Anti-Peinture

Callewaert Vanlangendonck Gallery – Antwerp
19.09.19 – 30.11.19

With the Anti-peinture exhibition, April 24 to May 30, 1962, the curtain falls on G58 Hessenhuis. It is not an iconoclastic event as the title suggests, but a broad international overview of kinetic art and neodadaistic reliefs. Many of the artists were already in 1961 in the “nove tendencije” exhibition in Zagreb that had launched the “new tendencies”. Callewaert Vanlangendonck Gallery tries to reconstruct this historic exhibition, by holding a group exhibition in which a number of protagonists are highlighted with their drawings, reliefs and anti-peinture art. Belgian artists such as Guy Vandenbranden, Paul Van Hoeydonck, Bram Bogart and Walter Leblanc are placed amongst international artists such as Lucio Fontana and Piero Manzoni.
