Brancusi: Sublimeren van vorm (Europalia)
Doïna Lemny, Dirk Vermaelen
Europalia & Snoeck, 2019
The flagship event of EUROPALIA ROMANIA is a prestigious exhibition devoted to Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957), one of the most influential sculptors of the 20th century.
This will be the first time a solo exhibition highlighting the work of this particularly versatile artist will take place in Brussels – the last retrospective was organised in Paris almost 25 years ago.
Brancusi is a key figure in the history of art; he is considered to be a pioneer of modernism.
The exhibition presents masterpieces by Brancusi from museums and private collections around the world, including ‘Sleeping Muse’ ‘The Kiss,’ and ‘Leda.’
Several pieces will be showcased for the first time alongside works by Rodin under whom Brancusi briefly studied.
