BRUSSELS, BELGIUM.- The Center For Fine Art, Brussels, presents Treasures Old and New from Wallonia - A curious Land, on view through May 18, 2008. Between the 12th and the 16th centuries, illuminators, painters, sculptors, goldsmiths, and musicians, all from a region not yet known as Wallonia, helped to mould a culture whose influence extended throughout Europe. Masterpieces by Joachim Patenier, Henri Blès, Robert Campin, Jacques Du Broeucq, and Hugo d'Oignies, from both celebrated museums and unknown collections, present a freely drawn portrait of a region whose popular beliefs and stories combine to evoke distinctive ways of seeing life. Through more than 140 outstanding works, Laurent Busine, the exhibition's curator, presents a highly individual, personal vision of Wallonia, a vivid image of which emerges equally from the works of the past and from contemporary contributions (by Orla Barry, Michel François, Jean-Pol Godart, Juan Paparella, Beat Streuli, and Angel Vergara). The exhibition was curated by Laurent Busine (director MAC'S, musée des arts contemporains du Grand-Hornu).
