Raoul De Keyser
Opening on Saturday, November 1, the gallery will present new paintings by Belgian artist Raoul De Keyser. The exhibition, entitled Remnants, is the artist's second solo show at the gallery. In March 2004, a solo exhibition will open at the Whitechapel Gallery in London, which will travel to the Musée de Rochechouart, France; De Pont Foundation, Tilburg, the Netherlands; Fundaçao de Serralves, Porto, Portugal; and the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, Switzerland.
Raoul de Keyser's work has been shown internationally since the early 1970's. It has received wider recognition since its inclusion in Documenta IX in 1992. A catalogue raisonné of the artist's paintings made between 1980 and 1999 was published in 2000 as an accompaniment to a traveling retrospective. Over the last decade, De Keyser's paintings were included in international group exhibitions such as: Trouble Spot. Painting (MuKHA, Antwerp, 1999); Unbound. Possibilities in Painting (Hayward Gallery, London, 1994); and Der zerbrochene Spiegel. Positionen zur Malerei (Kunsthalle, Vienna and Deichtorhallen, Hamburg, 1993). In 2001, the artist had an exhibition with Luc Tuymans at the SMAK, in Gent, Belgium.
