Set up by a Belgian art lover and supported by Belgian and international collections, MUDIA unites many important art works from big names from the renaissance until now, with artists like Veronese, Brueghel, Rodin, Spilliaert, Van Dongen, Wouters, Picasso, Modigliani, Giacometti, Magritte, Hergé, Franquin, Geluck, etc. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, comic books, photographs, film,… are united in a playful, digital and high-tech trajectory, in several chapters that invite the public to participate while giving him/ her the opportunity to learn and understand art history and its evolution in a playful way. An animation film explaining art history and its various currents has been specially produced for MUDIA and is proposed to visitors and children. Around forty games, animated tableaux, videos or amusing tests also animate the visit that takes place over twenty rooms and covers seven centuries of art history. MUDIA is located in the heart of the village Redu, that is already known as the Village of Books, in an old parsonage entirely renovated by an architectural firm from the region.

  • MUSEUM OF MARIEMONT - http://www.musee-mariemont.be
    Nouvelle direction au Musée Royal de Mariemont
    Succédant à Marie-Cécile Bruwier, directrice scientifique du Musée depuis 2005, Richard Veymiers prend la tête de l’Établissement scientifique et pose son regard de chercheur et d’enseignant sur le Musée; un regard résolument international, interculturel, pédagogique et sociétal. Accroître la visibilité, l’engagement didactique et l’impact culturel sont ses axes de valorisation institutionnelle qui visent à positionner Mariemont au rang de grand musée européen.À la suite d’un parcours professionnel qui l’a amené de maintes fois à l’étranger, au sein de diverses cultures scientifiques et muséales, Richard Veymiers a choisi de revenir dans sa région et de s’investir dans sa vie culturelle de manière durable, sur le long terme. Le choix de poser sa candidature au Musée royal de Mariemont vient tant de son attachement pour les collections, qu’il qualifie de ponts entre les cultures, que de sa connaissance du terrain. Richard Veymiers est en effet un habitué des salles du Musée, ayant participé par exemple au comité scientifique de l’exposition « Mémoires d’Orient. Du Hainaut à Héliopolis » en 2010 ou à celui de l’exposition « Dieux, Génies et Démons en Égypte Ancienne » en 2016 ou ayant coédité certaines publications autour des thèmes qui lui sont chers : les sociétés antiques - égyptiennes, grecques et romaines en particulier -, le polythéisme et ses manifestations matérielles, ou encore la biographie culturelle des objets.

    26/05/2018 > 02/12/2018 - In the time of Galen - A Greek doctor in the Roman Empire
    By following the life of the Greek doctor Galen of Pergamon (129- 216), this exhibition describes the medical, pharmacologic and sanitary practices in the Roman world of the first centuries of our epoch. Because Galen was the child of his times. His writings, his varied interests and his contact with his clients offer a lot of material and help us to a better understanding of the geographic and sociologic trajectory around the Mediterranean Sea during Pax Romana. Twenty years after the successful exhibition “At the time of Hippocrates. Medicine and society in ancient Greece” in Mariemont, the current exhibition “At the time of Galen” emphasises the therapeutic and anatomic revolution, but also the system of the four humours during the seven centuries that separate Hippocrates, « the father of medicine » and Galen « the prince of medicine ». The reflection around the work of Galen, his domain of study and legacy, offers the opportunity to appreciate his input and role, not only during his life but also during the history of science and our present state. The exhibition consists of important works from Belgian and foreign museums. For the occasion, a catalogue is edited that is richly illustrated and written by the best specialists in this field.

    06/06/2018 > 04/11/2018 - Exhibition - Design Generations, Intersections 5
    Design Generations is an exhibition presented in collaboration with Wallonie-Bruxelles Design-Mode (WBDM) within the framework of Intersections, the ADAM’s biennial contemporary design event. It invites visitors to take a fresh look at design by demonstrating the profound value of this profession, which has witnessed and often advocated changes in our society over the last century. Ten design companies based in Wallonia and Brussels explain their approach through a selection of products, some from the past (permanently held in the Museum), some from the present (taken from their current collections) and some from the future (imaginary objects). Through its multi-sensory approach, which reveals spatio-temporal links and intersections, the exhibition offers a true experience of the world of design, improving our understanding of the lives of the objects that surround us and of their intelligence, both retroactive and prospective. They are the interfaces of our everyday lives, custodians of the precious legacies of the past, agents of social and aesthetic experiences, models for sustainable production and development, and vehicles for innovative scenarios promising a better future.

