BRUXELLES | Châtelain

17 May > 15 Jun 2024


From 17 May to 15 June 2024, François AVRIL will be paying tribute to his favourite city, Brussels, at the Huberty & Breyne gallery in Brussels just as the artist prepares to quit the Belgian capital, where he has lived for the last twelve years. Through a new series of paintings and drawings, the exhibition entitled BXL offers viewers a poetic and highly personal vision of the city and its various districts that is far removed from the regular tourist haunts.  

"You won't find the Horta Museum, the Grand Place or the Manneken-Pis in this exhibition. What you will find is My Brussels. The lower part of town, extending from the Gare du Midi to the Place de Brouckère via Le Sablon and Les Marolles with its open-air flea market an area where I have really enjoyed wandering about and hunting for curios."
François AVRIL

The exhibition coincides with the publication jointly by SKIRA and the Huberty & Breyne gallery of a book that brings together some hundred paintings executed by Francois AVRIL over the last twelve years.
