Kendell Geers features on the exhibition BXL Universal at Centrale for Contemporary Art in Brussels, until 26 March 2017.

Gathering 40 international artists, the exhibition The Importance of Being… has traveled to four major museums in Latin America in a period of 18 months, offering a panorama of the contemporary art scene in Belgium. Curated by Sara Alonso Gómez, it includes the works of Kendell Geers. The exhibition ends on 14 July at the Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil.

Kendell Geers and 40 Belgian artists in Latin America

Until February 14 Kendell Geers appears on the group exhibition The Importance of Being: A Panorama on Belgian Contemporary Art at the Museo de Arte Moderna, Rio de Janeiro. The exhibition, which is curated by by Sara Alonso Gómez, opened earlier in the year at Museo Nacional de Bells Artes in La Habana, Cuba, then toured to Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in Buenos Aires, Argentina. With a focus on 40 contemporary Belgian artists, the exhibition raises questions concerning the polymorphy of the multilingual, transcultural mindset associated with a certain – elusive – Belgian identity.