    01/07/2018 > 21/10/2018 - Exhibition - The Limits to Growth! Design and no-growth
    Whilst numerous protest movements are expressing their outrage of experts and citizens alike, in theface of the dominant economic and social systems, the CID is questioning the role that design can play in this social movement.Condemned by numerous economists, as well as by designers and sociologists of objects, the capitalist system has undeniably entered a critical phase. In spite of the warnings expressed by such high-profile figures as Victor Papanek and Jean Baudrillard since the 1970s, the (over)production of objects, by means of processes in which ecology and ethics are swept aside or sidestepped, continues to flood the world. But we are now seeing that resistance is becoming organised. Born into a generation whose values are changing— ownership is no longer the ultimate goal of professional success, whereas the concept of personnel development or self-fulfilment is gaining ground—young designers no longer get a sense of satisfaction from having produced a new chair or other consumer item. They are now passionate about the research process, working methods and tools that are more respectful of the environment and resources, and which promote a fairer distribution of profits. Open sourceand social design are bringing about new practices in which profit is no longer the driving force.So can we consider design in another way? Can we use design methods to limit or reduce the number of objects and goods that are accumulating on the planet? Which projects invite us to reduce the consumption of raw materials and fossil fuels? Is there such a thing as not-for-profit design? Could design become a testing ground to reverse the dominant economic processes? Can design elude the obligation of growth?

    The fort of Emin, that was build between 1888 and 1892, is one of the best kept of the nine forts of the city of Namur. It is a very cinematographic place that is hidden behind wild vegetation. By inviting three visual artists (Georges Rousse, Renato Nicolodi and Juan Paparella) to make an in situ work, the fort wants to open its doors to a wider public. The works deal with the notion of trauma and memory.

    15/08/2018 > 28/11/2018 - Exhibition - Tim Burton
    Exhibition The World of Tim Burtontravels to C-mine, Genk in 2018 The international exhibition The World of Tim Burtonwill be displayed in the exhibition spaces of creative cultural heritage site C-mine (Genk – Belgium) from 15 August 2018 until 28 November 2018. After the international success of sculptural art piece Labyrint in 2015 and the design exhibition The World of Charles and Ray Eamesin 2017, C-mine attracts yet another major international project. The touring exhibition on the work of Tim Burton has travelled all around the world from New York to Paris, Tokyo, São Paulo and Prague. Tim Burton, filmmaker and versatile artist Tim Burton (American, b. 1958) is a filmmaker, illustrator, author, and artist—and the creative mind behind the films Pee-wee’s Big Adventure (1985), Beetlejuice (1988), Batman (1989), Edward Scissorhands (1990), Batman Returns (1992), Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), Ed Wood (1994), Mars Attacks! (1996),Sleepy Hollow (1999), Planet of the Apes (2001), Big Fish (2003),Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride (2005), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005),Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007), Alice in Wonderland (2010), Dark Shadows (2012), Frankenweenie (2012),Big Eyes (2014), and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (2016). While Burton had previously been recognized almost exclusively for his cinematic work, the international exhibitions of his drawings, paintings, photographs, puppets, and sculptural installations display the full range of his artistic production. The World of Tim Burton, a touring exhibition curated from the artist’s personal archive, is presented in thematic sections that examine his extensive career. 400 signature pieces organised by themes Organized by curatorJenny He The World of Tim Burton premiered in 2014 and focuses on the distinctive characters and worlds that could only come from Tim Burton’s singular imagination. The exhibition is presented in sections that organise the approximately 500 works. In Around the World works made on sketchbooks, hotel notepads and restaurant napkins demonstrate the spontaneity of Tim Burton’s creative process. In the section Film Charactersthe exhibition offers a deeper look into the film characters that fans of Burton’s movies are so well-acquainted with. And in the section Influencesthe influence of his predecessors on his creative development are demonstrated. The earliest works in the exhibition are found in this section. Together with 6 other themes the exhibition gives new audiences an opportunity to experience Burton’s art in person for the first time and treats familiar visitors to an in-depth look further into his sensibility. Made to measure for C-mine C-mine is a creative experience site in Genk, in the North-East of Belgium. Apart from the industrial heritage that is worth a visit on its own, C-mine has grown as a significant player in the field of art and design. To harmonize the large amount of exhibition pieces with the spaces of the old mining building of C-mine, a local scenographer will be attracted. The exhibition will be completed with a brought public program such as guided tours, films and lectures. The World of Tim Burtonwill without a doubt be one of the must see exhibitions of 2018 in the Benelux.

