WIELS Contemporary Art Centre opens its season with the premiere of an expansive solo exhibition of Polish sculptor Alina Szapocznikow (1926-1973). This major event, the fruit of an exceptional collaboration initiated by WIELS and the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, is one of the first large-scale surveys of the artist’s work outside of Poland and concentrates in particular on her late period from 1955 to her untimely death in the early ’70s, at age 47.
