Luc Tuymans: Artistís Talk

Join Luc Tuymans in the exhibition for an intimate discussion of Belgian-born artist Luc Tuymans' powerful work.

Belgian-born artist Luc Tuymans has made a significant contribution to the medium of painting over the past fifteen years. His work begins where modernist painting made its fundamental gestures of destruction. Simultaneously mourning painterly representation while constructing its failure, his canvases frequently address the seemingly inexpressible horrors of history, and interrogate the nature of memory and its depiction. A distinctive palette of bleached and faded colours marks his ‘authentic forgeries’, which take on themes ranging from Christ’s Passion, to the Holocaust, to the colonial experience of the 1950s Belgian Congo. Join Luc Tuymans in the exhibition for an intimate discussion of his powerful work.
