For the start of the new season and during the Brussels Art Days, NICC will feature a brand new project in the 

‘Let the Artists Die (If They Want To)’ is the provocative title of the conceptual project developed by Triple Candie for the NICC vitrine. Triple Candie is founded by art historians Shelly Bancroft and Peter Nesbett in 2001, and describes itself as an independent curatorial agency exploring the critical potential of exhibition making. 

Bruce High Quality Foundation is a New York based collective founded in 2001 by alumni from Cooper Union. Concurrently with the opening of their show ‘Vive la sociale!’ at Almine Rech gallery in Brussels, the talk will deal with several underlying topics including the Bruce High Quality University and the influential Belgian painter James Ensor. 

Daniel Dewar will speak, as one half of the artist duo Dewar & Gicquel, about their current show at Musée Rodin titled ‘La Jeune Sculpture’, their views on ceramics and other ongoing projects. Dewar & Gicquel have been working together since 1997 and were awarded the Prix Marcel Duchamp in 2012. Their work will also be on show at Galerie Micheline Szwajcer (Brussels) in October of this year.
