La Maison de l’Image is a young cultural place founded by the photographer Marc Barbay.
It has found the ideal setting in an old clouterie jettoise with an ivy-covered facade.
Its first years were devoted to photographic projects with local roots and focused on the participation of its professional and amateur members, gathered in ASBL.
Recent evolutions allow it to revise its ambitions upwards, in parallel with the continuity of its members’ photographic activities.
Its exhibition space has recently doubled, making larger projects possible.
A multidisciplinary group of artists has also come to reinforce the original team of LaMI, in terms of animation and programming.
Among them are Fabrice Murgia (author, director, actor and former director of the National Theatre), Patrick Codenys (audio artist, teacher, member of Front 242) Jacques Vandenheede (illustrator, director of the Académie d’Ixelles) and Arnaud Ghys (photographer, author of Cafés Latents and Portraits in Jazz).
After an exhibition of the great Malian photographer Malick Sidibé, a workshop with artist and filmmaker Carlos Casas, LaMI’s eclectic program will include an interview with Belgian photographer Marc Trivier, a dive into Mothmeister’s macabre carnival, a cycle of rare documentaries and musical showcases.
Open to all, therefore to you too (young people, students, amateurs, professionals, teachers, seniors…) in order of contribution (student, unemployed, VIPO reductions), access to activities.
