Ghent, playing field of the visual arts, 1957-1987
Best wishes from Ghent!
Thursday December 22 at 6 pm KIOSK invites you for a drink on the occasion of the last presentation of The letters project in 2022. Best wishes from Ghent! shows a wide selection of greeting cards (Christmas and New Year) from the personal archives of Mi Van Landuyt and Paul Van Gysegem & Karin De Vriendt. The exhibited cards were received by them in the period between 1957 and 1987.
With special contributions from Jean Bilquin, Jan Burssens, Leo Copers, Amédée Cortier, Enk De Kramer, Karel Dierickx, Roger Raveel and Pierre Vlerick, among others.
The exhibition can be seen from December 19 to January 7, 2023 (KIOSK will be closed from December 24 to January 3, 2023). On Thursday 22 December at 6 pm we will raise a glass to the new year.
Last year, The Letters Project focused on letters from or to Ghent residents, or concerning the Ghent scene. Every week a different letter was shown in KIOSK, highlighting the context of this letter and/or answering the questions it raises. We are pleased to announce that the project will be extended for another year in 2023!
The Letters Project is an initiative of the research group Ghent, playing field of the visual arts (1957-1987) and KIOSK.
