7th Antwerp Academy Art Book Fair
16/10/2021
Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten

This art book fair has become the largest of its kind in the Benelux. More than 120 exhibitors from home and abroad present the best in the field of art books and artists’ publications from the 20th and 21st century. They do this in the atmospheric galleries and corridors of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. This unique book fair will be divided in three sections: PAST (with modern antiquarian material), PRESENT (with contemporary publishers) and FUTURE. This last section provides a platform for the printed output of Belgian higher art education, with a focus on research publications. Together, the three sections offer a unique insight into the rich tradition and bright future of avant-garde and artistic print. In short, there will be more than enough to experience and explore to spend a day at this unique art book fair.

Artists Print
23 & 24/10/2021
Brass

La foire indépendante du livre d’artiste et du multiple « Artists Print » est devenue une référence incontournable pour découvrir la scène de la micro-édition, du livre d’artiste et du multiple à Bruxelles. La sélection opérée par JAP vous permettra de rencontrer une trentaine d’éditeurs belges, français ou européens qui présenteront leur réalisations, aux côtés d’artistes, de diffuseurs ou d’institutions publiques. Les exposants sélectionnés pour leur pertinence bénéficient pour la plupart de la reconnaissance ou au moins de la curiosité d’institutions publiques et muséales, mais ils jouissent rarement de l’opportunité de pouvoir toucher un vaste public en quête de découvertes artistiques.

Bernard Villers, hand werpen, re-enactment ICC performances 1979 & 1980 (with Monolithe Noir)

Contemporary artists often have a close relationship with music: they listen to music, are fans, deal with it as part of popular culture. They make music themselves, incorporate music and sound in individual or collective installations and performances. This presentation is part of a series examining the programming and legacy of the ICC. In this part we look back at some artists that pioneered a discipline in which many media meet, and in which sound is closer to visual art than to music.

As part of an ongoing reflection on the origins and identity of the Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp (M HKA), a series of exhibitions brings to light different aspects of its history, particularly around its predecessor institution, the International Cultural Centre (ICC). The ICC, founded in 1969 and closed in 1998, was the first institution for contemporary art in Flanders, housed in the imposing Royal Palace in the center of Antwerp. At a time when traditional museums did not meet the needs of contemporary art in the 1970s and 1980s, the ICC offered a platform for the production and presentation of various disciplines and crossovers between different art forms. The program focused on local and international contemporary artists, and many conceptual artists and their installations were exhibited there.

The second part of this program is devoted to sound art. In performances and concerts at ICC, artists have explored the possibilities of sound as a complement to their visual practices. Here, these experiments are presented in an installation that includes musical instruments, sound recordings, video recordings, and documentation by artists such as Vito Acconci, Laurie Anderson, Connie Beckley, Jacques Charlier, Maurizio Nannucci, Charlemagne Palestine, George Smits, Ben Vautier, and Bernard Villers.

“Artiste peintre et éditeur belge né en 1939, Bernard De Villers, dit Bernard Villers, vit et travaille à Bruxelles. Il se revendique peintre, mais une bonne part de sa pratique, y compris picturale, se développe sous diverses formes éditoriales : plus de cent cinquante livres, brochures, dépliants ou revues. Son œuvre avance notamment sous les enseignes de plusieurs « maisons » d’édition successives, Le petit remorqueur, Les éditions du Remorqueur (1976/2003), Le Nouveau Remorqueur (2003-2015) et le Dernier Remorqueur depuis 2016. D’apparence minimaliste (idées simples, formes élémentaires, réalisations modestes, allures sobres, etc.), l’œuvre de Bernard Villers est d’une grande complexité, cultivée et sensible. Cultivée, car travaillée de manière plus ou moins invisible par un dialogue avec le langage, la littérature, la philosophie… ; sensible, car cherchant ses inspirations dans divers aspects banals, marginaux ou imperceptibles des expériences quotidiennes.” Aurélie Noury, Bernard Villers, Les Éditions du Nouveau Remorqueur – Catalogue raisonné, Incertain Sens, Rennes 2016
