Muhka / The Gap

For its current exhibition, THE GAP – Abstract art from Belgium. A Selection, MUHKA requested Luc Tuymans to select fifteen artists whose work either articulates a relationship to abstraction or takes as its cue the definition of abstraction. These twentieth-century artists and their selected works reveal a clear and apparent relationship between a current and earlier interest in abstraction that has not lost its relevance over recent decades. The exhibition runs until 29th May 2016.
