The exhibition ‘Today Is The First Day’ by Wolfgang Tillmans goes on show at the WIELS Contemporary Art Centre on February 1, continuing until May 24, 2020.
With ‘Today is the First Day’, the WIELS Contemporary Art Centre in Brussels presents the first solo exhibition of Wolfgang Tillmans’ work in Belgium. Born in Remscheid in 1968, the German photographer ranks among the most influential and talked-about artists of his generation. He first became known in the early nineties for his groundbreaking portraits of young people in his immediate social circle. His keenly observed images also sharpen the viewer’s perception of reality: “My images are designed to express my thoughts about the world,” the photographer explains. In the year 2000, Tillmans was the first non-British artist to be honoured with the prestigious Turner Prize.
‘Today is the First Day’ was curated by Devrim Bayar and Dirk Snauwaert, who conceptualised the presentation specifically for the WIELS exhibition space. Spanning two floors, the selection includes several series that have never been shown before.
The opening takes place on January 31st, 2020 from 6 to 10 pm.
