"Give eighteen contemporary artists free rein to exhibit in one place, and you immediately have a cacophony of hundreds of movements, influences and artistic expressions that fundamentally contradict each other. There is an appropriate term for this: an oxymoron. Despite the diversity and contradictions between the various artists, a form of unity was present. If only because they were brought together in this special place, which suggests closeness, connection. A non-existent but very real connection between them. The title was quickly found: (PR)OXYMORON." - Frederic De Meyer, TheArtCouch
This catalogue was created to present the artworks and the artists in a unique way. The catalogue contains two parts, the first part contains info about the exhibition and artists and it's printed on a 100% recycled off-white paper with red Pantone ink. The second part shows selected artworks of the artists and is printed in full colour on a glossy bright white paper. It has a striking cover with a combination of red Pantone ink combined with UV spot-varnish. The books were bound using an open spine binding to ensure an open lay-flat experience.
(PR)OXYMORON was brought together by 'Het Initiatief', a collaboration between art lovers Frans Penne, Yves Vanpevenaege, Alain V. and Johan Van Tittelboom and artist Joëlle Dubois.
