With The End Is Never Near, S.M.A.K. brings a first comprehensive retrospective of Belgian painter Jan Van Imschoot. Van Imschoot is internationally known for his intimate, enigmatic works from the early 1990s and his recent large-scale, historically inspired tableaux. The exhibition traces a rough chronological trajectory that spans more than 30 years along more than eighty of his canvases.

The research exhibition The Letters Project by Joseph Willaert is dedicated to the "letter paintings" the artist realised in the 1970s. Research shows that at least six of these letters are copies of the real letters. So, besides remarkable paintings, these are also unique art-historical sources.
