Dan van Severen (1927-2009)

Dan van Severen

Not much info i can find on van Severen. Just a short biography, but that doe not mean that van Severen is not impoprtant. I think he is and if ever i have the opportunity to buy a work for our collection i will not hesitate to do so.

Dan van Severen’s first verified exhibition was documenta 4 at Documenta in Kassel in 1968, and the most recent exhibition was Trance-Action – A meditative stroll through the collection – from Baloji to Van Severen at Mu.ZEE in Oostende in 2020. Dan van Severen is most frequently exhibited in Belgium, but also had exhibitions in Germany, France and elsewhere. Severen has at least 7 solo shows and 39 group shows over the last 52 years (for more information, see biography). Severen has also been in no less than 7 art fairs and in 3 biennials. A notable show was 35. Biennale Internazionale d’Arte 1970 at La Biennale di Venezia Settore Arte in Venice in 1970. Other notable shows were at Documenta in Kassel and Museum voor Hedendaagse Kunst Antwerpen (MuHKA) in Antwerp. Dan van Severen has been exhibited with Karel Dierickx and Marthe Wéry. Dan van Severen’s art is in at least 7 museum collections, at Museum voor Hedendaagse Kunst Antwerpen (MuHKA) in Antwerp and Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst (S.M.A.K.) in Ghent among others. has some nice titles on van Severen available.
