opening: Works on Paper at Valerie Bach

Thursday, 19 November, 17h00 Brussels

Valerie Bach gallery’s group exhibition opening this week evolves around paper in all its forms and variations. “Works on Paper” is much more than a drawing expo, showing the multitude of ways paper can be used in an artist’s practice, touching upon painting, sculpture, and installation art. Subjects covered range from reflections on space to an individual’s role in society. With works by Jeanne Susplugas, Agnès Thurnauer, Yves Zurstrassen., and many others.

Concert: Deerhunter at Botanique

Saturday, 21 November Brussels

American art rockers Deerhunter, hailing from Atlanta, have already been around for about a decade. Their music has lost nothing of its intensity though, which the band once again proves with “Fading Frontier”, its seventh studio album. Discover it live on stage this Saturday at Botanique!

Shopping: Vide Atelier at Niyona

From 20 to 22 November Brussels

Niyona, 100% Belgian, is one of the country’s coolest leather brands, skillfully uniting modern, clever designs with ancient craftsmanship. This weekend you can not only visit their Brussels store and get your hands on one of their lovely handbags, but also check out Niyona’s workshop, where everything must go, from exotic leather pieces to prototypes and buttons.
