    • Walter Swennen


    Belgian artist Walter Swennen (b. 1948) is the focus of a vast survey exhibition conceived in collaboration with Culturgest Lisbon, where the exhibition tour starts. Swennen, known as a pioneer of the ‘new painting’ of the 1980s, has never made spontaneous or expressive paintings, preferring instead precise pictorial treatments that use poetic and humorous means to analyze the relationship between symbols, legibility, meaning and pictorial treatment. The show at WIELS will include some of Swennen’s earliest work, focusing especially on his lesserknown ‘Pop’ works, as well as on drawings and poems from the 1970s..
