POP Up's can not be ignored in this fast new world.
But what seems obvious today was not the same 30 years ago!
With Temporary Contemporary we were pioneering in poping up here and there with art.
The story of Moses and the mountain.
For nothing we want to change our heaven on earth in the shadow of the former Scholteshof in Stevoort.
Green, calm, easily accessible, always parking, nice neighbors, but ...
not really the epicenter of the contemporary art world.
That's why we occasionally pop up to surprise people who do not reach us and surprise them with our quality.
the deepest gallery window in town
We present sculptors and are only available by appointment
we started with latest creations by LMG Ploem (november 2023)
During the pandemic, the idea arised to create an object to console.
Artists werre blocked in their studio's, no art shows were possible. People in general had no prospect.
So we asked 30 Belgian artists to create a design for a transatlantic.
We popped up with these wonderfull deck chjairs a.o. in Genk @ Whitelight, in Brussels @ Rivoli building, in Genk @ C-Mine, ...

Sara Bomans drawings decorated the windows of the NMBS building (thanks to Printsalon) and Arne Reynaert's work gave color to the temporary bar in Spijshuis Schoofs and Aichacreafood. Also a project of Comosie and Lutio.
Comosie also joined Genk. Tempola Design revives the Molenstraat and we were allowed to participate.
