Serge Vandercam

exhibition and book presentation

24 October - 28 December, 2019

Callewaert Vanlangendonck releases a new book about the painter Serge Vandercam (1924-2005), “Nuclear Times (1953-1963)”. The publication, with a text by historian David Vermeiren, explores Vandercam’s most international period. His radical Cobra photography is only a starting point, while the main focus is on his informal work, until the early sixties. ┬áDuring this period, he exhibited at home and abroad alongside artists such as Cy Twombly and Piero Manzoni and was involved in the European Informal avant-garde interfering with “Phases”, “Arte Nucleare” and many other art movements.