Innovation in weaving, printing and knitting will be highlighted in this course. We are proud to highlight this branch of design that is part of the wealth of the history of the City of Brussels at the textile level. More than 15 shops will open their doors to the public, with each one presenting the work of one, or more, textile designer(s). Finally, a collective exhibition of participants of the route will be organized at the BIP, Place Royale.

    Playing with light and its colorful variations, geometric shapes and sound, ID#2018 engages the spectator in a unique sensitive and perceptive experience. In 2018, Visual System takes over the exhibitions sphere of the Atomium for a new immersive experience, fruit of their years of experience working with light and sound. This monumental installation of Visual System unfolds as a spider web, under the arch and in the heart of the structure, playing with this unusual and futuristic architecture in this emblematic place. At the rhythm of unpredictable algorithms, the spectator is immersed in this abstract and poetic universe. He is touched by this subtle and inventive combination of light and music. The composition let you see the music and hear the lights.

    23/09/2018 > 17/10/2018 - L'original est signé Vitra
    Depuis ses débuts, la marque Vitra entretient une relation étroite avec ses auteurs et ses designers. Le résultat de la collaboration avec eux est toujours un original.Tout a débuté en 1953 : Willi Fehlbaum, le fondateur de la marque suisse Vitra, découvre les sièges conçus par Charles et Ray Eames lors d’un voyage aux États-Unis et décide de les fabriquer. Il fait la connaissance du couple et naît une amitié qui marque encore, à ce jour, l’entreprise. Ensemble, Vitra et les designers créent des meubles qui sont plus que de simples objets – ils sont le fruit de leur savoir-faire. L’objectif des designers est de créer un produit qui ne soit pas simplement beau à regarder, mais qui soit utile pour l’utilisateur. D’autres aspects entrent également en ligne de compte : l’écologie par exemple, ou la durabilité – le fait que les objets acquièrent une patine qui les ennoblit. Ainsi, ces objets ne vieillissent pas mais s’embellissent. Depuis son installation à l’Émulation, le Théâtre de Liège est entièrement meublé par Vitra. Que ce soit le mobilier Jean Prouvé dans le restaurant le Balcon de l’Émulation, dans le Café des Arts, dans les espaces d’accueil ou encore les aménagements des bureaux par Arik Levy, tout est signé Vitra ! Pour célébrer le 5e anniversaire du Théâtre de Liège dans le bâtiment rénové de l’Émulation et ce partenariat, l’exposition itinérante L’original est signé Vitra présente les produits les plus emblématiques de la rme et raconte leurs incroyables histoires.

    Since its creation in 2002, the Brussels Design Market has evolved into the « largest European vintage design market » and has quickly become a must-see in the international vintage design calendar. Maintaining its unique atmosphere usually characterized by ea markets, the Brussels Design Market has continued to attract more and more visitors from year to year and has developed into a real meeting place. Over the years, the selection of merchandise exhi- bited has increased. Arriving from all over Europe, the dealers present an eclectic collection, bringing to- gether multiple styles and trends that have impacted the 20th century. Visitors discover original and iconic pieces from Italian, French, American, and Scandina- vian design created by the biggest names in the history of design, such as Sottsass, Le Corbusier, Eames, or Ja- cobsen and Panton. Alongside these icons, the Brussels Design Market also offers anonymous and exclusive design pieces at affordable prices. For the 25th edition of the Brussels Design Market and to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the artist, an exhibition will be dedicated to the creations of the ceramist Georges Pelletier. His luminaires, his totems, and his atypical mirrors are all easily recognisable thanks to the handmade details that come together to produce unique sculptural pieces. Before the Brussels Design Market, a rst glimpse of his artwork will be presented in an intimate exhibition in the heart of the Sablon.

