Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst (Museum of Contemporary Art)

The Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst (Museum of Contemporary Art) featured the work of Jimmie Durham with the exhibition A Matter of Life and Death and Singing. Jimmie Durham is an American artist, essayist, performer, and poet. I think because of his background as an essayist and poet, I really enjoyed viewing his work.  The pieces are thoughtful, reflective, and usually have a bit of humor thrown in.  If you are in Antwerp, I really recommend this exhibition!

The quotes that are captioning the photos of his work are taken from M HKA’s other website ensembles.org.
