  • 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.

  • EUROPAEXPO - GENERATION 80 EXPERIENCE - https://www.europaexpo.be/
    22/09/2018 > 01/09/2019 - Exhibition - Generation 80 Experience
    After the Golden Sixties, marked notably by the events of May 1968, EUROPA EXPO is proud to present GENERATION 80's EXPERIENCE or freedom regained! The world was split in two, the East clashed with the West, freedom and prosperity were in conflict with censorship and austerity! Whilst politicians bust a gut to build walls, citizens dreamed of building bridges and communicating with each other. The end of economic growth, industrial modernisation, political crises and environmental challenges were all concerns that encouraged greater realism, humanism, solidarity and the desire to overcome the divisions of “left versus right” or “capitalism versus communism”. At the same time, globalisation was weaving its web and becoming a reality affecting everybody, as the world became a big village! It was also the time of the enthusiastic youths who reinvented the world, challenging the codes of language and etiquette, young people who felt the blast of the wind of new freedom, which had hatched in 1968. Society was called into question and underwent a crisis in values. Science seemed helpless in the face of a new epidemic: AIDS. GENERATION 80’s EXPERIENCE paints a broad panorama and follows a stimulating path through the evolution of music, cinema, TV, comedy, comics, design and fashion during this decade, not forgetting sport also. At the same time, hope of a better world emerged... The Berlin Wall came tumbling down on the night of 9th to 10th November 1989.

  • LA BOVERIE - VILLE DE LIÈGE - http://www.liege.be/culture/musees/boverie-beaux-arts-expos-liege
    21/12/2018 > 18/08/2019 - Exposition – Chefs d’œuvre, Regards sur la collection du musée des Beaux-Arts de Liège
    From the masters of the Renaissance to those of the avant-garde movement, by way of famous international artists (Ingres, Monet, Pissarro, Picasso, Chagall, Arp, Magnelli, Debré, Hantai, Monory, Gilbert & George and more), Liège. Chefs-d’œuvrewill offer an unprecedented journey through the masterpieces in the collection of the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Liège. Belgian artists are not omitted: Constant Permeke, James Ensor, Emile Claus, the surrealists René Magritte and Paul Delvaux, Pierre Alechinsky, Marthe Wéry, not to mention the Liège-born Lambert Lombard, Gérard de Lairesse, Léonard Defrance, Jean Rets, among others. It is an opportunity for the people of Liège, as well as any visitors from Belgium or overseas, to discover a vast selection of exceptional works and admire the considerable richness of this expansive collection. This unprecedented exhibition – which will showcase more than 150 paintings and sculptures – will be original in more than one way. Since the reopening of La Boverie in May 2016, many works, which had been weakened with time or kept in reserve, have not been exhibited for a long time. The Liège. Chefs-d’œuvreexhibition was designed to establish a dialogue between different eras and formal movements, all the while offering visitors certain specific focuses on particular artists and artistic trends: Henri Evenepoel, the shining talent of Rik Wouters, the elusive James Ensor, Pol Bury’s moving sculptures, the Cobra movement, as well as evoking the steel-working tradition of the Liège basin through the eyes of 20thand 21stcentury artists.Certain masterpieces will be exhibited on an exceptional basis: Les Femmes vertueusesby Lambert Lombard, a collection of statues and sketches by Jean Del Cour, the Baroque sculptor, Mise au tombeau, an Impressionist work by Paul Delvaux, as well as a number of important pieces from the Wallonia-Brussels Federation will be given pride of place. In anticipation of this exhibition, and after a first volume published during its reopening in May 2016, the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Liège is also preparing for the publication of the second volume of the collections catalogue. This beautiful book of art will include a selection of about 120 pieces, commentated by art historians and qualified scholars.

