The New Age of Humanism -Spazio Nobile – Brussels

The New Age of Humanism celebrates the 5 years of the Spazio Nobile gallery and a decade of TLmag_True Living of Art & Design magazine dedicated to this theme in spring-summer 2020 (guest editors: Formafantasma). This collective exhibition – under the sign of authenticity and both human and organic presence – brings together more than thirty artists, designers and photographers represented by the gallery since its creation in 2016. In the atmosphere of an apartment to live in a 1920’s house in Ixelles, with its beautiful marble fireplaces and year-round green garden, Spazio Nobile imprints its philosophy of living with art and design in these spaces of the bel étage (piano nobile) and his studiolo (cabinet of curiosities) spread throughout seven rooms and the garden of the gallery.

Combining precious sculptural furniture, handmade objects and art photography signed by contemporary artists with whom the gallery actively collaborates, the gallery has opted to strengthen its physical presence in Brussels and to get even closer to its art lovers and collectors. By privileging the quality and nobility of the materials, the beauty and the singularity of its artistic choices, Spazio Nobile creates a sensory and singular path. The New Age of Humanism is a journey that is both experiential and holistic, physical and esoteric, terrestrial and cosmic.

Opening in the lively and cosmopolitan district of the Place Brugmann in Brussels, Lise Coirier and Gian Giuseppe Simeone have united their passions for creation and art history by taking the path of creating a dialogue between contemporary applied arts, design and photography. Without putting any boundaries between the disciplines, visual arts intertwin with fine arts. By giving impetus to the creation of unique pieces, limited editions and installations that are both experimental and artistic, with a particular sensitivity to everything that touches nature and minerality, the gallery has committed itself over the last five years to developing its own philosophy and narrative. Spazio Nobile represents a generation of emerging and internationally renowned artists, designers and photographers, while at the same time bringing the cultures of East and West to the forefront in a dialogue rich in natural and innovative materials.
