How To Be A Successful Exhibiter,
A Basic Guide

Press Info:
It is not really strange that you become fascinated by paintings if you grow up surrounded by them. While his older brother successfully completed an education at both the Academy of Arts and the Higher Institute in Antwerp, Roby discovered already after a short time at that same Academy that not creating art but presenting it enthralled him.
He learned the trade by practicing - in all its facets. He worked as an attendant at the Municipal Museum in Amsterdam, as a public relations staff member at the ICC in Antwerp and as a guide at the 't Hoogt in Utrecht. He built exhibitions for inter alia the Netherlands Institute in Paris, France, and the Museum for Contemporary Art in Bologna, Italy, advised the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, and traveled from Sweden to Taiwan with exhibitions, lectures and workshops. He gave lectures and ran workshops for Hoge School in Amsterdam, the universities of Amsterdam and Madrid and the Academies of Arts of The Hague and Groningen. He wrote about exhibitions in the newspaper "Dagblad De Stem," in the Museumkr@nt, in Origine and other periodicals.
Recently, he acted as a guest exhibiter in Iraq, on invitation by the ministry. Currently, he collaborates with the Fine Arts Museums of Hâ Nội and Hồ Chí Minh.

It is characteristic for Bellemans that he not just builds "normal" exhibitions. He was and is continually trying to broaden the market. He started with exhibitions aboard the Breskens-Vlissingen ferry boats, conceived the Children's Art Library and experimented for years with all kinds of exhibition forms. National media, such as the VPRO, made programs about his experimental way of working. That way of working also brought him the first Zeeland Culture Award.

In the course of the years, many things went wrong too. You, the reader, may learn from the mistakes of others. That is why this Handbook came into being. It is a collection of things learned over the years. Not everyone will think about certain issues in the same way, but knowledge becomes verifiable and transferable once it has been committed to paper. Hence, comments and criticism are always welcome.

Among his earlier publications are "Illustrating Books for Children as a Profession" and "Education(+) projects, Theory and Practice "