  • SCHIEPERS GALLERY | CONTEMPORARY GLASS -
    02/02/2019 > 20/04/2019 - Schiepers Gallery 2019
    In 2017, Sue Schiepers has opened the one and only gallery in Belgium that is specialised in artworks in glass. For 2019, Sue Schiepers proposes three exhibitions: from February 2 until April 20 Baldwin & Guggisberg; from May 11 until August 3 Kait Rhoads; and from September 28 until December 21 Christine Vanoppen & Wouter Bolangier. Baldwin & Guggisberg (USA & CH) Philip Baldwin, who was born in New York, and the Swiss Monica Guggisberg have worked together since 1980, studying together in Sweden. As students they assisted Wilke Adolfsson and Ann Wolff before leaving Sweden in 1982 to set up their own studio in Switzerland. They continued to work as glass artists in Switzerland for another twenty years before moving to Paris in 2001 and in 2015 to Wales, where they currently live and work. After their successful Canterbury Cathedral exhibition, this duo is coming to Belgium. Kait Rhoads (USA) Kait Rhoads is an American sculptor. She lives and works in Seattle. She creates innovative structures using traditional glass cane and murrine (Italian glass technique). Rhoads’s youth was spent between rural Virginia and a sailboat in the Bahamas and the Caribbean. Growing up on the water was a major influence, and is a great source of inspiration. Her ‘Sea Stones’ series references these watery origins: simple shapes with subtle shifts in colour and quick gleams of light reminiscent of the sun on the waves. To create these amorphous shapes, she weaves together hollow glass cane with copper wire. The resulting small sculptures beg to be touched, their scale, surface and playfulness eliciting a variety of responses from curious viewers. This is Rhoads’s first European exhibition of her work. Christine Vanoppen & Wouter Bolangier (both BE) Christine Vanoppen’s artistic works span a diversity of applications, permanently displacing the limits of the possible. She experiments with various techniques and materials, drawing inspiration from both architecture and natural structures. Wouter Bolangier started working with glass at sixteen years of age. Today, he works primarily in glass, stainless steel and rubber. His work takes us into a world of suspended animation, where objects come back to life in new and magical ways full of unending sparkles, reflections and hues. At the same time, you are very aware of their fragility, with every seemingly stable instance being an illusion.

    03/02/2019 > 19/05/2019 - Exhibition - Hors Pistes: Encounters in Groenland
    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.

  • MUSEUM OF MARIEMONT - http://www.musee-mariemont.be
    08/02/2019 > 26/05/2019 - Exhibition - ​From linen till wool. Egyptian textiles
    This exhibition, that reveals the connection between man and textile, takes the visitor on a journey through the heart of the Egyptian household. The pieces accompany their owner during their entire life. Nowadays, these pieces have become rare and make us appreciate the human being behind the objects. Transmission of the heritage, re-use of materials, techniques of weaving, motifs and colours can surprise. In 2015, the Musée royal de Mariemont received 215 textile pieces from the 3th until the 12th century in stock. This collection, first patiently collected by Maria Luise Fill and Robert Trevisiol, and afterwards offered to the Fondation Roi Baudouin, will be exhibited in the Musée royal de Mariemont from February 8 until May 26, 2019. The exhibition presents the clothes and textiles for furnishing from the collection, besides pieces that have never been shown to the public before. Contextualised thanks to several objects that have been borrowed from public and private collections and that evoke the iconography, the exhibition presents the results of several years of research and invites the visitor to discover the basic techniques of weaving and the colour products that have been used. The use of textiles and the difficulty of interpreting them is equally evoked. From linen till wool. Egyptian textiles (3th – 12th century) explores fragments of the daily life of the Egyptians from that period, illustrated by several pieces they made themselves and that will accompany them until their grave. It is an intimate bond that reveals the man behind the textile. There are visits organised in presence of the collectors Maria Luise Fill and Robert Trevisiol. Two trajectories to delve into the daily life of the Egyptians from the 3th until the 12th century.

    Installé depuis plusieurs années dans la région de Chimay, Stijn Cole (Gand, 1978) déploie une oeuvre multidisciplinaire (peinture, photo, dessin, sculpture) qui puise ses origines dans l'histoire de l'art. Pour son exposition au BPS22, il a choisi de travailler au départ de la série Calais, ensemble de 21 peintures de Marthe Wéry appartenant au BPS22. Cole est retourné sur la plage de Calais et, comme Wéry, a pris une série de photos face à la mer: autant de suggestions de monochromes (le bleu du ciel se confond avec le gris de la mer). Il en a tiré différentes peintures qui décomposent méthodiquement le spectre chromatique. Un exercice délicat, entre rigueur intellectuelle et sensibilité pratique.

