Damn, that model moved again! Elegant modern and contemporary art exhibition at BAM (Mons)
Thinking of going to Michel François (MAC’s) before it closes this weekend? Then make your trip more worthwhile by stopping over at BAM (Mons) on the way for Le modèle a bougé (‘the model moved again’; through February 5), a small exhibition comprising works of Marcel Duchamp (La Boîte), Gerhard Richter (Pyramide), Roni Horn (Clownmirror), Gillian Wearing (Dancing in Peckham), Constantin Brancusi, and Belgian artists such as Lili Dujourie, Chantal Maes, Gert Robijns and Leon Vranken. Inspired by a quote from Edgar Degas it focuses on the dynamic relationship between artist and model, combining works from both modern and contemporary artists. There are innumerable other ways one could compose an exhibition around this central and rather vague theme, and of course this modest museum was limited in its choice of the works it could present, but nevertheless: elegant exhibition.
