Allegory of Cave Painting at Middelheim Museum, Antwerp

Allegory of Cave Painting - Group Exhibition

25 October 2014- 29 March 2015


Middelheim Museum and Extra City Kunsthal jointly present: a dual exhibition which assembles modern and contemporary painters, who provide a polyphonic answer to the prehistoric Bradshaw-paintings in Australia.

These prehistoric North-Western Australian rock paintings are continuously rejuvenated by their "living" pigments.


The central aspect of the exhibition in the Middelheim Museum is the dialectic of intimacy and knowledge of our relation with art objects.


The show assembles artworks of, amongst others, Ciprian Mureşan, Michèle Matyn, Alon Levin, Navid Nuur and Hans van Houwelingen, that dialogue with artists from the museum's collection, like Dan Graham, Ann Veronica Janssens, and Medardo Rosso.
