Our selection of cultural things to do in Belgium this week. See you there!
Exhibition: Oriol Vilanova at BEIGE
Runs until 29 October Brussels
The exhibition “The End of the Ancient World” by Spanish, Brussels-based artist Oriol Vilanova revolves around the performative bargaining act we all know from the flea market, something he describes as an “economic poem”. The show at BEIGE touches upon themes such as the economic recession and the dominance of numbers in our lives in a witty way.
Exhibition: Joan Miró at BAM
Runs until 8 January Mons
Bringing together paintings, gouaches, drawings, ceramics, and sculptures from the Miró foundations in Mallorca and Barcelona as well as loans from collections around the world, “The Essence of Past and Present Things” at BAM in Mons lets you discover all stages of the celebrated artist’s career. Continuously experimenting, Miró was an important figure in the early 20th century avant-garde and has been associated with Surrealism, Fauvism, and automatism.
