Evening visit at Wiels : Jef Geys’ survey exhibition

Join us for a guided tour of Jef Geys’ exhibition “You don’t see what you think you see” with the curators of the show, Charlotte Friling and Dirk Snauwaert.

Art critics commonly describe Jef Geys’ work as “unruly, and impossible to categorize in conventional art-historical categories.” 

Always critical of image and language, Belgian artist Jef Geys (1934-2018) aimed at exposing “the patterns and structures behind what one thinks one sees,” and encouraged self-reflection and scepticism. 

WIELS takes this as a starting point for the large-scale survey of Geys’ heterogeneous work, enriched by documents from the artist’s archives. 

Join us and (re)discover the work of one of the most influential post-war Belgian artists.

After an introduction by Belgian artist Kasper Bosmans, curator Charlotte Friling and Dirk Snauwaert, director of WIELS, will give you a private tour in French and Dutch of "You don’t see what you think you see".
