Established in 2012 by Belgian collector Hubert Bonnet, Fondation CAB in Brussels is a non- profit space dedicated to the promotion of Belgian and international minimalist and conceptual art through a dynamic programme of exhibitions and events. Housed in a striking 1930s Art Deco-style warehouse, built for the coal mining industry, Fondation CAB’s exhibition space offers visitors a unique environment to experience art.
The new exhibition Structures of Radical Will, held in the Fondation CAB and curated by Béatrice Gross, has two art historical starting points. The first is the Primary Structures exposition and second is the book Styles of Radical Will. The title Structures of Radical Will reflects this merge.
Figures on a Ground presents works by female pioneering Minimalist artists alongside contemporary practices that inscribe themselves in, or question the movement. Minimal art is thus approached through themes such as spatial perception, relationships, nature, the sacred, the body and spirituality.
Primary known for his monumental works, and his role as a prominent member of the New York avant-garde of the 1960s, Bernar Venet has long focused on painting, poetry, cinema and performance. Most notably, he developed a new form of radical artistic expression combining mathematics and scientific language. Fondation CAB is pleased to invite the exceptional artist Bernar Venet.. He will present a transversal beam of almost 25 meters commissioned by Fondation CAB. The installation will occupy the entire space of the foundation in an experimental approach. 5 historical works will also be added to this work, which will allow a better understanding
With the start of the new season, Fondation CAB is pleased to welcome French artist Claude Rutault (b. 1941, Trois Moutiers). First and foremost a painter, Rutault however doesn’t stress the importance of painting his works himself, nor does he necessarily participate in the supervision of their realisation.
