BELLEVUE SHOW OPENING April 6th at Bongout

Bongoût Gallery is happy to present Bellevue, a group exhibition surveying the rich territory of the new republic of Bellevue, an independent artist-run agency that represents contemporary talents in avant-garde illustration. Bellevue was founded in 2010 by artists and illustrators Jakob Hinrichs, Christian Gfeller, Anna Hellsgård & Katia Fouquet.

The works of the 12 artists presented in the exhibition, at home on the very space between fine art and illustration, playfully hijack the conventional definitions of these terms and demonstrate the fluidity of assumed boundaries. Bellevue artists come from many different backgrounds, such as graphic design, painting, graphic art &abstract art, yet they all have in common a striving to expand the field of illustration, stretch the rules, breathe some fresh air and visual excitement onto printed matter and show that illustration can be avant-garde.

Bellevue is part of the Pictoplasma exhibition programme (festival of contemporary character design&art, April 6th-10th). To celebrate the Pictoplasma festival the gallery will be open on Sunday April 10th.