  • BRUSSELS DESIGN SEPTEMBER - http://www.designseptember.be
    29/09/2018 > 30/09/2018 - 25th Edition Of Brussels Design Market
    Brussels Design Market was founded 15 years ago. Initially it was simply a flea market exclusively devoted to productions from the 50s to the early 80s. Today, Brussels Design Market is considered one of the best events in Europe dedicated to vintage design of the 20th century. Twice a year, in March and September, Brussels Design Market welcomes 100 exhibitors and over 7.000 visitors in an exceptional and very famous location: Sheds 3 and 4 of Tour & Taxis - home to the largest Belgian cultural events, shows and fairs. The Brussels Design Market was founded more than 15 years ago by three people who are fascinated by vintage design, including Thierry Belenger, who is still in charge of the organisation. Over the years, Brussels Design Market has evolved as the biggest vintage design market and quickly became one of the not to miss events in the calendar of international vintage design. For the 25th edition of Brussels Design Market and the 80th anniversary of the artist, an exhibition is dedicated to the creations of the ceramist Georges Pelletier. His luminaires, totems and atypical mirrors are easily recognisable thanks to their handcrafted details, resulting in a unique sculptural work. Recently his work has been rediscovered thanks to dealers and interior designers who bring a tribute to his work. Georges Pelletier continues making new sculptural pieces but also reproduces his successful pieces from the 60s. As an internationally renowned artist, he is represented by various galleries while many exhibitions are dedicated to his work.

    05/10/2018 > 25/11/2018 - Exhibition - Face A - Face B : Design Station
    A work of good design may seem so obvious that it gives the impression that it was easy to make. But to achieve a result of quality demands of designers creativity, research, technical knowledge, material know-how, a great sense of observation, and also the ability to overcome the constraints and challenges that arise. Fragility is one of these constraints, whether it be the materials used, the precariousness of the designer’s status, the complexity of relationships with clients and intermediaries, or the difficulty of having the value of one’s work recognised, among others. By reviewing different aspects of selected Liege designers’ work, the exhibition will address these and other themes, while showing how these fragilities lead designers to develop strengths. During the triennale, job’in Design will organise a moment of meeting/debate. the eight participating designers will talk about their personal experience of fragility as a creative tool.

    05/10/2018 > 25/11/2018 - Reciprocity Design Liege 2018
    RECIPROCITY 2018 consists of exhibitions, two colloquia, a research project and various workshops that take place in Liège, in its province and the neighboring cities in Belgian and Dutch Limburg and Achen. An international triennale that aims to foster open debate on the role of design - products, services, graphics, and architecture - as a vehicle for sustainable change and social innovation. The 2018 edition will feature a dozen exhibitions, two colloquiums, a research/action project, and many workshops. Although centred in Liege, the triennale’s scope will be broad: events will be located throughout the province, plus the nearby towns of Belgian and Dutch Limburg, and in the German border city of Aachen. In 2018, three central questions will be posed. How can design education play a social role, and offer a space for critical research? How should architects and designers respond to the (new) paradigms of fragility and insecurity? How can co-design and active participation - a combination of designers, students and inhabitants - help address the challenges of urban regeneration and the revitalisation of the social fabric?

    THE GUESTS OF OUR GUEST ARE OUR GUESTS. The welcome implied in the title of this exhibition is also reflected in the process of its making : Laurence Dervaux, the invited artist, extends this invitation to young artists from different cultures, accompanying them in a collaboration around the theme of fragility. Expressed in the materials used and in the subjects treated, fragility here points to human physical and mental frailties, the passing of time, the disappearance of loved ones, displacement... A moment of multicultural exchange. This project was born from dervaux’s desire to actively respond to the themes of population movements and openness to others.

