Les Journées de la culture 2011
Curator John Zeppetelli will lead a tour of the John Currin and Berlinde De Bruyckere exhibitions providing added insight into the works while shedding light on the concepts, themes and issues they propose.
Friday, September 30
An English tour is offered at 4 PM.
A French tour is offered at 2 PM.
October 1 and 2 – 1 PM to 4 PM
TWO is a public project conceived to deepen the experience of the solo exhibitions by John Currin and Berlinde De Bruyckere. We invite the public to share their interpretation of the duality of ugliness and beauty in an artistic context.
Is beauty synonymous with proportion and harmony? Does ugliness rhyme with monstrosity? What charm can we find in depravity?
Use your creativity to explore the themes of the exhibition in a personal way and take part in the creation of a collective, participatory artwork.
Create your work by drawing, writing or making a paper sculpture that responds to the statements “Beauty is….” and “Ugliness is…”.
