Ronald Ophuis' work is featured in the group exhibition Maybe Tomorrow - Joris Ghekiere in Emergent. Curated by Hans Theys. The show runs from 1 November 2020 to 3 January 2021.
Joris Ghekiere (1955-2016) was a "painter for painters": a maker of refined paintings with special formal qualities such as an ingenious play with foreground and background and a substantive load that appears both dark and liberating. For this exhibition, philosopher, art historian and curator Hans Theys (° 1976) made a selection from the artist's legacy. These exquisite works are complemented for this exhibition by three artist cabinets devoted to rarely shown works by Raoul De Keyser, Walter Swennen, Luc Tuymans and Ronald Ophuis, and a selection from the oeuvre of some young, brilliant painters and sculptors.
