Openingsweekend: Eleni Kamma & Dieter Durinck

In a few weeks, we will open the doors of Kunsthal Gent for two new exhibitions. More than welcome during the opening weekend from Friday 17 February to Sunday 19 February.

ELENI KAMMA — 'CASTING CALL'

With Eleni Kamma's 'Casting Call' (2017 - ongoing), Kunsthal Gent is organising a temporary solo exhibition amid the Endless Exhibition for the first time. 'Casting Call' is an investigation into the concept of parrhesia: the courage to speak one's mind. The exhibition takes the form of an installation of characters (drawings, videos, costumes and props) that moves through the Endless Exhibition like a parade, inviting the visitor to participate in a sensory experience.

DIETER DURINCK: ‘BOOTLEG PAINTINGS’

Kunsthal Gent presents 'Bootleg Paintings', a retrospective by Ghent artist Dieter Durinck. With a series of more than 40 works, Durinck pays critical homage to different eras and movements within 20th-century painting. Works by famous and less famous masters were reinterpreted and overlaid with a green colour. At the same time, it is a personal etude into different possibilities within the act of painting.
