Collected Stories is Vanriet’s thirteenth solo exhibition at the De Zwarte Panter Gallery — their cooperation already started in 1973 — and gathers four themes of paintings inspired by classic images from the Glyptothek Museum in Munich, through intimate house scenes mixed with the hostility of the outside world, then comes the epic mourning after the crash of a football team, and finally the gouaches provided by Vanriet’s newest poetry collection Heldenleven (A Hero’s Life), published simultaneously by Polis.  For the catalogue of Collected Stories the painter gave details concerning the content and background of his work. They are complemented by an essay by the distinguished Polish poet and novelist Adam Zagajewski.



4 July 2020 – 27 September 2020

Curated by Reniere & Depla. Their vision for this show is “we want to show works which moved us, which amazed, with which we’ve had a strong connection.” Thirty-three artists from France and Belgium have been selected for this second edition, with a dialogue between modern and contemporary works, and a mix of well-known names with up and coming artists. This exhibition will take place in two different sites. The first one will be the 15th century palace of Nicolas Rolin, which now houses the Musée Rolin, a museum of archaeology and fine arts. A selection of works from the museum will be displayed next to contemporary works of art, in order to display the resonance between different works in the history of art.
Vanriet’s participation contains 7 paintings.
