ARTVIEW01 is presented in the context of Art Brussels. This is a first edition in the Atomium. ARTVIEW01 shows the collection of the collector Galila. Sculptures, photographs, paperworks, neon and videos are brought together, to explore the various art domains of the beginning of the 21st century.
On the one hand, contemporary art is sometimes subject to prejudice, on the other hand, contemporary art may delight, amaze, make nervous but rarely lets someone indifferent.
The original ambition of ARTVIEW is to look to both the contemporary art lovers as well as to the creators. ARTVIEW is not an exhibition in the strict sense of the word. It’s about the passion of collectors, what excites them, what drives them, what surprises them and what strikes them. Special attention is given to the creation. ARTVIEW is a lively dialogue between artists and collectors and especially between collectors and anyone interested in contemporary art.
To Galila, collecting means an ‘internal fight’ and with every extra piece of art her ‘family grows’. This display gives an intimate and subjective image on an art passion. We look through the eyes of Galila to the current plastic arts and the emotions she evokes. An intuitive, spontaneous and playful art selection.
