Opening of Trink Hall Museum (Liege)

From 20/03/2020 - CPI : 19/03/2020

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.
