Congo Art Works, Popular Painting
BRUSSELS  •  BOZAR  •  7 October 2016 - 22 January 2017
 
Just like music and dance, popular painting is inextricably linked to daily life; and this is also the case in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It gives us an impression of the collective memory and this is clear to see in this exhibition of paintings from 1968-2012. Portraits, landscapes and allegorical paintings alternate with urban scenes, historical figures and critical reflections on religion, politics and social problems. Humour is never far away. Historical objects, photos, drawings and archive footage provide a broader perspective and similarities to older art and other genres from Congo are clearly visible. The meaning behind popular paintings doesn’t seem to be fundamentally different from the role which older art forms played in Congolese society.

A Feverish Era in Japanese Art: Expressionism in the 1950’s and 1960’s
BRUSSELS  •  Palais des beaux-arts  •  14 October 2016 - 22 January 2017
 
 
In the turbulent years after the Second World War, Japan attracted a large number of influential artists. One of them was the French art critic Michel Tapié who introduced ‘Art Informel’ to Japan. Inspired by the bright colours and energetic brushstrokes, Japanese artists experimented with material, form, texture and movement, loosely rooted in the age-old artistic tradition. Conversely, the revolutionary works and performances by the Japanese had a major influence on the Western art scene of the ’60s and ’70s. BOZAR portrays a part of this intense exchange between East and West in A Feverish Era in Japanese Art. Expressionism in the 1950’s and 1960’s.
