Belgium-Argentina: encounters across the atlantic

Delhez Victor Compositie met driehoek ca. 1926

Modern art between 1910-1958

What do Belgium and Argentina have in common? 
More than you might suspect!

This astonishing story is told through these extraordinary exhibitions that explore the artistic ties between Belgium and Argentina from 1910 through 1958. It focuses on an artist network comprising three individuals who were either directly or indirectly in contact with one another.

The exhibition concerns the Belgian-Argentinian artist, Julio Payro, who developed a lifelong friendship with Paul Delvaux, the Belgian artist, Victor Delhez, who emigrated to Argentina after the death of his parents, and the Argentinian lawyer, Ignacio Pirovano, friend of Vantongerloo and collector of his works.

This is an unprecedented, unique narrative that includes masterful pieces by Belgium and Argentina’s modernist elite, among others including Victor Delhez, Frans Masereel, Marthe Donas, Paul Delvaux, Georges Vantongerloo, Anne Bonnet, Jo Delahaut and Alejandro Xul Solar, Emilio Pettoruti, Raquel Forner, Tomas Maldonado, Victor Magariños, and Juan Del Prete.
