Exhibitions on tour - Cartoons from Belgium
The European Cartoon Centre has curated a new travelling exhibition with cartoons of Belgian cartoonists version 2022:
The Belgian Art in Cartoons - From the Flemish Masters to the Comic Strip.
The exhibition is meant to promote the Belgian cartoon abroad. Therefore an international jury did chose the cartoons they would like to see hanging on the museum walls. The members of the jury were: Marlene Pohle (Argentina), Fawzy Morsy (Egypt), Jitet Koestana (Indonesia), Ivailo Tsvetkov (Bulgaria), Leila Alaiy (Iran) and Marco D'Agostino (Italy).
From the more than 100 participating Belgian cartoonists, they selected the work of the following artists for the exhibition:
Philippe Bossens, Marc De Bel, Leon De Borger, Luc Descheemaeker, Hans Dierick, Raphaël Donay, Patrick Heymans, Tony Houbrechts, Jean-Claude Salemi, Stijn Lauwers, Marc Ghijsels, Jan Op de Beeck, Stefaan Provijn, Constantin Sunnerberg, Tony Tasco, Wouter Van Ghysegem, Norbert Van Yperzeele, Trui Vanden Berghe, Eric Vandenberghe, Bert Vanstiphout, Francois Veldeman, Luc Vernimmen and Geert Verscheure-Stefaan Veys.
The exhibition with some 50 cartoons is a promotion of the Belgian cartoon by the ECC.
Previous editions of 'Cartoons from Belgium' have been shown in Argentina, Egypt, Russia, Italy, Turkey, Poland, Estonia, France, etc.
Before starting this promotional campaign, we want to show the cartoons in the ECC. You can visit the exhibition from 17 April to 19 June, every Sunday from 10 a.m. to noon and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
On the ECC-blog you can find articles on the opening ceremony of this exhibition in Shrewsbury and Cairo.
