Founded in 2011, Modern Shapes Gallery is specialised in unique contemporary and modern sculptural art with an emphasis on ceramics. It is as much a gallery as it is a curated platform. It presents several exhibitions a year, dedicated to both rising and established talent. And it presents a very personal and balanced selection of objects, often balancing on the dividing line between design, art and architecture. Founder Michaël Francken’s personal taste and quirky passion results in a program that combines both high quality 20th century masters and more contemporary artists working on the balance between abstract, sculptural and architectural work. All bearing witness to craftsmanship and sculptural presence. As a result, Modern Shapes is a progressive and supportive space for emerging and established artists and their objects.