  • CID - centre d'innovation et de design au Grand-Hornu - http://www.cid-grand-hornu.be
    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.

  • HORTA MUSEUM (SAINT-GILLES) - http://www.hortamuseum.be
    15/03/2019 > 30/06/2019 - 3 extraordinary exhibitions: 50th anniversary of the Musée Horta (Saint-Gilles)
    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!

  • EURANTICA FINE ART FAIR 2019 - www.eurantica.be
    28/03/2019 > 31/03/2019 - Eurantica Brussels Fine Art Fair
    Modern paintings, ancient furniture or design, jewels or paintings by Flemish masters can be admired in Palais 1 of Brussels Expo for the occasion of the 2019 edition of Eurantica Brussels that opens its doors from 26 until 31 March 2019. The fair unites 97 Belgian and foreign exhibitors that will showcase in a surface that has increased with 15%. Eurantica also proposes an integrated open space restaurant. This dynamic formula reinforces the informal character of the fair that is known for its faithful and well-informed clientele. Attracted by the high discovery factor of the fair, the audience of amateurs and collectors is every year reinforced by a young generation with a more eclectic taste. Design and Art nouveau are well represented this year, amongst others with gallery Thibaut Wolvesperges Art and Furniture (Brussels) – that combines the 18th and the 20th century. One can discover rare pieces by Gustave Serrurier-Bovy, a big name of the Art nouveau in Belgium, or Jules Wabbes, who embodies sober and vintage chic design. Bie Baert and Frank Van Laer will enlarge the offer of furniture and art objects with inspiring stands. Axel Pairon (Antwerp) surprises with a selection of design and contemporary pieces. Old Masters are also in the spotlights, and specifically the Flemish masters that are presented by Galerie Barrez (Paris) but also Frederik Muller Antiek (Antwerp). Modern paintings are well represented, and defended by specialists like the Antwerp galleries Raf Van Severen, NF Art Gallery or Beukelaer-Nordin Fine Arts. Jewellery, a very active domain that is traditionally well-represented at the fair, also has some faithful adherents and some new faces. Also good to know: the participation of Maison Riondet (Lyon), specialised in collector’s watches. The dynamics of the fair and its solid organisation attract a big number of French galleries, seduced by the Eurantica audience and do not hesitate to change their offer to the Belgian market, like Galerie Barrez, Bernard Bouisset, Galerie Lassus, Galerie Laurence Fayolle or also Galerie Humeurs (first participation). There is also the presence, for the first time, of Rosat Antiques Fine Silver, specialised in silverwork from Switzerland, and of faithful galleries like Galerie Louis and of Egbert Eibel – a première – from Germany, or Galerie Tandem and Het Ware Huis, specialised in Art nouveau and based in the Netherlands. Eurantica welcomes a prestigious guest this year, the Horta Museum Brussels (Saint-Gilles) that celebrates its 50th anniversary. The friends of the Horta Museum Brussels are present at the fair with an exceptional ensemble of twelve pieces of furniture from the Wolfers shop. For the occasion, the original glass will be shown, reproduced by Val-Saint Lambert, that was integrated in a frame in gilt bronze and signed by Victor Horta. It is the only saved piece of decorative art that was realised by Victor Horta. For your information: all the archives and drawings have been destroyed. This year the fair has several exceptional booths. At the entrance, there is a big booth dedicated to the Empire period. Galerie de Potter d’Indoye proposes a selection of elegant pieces with sober lines that fit well in both classic and very contemporary interiors. De Potter, who is passionate about old furniture and rare objects, and his partner, Diane van Ussel, who in her turn is fascinated by design, have concentrated, with the years, on the end of the XVIIIth century. They are especially fascinated by exceptional pieces from the Empire period from manufactures in Paris, like the clock in gilt bronze with a complex mechanism or pieces of furniture from famous houses. The scenography of the booth is further completed with French paintings from various periods and horizons. Cubism and abstraction are also well represented by Claes Gallery (René Guiette), NF Gallery (André Lanskoy) or galerie Raf Van Severen (Marcel-Louis Baugniet). These three faithful exhibitors are specialists in French and Belgian modernity, before and after the war. The fair returns this autumn with a dynamic formula of 6 days (a much appreciated formula in 2018). Eurantica will open with a Preview on Tuesday, March 26 and afterwards a vernissage on Wednesday, March 27. A group of experts will check the pieces before the opening and will remain available for the audience for all questions. They also give certificates to buyers of the pieces that are exhibited at the fair.

