Invitation Round table & Book presentation 8 September 2017

Within the framework of the exhibition 'Tshela Tendu & Vincent Meessen, Patterns for (Re)cognition'


On the occasion of the exhibition "Tshela tendu & Vincent Meessen, Patterns for (Re)cognition" at the Centre for Fine Arts Brussels, a book has been published.


This publication documents the three editions of "Patterns for Re(cognition)", an exhibition conceived by Vincent Meessen and built around the abstract works that the Congolese artist, Tshela tendu – better known until now under the name of Djilatendo – painted in the period between 1929 and 1932. Their presentation is discussed in a series of dialogues that Vincent Meessen conducts with the curator Elena Filipovic, the publisher Guy Jungblut, the artist Toma Muteba Luntumbue, the historian and anthropologist Jan Vansina, and the art historian Yasmine Van Pee.


The presentation of the publication will be preceded by a round table in which researcher-curator Morad Montazami will discuss the themes broached in the exhibition and publication with Vincent Meessen, Toma Muteba Luntumbue, Yasmine Van Pee, researcher-curator Bambi Ceuppens and art historian Kathrin Langenohl.
