Exhibiting a comprehensive survey of the artist’s work, the show includes a series of wall paintings as well as a new body of work, 'The Arena'.
The exhibition is curated by Lynne Cooke, Senior Curator of Special Projects in Modern Art at the National Gallery of Art Washington, and is on display until January 2016.

Luc Tuymans

Luc Tuymans is often referred to as one of Europe's most influential painters. The Belgian artist, a leader amongst a new generation of figurative painters, is widely credited with having contributed to the revival of the painting in the 1990s.
His use of photographic source material is a basis for his signature figurative paintings, which transform mediated film, television, and print sources into examinations of history and memory.
Tuymans' takes his subjects from major historical events and everyday objects, though his approach to all images is analytical.
His work has been presented as the focus of several retrospectives, including at the Tate Modern, 2004, the Wexner Center for the Arts, 2009, and BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels in 2011 and Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga, Spain (2011).

Spanning some thirty years Luc Tuymans’ exhibition, “Intolerance,” speaks to certain abiding preoccupations the Belgian painter has long mined in counterpoint with a rapidly changing world
