Limited Edition Art Fair
Prints & Multiples
From 14 to 16 February 2020, from 10 am to 8 pm
The Boghossian Foundation celebrates printed images and multiples for an unprecedented art fair, which will open its doors on the 14, 15 and 16 February 2020.
The Limited Edition Art Fair aims to show diverse works to the public : offset prints, lithographs, engravings, silkscreen prints, etchings, illustrations, ceramics, photographs… with each piece created in a limited edition series.
From the copyist scribes in Ancient Egypt, to the invention of the press and the development of woodblock printing in Egypt in the 1400s, multiples have had a rich and long tradition throughout history.
The act of printing images and texts in multiple copies helps circulate information or artwork more broadly. Series enable the popularization and appropriation of works; artistic works produced in many versions can be acquired at a reduced price. Both plural and authentic, images or objects produced in several versions become more accessible.
Art amateurs are welcome to discover works by both emerging and established Belgian and international artists. The fair showcases several collaborations with its platform for contemporary production.
Over the course of the weekend, international publishers, specialized galleries and prominent Belgian institutions such as the Centre de la Gravure et de l’Image imprimée will take over the Villa Empain. An original selection is dedicated to the rich work of more than twenty artists who participated in the Boghossian Foundation’s Artist in Residency program.
Artists in residency: Zeina Abirached, Anastasia Bay, Charbel-joseph H. Boutros, Elina Brotherus, Gregory Buchakjian, Adrien Cicero, Simon Deppierraz, Chloé Dugit-Gros, Amanda Riffo, Noa Giniger, Elie Godard, Marco Godinho, Bruno Hellenbosch, Jiana Kim, Nelly Maurel, Marine Pagès, Sandrine Pelletier, Thomas Perino, Nicolas Pol, Adam Vackar.
