Atelier Jespers

Art & culture

In 1928, one of Belgium's leading modernist architects, Victor Bourgeois, was asked to build a home and studio for a fellow artist-sculptor, Oscar Jespers. Attracting the likes of Kandinsky and Klee, the white modernist building located in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert rapidly became a meeting point for the European avant-garde. While Jespers used his venue to invite collectors to admire his work, the present inhabitant, Jean-Fran├žois Declercq decided to reinstate its original function of housing exhibitions, after serving different functions for its past owners. 

In september 2015, with the help and works of young artists Gerard Kuijpers and Ben Storms, the venue was inaugurated. A past exhibition focusing on visual art, has recently shown the works of Oscar Jespers himself.