    05/10/2018 > 25/11/2018 - Exhibition - Welcome To Bavière : Quartier d'Outremeuse
    Since 2012, this strand has focused on the search for viable and sustainable solutions through the methodology and practice of co-design. Its discoveries aim to generate projects that lead to citizen awareness and participation, in an effort to improve the quality of life of a community. Imagining the future of a neighbourhood through a design process is now a practice adopted by numerous cities across europe and the rest of the world. in this sense, the designer transmits the ability to create, imagine, and modify the dynamics that discourage collective life and a sense of security. Tapping into creativity’s capacity to intervene in the social context, the designer’s role is that of a vector of possible changes. The third edition of this research/action will be concentrated in the neighbourhood around the future bavière cultural hub development, a key part of Liege’s urban and cultural revitalisation. Led by nik baerten and virginia tassinari, these social innovation design experts have accompanied Welcome to_ since its first outing. In order to guarantee the continuity of the work in the field, the project will be carried out in collaboration with the staff of the chiroux Provincial Library (management and other employees); officials of the Province’s culture department; Aux Livres, citoyens!; and teachers & students of ESA Saint-Luc Liège, social design Master, theory & Mediation and data visualisation and BA graphic techniques of the high school of the Province of Liege in Seraing. The research, developed over the academic year 2017-18, will result in a final project that echoes the active participation of the local inhabitants. it will not be the subject of a formal exhibition, but rather a site-specific presentation of the processes and objectives achieved, symbolised by a series of urban installations.

    05/10/2018 > 25/11/2018 - Exhibition - Museum of La Boverie : Fragilitas & Paradigm
    For the rst time since its reopening, La boverie will host a chorus of re ections on international contemporary design that will occupy all the rooms of the museum. In the glazed wing, monumental installa- tions will enhance its scale and emphasise the link between the museum and the city, between a place of culture and the public space. In short, culture as a common good. An innovative creative force often comes from a moment of crisis; a turning point; a change; a con ict. It can be transforma- tive for both the individual and communities. Fragilitas one of the main thematic cores of this edition. Its raw materials are the crucial points of our existence, and the changing needs these provoke. by nature wide-ranging, this is a re ection on the way design can lead us towards a more equitable society. Here, the creati- vity of design translates challenges into opportunities. Whether it is issues faced by an ageing population, people experiencing all types of disabilities, or the fragile existenceof those forced to migrate because of con ict or natural disaster, Fragilitas explores both mundane and life-changing circumstances. the very fragility of the human condition is framed as a ‘positive’ theme, one to analyse and divest objects and services with improved meanings in new paradigms. Fragilitas is a three-part exhibition that focuses on design’s (products, prototypes, graphics and architecture) engagement with di erent aspects of human fragility. three insightful observers guide each segment, with a scenography that orchestrates a seamless journey and creates a dialogue between the exhi- bitions, involving visitors in an active reading of design and an educational narrative. Liege and belgium will host an exclusive major exhibition co-produced by recIProcItY and rst previewed at Milan design Week 2018. the guest of honour of this edition is Favrica, an international communication research centre based in treviso (It). The design department director and renowned designer sam baron, in collaboration with the prestigious French textile brand Pierre Frey, will present Paradigm, a multidimensional visual journey questioning the role of the image within the contemporary design process. The exhibition is based on the essential needs of the human being represented in a creative and dreamlike way, questioning through a set of tridimentional instal- lations the role of design and its omnipresent visual representation in today’s society. it will be a true visual experience, a unique process with an exquisite sense of narrative.

    05/10/2018 > 25/11/2018 - Exhibition - New educational objects : Museum Of La Vie Wallonne
    For the rst time, recIProcItY focuses on design education in european univer- sities and higher-education institutions. it aims to map recent academic directions and to create a real-time portrait of emer- ging european design. The cultural role of european schools in orientating the direction of design and its social and economic impact are crucial. Design education exceeds disciplinary boundaries, opening itself to multiple visions and a critical approach of the real world. As a result, it is assigned an active and unique pedagogical role. The creation of artefacts and prototypes generated and/or destined to be put into place, bestows the schools with the role of laboratories of the possible, experimenting and researching, inclusive and open. The object here becomes the expression of an educational journey shared between teacher and student, in a dialogue that is often in conflict between the norm and liberty. The object, the artefact, enables accessibility and understanding. It is an embodiment of a theoretical and experimental process, providing a connection between school and society, and a public conversation between the design and its users. Following a call for entries, an international jury will assess the submitted projects and make a selection that best represents current-future trends, methodologies and issues. The resulting exhibition is to be based on the thematic clusters that arise from the selection process. The selection committee will awardfour prizes, one in each of the following categories: international, euregio meuse- Rhine, Wallonia-brussels Federation, and Wallonia higher-education.the awards ceremony will take place in the exhibition venue on 4 october 2018 during the press preview.

