Language Is Not Transparent [Brussels] 2017
Gladstone Gallery, Belgium
Gladstone Gallery is pleased to present Mel Bochner’s first solo show with the gallery and his first exhibition in Brussels for more than 20 years. For this show, Bochner will debut Language Is Not Transparent [Brussels, 2017], a wall piece taking its name from one of the artist’s most seminal works first shown at the Dwan Gallery in 1970. Bochner intends for this new iteration to premiere within Belgium’s bilingual context: translated into Flemish and French for the first time, this version adds new interpretations and layers of complexity to Bochner’s Conceptualist practice.
