ECCE HOMO is based on a strong collaboration of Gallery GEUKENS & DE VIL with MARION DE CANNIÈRE and Belgian art-critic ERIC RINCKHOUT.
The main goal of this exhibition is to explore the historical theme of the ‘Ecce Homo’ in a broad sense within contemporary art in Belgium.
We live in an era in which humanity and mankind are violated on different levels; more and more we are confronted by essential differences in the development and freedom of humankind in various parts of the world.
This exhibition wants to show how artists approach “la condition humaine” of today’s world.
There are no restrictions regarding gender or race and all art disciplines are incorporated: painting, collage, drawing, sculpture, installation, video, photography and performance.
It was an intended decision to choose only artists living and working in Belgium with the exception of one artist that we could not ignore considering the subject: Philippe Vandenberg.
ECCE HOMO started several years ago in the mind of art historians Yasmine Geukens & Marie-Paule De Vil as a small group exhibition but evolved today into a grand event that takes place on several locations in the city of Antwerp.
It has become a unique collaboration between institutions of all sorts: Ackermans & van Haaren, Bank J.Van Breda & C°, Museums Mayer van den Bergh and Maagdenhuis, Institute of Tropical Medicine, St. George’s church, St. Elizabeth Hospital, Gallery Geukens & De Vil, Marion de Cannière and the city of Antwerp.
It’s uniqueness also shows in the fact that it is the very first time in Belgium that so many artists, living in Belgium, of different age and gender, some of which still emerging while others with international fame, all come together and show work focusing on one main universal subject.
With this exhibition we do offer a forum for the artists but we ourselves equally insist on actively contributing to the development of man on a humanitarian base. Therefore a part of the profit from the sold works will be donated to HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH.
While they are active in a broad range of activities and topics, we will focus on women’s and child’s-issues (child marriage, sextrafficking, gender-equality, women-empowerment, …)
