Magritte, Broodthaers et l’art contemporain
René Magritte still fascinates us, 50 years after his death. He constantly undermines our certainties. Magritte’s mysterious and provocative work continues to influence the generations that followed, from pop and conceptual art, to the most contemporary artistic creations.
The Royal Museums of Fine Arts in Brussels are staging the exhibition Magritte, Broodthaers & Contemporary Art (13 October 2017–18 February 2018), in which they bring together over 50 masterpieces by René Magritte with a large number of modern and contemporary artworks. The central focus is on the dialogue that Marcel Broodthaers maintained with Magritte’s oeuvre: their shared interest in the writing of Mallarmé and exploration of the status of the object and of language lead to a new perspective on their relationship. This legacy is highlighted through works by modern and contemporary artists like Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha and César.
The book accompanying the exhibition includes contributions by art critics and writers such as Pepe Karmel, Sara Cochran, Noëllie Roussel and the curator Michel Draguet.
