Animals V2

Riva Project 

Rue de Tenbosch 124,1050, Brussels

From the private collection of Charles Riva, the second part of the exhibition ANIMALS continues to reflect upon the representation of the figure of the animal in contemporary art.

Bringing together works by Martin Creed, Jeff Koons, Claude Lalanne, François-Xavier Lalanne, Sherrie Levine, Paul McCarthy and David Zink Yi, this selection raises questions around sanctification, distortion and the specific attention given by the artists to the figure of the animal.


On view through July 7th.

Avenue Van Volxem 354, 1190 Forest

Saâdane Afif employs popular forms of culture, such as music, as a tool to bring people together in a moment of shared creativity. At the heart of this exhibition, a music studio is installed, complete with instruments. You are invited to come and play music, to take part in jam sessions under the guidance of a studio master. The only rule is that you must use the lyrics contained in Afif’s songbook Parolesas.

Free, but reservations obligatory. Email paroles@wiels.org to book.
