On Friday 1st December 2006 the Dutch artist Lars Eijssen (°1967) will give a one-off performance at the S.M.A.K. in Ghent.
On the occasion of the Finnish presidency of the European Union, which started this year, at the end of the year the S.M.A.K. is organising an exhibition of work by three Finnish artists.
The S.M.A.K. has invited the young Belgian artist Philippe Metten (b.1977) to install a site-specific presentation in the Kunst Nu room, the museum’s space for young artists.
The S.M.A.K. is for the first time showing the Universe-series by the Cuban artist Ricardo Brey, which consists of about 1000 drawings and assemblages.
The performance Vormsnoei (in collaboration with NTGent) is about the need for self-presentation and the inevitable mistakes everyone makes.
The controversial project EPIFANIE will now be followed by a fascinating exhibition, man, the Story of a Wound from 16 to 19 November 2006.
For the tenth successive year the Friends of SMAK will be organising the Coming People exhibition.
Bart Stolle (°1974, Eeklo) is an artist who makes animated cartoons. Rather abstract ones. Yet he still asked for a text about ‘How his art stands in the specific world/reality’.
Marcel Broodthaers is considered to be one of the most influential postwar Belgian artists. Although he started his career as a poet, he is also a sculptor, painter, curator and filmmaker.