  • ARENBERG FESTIVAL LEUVEN - https://www.arenbergleuven.be/
    20/10/2018 > 20/01/2019 - Arenberg Festival in Leuven
    Inside the rarefied world of an aristocratic family This autumn KU[N]ST Leuven and M-Museum Leuven are shining a light on a part of Leuven’s rich history by bringing to life the grandiose world of the noble Arenberg family. This they are doing by means of two prestigious exhibitions and a varied programme of events. The exhibition Power and Beauty. The Arenbergs at M-Museum Leuven, which runs from October 26th 2018 to January 20th 2019, is a once-in-a-lifetime reunion of masterpieces from the former Arenberg family’s collection and includes paintings and engravings by Rubens, Veronese, Dürer and Jordaens. The exhibition also takes a look at the lavish lifestyle, pomp and splendour enjoyed by this notable family. A second exhibition Noble Living. The castle at Heverlee, from Croÿ to Arenberg in the University Library illustrates the architectural history of Arenberg Castle in Heverlee and the fascinating lives of the Arenberg family who spent much of their time there. The Arenberg Festival will open with a festive weekend on October 20th and 21st. The grounds of Arenberg Castle, once a favourite residence of the Arenbergs and now the campus of Leuven university’s Faculty of Engineering, will provide the setting for a novel mix of historical and futuristic activities. The weekend with culminate in a spectacular video mapping projection on the façade of Arenberg Castle by video artist Nele Fack. www.arenbergleuven.be An initiative of KU[N]ST Leuven vzw, a partnership between the City of Leuven and the University of Leuven

    21/10/2018 > 21/10/2018 - Table ronde - Equiper la décroissance
    La décroissance, une thématique plus actuelle que jamais en 2018 ! Concept économique, politique et social, qui remet en cause l’idée selon laquelle l’augmentation des richesses conduit au bien-être social, la décroissance vise donc à réduire la production de biens et de services dans l’objectif de préserver l’environnement... jusqu’à l’humanité toute entière. Depuis quelques décennies, penseurs, politiciens, agriculteurs, inventeurs ou militants prônent la décroissance. Architectes et designers se sont dressés, aussi, pour proposer d’autres voies, d’autres pistes, qui n’ont pas besoin de l’hypothèse de la croissance pour offrir un horizon d’espoir aux êtres humains. C’est à se mettre à l’écoute de certains d’entre eux que sera consacrée cette demi-journée de débat. Un débat autour de la décroissance et du rôle ambigu du design dans notre société de consommation. Autour de la table, prendront place Paul Ariès (politologue), Lieven De Cauter (philosophe), Pierre Echard (architecte d’intérieur, expert en éco- design) et Mathilde Pellé (designer). La modération sera assurée par le philosophe Laurent de Sutter. Nous espérons que vous pourrez diffuser largement cette information. Par ailleurs, Madame Fabienne Capot, Députée provinciale en charge de la Culture et du Tourisme et Présidente de l’asbl CID - centre d'innovation et de design au Grand-Hornu, et Madame Marie Pok, Directrice du CID, ont le plaisir de vous inviter à cette table ronde exceptionnelle.

    23/11/2018 > Exhibition - Night Fever: A Design History of Culture Club
    Nightclubs and discos are the epitome of contemporary culture. They merge architecture and interior design with sound, light, fashion, furnishing, graphics and visual effects to create a modern Gesamtkunstwerk. As place of cultural experimentation for subcultures and avant-garde, they question the established codes of social life and offer individual and collective freedom by playing with different identities and realities. If the 20th century was the age of pop culture, the nightclub was probably its most powerful design expression. Night Fever is the first exhibition to examine the design history of the nightclub. It will feature exhibits from design, art, architecture, music and media including films and original photographs, flyers, posters, records covers, models, furniture, magazines as well as 1:1 installations that will immerse the visitors in a journey of creative experimentation.

