From 26 July to 18 October 2020, the three visual art museums at the banks of the Leie —Museum of Deinze and the Leie Region (Mudel), Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens in collaboration with Sint-Martens-Latem, and Roger Raveel Museum — join forces to present the 7th edition of the Biennial of Painting.
Under the title Binnenskamers – a title chosen long before the corona crisis – the Biennial is an exciting opportunity to discover a wide selection of modern and recent paintings from Belgium and internationally. From such historical figures as Jean Brusselmans, Roger Raveel, Gust De Smet and Emile Claus to contemporary practitioners like Joëlle Dubois, Chantal Akerman, Walid Raad, Bendt Eyckermans and Luc Tuymans, the Biennial offers a unique cross-section of the medium in its diversity.
The works included in the Biennial depict an equally wide range of inner spaces, among them the studio, the domestic interior and the inner realm of the imagination. Yet the theme also speaks to the stunning natural landscape of the Leie region. As there can be no inside without outside, Biennial visitors can enjoy the works on display as well as the inspiring surroundings of Deinze, Deurle, Machelen-Zulte and Latem.
Whether by bike, public transport, car or on foot, the Biennial is an open invitation to visitors of all ages to mix world-class art with an enjoyable day out in the country.useums at the banks of the Leie —mudel, MDD in collaboration with Sint-Martens-Latem, and Roger Raveel Museum — join forces to present the 7th edition of the Biennial of Painting.
