Event Description

Marc De Cock succeeded Dr Roger Matthys as chairman of the Association for the Museum of Contemporary Art in 1979. He thus became the third chairman of the organisation to which present-day S.M.A.K. owes its existence. Together with Karel Geirlandt and Dr Roger Matthys, Marc De Cock can easily be called one of the imaginary architects of today’s museum.

This exhibition paints an imaginary portrait of Marc De Cock through artworks from the Matthys-Colle Collection and S.M.A.K. The selection represents his personality and commitment and reads like a visual essay.

Featuring work by Dirk Braeckman, Berlinde De Bruyckere, Thierry De Cordier, Raoul De Keyser, Joel Fischer, Michel François, Gilbert & George, Ann Veronica Janssens, Mike Kelley, Bernd Lohaus, Attila Richard Lukacs, Bruce Nauman, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Thomas Schütte, Walter Swennen, Luc Tuymans, Richard Tuttle, Jan Van Imschoot, Philip Van Isacker and Franz West.