  • SCHIEPERS GALLERY | CONTEMPORARY GLASS -
    09/05/2019 > 03/08/2019 - Exhibition ​Kait Rhoads
    Kait Rhoads is an American sculptor. She lives and works in Seattle. She creates innovative structures using traditional glass cane and murrine (Italian glass technique). Rhoads’s youth was spent between rural Virginia and a sailboat in the Bahamas and the Caribbean. Growing up on the water was a major influence and is a great source of inspiration. Her ‘Sea Stones’ series references these watery origins: simple shapes with subtle shifts in colour and quick gleams of light reminiscent of the sun on the waves. To create these amorphous shapes, she weaves together hollow glass cane with copper wire. The resulting small sculptures beg to be touched, their scale, surface and playfulness eliciting a variety of responses from curious viewers. This is Rhoads’s first European exhibition of her work.

    Result of two in-depth and inspired projects, like all those bearing the signature of the Brazilian photographer João Farkas, the exhibition "Brazil - Land & Soul Land" will open at the Brazilian Embassy in Brussels on May 23, 2019 at 18:30. As the photographer says, "Being invited to exhibit outside of my country is an opportunity to show Brazilian photography, one of the strongest, most significant and most creative in the world." The photographer will show 40 unpublished images from the "Pantanal" series, all made in the past five years to serve as a sensitive warning message. "The thundering beauty of this Brazilian region is perceived as distant, untouched and indestructible. Which is not true. We also feel the effects of the anthropocene, the deep action of man on the planet."There will also be photographs from the project « Caretas de Maragojipe », based on the inventory of masks of carnival of the city of Maragojipe (BA) during five carnivals, and this project served as a visual basis for the design of the Carnival Museum, inaugurated in Salvador last year, under the guidance and curating of Gringo Cardia .

    08/06/2019 > 01/10/2019 - Exhibition - De ta salive qui mord - Sanam Khatibi
    Shaking up the stereotypes of gender and domination, the works of Sanam Khatibi (Iran, 1979) both captivate and revolt you at the same time. Born in Iran, the Belgian artist paints female figures, solitary or in packs, subversive and provocative, giving free rein to their animal desires in landscapes evoking a far-off, atypical Eden. His subjects, which are ambiguous in their relations to power, violence, sensuality, question excess, loss of control, domination and submission. Aside from his large oil paintings, populated by animals and hunting stories which are as naïve as they are cruel, Sanam Khatibi also creates drawings, embroidery and tapestry which are often based around installations. The exhibition De ta salive qui mord / Your Biting Saliva starts out from a personal collection of objects from very varied provenances, such as archaeological debris, idols, ceramics which are an integral part of his practice.

    08/06/2019 > 25/08/2019 - Exhibition - MX Temple - Xavier Mary
    In Cambodia and Thailand, the artist was fascinated by traditional metalwork, the recovery of mechanical and electronic components, the customising of vehicles, the hustle and bustle of cities and the calm of Buddhist temples and the wild jungle. As a result of these contrasting new experiences, he produces works by associating and transforming objects, signs, logos, sounds or animated images. Following his intuition, he associates - in order better to blend them - collective perceptions of time, space and symbols, matters and mechanics, technologies and biological species, in order to bring about a new aesthetic register which provides the basis for a visual vocabulary that is specific to the 21stcentury.

