    Welcome to New Art Club, a podcast series by Subbacultcha, in which you get to know young creatives, while they explore an exhibition by an established artist.

    In this episode, we’ve invited visual artist Rebbecca Jane Arthur to S.M.A.K. in Ghent. She visits the exhibition ‘Why are you angry’, by various artists from the museum's collection.

    She tells us about her travels, which eventually led her to Belgium and the challenges in making personal art that tries to capture a memory.

    New Art Club — Shirley Villavicencio x Anna Boghiguian

    New Art Club — Shirley Villavicencio x Anna Boghiguian

    Welcome to New Art Club, a podcast series brought to you by Subbacultcha in which you get to know young creatives while they explore the work of another artist in an exhibition on show. The first episodes take you through several exhibitions at S.M.A.K, free to visit with your Subbacultcha membership. For more info go to subbacultcha.be. 

    In the first episode, we set the ball rolling with painter Shirley Villavicencio Pizango, wandering through the exhibition by Armenian artist Anna Boghiguian. Shirley is a Ghent-based artist with Peruvian roots. The crossover between her South-American heritage and her life in Belgium is one of the main features defining her work. Villavicencio paints her portraits at a whirling pace thanks to the use of acrylic paint. The artist rejects conventional perspective and uses vivid colours, often inspired by other cultures. By using the painterly process, she creates an intimate dialogue with her subjects. On a second level, Villavicencio’s paintings contain a subtle political message. In this way she takes a stand against conventional exoticism, something present throughout Western art history. We listen to Shirleys highlights of the exhibition at S.M.A.K. and get to know more about her non-belief of becoming an artist, her memories of her homeland Peru, and her daily life as an artist.

    Discover Undercover — Are we human, or are we dancer?

    Discover Undercover — Are we human, or are we dancer?

    Subbacultcha Belgium and OLT Rivierenhof are teaming up through an exclusive podcast: Discover Undercover in order to promote the first OLTCLUB series, who were supposed to take place in March 2020.

    As complicated as the 21st century may seem sometimes, what I do like about it is that it gave us tools to express ourselves and raise our voices. And while big artists have preceded them, an entire movement of artists and makers are claiming their true selves. It is very interesting to see the work that results from that. From concepts such as identity, diversity and gender and queer equality.

    And so we’re meeting up with two rockstars in the scene: Jaouad Alloul and Nyiragasigwa Hens. They know each other, started vzw BeHuman together and made wonderful events such as “People of Colour Pride” happen. They both offer a strong sense of self. They are not afraid, so I’m guessing it’ll be an interesting conversation.
