  • THEATRE DE LIEGE - PREMIERE SCENE DE WALLONIE - http://www.theatredeliege.be
    Architecture by Pierre Hebbelinck & Pierre de Wit + Jean Prouvé (Vitra)
    Renovation of the Société Libre d’Émulation building by Pierre Hebbelinck and Pierre de Wit and relocation from Place de l’Yser to Place du 20-Août. The project to relocate the Théâtre de la Place’s activities to the Société Libre d’Émulation building began in 2002. This society was established in 1779 with the vocation of promoting the arts, letters and sciences. Located in the heart of urban life, opposite the University of Liège, its premises were destroyed by fire in 1914, making way in 1939 for a building designed by Julien Koening. Partly destroyed in the Second World War, renovation work began in 2011. Liège-based architects Pierre Hebbelinck and Pierre de Wit –the designers behindthe Museum of Contemporary Art Grand-Hornu (MAC’s), Le Manège in Mons and the restoration of the former Halle aux Viandes in Liège – were appointed to mastermind the entire project, comprising architecture, engineering, stage design and acoustics. The project is centred on converting and extending the existing building in order to house the theatre in a prestigious and appropriate setting. The Émulation is preparing to become a multi-disciplinary facility in the service of creation, welcoming theatre, choreography and music. The premises will offer technical facilities on a scale and convenience not previously found in Place de l’Yser, the Théâtre de la Place’s home for almost thirty-five years. The complex includes a large theatre (557 seats), a small theatre (145 seats), an exhibition space for visual arts, a rehearsal room and new reception areas (a restaurant, bar and bookshop). In all, the building’s surface area is 7,800 m2. The costume workshops and stores are being integrated into this building, while the set construction workshops have moved to a new space in Ans. The budget for the building’s renovation is 23 million euros,of which 55% is coming from the Wallonia-Brussels French Community, 16% from the Walloon Region,10% from the Province of Liège and 19% from the City of Liège.This will provide a complete overhaul of Place Cockerill and Place du 20-Août and will also involve the demolition of the old installations in the Théâtre de la Place in Outremeuse and its complete conversion.

  • FRAC DUINKERKE - http://www.fracnpdc.fr
    28/01/2017 > 27/08/2017 - 'Als objecten thuis komen', vanuit de collectie van het FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais
    Objecten vullen ons leven, ze zijn de vorm waarin ons dagdagelijkse is gegoten. Wij verzamelen objecten, we bezitten ze en gooien ze weer weg, een nooit ophoudende stroom. Nieuwe objecten, gebruikt of gerecycleerd, hoe kiezen we de voorwerpen die onze wereld vullen? Waar komen deze dingen vandaan en welk verhaal dragen ze met zich mee? Je auto of je smartphone, maar ook je designmeubel, allemaal zijn ze de vrucht van de globale stroom met zijn schone en soms ranzige kantjes. We zien al deze objecten zo vaak dat we ze niet meer zien. Ze komen thuis bij ons en wij komen thuis bij hen. In onze maatschappij waarin dingen hebben enorm belangrijk is, staan sommige voorwerpen zo centraal dat ons leven errond is gebouwd. Hoe als mens weerstaan aan de macht van dingen? Het Frac Nord-Pas de Calais is de enige in zijn soort die van bij de start designvoorwerpen heeft opgenomen in zijn collectie. Meubels, artefacten, sculpturen, schilderijen, video’s ... veel kunstenaars hebben alledaagse dingen uit hun context gerukt, hebben het hernoemd, hebben er nieuwe gebruiksvormen voor bedacht. De kapotgerukte fauteuils van Barbara Visser of de stoel van Philippe Ramette kiezen voor een gewelddadige mise-en-scène, terwijl de video van Gerard Byrne over de automobielindustrie en die van Claude Closky over modemagazines met de nodige ironie kijken naar de mens aangepast aan zijn omgeving. Designers zoals Tejo Remy, Konstantin Grcic of Matali Crasset maken van hun werk een forum voor maatschappijkritiek. Geïnspireerd op de overpeinzingen van Bruno Latour over “harige objecten” die dieper ingaat op het themavan traditionele fetisjen, toont deze tentoonstelling ook voorwerpen en hun ingebedde betekenis.

