The history of the Belgian VanhaerentsArtCollection began in the 1970s, when a young Walter Vanhaerents laid the foundation of his now famous collection with works by Andy Warhol. Much has happened since then, but the focus on new and provocative art, often considered radical at the time, remained. From Bruce Nauman, Yoshitomo Nara, and Bill Viola to Cindy Sherman, Jeff Koons, Katharina Fritsch, or Tom Sachs—across different genres and media, the Brussel-based collection reflects a keen sense of the latest developments in current art practices as well as a prescient intuition for emerging artists. The publication Looking Ahead celebrates the 50th anniversary of this unique collection and provides an overview of the exhibitions of the past 15 years.
