Opening exhibitions: Ciprian Mureşan - Correspondances, Ronny Delrue | Friday 25 October 2019

Muresan drawing uitsnede

On Friday 25 October 2019, between 8 and 11 pm, you are warmly invited to attend the opening of two new exhibitions in S.M.A.K.

Discover the work of Romanian artist Ciprian Mureşan, which is exhibited as part of Europalia Romania. His work recontextualises historical anecdotes, iconic works of art, religious rituals and popular forms of culture and, in so doing, disrupts the well-defined (art) historical narratives. In this way, he reduces all the works in the S.M.A.K. collection to a post-figurative state, demonstrating the absurdity of also viewing this history as a linear story.


At the heart of the exhibition ‘Correspondances’ is the correspondence between Ronny Delrue with five artists from as many countries. Via drawings, extracts from letters and collages, this exhibition not only explores the encounter between artists from different geographical backgrounds and cultural attitudes, but also approaches Delrue’s own oeuvre from a fresh angle.

Practical information:

  • Opening exhibition on Friday 25 October at 8 pm.
  • The exhibition runs from 26 October 2019 until 19 January 2020.
