Jan Van Imschoot Catalogue The End Is Never Near


From 7 October 2023, the retrospective exhibition of Belgian painter Jan Van Imschoot . The publication 'The End Is Never Near' brings a first comprehensive overview of his oeuvre.

His work is built around historical themes from literature and art history, bridging to predecessors such as Caravaggio, Tintoretto, Goya, Manet, and others. The artist engages in an ongoing dialogue with the past, often focusing, with a dose of cynicism, on phenomena or figures on the margins of contemporary society.

More than 200 works by Jan Van Imschoot are included in this monograph, which contains in-depth essays by Selen Ansen, Dieter Roelstraete, Alain Tapié and Philippe Van Cauteren, as well as an extensive conversation between the artist and Hendrik Folkerts.