  • CHATEAU DE CHIMAY - http://www.chateaudechimay.be
    03/04/2017 > 12/11/2017 - Season 2017 - Stijn Cole (3/4/2017 - 30/7/2017)
    From 3 april onwards, the Château de Chimay will start its touristic season since the launch of its digital circuit in 2013. After Marie-Jo Lafontaine, Koen Vanmechelen, Hans Op de Beeck and Jean-Luc Moerman, Stijn Cole will present his work in the Maison des Artistes and the Château de Chimay. Stijn Cole is born in Ghent in 1978 and lives and works in Chimay. Cole uses a wide variety of techniques but what links his work is the light: in his videos, scale models, sculptures, paintings, drawings and installations, he plays with the changing effect of light. He often makes site-specific work and likes to reveal the challenges of the buildings, preferably buildings with a heavy history. Visitors can visit the Château with an Ipad and discover its history through a projection of a 3D film. An innovation that clearly convinces the visitors as the Castle attracts an international public that grows every year (14.283 visitors in 2015). The Château de Chimay’s theatre will also reveal its new music and theatre programme under direction of Anne Pingen. The visit to the castle also offers the occasion to discover - or rediscover - the castle’s gastronomic restaurant, LO’riginale, or to organise a banquet or reception in the Relais des Princes (according to a table d'hôtes formula for lunch, tea time or dinners in group). In both cases, you can enjoy the cooking skills of chef Loïc Pierard, a modern cuisine based on local products that are hard to resist. The Château de Chimay offers the possibility for children to follow workshops in which they can discover the magical world of fairy tales, but also enjoy cooking, crafts and walks, or invite their friends for a piece of pie during birthday parties in the castle. Nanny Fanny is in charge of everything.

The exhibition is a joint effort featuring traditional and contemporary art, symbolising the importance of African Art on the European tradition.

  • HISTORY OF LIEGE - CITY, CAPITAL, METROPOLIS -
    20/09/2017 > History of Liège
    A monumental book on the history of Liège in Belgium will be released on September 23. This volume meets a real need as the last general history of Liège is now more than 25 years old and hard to come by. It is being published simultaneously in French, English, Dutch and German by Les Grandes Conférences Liégeoises (GCLG) and Marot Publishers (Brussels) on the occasion of the University of Liège’s bicentenary. This sumptuous edition, written by a team of eminent scholars and experts under the leadership of Bruno Demoulin, will appeal not only to those with a keen interest in history but also to a wide general readership. With over 400 illustrations of historical documents, beautiful examples of artistic heritage, and photographs and maps made to order, the book gives the art and culture of Liège the showcase it deserves. Aptly titled History of Liège: City, Capital, Metropolis, this overview enables us to experience the history and the art of the city and its surrounding territory – the former prince-bishopric of Liège. It also provides insight into the institutional challenges the city faces and its privileged position in the heart of Europe, a position that is the key to a promising future.

