After four suc­ces­sful years, and with 130 Friends of Atelier José Vermeersch and coun­ting, we are plea­sed to announ­ce our fes­ti­ve pro­gram­me for 2022. Starting in September, we will cele­bra­te 100 Years José Vermeersch’ in grand fas­hi­on. This spe­ci­al event, orga­ni­sed with Westtoer and the Municipality of Lendelede, will inclu­de three exhi­bi­ti­ons, the publi­ca­ti­on of a book span­ning Vermeersch’s oeu­vre, a web­si­te and docu­men­ta­ry film (with tes­ti­mo­nies) and a rede­s­ig­ned wal­king rou­te. Your generous sup­port in pre­vious years has ena­b­led us to con­ti­nue to orga­ni­se two exhi­bi­ti­ons a year, as well as con­ti­nue to devel­op the archi­ves of José Vermeersch and pre­ser­ve and res­to­re his work. 

The non-pro­fit orga­ni­za­ti­on Atelier José Vermeersch is hou­sed in the for­mer stu­dio of visu­al artist José Vermeersch (19221997). The stu­dio and adjoi­ning exhi­bi­ti­on spa­ce were built in Lendelede bet­ween 1962 and 1970 and desig­ned by the artist himself. Vermeersch sculp­ted, pain­ted, and pre­sen­ted his works the­re until his death in December 1997. In 2010, the stu­dio was made open to the public, beco­ming the new resi­den­ce of the non-pro­fit orga­ni­sa­ti­on Atelier José Vermeersch. 11 exhi­bi­ti­ons have taken pla­ce the­re since.

Atelier José Vermeersch was born out of a two­fold ambi­ti­on. On the one hand, we aim to make the work of José Vermeersch acces­si­ble by hou­sing the archi­ve in the stu­dio. Besides this, we want to orga­ni­se exhi­bi­ti­ons that high­light les­ser or unknown aspects of his work. In this way we can explo­re the las­ting rele­van­ce José Vermeersch’s oeu­vre and give the archi­ve and leg­a­cy a home in his own stu­dio com­plex. On the other hand, the­re will also be room for sepa­ra­te exhi­bi­ti­ons, some­ti­mes fra­med by a litera­ry, phi­lo­so­p­hi­cal or musi­cal acti­vi­ty. One to two times a year, well- and les­ser-known Belgian artists will be given a plat­form, indi­vi­du­al­ly or in groups. With the­se exhi­bi­ti­ons, Atelier José Vermeersch intends to beco­me an exci­ting mee­ting pla­ce for artists and art lovers. As a friend of the ate­lier’, you’ll be the first to be infor­med of the­se acti­vi­ties and enjoy various exclu­si­ve benefits.
