Arenberg Festival in Leuven

From 20/10/2018 to 20/01/2019 - CPI : 24/10/2018

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