    03/02/2019 > 19/05/2019 - Exhibition - Hors Pistes: Encounters in Groeland
    Through residencies, Hors Pistes initiates creative exchanges between artisans and designers from all over the world. During a month-long residency, they share skills, knowledge, and cultures. By breaking their work habits, they rethink their creation process and find new application to the traditional techniques. Together, artisans and designers experiment and get inspired from the identity of the territory. The results of the collaboration foster the transfer of artisanal know-how and question its heritage and future. By going “off-road”, Hors Pistes offers professionals the opportunity to be involved in a multidisciplinary laboratory and to reflect on conventional production models by encouraging innovative creation processes. Free-form explorations, alternative life stories. In 2014, the CID hosted the first Ouagadougou Off-piste experience. In 2019, it is the first museum to host the third edition of the project: Hors Pistes Nuuk. Nuuk is the capital of Groenland, an island with limited natural resources and a harsh climate. The local artisanal techniques take the surrounding geographical constraints into account and the Inuit culture is deeply connected to its land. The craftsmen find their inspiration in nature and work with materials such as stone, wood, soil, wool, skin, and bones of hunted animals. Altered during the last century by the various exchanges with the Western regions, Inuit traditions are being transformed with globalisation. If they were essential for survival, fishing and hunting practices are less and less used. This gradual disappearance endangers the related craft techniques, such as animal skin transformation or traditional kayak making. In the meantime, new techniques are being introduced and absorbed, such as embroidery, beadwork, or ceramic. The exhibition “Hors pistes Nuuk” aims to initiate encounters with Greenlandic culture, replace human exchanges at the heart of the creative processes. While the experimentations, prototypes and objects –all resulting from the researches conducted during the residency– embody the spirit of each encounter, the present exhibition also shares stories –narrated by an editorial team.

    08/02/2019 > 26/05/2019 - Exposition - Laine et lin: textiles égyptiens
    Révélant le rapport de l’Homme à l’étoffe, l’exposition entraînera les visiteurs dans un voyage au cœur du foyer égyptien. Les tissus accompagnaient leurs propriétaires tout au long de leur vie. Aujourd’hui, ces pièces devenues rares nous amènent à apprécier l’humain derrière les objets. Transmission du patrimoine, réutilisations des matières, techniques de tissages, motifs et couleurs sauront surprendre. En 2015, le Musée royal de Mariemont recevait en dépôt plus de 215 pièces de textiles égyptiens datant du 3ème au 12ème siècle. Cette collection, d’abord patiemment rassemblée par Maria Luise Fill et Robert Trevisiol, et ensuite offerte à la Fondation Roi Baudouin, sera exposée au Musée royal de Mariemont du 8 février au 26 mai 2019. L’exposition présentera l’ensemble des pièces vestimentaires et de tissus d’ameublement de la collection, parmi lesquelles, des pièces encore jamais dévoilées au public. Mise en contexte grâce à plusieurs objets évoquant l’iconographie et empruntées à des collections publiques et privées, l’exposition présentera les résultats de plusieurs années de recherche et invitera le visiteur à découvrir les techniques de base du tissage ainsi que les colorants utilisés. L’usage des textiles et la difficulté d’interprétation de ceux-ci seront également évoqués. De lin et de laine. Textiles égyptiens (3e – 12e siècles) explore des fragments du quotidien des Égyptiens de l’époque, mis en lumière à travers de nombreuses pièces, créées de leurs mains, et qui les auront accompagnés jusque dans la tombe. Un lien intime, qui nous éclaire quant à l’Homme derrière l’étoffe. Découvrir l’exposition lors d’une visite commentée par les collectionneurs. Quelques visites seront organisées en compagnie des collectionneurs, Maria Luise Fill et Robert Trevisiol. Deux parcours pour se plonger dans le quotidien des Égyptiens du 3ème au 12ème siècle. Un parcours en individuels destiné aux adultes sera proposé par le conservateur et commissaire. Un parcours en individuels dédié aux enfants sera pensé avec le service pédagogique du Musée.