  • CID - centre d'innovation et de design au Grand-Hornu - http://www.cid-grand-hornu.be
    23/06/2019 > 13/10/2019 - Exhibition - Design on air
    Invisible, intangible, immaterial. Yet omnipresent and vital. No life on earth is possible without air. Scientists and philosophers share their fascination for air with contemporary designers. The Design on Air exhibition at CID in Grand-Hornu explores the relationships between design and air, the most ethereal, and at the same time the most essential of the four traditional elements. Air – at least for now – is free, belonging to everyone. But in our Anthropocene age, it is also becoming an increasingly threatened resource, in need of protection. How are designers reacting to this? How do they deal with air? What does air mean to them? And can design justifiably be compared to air? In Design on Air, the theme of air is approached from diverse angles, from air as an inflatable material to blowing air as a formative and technical procedure. From the movement of air to the quality of air. Sometimes, the priority is a search for material expertise or innovation in technical production, or such functional issues as safety and comfort, or it might be about the magic of the rarefied, the fleeting, the ethereal. The one need not cancel out the other.

  • LABIOMISTA -
    06/07/2019 > LABIOMISTA opens its gates
    On 6 July 2019, LABIOMISTA officially opens its gates to the public. This unique, evolving work of art by Koen Vanmechelen is a vigorous hybrid of art, science and society. “LABIOMISTA is a homage to the mix of life itself,” says the artist, who realised this project in close partnership with the city of Genk. LABIOMISTA is the embodiment of Koen Vanmechelen’s art and philosophy. Spanning 20 years, his oeuvre is internationally acclaimed for its exploration of the intersections between art, science and community. The artist is motivated by his belief in art as a catalyst for mutual understanding and as a guiding light in our search for answers to the great challenges of the 21st century – in particular - the relationship between nature and culture, and sustainable community development. LABIOMISTA is an atypical project, emerging from a remarkable collaboration between the artist and the city of Genk. “As the most culturally diverse city in Flanders, we share Koen Vanmechelen’s conviction that diversity explains the present and shapes the future. That’s why we are confident to give him free rein with LABIOMISTA, and will work with him to produce a bountiful harvest in the fertile ground of Zwartberg, both in terms of artistic experiments and social redevelopment,” says Wim Dries, the Mayor of Genk. Four years have passed between the ground-breaking at LABIOMISTA and its public opening. It will continue to develop and mature into an exciting meeting place for diversity of all stripes, where universal socio-ecological topics take shape and become the subject of artistic discourse.

    Christine Vanoppen’s artistic works span a diversity of applications, permanently displacing the limits of the possible. She experiments with various techniques and materials, drawing inspiration from both architecture and natural structures. Wouter Bolangier started working with glass at sixteen years of age. Today, he works primarily in glass, stainless steel and rubber. His work takes us into a world of suspended animation, where objects come back to life in new and magical ways full of unending sparkles, reflections and hues. At the same time, you are very aware of their fragility, with every seemingly stable instance being an illusion.

  • TRINK HALL Museum -
    01/03/2020 > Opening of Trink Hall Museum (Liege)
    The architectural renovation and the reopening of the iconic « Trink-Hall », previously Madmusée and Madcafé, takes shape in the Parc d’Avroy in Liège and will be inaugurated in March 2020. In March 2020, the cultural offer of the city of Liège will have a new museum. The renovation of this building (and its iconic café) in the heart of the Parc d’Avroy, in the centre of Liège, is supported by the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, the city of Liège and the asbl Créahm, Walloon region. Almost 3000 works of art that have been realised by mentally handicapped people during workshops are conserved and presented to the public. The exhibition spaces that are dedicated to the collection cover 400 m2 at the first floor of the museum, but there are also venues for temporary exhibitions. The restoration of the building was entrusted to the Atelier d’Architecture Beguin-Massart. The renovation and extension of the building is translated towards a daring, transparent envelop that encapsulates the old building from the 1960 in its architectural structure. In the spring of 2020, the museum will reintegrate its building and change its name. This change of name comes from the affirmation of an identity and a new exhibition programme. The opening is the realisation and the result of a long process. But it is also the occasion to ask questions and to rethink the museum project.
