7 Nov 2008-15 Feb 2009. This exhbition at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts celebrates the 60th anniversary of the founding of the breakaway CoBrA art movement in Paris in 1948, when six dissident artists from Copenhagen (Asger Jorn), Brussels (Joseph Noiret and Christian Dotremont) and Amsterdam (Constant Nieuwenhuis, Corneille Beverloo and Karel Appel) signed a manifesto distancing themselves from the French Surrealists during a major international conference on avant-garde art. From its small beginnings, CoBrA grew to number around 50 painters, poets, architects, ethnologists and theorists from ten countries. Charcterized by its direct, spontaneous style and fantastical imagery, CoBrA art came to be associated with the early Situationist movement before disbanding in 1951. Admission