    15/10/2017 > 21/01/2018 - EXHIBITION - Kingdoms of the Sea. Archipelago - La Boverie (Liège)
    Between 25 October and 21 January 2018, La Boverie will welcome the Europalia Festival to Liège with the Archipelago exhibition. An area of confluences and meetings, the Indonesian has always been one of the most important global trade hubs where Austronesian ships, Arab dhows, Chinese junks, Iberian caravels and other vessels from the East India Companies were moored before today’s container ships and oil tankers. The history of this archipelago is based on a multitude of links and connections, where the near and far coexist, brought to prominence by an omnipresent maritime world. The sea units more than it divides and the monsoon winds have made this hub a compulsory stop for foreign merchants, clerics and diplomats with their presence leaving traces in the myths, monuments, arts and traditions of modern Indonesia. Superimposed, mixed, reinterpreted by rich and complex societies, these foreign contributions have created multiple worlds whose relationship with the sea is finely coloured and carved. The discovery of these worlds is the focus of this exhibition covering 2,500 square metres with the sea as the link and almost 300 major works as markers of a history to be discovered and admired. The partners of this exceptional exhibition are, of course, the National Museum of Indonesia in Jakarta who agreed to allow these national treasures to leave Indonesia for the first time; the Royal Royal Museum of Mariemont (Belgium); the National Navy Museum in Paris, as well as various other French and Dutch institutions. Related events (music, shadow theatre, conferences) scheduled for La Boverie, offer visitors other perspectives. This exhibition complements the two other major events part of the Europalia festival taking place in Brussels, at BOZAR “Ancestors and Rituals” and “Power and other things”.

    22/10/2017 > 11/02/2018 - Exhibition - Patrick Marchal - Do you see the king?
    A Citizen of interstellar spaaaaaaace with sculptural ambitions and metallic structures, Patrick Marchal plays with colour and iconic symbols. What matters “is the message that is conveyed”. A silversmith-visual artist, creator of Unidentified Prestigious Objects with evocative names, he explodes classical conventions of jewellery, imposing himself through a critical approach and scathing humour. No one is bound by the impossible, so therefore everything is permitted. Marked by a visual culture, his work expresses a reality that is taken to the extreme and revealed in objects of finery. The metal or steel become bombs, cartridges…and adornments! Between here and on high? This is a game of assembling contemporary materials and emblematic images to produce brilliant creations. Patrick Marchal offers us highly coloured pieces, hallmarked by excellence. His work is refined and complex, in which we slowly see the intention overtaking the aestheticised practice. With Do You See the King? the CID is presenting the artist’s largest solo exhibition and at the same time challenging the emotional, social and cultural significance of jewellery.

    22/10/2017 > 14/01/2018 - Exhibition - On Paradise, Jompet Kuswidananto - MAC's (Grand-Hornu)
    As part of the Europalia festival which this year is celebrating Indonesia, the MAC’s will be presenting On Paradise, a brand new installation by the transdisciplinary artist Jompet Kuswidananto (born in 1976, lives and works in Yogyakarta). Questioning the connections between politics and religion, this work refers to a crucial episode in his country’s history: the rebellion by a section of the population against the colonial authorities in July 1888 in the region of Banten (Java). Using archive documents, Jompet Kuswidananto emphasises here the major role played by religious leaders who, interpreting a series of natural disasters around that time (the eruption of Krakatoa, the malaria and plague epidemics) as the portents of “the end of the world”, mobilised the Indonesians against the infidel colonials, calling for a “holy war” and thus promising them their place in “heaven”. But the installation specifically designed for the large room in the MAC’s is more related to theatre and phantasmagoria, playing out this troubled time through various, visually striking symbolic objects, such as the chandeliers strewn across the floorwhich singularly illustrate the underlying causes of the fall of the colonial power and a local aristocracy who had adopted its status symbols.

