Born today: Piet Mondrian (1872)
It has just started! Within the 450th anniversary of Bruegel, the exhibition PRINTS IN THE AGE OF BRUEGEL, presented jointly by BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels and the Royal Library of Belgium, paints a picture of print production in the Southern Netherlands in the age of Bruegel. The exhibition will be open until 23rd June 2019. Other Bruegel-related events are listed here.

Prints & contemporary practice
Contemporary artistic practice is involved in the 450 Bruegel events too: the landscape architect Bas Smets and his agency developed a method that meticulously dissects landscapes. By applying this method to the most iconic landscape paintings by Bruegel, they highlight the importance of trees and other vertical elements in Breugel’s compositions.
This project could be connected with another one where contemporary artists meet and take inspiration from a public collection of prints: it's the Present Archives project organised by the Association ARTECO based in Turin, recently presented during a conference at Camera. After an international call, the two chosen artists (Alessandra Messali and Ryts Monet) started working on the prints held at the Biblioteca Nazionale Universitaria in Turin.
