Callewaert Vanlangendonck Gallery, founded in 2012 in Antwerp, Belgium, displays lyrical and geometrically abstract artists from the following groups: Cobra, Art Abstrait, Art Construit, Formes, G58, the New Flemish School and the ZERO movement and contemporary artists in line with this visual language. The gallery works together with the artists, their heirs or artist estates and also publishes art books on its represented artists.
Gallery owners Yoeri Vanlangendonck and Brecht Callewaert emphasize the importance and the contemporary character of the Belgian artists of the 1950s and 1960s. By engaging them in a dialogue with current abstract artists, an interaction between present and past arises. It shows how timeless, universal and cross-border this avant-garde art still is. The gallery has two spaces: one at both corners of the Wolstraat-Coppenolstraat crossing and the main space in Sint-Jacobstraat, next to St. James’ Church (university quarter). In addition Callewaert Vanlangendonck is an exhibitor at Art Brussels, one of the most renowned contemporary art fairs in Europe and a must-see in the international art calendar. As a partner of Delen Private Bank, the gallery organizes exhibitions at the bank’s headquarters and lends artworks for fairs such as BRAFA and Interieur Kortrijk, of which Delen Private Bank is the main sponsor.
In addition to organizing retrospectives and group exhibitions, Callewaert Vanlangendonck Gallery manages the artist estate of Guy Vandenbranden (1926-2014). On June 3, 2014, Vandenbranden died in Antwerp and bequeathed his archives to Callewaert Vanlangendonck. The gallery then founded the ‘Estate Guy Vandenbranden’, which manages the artist’s oeuvre and promotes it at home and abroad.
The gallery also works together with the Estate Jan Dries in promoting this G58-sculptor on an international level. Furthermore the gallery has a vast collection of works by Cobra-artist Serge Vandercam, from his lyrical abstract period (1955-1962).
