Dvir Gallery to Open a Second Branch in Brussels
The inaugural show is dedicated to Chantal Akerman.
Dvir Gallery, one of the leading contemporary art dealers in Israel, has announced it is opening a second location in Brussels, Belgium.
Dvir will join the gallery hub at 67 rue de la Régence, which also houses galleries Jan Mot, Catherine Bastide, Mon Cheri, and since 2015 hosts the offices of the Belgian edition of the Independent art fair, launched by American art dealer Elizabeth Dee.
The inaugural group exhibition at the new space will open on January 28 with the title “Je Tu Il Elle,” after the 1976 film by the late Belgian filmmaker and artist Chantal Akerman, to whom the show is dedicated. The exhibition will feature new site specific pieces made for the occasion by artists Adel Abdessemed, Mirosław Bałka, and Latifa Echakhch.
In an email to artnet News, gallery co-director Yotam Shalit-Intrator explained that the decision to expand “is a natural progression of the gallery’s activities. A few years ago we combined our three spaces around Tel Aviv into a five-story building, and it’s time to grow outside of Tel Aviv.”
Dvir Gallery, founded in 1982 by Dvir Intrator, represents a mix of contemporary Israeli and international artists including Abdessemed, Balka, and Echakhch, Naama Tsabar, Omer Fast, Mircea Cantor, Dor Guez, Claire Fontaine, Douglas Gordon, Shilpa Gupta, Jonathan Monk, and Lawrence Weiner, among others.
“Je Tu Il Elle” will run from January 28 – March 5.
