GENT.- Tatjana Pieters announced the passing of Philippe Van Snick, one of the precursors of conceptual painting in Belgium since the early 1970s. The artist lived and worked in Brussels, Belgium.

Van Snick held solo exhibitions at Wide White Space Gallery, Antwerp (BE, 1972, 1974, 1975), BOZAR, Brussels (BE, 1988), Zeno X Gallery, Antwerp (BE, 1990), Art Gallery of York University, Toronto (CA, 1999), S.M.A.K., Ghent (BE, 2001), Museum M, Leuven (BE, 2010), Tatjana Pieters, Ghent (BE, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018), Nuno Centeno, Porto (PT, 2013, 2018), Arcade, London (UK, 2014), Exile Gallery, Vienna (2019), Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro & Casa Modernista, São Paulo (BR, 2015), Grazer Kunstverein, Graz (AU, 2016), De Hallen, Haarlem (NL, 2016) and M HKA, Antwerp (BE, 2017).

In 2018 Van Snick was awarded the Ultima for Visual Arts 2017, a quality label with which the Flemish Community recognizes the cultural importance of the work of the winners. The artist was also chosen to make art for the new building of the Flemish Television, designed by Robbrecht & Daem and Dierendonckblancke Architects.

Work by Van Snick is included in the permanent collections of amongst others MoMA, NY (US), Mu.ZEE, Ostend, M HKA, Antwerp, S.M.A.K., Ghent (all BE) and many private & corporate collections worldwide. A selection of works are on display at S.M.A.K., Ghent & Roger Raveel Museum, Machelen-Zulte until October 2019.

We would like to extend our condolences to his family and friends, and especially to his wife and children. We wish them support and strength in dealing with this great loss and in the furthering and preservation of Van Snick's legacy, which they will be taking care of from now on.

We are extremely grateful for having had the privilege to develop a path of growth and friendship with Philippe Van Snick, for the collaboration on over 30 projects, exhibitions and art fairs and for the amazing work, love, wisdom and unique view on life and society he shared with us.
