|East vs. West (6th of August 2009 - 18th of October 2009)

Works included by Shi Xinning, Zhang Huan, Wang Guangyi, Andy Warhol, Thomas SchĂĽtte, Yves Klein & Juan Munoz.
|Now you see me, now you don't: The artist who turns himself into the Invisible Man (24th of October 2009 - 22th of November 2009)
In Liu Bolinâ€™s recent series, Urban Camouflage, Bolin paints his subjects as a continuation of their surrounding environment so that they blend almost seamlessly into the background, thereby questioning the boundary between subject and environment. Individuality is an important issue in a country still scrambling to rise up from the Cultural Revolution.

|Un balisage contemporain et actuel
(La Libre) by Claude Lorent
A l'occasion de la nouvelle annĂ©e, les galeries knokkoises se mobilisent. DiversitĂ© du pop au minimalisme avec la photo Ă©rotique.
A Bruxelles, la plupart des galeries d'art marquent une pose jusqu'au 10 janvier mais Knokke a pris le relais par un vernissage commun samedi 29 dĂ©cembre dernier durant l'aprĂ¨s-midi. On le sait, la ville balnĂ©aire partage avec la capitale et Anvers le privilĂ¨ge de rassembler un nombre important de galeries d'art contemporain et parmi les meilleures. Ce sont les ensembles qui se taillent la part belle dans une alternance d'oeuvres rĂ©centes et d'autres appartenant dĂ©jĂ Ă l'histoire contemporaine.