    22/10/2017 > 14/01/2018 - Exhibition - Cabinet d'amateurs - Jacques André - Buku-Buku
    Jacques André, born in 1969, like many other ‘inactive’ people of his generation, calls for the raising of cultural capital. He first defined himself as an “unemployed” artist, focusing on this issue in his “Onem blue” unemployment office-coloured interventions and installations. The colour was reproduced as mundanelyas possible, using paint-mixing machines in paint shops. Fascinated by the outburstsof May’68 and thesubsequent transition period towards postmodernity, Jacques André turned hisquestioning, critical gaze to themisrepresentationand commercialisation of the hippie utopia, notably by its less scrupulous heirs, the yuppies (young urban professionals), young executives orengineers who wereclose to the high finance ofupmarket metropolises in spite of their“cool” appearances.They in turn were themselves theforerunners of the ultimate fraud which engendered young, disillusioned multibillionaires, including traders and otherhigh-level swindlers,swanking about in limousinesinCosmopolis. Confessing that he“doesn’t know how to do anything except consume”, the artist has thus developed since the 1990sa conceptual artistic practice based on ready-mades that question our relationship with material possessions and property. Hismethod consists of multiple purchasing and accumulation of identical objects (most frequently books, CDs and DVDs, considered as “cultural indicators” of our times) and then exhibiting them—in carefullystructured piles orshowcases, onScandinavian shelves or heaped up under picture rails, etc. This work, which is also not averse to presenting great aesthetic value, thus deals ironically with the excesses of consumerism and misrepresentation, by the markets, of countercultural utopias. In its Rebel Rebelexhibition dedicated to rock, the MAC’s presented his Arters installation (i.e. “Repeat purchases, attempts at exhaustion and reconstitution of stocks”), an orderly accumulation of vinyl records in their sleeves. At a time when political and technological conditions are being established increasingly overtly, which will enable a vengeful eradication of critical thinking resulting notably from Debord’s situationist stances, Foucault’s socio-historic studies and Deleuze’s philosophical research, the MAC’s is now presenting an Amateur’s Cabinet containing a wider range of creations by this artist who has placed the “unemployed person”—who has nothing to lose or to gain—as “the best analyst of what society is offering to its consumers as values and objects.” (Jacques André, Voyage du temps perdu, unsigned introduction, Editions du Souffle, Brussels, 2003, not paginated).

    25/10/2017 > 21/01/2018 - EXHIBITION - KINGDOMS OF THE SEA. ARCHIPELAGO - LA BOVERIE (LIÈGE)
    Between 25 October and 21 January 2018, La Boverie will welcome the Europalia Festival to Liège with the Archipelago exhibition. An area of confluences and meetings, the Indonesian has always been one of the most important global trade hubs where Austronesian ships, Arab dhows, Chinese junks, Iberian caravels and other vessels from the East India Companies were moored before today’s container ships and oil tankers. The history of this archipelago is based on a multitude of links and connections, where the near and far coexist, brought to prominence by an omnipresent maritime world. The sea units more than it divides and the monsoon winds have made this hub a compulsory stop for foreign merchants, clerics and diplomats with their presence leaving traces in the myths, monuments, arts and traditions of modern Indonesia. Superimposed, mixed, reinterpreted by rich and complex societies, these foreign contributions have created multiple worlds whose relationship with the sea is finely coloured and carved. The discovery of these worlds is the focus of this exhibition covering 2,500 square metres with the sea as the link and almost 300 major works as markers of a history to be discovered and admired. The partners of this exceptional exhibition are, of course, the National Museum of Indonesia in Jakarta who agreed to allow these national treasures to leave Indonesia for the first time; the Royal Royal Museum of Mariemont (Belgium); the National Navy Museum in Paris, as well as various other French and Dutch institutions. Related events (music, shadow theatre, conferences) scheduled for La Boverie, offer visitors other perspectives. This exhibition complements the two other major events part of the Europalia festival taking place in Brussels, at BOZAR “Ancestors and Rituals” and “Power and other things”.

