Over TATJANA PIETERS
Tatjana Pieters runs the eponymous gallery in Ghent and is known for discovering unconventional and emerging talent. She has been educated as a conservator-restorer of sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and continued to study Art History at the University of Ghent. With the presentation of Belgian artists like Walter Swennen, Luc Deleu and Philippe Van Snick Pieters has also proven to promote the careers of respected older artists within a broader international context.
Since 2008 Pieters is part of several juries and commissions, amongst others the subsidy commission of the Flemish Community, and the jury for the Flemish Culture Prize and the Belgian Pavillion at the Venice Biennial.
Since 2004 she has curated more than 100 exhibitions inside and outside of her gallery.
In 2020 Pieters is also the curator for the art section of the Belgian Art & Design Fair due to take place in 2021.
Her dedication to the gallery as a platform for the promotion of progressive, engaged and innovative positions is based on the belief that art can create more awareness and help positive change in a society that desperately needs it. Driven by this commitment, Pieters is also active as a licensed Avatar Master delivering Avatar®, an experiential consciousness training that learns people the skills to live deliberately.
