Sponsor Request « VOICE AND SOUND WAVES . THE JAPANESE SCENE " [05/12/2018]
« VOICE AND SOUND WAVES . THE JAPANESE SCENE " FROM FEBRUARY 14TH 2019 TO MAY 11TH 2019, at « LE 26 BY « , 26 Rue Saint Georges, 1050 BRUSSELS.


"VOICE AND SOUND WAVES - THE JAPANESE ART SCENE" proposes the first art exhibition in Belgium , focusing on Japanese sound art and examines the relationship between culture and sound.

Felix Frachon Gallery ( Brussels ) gives "carte blanche" to Anne-Laure Chamboisier , an established sound art curator who has been researching about sound art in Japan for the past 4 years.

If the impact of John Cage and the Fluxus movement in Japan made generations of artists engage with the question of noise, contemporary Japanese artists are playing a major part in the interpretation of the listening experience.

The exhibition will present the works of three generations of sound artists whose works are emblematic of the contribution of the Japanese contemporary art scene to sound art and of the diversity of the Japanese contemporary creation, yet to be shared with the European public .

Besides the exhibition , this project is developed equally as a residency which will enable the artists ( who will come from Japan to Belgium specifically for this exhibition ) to research
and meet other artists and professionals , promote their works through a program of conferences , performances , master - classes ( Including in Gent at KASK Conservatorium) in order to trigger future collaborations.

With respect to the nature and high quality of this exhibition ,the JAPAN FOUNDATION granted a financial contribution for its organization.

2- "Le 26 by" - Project space Brussels :

is an independent cultural platform created by FELIX FRACHON GALLERY , a gallery established in Brussels, in 2016, by art collector Félix Frachon, engaged in introducing
emerging scenes of young contemporary artists in Europe .

The gallery‘s project is the manifesto of a challenging multidisciplinary vision mirrored in original curated seasons, including during the BRUSSELS ART FAIR in 2018.

Félix Frachon dedicated an entire traditional Belgian house located in one of the most prominent gallery neighborhoods in Brussels, to create a platform of international scale for collaborative projects.

"Le 26 by" is a unique space that invites major art and cultural players to engage and initiate dialogues and exchanges between cultures and art practices, as well as to broaden their audiences of "aficianodos" to the general public.


The exhibition will be a conspicuous opportunity to highlight Japanese state of the art creativity to a broad spectrum of visitors :

- Major international collectors , curators of European museums and Executives of cultural Institutions as well as the general public.

- CEO’s and Senior Executives of Japanese , International and Belgian Corporations based in Belgium and other European countries .

- Key opinion leaders , scholars , journalists .


Several VIP events will be organized during this three months long exhibition .

In this respect , specific , tailor -made VIP events could be organized , on a mutually beneficial basis , including via a sponsorship partnerships .

Indeed , we are convinced that this high quality exhibition in Brussels will constitute an ideal opportunity, potentially interested, to invite their main clients , partners and obviously their staffs to a VIP event in the framework of this exhibition .

Hereunder a - non exhaustive list - of VIP events potentially interesting :

• PRIVATE PREVIEW FOR VIP: Exhibition guided tour by the Curator, Anne-Laure Chamboisier, with the presence of the artists Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th February 2019 .
