Balls & Glory at Rodolphe Janssen

Following visits of fifty-some artists studios in Belgium, Rodolphe Janssen gallery will present works by nine very diverse and emerging artists. The title of the exhibition not only refers to the eponymous restaurant in Ghent where the idea was born during a lunch meeting in between studio visits. It also underlines the ambition of these nine artists as well as the purpose of the show, to put a spotlight on talented artists who haven’t yet had many opportunities to showcase their works.

The aim of the exhibition is not to give an overview of the Belgian art scene; it is rather the result of ‘field- work’ in the art scene and a reflection of those things that caught the gallery’s attention.

After having organized a dozen exhibitions with young American artists at the gallery, many also in colla- boration with the New York based Still House Group, this show will highlight a part of the young Belgian art scene. Nine artists with different backgrounds, each in their way, breathe new life into this artistic landscape.
