Event description
BruocsellA - Women from Brussels show at K.L.8

About this event

11% of art acquired by the top museums for their permanent collections was by women. 78% of galleries represent more men than women. 27% of living contemporary artists in the Tate Collection are women.

In 2021, women’s voices are still underrepresented.

This issue is felt further than simple statistics. Sandra Meilunaite, curator of and artist in our new exhibition BruocsellA, saw that the Fine Arts department she studied at was filled with mostly women students when she started out. But when it became time to graduate, the ratio of men was higher than ever. And even after attaining a degree, women are pushed to the sidelines.

K.L.8 has always striven for an equal approach to their representation of artists. But we have to go further and work towards an equitable approach. BruocsellA will give a voice solely to women working and/or living in Brussels. The original name of Brussels, namely Bruocsella, proves with its -a declension that Brussels was female from the beginning.

But BruocsellA wants to go beyond the idea of women's rights. It is not meant to show that women are forgotten or “in a weaker position”. Women are more than social issues. BruocsellA focuses on the quality and subject of the artists, which goes beyond one issue. The curation leaves gender aside and focuses on the work itself and its strength in any capacity or context. Women are more than the obstacles they overcome. They are as complete as any human being, and their strength shows in the caliber and diversity of their work.

We invite you to come to see the exhibition, opening on 30 October 2021 at 18h (by reservation via our Eventbrite). We remain open from 31 October until 5 November 2021, 13h - 18h.

With work by Bo Vloors, Chloé Van Oost, Ilke Cop , Ines Thora , Justine Cappelle , Luth Lea Roose , Marjolein Guldentops , Mariia Dergacheva, Set Chevallier, Sofia Druzhinina, Sandra Meilūnaitė & Yasmine Jay.
