Together with We are Jane, The Nine and the Anticancer Fund, we are happy to invite you to an evening of culture.
It is a pleasure to be able to co-organise a visit to this art exhibition and highlight the clinical study in neuroblastoma
‘The Art of Fearless Living’ – Charitable Art Experience – is an exhibition of 361 artworks curated by Belgian designer Jean-Philippe Demeyer.
Deweer Gallery Estate is supporting the Anticancer Fund with a unique exhibition of artworks selected by curator Jean-Philippe Demeyer. The interior designer has chosen some intense works of the family Deweer that will be sold to finance a clinical study on neuroblastoma, the very rare cancer that their brave boy Ghislain had to deal with in 2020.
The collection consists of various eminent works in contemporary art, including famous artists like Stephan Balkenhol, Benjamin Moravec, Panamarenko and Koen Vanmechelen.
The family Deweer donates up to half of the selling price of the artworks to the international trial in neuroblastoma and My Cancer Navigator. The family Deweer relied on the Anticancer Fund and its personalised information service My Cancer Navigator when their little boy was confronted with cancer. Ghislain had neuroblastoma, but is now doing well after a long course of treatments.
“Life has its challenges for everyone, ours happened to be childhood cancer. Our little family decided to do anything in our power to help organisations that walk a lot of extra miles in cancer research. To do things in another way, to encourage people to look differently at the beautiful things in life, we were lucky to team up with Jean-Philippe Demeyer. He transformed room 2 at Deweer Gallery into a real Roman Villa and he found a perfect spot for the chosen artworks. So be prepared to see the beauty of art in a different way, in a way of fearless living”, explains Marie Deweer-Verstraete.
We hope to see many of you present this evening.
PS: A visit to the collection of entrepreneur Marc Coucke will also be possible, as this collection is stored at the premises of the Deweer Gallery.
(Monday) 16:00 - 18:00
