Callewaert Vanlangendonck Gallery, founded in 2012 in Antwerp, Belgium, displays lyrical and geometrically abstract artists from the following groups: Cobra, Art Abstrait, Art Construit, Formes, G58, the New Flemish School and the ZERO movement.
Gallery owners Brecht Callewaert and Yoeri Vanlangendonck emphasize the importance and the contemporary character of the Belgian artists of the 1950s and 1960s. It shows how timeless, universal and cross-border this avant-garde art still is.
In addition to organizing retrospectives and group exhibitions, Callewaert Vanlangendonck Gallery publishes art books on its represented artists and manages the artist estate of Guy Vandenbranden (1926-2014), one of the most important Belgian constructivist artists. Guy Vandenbranden bequeathed his archives to Callewaert Vanlangendonck. The gallery then founded the ‘Estate Guy Vandenbranden’, which manages the artist’s oeuvre and promotes it at home and abroad. The gallery also works together with the Estate Jan Dries in promoting this G58-sculptor on an international level. Furthermore, the gallery has a vast collection of works by Cobra-artist Serge Vandercam, from his lyrical abstract period (1955-1962).
