This spring BOZAR is giving pride of place to Pol Bury and Yves Klein, two major figures associated with the ZERO art movement. Their investigations into time, space and movement had a strong influence on the development of the arts in Europe after the Second World War.

Pol Bury (1922–2005), one of the most important Belgian post-war artists, is the subject of a major retrospective that looks at his varied production, from the surrealist-influenced paintings of his early years to the kinetic sculptures and fountains that brought him worldwide acclaim. His innovative work remains surprisingly contemporary. An artist to (re)discover!

At the same time BOZAR is presenting an exhibition of works by the French artist Yves Klein (1928-1962), in cooperation with Tate Liverpool. An artist best known for his use of a deep blue pigment that came to bear his name: International Klein Blue (IKB). Yves Klein. Theatre of the Void takes the visitor on a journey through some 30 works from Klein's principal series together with a selection of seldom seen films and photos to provide a broad vision of the exceptional creativity of this influential artist. His short but spectacular career rocked the very foundations of the European art world. A programme of performances is an inherent part of this exhibition project.

The revamped BelgianArtPrize brings yet more contempory art. The four finalists Edith Dekyndt, Simona Denicolai & Ivo Provoost, Otobong Nkanga and Maarten Vanden Eynde will be presenting their work at the Centre for Fine Arts with the winner announced on April 19, 2017.
