Exhibition: Portrait of a Lady (Belgium)

Through a series of artworks, Portrait of a Lady illustrates the various forms of representation of women from prehistoric times to today, as well as the more specific journeys of a few exceptional women. Grouping a selection of ancient and contemporary pieces, the exhibition will establish a dialogue between different cultures and civilizations from the East and the West.

This project aims to honour the portraits of both renowned and unknown women from long ago to today. In addition to historical figures, the artworks convey images of Greece and Africa, with insights into the stories of the Queen of Sheba and Dido, Queen of Carthage. From the personification of fertility to the representations of courtesans and empresses, the exhibition endeavours to shed light on the different views and interpretations of women through the ages.

Exhibition: Is it for a boy or a girl… !? (Belgium)

The Little Museum is a space for learning where exhibits are displayed at a child’s eye level. Here children can discover pieces from the BPS22 col lection, selected according to current themes. This space invites a dialogue between children and the works, but also between generations.

The new exhibition at the Little Museum addresses the issue of gender and the associated stereotypes. Through a selection of works, the subject is approached from the angle of leisure, work, clothing style or further questions the difference between sex and gender.

We are declared as a boy or a girl at birth. Is that why little girls should be surrounded by pink and glitter and little boys by blue or dark colours? Why is it that dolls are more commonly offered to girls and cars to boys in toy catalogues and shops? And when girls and boys go to school together later, do they play the same games? Do they play the same sports? Do they want to work in the same professions? Is it true that girls are more gentle and boys fight more? ... So many questions have been raised for years and still remain current!

Artists : Frédéric Blin, Hector Chavepeyer, Antoine Detaille, Michèle Godin, Laurence Gonry, Guerilla Girls, Ernest Hanotiaux, Georges Higuet, Michel Holyman, Michel Jamsin, René Magritte, Michel Meerts, Perrine Moreau, Ernest Patris, Calisto Peretti, Jacques Richez, Javier M.

Fair share! Visibility for women artists.

Even though we are all paralyzed facing the war in Ukraine, the action alliance fair share! wants to celebrate the International Women's Day on March 8, which was proclaimed "Day for Women's Rights and World Peace" by the United Nations in 1975.

We women artists raise our voices in solidarity and empathy with all those who have been and are being deprived of them.

On 8.3. at 2 p.m. we will perform in front of the Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin for more visibility of women artists.

A woman in every window: 110 women artists and cultural workers will walk around the Neue Nationalgalerie in a 30-minute performance. On their T-shirts they will wear the name of a woman artist of the Classical Modern period who could be represented in the museum's show collection if the management of the museum - and comparable museums - had taken more interest in the work of women artists. Each participant in our campaign becomes an expert on "her" artist.

After the performance, visitors can contact the participants and ask them about their live and works. In this way, a pool of information is created that makes many still undiscovered, long forgotten and strongly underrepresented women artists visible.

We cordially invite you to join us.

Together with a group of LGBTQ+ art lovers, they selected twelve works in their halls that showcase how diverse gender and sexuality were practiced through the centuries. Visitors, regardless of their gender or nature, are invited to focus on topics they may have never considered before.