  • MUSEUM DE REEDE - ANTWERP -
    27/10/2017 > 04/12/2017 - Exhibition - Chun Kwang Young - Chaotic Harmony II
    With the exhibition Chaotic harmony II, Korean Chun Kwang Young is the first artist to be invited by Museum De Reede (MDR) since its official opening in June 2017. Chun Kwang Young’s work is an assembly of small triangular packets wrapped in ‘hanji’ paper, bringing to life imaginary abstract shapes defined by different colours and various volumes, thus creating an infinite abstract space. By using ‘hanji’ paper as the means of expression - ‘hanji’, a type of paper made from the bark of the home-grown mulberry tree -, Chun breathes a Korean spirit and soul in his art, while at the same time he offers his international public an oeuvre rooted in universal artistic tradition. Chun Kwang Young (°1944, Honcheon, South-Korea), lives and works in Seoul, Korea. Chun Kwang Young obtained a Bachelor Degree ‘Fine Arts’ at the Hongik University of Seoul in1968, followed by a Master’s at the Philadelphia Art College in the U.S in 1971. Chun Kwang Young was selected ‘Artist of the Year’ by the South Korean National Museum of Contemporary Art in 2001. He was awarded the Presidential Prize by the Korean Ministry of Culture in 2009. Works of art by this internationally renowned artist were acquired worldwide by numerous prestigious public and private collections. Earlier this year the Boghossian Foundation/Villa Empain in Brussels dedicated a one man show to the artist. Museum De Reede (MDR) in Antwerp shows ‘work on paper’ exclusively. For that reason the reliefs and sculptures created by this East-Asian artist fit in perfectly with the exhibition programme, not just because of their shape but also because of their content.

    27/10/2017 > 07/01/2018 - Exhibition - Jean Glibert - Peintre en bâtiment
    Since the late 1960s the painter Jean Glibert (Brussels, 1938) has pursued a creative logic in his work that is close to that of the architect. From the method of finalising the designs through to completion and reception by the client, his work displays the same principal characteristics. Like an architect, he too works on the constructive image of the environment. Push and pull, stresses and rhythms... are all present in his work. With Jean Glibert form and matter are not autonomous: colour is never a mere coating; light is always more than a matter of illumination. Form, matter, colour and light always play a role in the organisation and sensibility of the total space. Jean Glibert. Peintre en bâtiment is more than a retrospective. The exhibition was conceived in close cooperation with the artist, defining not only the scenographic device but also the visual interventions that establish a dialogue with the Centre for Fine Arts as designed by Victor Horta. Light is also shed on Jean Gilbert's methodologies through the objects and series of photographs presented at the exhibition. An initiative of the Ministry of Culture, produced by the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles (Contemporary Plastic Arts Directorate / Architecture Unit), in partnership with BOZAR and the CIAUD, with the backing of Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles International and Wallonie-Bruxelles Architecture. Curators: Emmanuel De Meulemeester, Michel De Visscher and Laurent Jacob

    BAM is to host, for the first time in Belgium, one of the largest and most important retrospectives ever dedicated to the great American photographer David LaChapelle. The exhibition looks back on his artistic output from the 1990s to the present day. After many years with the biggest stars of his generation as his subject matter, the artist began a new creative chapter with a series of more personal pieces highlighting his concerns regarding ecological and ethical issues affecting the world. More than 100 photographs will be exhibited – some in large format – touching on all aspects of his prolific output, together with music videos he has produced for well-known pop and rock singers.

Museum L, with 32,000 items in its collection, explores some new and unusual encounters that tell us about the world and our humanity. Art works are not the only thing on display: the museum also presents the UCL’s scientific collections. Natural history specimens, archaeological and ethnographic objects and scientific inventions are all on show in 2,580 m² of exhibition space at the heart of a building that is a landmark of modern Belgian architecture.

    THE BEARD PICTURES are violent, eerie, grotesque, lurid and crazed. They show a dream-like world of paranoia and destruction and madness. Their strange sickly colours and creeping, smashed up, absurd landscapes confront the viewer with relentless aggression. Gilbert & George take their places within THE BEARD PICTURES as intense, red, staring, empty-headed and sinister versions of themselves. In the half century that they have lived and worked together as Living Sculptures, embarked on a visionary journey through the modern world, always together and always alone, Gilbert & George have made fiercely singular Anti-Art that is poetic, primal and emotionally driven. Order and madness are held in tension, vaudevillian and nursery rhyme absurdity take on the air of paranormal

