De Hallen Haarlem kicked off 2016 with a solo exhibition by Belgian artist Philippe Van Snick (Ghent, 1946). The exhibition spans almost five decades, and traces developments in this artist’s highly consistent body of work, best known for its postminimalist painting. Van Snick’s systematic approach to abstraction both offers fresh perspectives on recent developments in painting, and on a more fundamental level connects to the algorithmic interests of the post-digital generation.
