Selfie heaven for art lovers: ‘Man In The Mirror’ at Vanhaerents Art Collection (Brussels)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It could be selfie heaven for art lovers, with all the mirrors. But alas, it is strictly forbidden to take pictures. Man In The Mirror (the reference to Michael Jackson is intended) is the title of the great new exhibition at the Vanhaerents Art Collection, that remarkable exhibition space in the centre of Brussels, devoted to the collection of Belgian private collector Walter Vanhaerents. The new show (co-curated by former Tate curator Emma Dexter) comprises work by some 40 international artists, such as Sterling Ruby, Bill Viola, David Altmejd and Elmgreen & Dragset. Once again, it’s proof of how Vanhaerents is used to seeing things on a bigger scale: there is not a single smaller work to be found in the show. Man In The Mirror will run through October 2017. As well on view (through January 30, 2016) is Philippe Parreno‘s large scale video installation Marilyn (2012). Individual visits: every first Saturday of the month, after inscription. Guided group visits: every first & third Saturday of the month. Info here.