    21/11/2017 > 22/11/2017 - Topeng Cirebon et Medium, deux spectacles de danse au Théâtre de Liège
    Le Festival EUROPALIA place, cette année, l’Indonésie à l’honneur. Dans ce cadre, le Théâtre de Liège vous présente avec fierté deux spectacles exceptionnels le temps d’un soir. En premier lieu, Medium conçu par le danseur javanais Rianto. Les maîtres de sa région lui ont enseigné la danse lengger qui balaie les différences entre les genres. Le danseur perpétue cette tradition appelée à disparaître, ce petit bout de culture, cet espace mental intermédiaire entre le masculin et le féminin, les coutumes anciennes et les principes religieux, l’existence traditionnelle et la vie contemporaine. Lui succédera le spectacle Topeng Cirebon, où nous découvrirons les danses de masques de Losari, originaires de Cirebon situé sur la côte Nord de Java, enracinées dans la culture indigène et créées pour répandre la foi de l’Islam, il y a 400 ans. Dramatiques et costumées, elles se déroulent lors des récoltes et des célébrations villageoises pour rassembler et disperser les forces surnaturelles négatives. Ces chorégraphies hypnotiques sont imprégnées de mysticisme et transfèrent, raconte-t-on, des pouvoirs spéciaux à leurs porteurs. Deux ébouriffants dépaysements ! Spectacle coprésenté par le Concertgebouw Brugge et La Comète – Scène nationale de Châlons-en-Champagne Programme complet et dates de tournée sur www.europalia.be

    22/11/2017 > 25/02/2018 - Exhibition - From Belgium with light - Belgians almost invented light
    Even though it is not always apparent in our skies, lighting is a field in which both Belgian industry and designers excel. Since the early 1980s, the expansion of companies like Schréder and the creation of such brands as Light, Modular, Kréon, Wever&Ducré, Delta Light and Dark have opened up new opportunities for industrial designers and know-how in our country. In the space of a few decades, lighting design “made in Belgium” has forged an international name for itself, and even now is still going strong. Drawing on their technical knowledge of lighting, creators including Nathalie Dewez, Jos Devriendt, Alain Berteau, Sylvain Willenz and Frederik Delbart have oriented themselves towards a more intimate, personal notion of lighting, without surrendering to the temptation of ornamentation. Belgian lighting design proposes technical, efficient lighting alongside cutting-edge know-how and is tinged with emotions when certain designers address the subject.

From the fifties to the Moscow Olympic games (1980), the exhibition will feature iconic pieces of the Soviet lifestyle, examples of graphic and industrial design, technical drawings and prototypes made by Soviet designers from the Moscow Design Museum and private collections. The exhibition is divided into sections, each representing a certain aspect of a Soviet citizen’s life and material culture: childhood and leisure, sports and public events, visual communication and packaging design, furniture and household products, precision engineering and industrial production, as well as unique projects of the All-Union Research Institute of Technical Aesthetics (VNIITE). Now, when Russian design of the 21st century is being formed it is important to look back at the achievements of decades past and unveil the names of the designers who shaped the lifestyle of Soviet people.

    26/01/2018 > 24/02/2018 - Festival Pays de Danses - Focus on South Africa
    The Festival Pays de Danses, unique platform for the artists of the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, also dedicate a chunk of its programming to a land and to the specificities that make it. An pleasant way of varying the pleasures that the Théâtre de Liège works to offer you, certainly, but it is most and foremost the opportunity to apprehend the answers that other cultures bring to the many smokescreens that the world’s pace offers us. The seventh edition of the Festival does not break with this principal and offers you a focus on Southern Africa, confronted, among others, by powerful social changes, unrestrained capitalism, xenophobia and mass migrations. We will discover the diversity of the approaches and the plurality of the artistic processes that the dancers lay out on stage as an answer, resistance or refusal to the major changes that besiege them and that are ours to clear as much as theirs.

