3 extraordinary exhibitions: 50th anniversary of the Musée Horta (Saint-Gilles)

From 15/03/2019 to 30/06/2019 - CPI : 13/03/2019

For its triple anniversary - 100 years since the sale of the Horta House by Horta himself, 50 years of the opening of the museum, 30 years of its restauration – the Horta Museum (Saint-Gilles) reveals three extraordinary exhibitions that focus on a rather unknown aspect of the architect: Victor Horta as a collector. The three exhibitions happen simultaneously from March 15 until June 30, 2019 in the three buildings of the museum, which has never been done before: the Horta house, the studio and the extension. The exhibition, which deals with the notion of the collection, sheds a different light on each of the three museum spaces. In the extension (which has been recently added to the museum) one can discover art works from private collections in a “mise en abyme” by the artist Elisabeth Horth. In Victor Horta’s studio, a particular collection is united by the young Brussels collector Jonathan Mangelinckx, with important works by Serrurier-Bovy, Paul Hankar and other adherents of Art nouveau. The setting of the veranda and the music room have been reconstituted like it used to be with oriental objects Victor Horta used to collect. Something never done before!
