Tatjana Pieters

Nieuwevaart 124, 9000 Gent, Belgium

Tatjana Pieters runs the eponymous gallery in Ghent and is known for discovering unconventional and emerging talent. She has been educated as a conservator-restorer of sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and continued to study Art History at the University of Ghent. With the presentation of Belgian artists like Walter Swennen, Luc Deleu and Philippe Van Snick Pieters has also proven to promote the careers of respected older artists within a broader international context.

Since 2008 Pieters is part of several juries and commissions, amongst others the subsidy commission of the Flemish Community, and the jury for the Flemish Culture Prize and the Belgian Pavillion at the Venice Biennial.

Since 2004 she has curated more than 100 exhibitions inside and outside of her gallery. In 2020 she will be the curator of the young Belgian Art & Design Fair. Her dedication to the gallery as a platform for the promotion of progressive, engaged and innovative positions is based on the belief that art can create more awareness and help positive change in a society that desperately needs it.
