Guided tours at the WIELS Museum for TheMerode Members 

In collaboration with WIELS, TheMerode is organizing a guided tour with Charlotte Friling, curator for WIELS , for the exhibition of “industrial poems” by Marcel Broodthaers and the solo show by R.H. Quaytman followed by a drink.

In an unprecedented exhibition, elaborated in close collaboration with the Succession Marcel Broodthaers, WIELS presents the entire series of 36 main motifs of the plaques by Broodthaers, while also highlighting further unknown versions and variations, to reveal the artist’s idiosyncratic take on seriality and the reproducible, rare artwork and image. The exhibition also features unique prototypes, as well as a large group of drawings or preparatory sketches for the plaques, all in relation to a selection of ‘Open Letters’ by the artist.

WIELS is the main center for contemporary art in Brussels. A space for innovative ideas and creative experiences, it is located in a distinctive architectural building in the heart of the European capital. It has a mission to provide new perspectives and stimulate all senses through a daring and cutting-edge program. Initiated by art lovers, WIELS hosts temporary exhibitions of both established and emerging artists, shares and exchanges ideas through their international residency program, and holds numerous workshops for a wide array of audiences.
