The shine of the sun on an old timer’s chrome details captured to perfection: it’s the fantasy of any painter with hyperrealistic tendencies. Canvases so lifelike that they can almost pass for a photograph, or even some that do; these are the gems soon on display in the Museum of Ixelles. The first weekend of summer holidays also marks the first chance to go see how a post Word War II generation criticized the American capitalist way of thinking – and in doing so, painstakingly taught itself the remarkable skill of perfect recreation. The exhibition is coming for a visit after successful showings in Bilbao and Madrid.
📅 Wed 29th June-Sun 25th Sept 2016, opening night on the 29th is free to the public from 6:30 pm-9:00 pm
