The artist is at the heart of all S.M.A.K.’s activities. Consequently, an important part of the collection policy focuses on putting together ensembles. Rather than representing an artist by just one work, S.M.A.K. aims to collect an oeuvre in-depth and so understand it in all its complexity. In ENSEMBLEMATIC, S.M.A.K. presents several of its most notable ensembles.
‘A collection is more permanent and slow-moving, while the ‘exhibition spirit’ with its high-profile shows puts the museum into a higher gear. Exhibitions capture the spirit of the times and are a part of it. At S.M.A.K., collecting and exhibiting go hand in hand and this makes us unique.’, says Philippe Van Cauteren, artistic director of S.M.A.K.