    17/02/2019 > 26/05/2019 - Exhibition - Glass-oriented design
    “Glass is, in general, the enemy of secrets.” ]This was how Walter Benjamin identified the ambivalent transparency of a material with which it seems very difficult to hide one’s intentions. The dialectics between apparent banality and potential for transgression in habit the process that has governed Cirva’s mission since its creation over thirty years ago in Marseille. Indeed, the laboratory’s vocation is to explore the relationships between art, design and glass through a wide range of the oretical and practical procedures, combined with the personal approaches of the artists and designers who are invited there for research and creation residencies. The Glass-Oriented Designe xhibition presents an eloquent series of experiments with glass conducted at Cirva by designers from very different horizons, but who are united by the opportunity to work and take part in an ongoing dialogue with the glassmaker. The first part of the show focuses on the object-constructions invented by Andrea Branzi at Cirva between 2001 and 2008, which question the relationships between domestic objects, nature and architecture. A more formal, technical approach to the material is highlighted through the research of Sylvain Willenz (Shift, Spot lights and Block containers collections, 2011/2012) and the lighting project developed by the Frenchduo Normal Studio (2013/2016), which explore the imprint left by the mould. The emphasis here is placed on the stages of work which make it possible to understand the experimental process. Through the poetic, narrative universe of David Dubois, the exhibition also considers questions of randomness and movement. Like a central theme, a series of unique works including suspension and wall lights (Globes, 2014) form a lighting landscape which in spatial terms is both graphic and diaphanous. Since 2011, Cirva and the Design Parade festival at the Villa Noailles in Hyères have chosen to work together through a one-year research residency grant for the winner of a competition. The young designer is given the brief to create one or a series of original vases. These creations are now being used to decorate the Villa Noailles with flowers, as during the time of the villa’s commissioners, Charles and Marie-Laure de Noailles, who were aesthetes and loved flowers. This precious testimony to modernist architecture, designed by the architect Robert Mallet-Stevens between 1923 and 1933, still remains contemporary and full of life. The exhibition scenography has been entrusted to Normal Studio. Drawing on their research experience at Cirva, they have designed a framework that enables the various worlds and functions to interconnect, there by codifying Cirva’s language of commitment to design and creation.

  • EURANTICA FINE ART FAIR 2018 - www.eurantica.be
    21/03/2019 > 24/03/2019 - Eurantica Brussels Fine Art Fair
    This daring initiative is supported by Belgian and foreign gallerists, dealers and collectors. This enthusiasm illustrates the trust that the sector has in the fair as an important meeting place for classic and modern art. This position illustrates the rise of Brussels as Parisian anti-chambre in a context where London, capital of the European art market, takes distance from the continent. Paris reinforces her appeal and profiles itself in an active way as the most important place for the European art market. Eurantica follows this new position by choosing the theme “Paris-Brussels” for this edition. But that doesn’t mean that Eurantica forgets her roots. True to itself, Eurantica is elegant, eclectic and rich on discoveries. It embraces all domains and periods. It reinforces and keeps its strong anchorage in classic paintings of Old Masters, Belgian and European post-war painting, jewellery, old furniture, vintage furniture and collection objects. Eurantica responds to the expectations of the art market by presenting a fair that gives extra attention to the classic sector in a dynamic and contemporary environment with accessible prices. The antiquarians show quality pieces in beautiful presentations.

    23/06/2019 > 13/10/2019 - Exhibition - Design on air
    Curator: Chris Meplon Invisible, intangible, immaterial.But also omnipresent and vital. No life on earth is possible without air. Air - for now - is free and belongs to everyone. But in the Anthropocene it becomes more and more threatened and requires protection. How do designers deal with air? How do they use it?What does air mean to them? This exhibition looks at the theme of air from different design perspectives. From air used for material objects, like inflatable objects and structures, to air in speculative design scenarios. Including technical and practical design solutions as well as alternative or futurist concepts, from air purification and ventilation to air travel. Because just like air, with its tendency to mix and diffuse, design is essentially mixed, plural, rather elusive and…vital.
