Roberto Polo Gallery, in collaboration with the City of Brussels and Cinéma Galeries I The Underground, is honoured to present the manifesto exhibition Painting After Postmodernism I Belgium – USA, curated by the distinguished American art historian Barbara Rose. The exhibition, comprising 256 paintings in 16 solo shows of 8 American and 8 Belgian prominent artists, as well as its accompanying 208-page catalogue published by Lannoo, is devoted to defining new modes of painting that reconstitute, rather than deconstruct the elements of painting in fresh new syntheses free of dogma and theoretical reduction.

The unprecedented historical exhibition Painting After Postmodernism I Belgium – USA will take place in two public spaces in Brussels: 6 000 m2 spanning 6 storeys of the historic Vanderborght building and 1 000 m2 of Cinéma Galeries I The Underground. The USA will be represented by artists Walter Darby Bannard, Karen Gunderson, Martin Kline, Melissa Kretschmer, Lois Lane, Paul Manes, Ed Moses and Larry Poons; Belgium by Mil Ceulemans, Joris Ghekiere, Bernard Gilbert, Marc Maet, Werner Mannaers, Xavier Noiret-Thomé, Bart Vandevijvere and Jan Vanriet.
