    American Rust
    by Philipp Meyer (U.S.A.)

Then, on the very day of his leaving, something happens that changes the two friends' fates and loyalties to each other, their family and the town itself.

    Venue: Geneviève's place in 1160 Brussels (Auderghem), Avenue des Nénuphars 11 (ground floor). Tel. 02/660.57.65.

    A Guided Visit to the
    Chagall Retrospective


    Join us on Saturday, April 18, for a guided visit of the Marc Chagall Retrospective. Over 200 works of Marc Chagall have been gathered worldwide for this major retrospective exhibition. From early paintings of 1908 to his final, monumental works of the 1980s, the show offers a rich overview of the painter’s artistic career.

    The exhibition presents the main themes of his work, in particular his connection with Jewish culture, the iconography of the Jewish village, and folk traditions. It also covers his discovery of 17th century literature –such as La Fontaine– the revelation of light, and the particular use of color.

    Special attention is given to his Russian period at a time his personal style stands out in an avant-garde art scene featured by the cubist revolution. The original poetic language of Chagall is faithfully revived and visitors are immersed in his amazing artistic world influenced by different cultures and traditions.

    This show brings together artworks from over twenty international institutions: Tate, MoMA New York, Centre Pompidou, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Beyeler Foundation, Maeght Foundation, Nagoya City Art Museum Japan, the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, etc.

    Our guide will once again be the excellent Lieve De Jonghe.

    A Wine-Tasting Seminar


     
    Join us on Thursday, April 30, for a very special event: a wine-tasting seminar given by Mr. & Mrs. Daniel Lidby. Both of the Lidbys are trained enologists with degrees from Bordeaux and Toulouse and have twenty years of experience in the field. This is a joint event with the American Women’s Club of Brussels and it will be held in their beautiful club-house in Rhode-St-Genèse.
     
    During the course of the 3-hour seminar, you will learn how to taste wine and to appreciate it at its best. This seminar is open to anyone interested in wine – no previous knowledge is necessary. During the seminar, the Lidbys will discuss various attributes of wine, such as the color, aromas, and the taste.
     
    Over the course of the evening, you will have the opportunity to taste 6-8 different wines and to nibble on cheese and/or ham depending on the wines to be tasted, and bread. The Lidbys do not sell any wines, but can, if you like, provide advice.
     
    Please note that this seminar is limited to 24 people.
     
    We look forward to seeing you at this unique event!
