Exhibition I, Gustave at the Halles Saint-Gery in Brussels – from 9 Septembre to 28 November 2016

A family-oriented exhibition to explore the enchanting world of Brussels architect Gustave Strauven.

Schaerbeek/Schaarbeek native Gustave Strauven is a character who’s worth the detour. Bold, masterful and, from time to time, whimsical, he was the architect for some sixty buildings in Brussels.

This fun exhibition gives you the chance to get inside the mind of the great Strauven. Gustave the bold will introduce you to his repertoire of materials and the unlikely combinations he came up with. Gustave the masterful will show you the extent of his vocabulary, before the colourist comes on stage to amaze you with his palette. The composer will draw you into the third dimension that brings his façades to life. The charmer will challenge you, shhh!

Why not come to Halles Saint-Géry/Sint-Gorikshallen and seek out those small details that make all the difference.

Congress Sculpting the Sculptor at the University in Barcelona – from 10 to 11 November 2016

The Congress Sculpting the Sculptor addresses the processes by which the sculptor evolves and develops their professional career, from start to end. It also analyses the processes that result in the relative success, among their peers and for the future generations, of both the sculptor and their work.

SESSION 3. The trade of the sculptor abroad: voyages and intercultural connection in Europe (c. 1890-1915)

The goal of this thematic field is to explore the relationships established between the different cultures, artistic manifestations or training methodologies as a result of the voyages or sojourns by certain sculptors abroad. On a geographical level this table will focus on Europe, with a special interest in Paris, London and Rome, which attracted the highest number of Catalan and Spanish artists as the principal cultural centers of the chronological period considered.

Organised by the research group GRACMON of the Art History Department of the University of Barcelona