    04/03/2018 > 27/05/2018 - Exhibition - Adel Abdessemed - Otchi Tchiornie (Les Yeux Noirs)
    The formal, almost classical elegance of Adel Abdessemed’s sculptures collides with the rage, noise and anxiety of current events relayed by the media. New perceptions arise out of this “mystical” union of the light and shadows in our civilisation. Abdessemed’s artistic work is not really logical. Uncompromising and hard-hitting, he confers a quasi mythological dimension to the atrocities around the world, by transposing them into marble, ivory or metal: a young Vietnamese girl fleeing her burning village, a Jewish child from the Warsaw ghetto, a maltreated prisoner in Guantanamo… An eternal exile drifting between Eros and Thanatos, the cosmosand hubris, Abdessemed uses art history as an analytical tool to explore power and the media. In the manner of a surgeon, he examines, diagnoses and cuts into absolute fanaticisms, military violence and political controversies without concession. This “Phenomenology of cruelty” is developedlike blocks of unmitigated, powerful, overt sensation, which he leaves the spectator to define and appropriate. Presenting a series of new works at the Museum of Contemporary Arts, Adel Abdessemed offers us an “Archeology of the present” through our relationship to dominance, propaganda and current events.

    Exposition proposée en collaboration avec Wallonie-Bruxelles Design-Mode (WBDM) dans le cadre d’Intersections,la biennale en design contemporain du ADAM, Domestic Tales invite à regarder le design de manière différente, en bousculant la dichotomie entre sujet et objet. Un conte pour enfants, qui, grâce à une mise en scène conviviale et à des animations interactives, explique l’importance du design et de sa valeur culturelle. Mais surtout, une expérience, qui nous permet de mieux comprendre les objets qui nous entourent, dans nos habitations et dans nos villes, qui, comme les personnages d’une histoire, ont et donnent un sens à la vie. Cette exposition est un hommage à la vie, la nôtre et celle des objets de design : interfaces du quotidien, gardiens d’héritages précieux du passé, agents d’expériences sociales et esthétiques, modèles de production et d’économie durables, vecteurs de scénarii innovants pour un futur meilleur.

    Exhibition in cooperation with Wallonia-Brussels Design-Mode (WBDM) as part of the biennale in contemporary design of the ADAM. ‘Domestic Tales’ invites to look at design in a different way, hustling the dichotomy between subject and object. A tale for children, which, thanks to an open staging and interactive animations, explains the importance of design and its cultural value. But above all, an experience that allows us to better understand the objects that surround us, in our homes and in our cities, which, as the characters in a story, have meaning and give meaning to life. This exhibition is a tribute to life, ours and that of the design objects: everyday interfaces, custodians of valuable legacies of the past, social and aesthetic experiences, production models and sustainable products, vectors of innovative scenarios for a better future.

    01/09/2018 > Exhibition - Kartell: A Tribute to Ettore Sottsass
    Within the framework of the programme 2017, ADAM – Brussels Design Museum will be to hosting a tribute to Ettore Sottsass, realized in collaboration with the Kartell Museo and shown during the Autumn and Winter 2017. This exhibition will be part of the Brussels Design September festival. The exhibition “Kartell. A Tribute to Ettore Sottsass” will present a comprehensive overview of the project by Ettore Sottsass work for Kartell. The exhibition will be mainly focused on the collection of objects he designed for Kartell in 2004. In 2014 Kartell paid tribute to the master of design Ettore Sottsass with a collection of original projects he designed 10 years earlier but that had never been created. With six vases, two stools and a lamp, the collection expresses a marked affinity with the aesthetics of Memphis, the famous design collective founded by Sottsass. With post-futurist volumes, the stools and vases have bright colours and express many aspects of Sottsass’ approach to design. The same colour palette is repeated in the “Daisy” hanging lamp with an unusual application of rectangular plastic shapes to a central disk. The exhibition is also enriched by references to the environment created by Sottsass on the occasion of the exhibition “Italy the New Domestic landscape” at MoMA (1972) and to the collection “Kartell goes Sottsass. A Tribute to Memphis”: chairs by Philippe Starck, Patricia Urquiola and Piero Lissoni covered with fabrics designed by Michele de Lucchi, Nathalie du Pasquier, and Ettore Sottsass himself and created in collaboration with Memphis.

    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.
