rodolphe janssen is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition at the gallery of Belgian artist Fred Bervoets (b. 1942 in Antwerp, Belgium. Lives and works in Antwerp, Belgium), which takes place from September 7th to October 14th, 2023. Fred Bervoets: Paintings & Works on Paper from the Stéphane Janssen Collection celebrates the recent donation of a significant body of work from the Stéphane Janssen collection to the KMSKA, Antwerp, Belgium and the S.M.A.K., Ghent, Belgium.
Stéphane Janssen was Fred Bervoets’s first dealer from 1967-70. In the following decade and for the next thirty years, he became one of his main collectors and a fervent advocate of his work. In addition to exhibitions organized in Europe, Stéphane Janssen introduced his work in the United States in the late 1980s. Several major shows followed, including A Museum in the Making in 1994 at the Scottsdale Center for the Arts, Scottsdale, AZ USA, which featured a dialogue between his works and those of the American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.
