The Belgian Prime Minister Yves Leterme Opened an Exhibition of Belgian Classicists at CIBANK’s Gallery

The exhibition «IN TIMES OF CHANGES: Modern Art in Belgium 1880 – 1950» is part of  КВС’s collection and is organized by the Group’s two companies in Bulgaria – CIBANK and DZI - along with the Belgian Embassy in Bulgaria under the Belgian Presidency of the European Union.

On this occasion the Belgian Prime Minister, Yves Leterme, arrived in Bulgaria for a short visit and officially opened the exhibition at CIBANK’s Zeniths Gallery, together with the Bulgarian Minister of Culture Vezhdi Rashidov, the CEO of KBC Group, Jan Vanhevel, and Tsvetelina Borislavova, Chairman of the CIBANK’s Supervisory Board.

The Belgian Prime Minister congratulated the sponsors of this project and said that despite his short stay, his time in Sofia has been interesting not only in terms of political and economical events but also in cultural ones. « We are very happy that the best bank in Belgium - KBC - through its two companies in Bulgaria, has organized and presented this exhibition of the best Belgian artists”, added Yves Leterme.

Jan Vanhevel, CEO of КВС, thanked the Belgian Ambassador in Bulgaria – his Excellency Mark Mihelsen - for his active role in this project and his support for the Belgian business in our country.  He once again emphasized that Bulgaria is one of the main markets for the KBC Group, which always strives to meet local needs and to be close to its clients and this exhibition is a tribute to this policy.

The Minister of Culture - Vezhdi Rashidov - commented on the uniqueness of the Zeniths Gallery as the only gallery of a bank in our country and personally congratulated the organizers and especially Tsvetelina Borislavova for the opportunity these masterpieces of European Art to be shown in Bulgaria. She in turn took the initiative to organize an exhibition to acquaint the Belgian public with works of Bulgarian Art. «I am not an Art critic, but as a connoisseur I think that more than anything it is Art that can bring nations together and help them to develop. It is the shortest bridge between different cultures”, she added. 

The exhibition presents masterpieces of prominent Belgian artists from the early 20th Century, such as James Ensor, Félicien Rops, Gustave Van de Woestijne, Rik Wouters, Léon Spilliaert, Constant Permeke and René Magritte and other representatives of one of the most important periods in Belgian Art.
