Risquons-Tout: Contemporary Artists Venture

Risk, Unpredictability and Transgression

ISBN: 9789462302587 (PB - E)

Risquons-Tout is an ambitious, thematic group exhibition that explores the potential of transgression and unpredictability. It examines how art challenges the homogenisation of thought in the now infamous echo chambers of our overcrowded info-sphere. Risquons-Tout presents some of the most innovative and influential artists and authors from the Eurocore region, which extends between Amsterdam, Paris, Cologne, Düsseldorf and London, with Brussels at its centre. The title is borrowed from a place located on the Belgian-French border, a real yet liminal space of transition, passage and informal exchanges, notably smuggling. The invited artists negotiate different dynamics of bridging, passing, translating and transgressing. In doing so they burst the safe bubbles generated by prediction algorithms, designed to avoid any risk, whether intellectual, financial, emotional or physical. The exhibition's geographic and political scope addresses today's global connectivity, trans-national circulation and diasporic movements. Risquons-Tout will occupy the entire WIELS building and range out into neighbouring exhibition and performance spaces. It will present the works of 38 internationally recognised or emerging artists. The exhibition proposes a rich array of practices that defy easy categorisation. Risquons-Tout will also include a performative section and an Open School that will serve as a laboratory for artists and scholars to draw upon questions of risk, unpredictability and borders through a range of alternative methods for the transmission of knowledge Artists: Anne-Mie Van Kerkhoven (BE) - Bernd Lohaus (BE/DE) - CATPC - Christian Nyampeta (UK/RW/NL) - Ed Atkins (UK) - Elaine Sturtevant (US/FR) - Esther Ferrer (ES) - Evelyn Taocheng Wang (CN/NL) - Ghislaine Leung (UK) - Heide Hinrichs (DE) - Isaac Julien (UK) - Jean De Lacoste (BE) - Jef Geys (BE) - Joëlle Tuerlinckx (BE) - Julien Creuzet (BQ/FR) - Kati Heck (DE/BE) - Laure Prouvost (FR/BE) - Lise Duclaux (FR/BE) - Lubaina Himid (Zanzibar/UK) & Magda Stawarska-Beavan (PL/UK) - Lydia Ourahmane (DZ/UK) & Alex Ayed (BE) - Manon De Boer (IN/NL/BE) & Latifa Laâbissi (FR) - Manuel Graf (DE) - Melike Kara (DE) - Monika Stricker (DE) - Mounira Al Solh (LB/NL) - Neïl Beloufa (FR) - Nora Turato (HR/NL) - Panamarenko (BE) - Peter Buggenhout (BE) - Philippe van Snick (BE) - Shezad Dawood (UK) - Sina Seifee (DE) - Sophie Nys (BE) - Suchan Kinoshita (JP/DE) - Tarek Lakhrissi (FR)
