Tatjana Pieters

ABOUT THE GALLERY

Tatjana Pieters is an international gallery for contemporary art located in a unique, 400 m2 space in the emerging ‘Bloemekenswijk’ in Ghent. Committed to the accessibility of contemporary art within a social framework, experimentation, the broadening of the mind, and social awareness are the driving forces behind this operation. The gallery brings museum-like exhibitions that combine the promotion of emerging artists with the repositioning of mid-career/established artists that have been overlooked.

Pieters often supports artists at a primary stage, functioning as a catalysator in the growth of their artistic career. With the presentation of Belgian artists like Walter Swennen, Luc Deleu and Philippe Van Snick, Pieters has also participated in promoting the career of respected older artists within a broader international context.

Representing artistic positions that are not easily categorized, the gallery offers an experimental platform that lingers between the independent domain, the institution, and the art market. Tatjana Pieters participates in several fairs each year to promote the gallery artists on the international scene and also supports the artists through the publication of catalogues.

In September 2022, Tatjana Pieters will be opening a second gallery space in Antwerp.

ABOUT TATJANA PIETERS

Tatjana Pieters has been educated as a conservator-restorer of sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and continued to study Art History at the University of Ghent.

Since 2008 Pieters is part of several juries and commissions, amongst others the subsidy commission of the Flemish Community, and the jury for the Flemish Culture Prize and the Belgian Pavillion at the Venice Biennial.

In the last 15 years she has curated more than 100 exhibitions inside and outside of her gallery.

Her dedication to the gallery as a platform for the promotion of progressive, engaged and innovative positions is based on the belief that art can create more awareness and help positive change in a society that desperately needs it. Driven by this commitment, Pieters is also active as a licensed Avatar Master delivering Avatar®, an experiential consciousness training that learns people the skills to live deliberately.
