    Retrospective catalog that compiles six years of activities, more than 30 billboards presented in Brussels’ streets, and many collaborations with great artists.

    The typography uses the same fonts as deployed on the Rectangle website: DIN Condensed and Happy Times at the IKOB. The caption underneath the cartoon on the book cover is set in Adobe Caslon.

    Rectangle is a Brussels-based and non-profit artist-run space founded in 2012. We have developed a particular interest in advertising and its apparatus. Our purpose is to challenge both its visual language and its proliferation in public and private spaces.

    Through more than 30 exhibitions, Rectangle has had numerous and unique collaborations with emerging and more established artists, curators, other artist-run spaces, art schools, galleries, and collectors, with the will to keep on stimulating interactions with a variety of field and medium.

    Since 2017, Rectangle took a new turn starting a journey with an itinerant, modular and ephemeral format, enabling geographical adventures and a more complex form of existence.

    Artists in the catalog: Cédric Alby, Sookoon Ang, Melanie Bonajo, Ludovic Beillard, Martin Belou, Jesús Alberto Benítez, Nicolas Bourthoumieux, Jérémie Boyard, Jean-Alain Corre, Victor Delestre, Christophe de Rohan Chabot, Philippe Durand, Fresh White, Julien Goniche, Coraline Guilbeau, Pablo Helguera, Romain Juan, Matthias Kessler, Nicholas Knight, Rémi Lambert, Pierre La Police, Pierre-Pol Lecouturier, Magali Lefebvre, Jacqueline Mesmaeker, Chris Martin, John Murphy, Vincent Olinet, Guillaume Petranto, Benoît Platéus, Yoel Pytowski, Francis Raynaud, Peter Scott, Filip Van Dingenen.
