Workshop: Spreken, kijken, kiezen?

Book release: Charline Tyberghein

Opening on May 23: SEEN

May 22, 2019

As the assistant of Joanna De Vos - art historian and curator, I am happy to announce the opening of her new project space SEEN. 

SEEN opens on 23 May 2019 and is a new project space curated by Joanna De Vos in the vibrant Zuid neighbourhood of Antwerp. The concept is simple: one room, one previously unseen artwork, one artist. Each presentation will be accompanied by a statement or specially selected text. SEEN will exhibit works by a wide range of national and international artists, some of whom will be selected by guest curators. Each piece will be on view for a period of two months. 

 

Why this new space? Joanna De Vos is a ‘curious and keen’ curator and is constantly on the lookout for new discoveries. She lives and breathes art and SEEN is a way of sharing this passion.

Why ‘SEEN’? The past participle of the verb ‘to see’ is an ideal name for this new space, and for several reasons. SEEN is not a gallery and does not have a commercial purpose. It is a space for reflection and contemplation, one that is born of a profound belief in the power of beauty, art and the artist. It is intended to be a supportive platform that enables artists to be ‘seen’ and heard. Moreover, SEEN aspires to create a ‘scene’: a space in which curators, artists and audiences can meet, where things can happen and connections are forged; an unassuming nexus in the middle of Antwerp’s thriving international cultural quarter.

Lecture on meeting points between Belgian contemporary art and music

Lecture for PEDIC (Pedagogisch Didactisch Centrum) Gent, about remarkable meeting points between Belgian contemporary art and music (in Dutch). 

Werkwinkel 2: Opmerkelijke ontmoeting tussen Belgische beeldende kunst en muziek

 

Vanuit haar ervaring als beheerder van collecties, onderzoeker en schrijver schetst Tamara Beheydt je aan de hand van een aantal goed gekozen voorbeelden een beeld van de vele mogelijke ontmoetingen tussen Belgische beeldende kunst en muziek. 

 

Eén belangrijke focus binnen de lezing zal liggen bij kunstenaar Dennis Tyfus (°1979). Hij kan getypeerd worden als een allround kunstenaar, die op verschillende manieren en niveaus muziek in zijn praktijk verwerkt. Met haar suggesties wil Tamara je vooral aantonen wat er vlakbij te ontdekken valt, maar je ook uitdagen om voorbij de meest conventionele definities van zowel "kunst" als "muziek" te kijken.
