The result of a fruitful collaboration of more than eight years between the gallery and the artist, the Almine Rech Gallery present the first exhibition by Hedi Slimane in Brussels. Fragments Americana follows Young American, a project presented in 2007 at the FOAM Photography Museum in Amsterdam which showed portraits of young creators from New York such as Dan Colen, Terence Koh, Nate Lowman and Dash Snow.
Representative of their era, or of a certain era, Slimane’s pictures manifest themselves in the form of allegories of the present, legitimizing, for instance, the emergence of a new rock aesthetic which takes pleasure in posing, accepting its romantic desires and classical features.
Until March 26
