Curated jointly with the Wallonia-Brussels Delegation and the Center for Engravings and Printed Image in La Louvière, the exhibition Pierre Alechinsky and the Writers brings forward the work of an artist of undisputed international profile, approached from the perspectives of the relationship between image and word. More precisely, it is a collection of 66 graphic artworks – book illustrations, posters and engravings – completed between 1967 and 2007 and centered on the artist’s involvement, both artistic and intellectual, with the work of several significant writers, such as Yves Bonnefoy, Michel Butor, Eugène Ionesco, Marcel Moreau, Emil Cioran among others. Aside from his collaboration, back in 1949-1951, with the famous international art group CoBra, Pierre Alechinsky (b. October 19, 1927) set himself on the contemporary art stage of the past half of century as a highly complex artist – painter, graphic designer, poet – preoccupied with the intimate association between form, configuration, sign and grapheme.
