“Un Voyage en Mer” is an exhibition to celebrate the seventh anniversary of  Charles Riva Collection. Belgian works of art, drawn from private and public collections, will be exhibited for the first time at an ordinary gallery dedicated to American art. Thus, “Un Voyage en Mer” brings together works by Belgian artists from various eras and with diverse sensibilities, built on an inexhaustible theme: the sea.

The coastline is used to gather works from different periods and sensitivities. The exhibition is therefore composed as an anthology.  Rather than getting lost in a vast historical or thematic panorama, it anticipates unexpected but fruitful confrontations.
