Last Chance to see Bernar Venet at Fondation CAB
This week offers the final chance to see ‘Bernar Venet: The Hypothesis of the Straight Line’, at Fondation CAB in Brussels.
French conceptual artist, Bernar Venet, most known for his monumental sculptural works, was a prominent member of the New York avant-garde of the 1960s.
At Fondation CAB, the artist presents a newly commissioned work, which sees a 17-metre steel long beam occupy the foundation’s main gallery space. In addition, five historical works are shown alongside the new experimental sculpture, providing context to Bernar’s practice and artistic development.
Bernar’s work finds a fitting home in Fondation CAB, a striking 1930s Art Deco-style warehouse, originally built for the coal mining industry. Fondation CAB was established in 2012 by Belgian collector Hubert Bonnet, as a non-profit space dedicated to the promotion of Belgian and international minimalist and conceptual art.
