The CENTRALE for contemporary art shows for the first time an exhibition of a major artist of the Brussels art scene. Emilio LÓPEZ-MENCHERO, a Brussels citizen of Spanish origin, was singled out by his performances in the capital (such as Checkpoint Charlie at the Canal – 2010) and the emblematic urban integration Pasionaria, a megaphone near the South Station – 2006. Multifaceted artist, he developed a protean work (painting, video, photography, performance). At our suggestion, he chose to enter into dialogue with the world-renowned artist, Esther FERRER, a pioneer of performance art. Both of Spanish origin, their efforts come together through the themes of identity and corporeality. An exceptional exhibition of two artists for whom art is a political space for freedom beyond the dictates of all kinds.
