8th Biennial of Painting

From 26 June to 2 October 2022, the three visual arts museums on the banks of the river Leie – Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, Museum Deinze and the Leie Region and Museum Roger Raveel – present the 8th edition of the Biennial of Painting.

This edition focuses on genealogies: how artists are influenced by masters and movements, but also by imaginary connections that cross time and space. How painting, as the most classical medium, can be a vector to situate oneself within or outside traditions.

The exhibition at MDD - The 't' is silent – is curated by the curator - theoretician Gabi Ngcobo (1974, Umlazi, South Africa) and artist Oscar Murillo (1986, Valle del Cauca, Colombia).
