WIELS’ major survey is devoted to Walter Swennen (b. 1946, Brussels), one of the most uncompromising and experimental painters working today. Just like others in his generation he approaches and explores the medium anew by applying principles from other disciplines. After his earliest activities as a poet in the 1960s, and in the aftermath of the visually reductive conceptual art and fundamental painting, Swennen decided in the 1980s to examine the poetical possibilities of painting.
