Set up in 1979, LA CHÂTAIGNERAIE occupies a small manor house (1830-1840) bordered by age-old chestnut trees. Exhibitions range from a retrospective of a historical nature to the most contemporary expression, passing through all the techniques. In this way, La Châtaigneraie confirms its vocation as a place for promoting artists as well as the wish to create a place for meetings and awareness. The Centre publishes historical works and monographs.
La Châtaigneraie takes part in the 2018 edition of the "Biennale de l'Image Possible" - BIP.
Around the theme of adolescence, La Châtaigneraie proposes to discover famous and emerging artists in an exhibition that brings together photographs, visual arts and videos. With works of: Charlotte BEAUDRY - Carole BELLAÏCHE - Sian DAVEY - Xavier ISTASSE - Jean JANSSIS - Sarah KALISKI - James MOLLISON - Annie VAN GEMERT. Commissariat: Emmanuel D'Autreppe.
Promoting young artists, helping them in the early stages of their careers, proposing a first exhibition and facilitating their transition to professional artistic life, are some of the missions assigned to La Châtaigneraie. In this exhibition you will discover a selection of artists from the Academy of Fine Arts of Liege (E. S. A. V. L.) graduates in 2016 and 2017.
A cross look between 2 artists. One is from Hainaut, the other is from Liège but they both express themselves through installation even if one is conceptual while the other is more abstract. They are also teachers, respectively in Mons and Liège. Common points and divergences, they expressed the wish to question and answer themselves through an exhibition.
Opening of the new exhibition FROM THE ACADEMY (E.S.A.V.L.) TO LA CHÂTAIGNERAIE at 18:30h.
