The gallery was founded by Patrick De Brock in 1991 and currently occupies two spaces in the Belgian coastal city of Knokke. Thanks to its geographical location, Knokke enjoys an energetic flow of both national and international visitors from France, Germany, Luxembourg and The Netherlands. The aim is to promote established contemporary art in Belgium, with a focus on abstract painting. Over the past three decades, the programme has been developing around a group of internationally renowned artists, including Alan Charlton, Günther Förg, Bernard Frize, Imi Knoebel, Jason Martin, Julian Opie, Dan Walsh, Terry Winters and Heimo Zobernig. In doing so, the gallery has slowly but surely cemented its position as one of the key players in Belgium’s contemporary art scene. In 2017, the gallery was joined by Patrick’s son, Bertram, turning the operation into a family affair. Since, a number of promising, emerging artists were added to the gallery’s roster, namely Ethan Cook, Beth Letain and Landon Metz. The gallery is looking forward to continuing this pursuit in the decades to come and to keep on introducing new positions and practices we find worth showing.
