BE BASIS is an initiative designed to bring the various Belgian language communities into contact with one another within the contemporary visual arts. BE BASIS selects new galleries and master graduates in fine art who are active in Liège, Ghent, Namur, Antwerp, Charleroi, Ostend, Hasselt and Brussels. With this exhibition platform BE BASIS has the ambition to foster encounters, mutual insights and friendships between students, master graduates, lecturers, gallery owners and collectors, across Belgium’s linguistic borders.

For this first edition BE BASIS selected two students from La Cambre, Brussels: Katia Vouilloz (CH) and Mikael Groc (FR), as well as the newly founded Antwerp gallery «Gallery 15/17» near the MAS. During the gallery discussion both artists will comment on their methods and collages of thought: both artists practice a contemporary form of research whereby they translate and distil images – sourced among the wealth of digitalized and/or digital images – into artisanal icons.

BE BASIS is an initiative of Boy & Erik Stappaerts.

Exhibition from Sunday 19/02/2017 until 26/03/2017
open Saturday & Sunday 14h-18h / by appointment
