We live in an era of edges. Between animal and human, tree and river, feather and skin, concrete and green, how can we find our way through? How will we confront the future, when fragile environments are collapsing? With patient actions, wild stories, surprising shares? Find the answers with the artists of the Art et marges museum, who will spread out the collection of their works on occasion of a picnic in the summer clearing.
The “picnic of works” is organised by Caroline Lamarche, author, (“Nous sommes à la lisière”, Gallimard, Goncourt's prize for short story 2019), curator on this occasion.
Women in Art Brut ?
Big names in Outsider Art as well as more confidential works are a matter of an eye – the eye of a woman, the Viennese collector Hannah Rieger, who invites us to experience “Outsider Art” her way.
Works by and portraits of women alternate in this exhibition that features 105 works by Austrian and International artists.
Supported by the Austrian Cultural Forum Brussels and the Austrian Federal Chancellery in the framework of the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
"Everything is fine except everything that's going wrong"
...was the motto of Jean-Pierre Rostenne, atypical artist, poetic thinker and an essential character in a Brussels neighbourhood true to his image, the Marolles. The Art et Marges museum plays hommage to him in a room that showcases his totem canes, assemblages, photographs and reworked objects. To complete the portrait, his friends, who have lent works for the show, talk about him in sound recordings that can be listened to at the exhibition.
