SUMMER EXHIBITIONS

FOR A CULTURAL GETAWAY IN BRUSSELS

Travelling to Brussels this summer? We have selected 5 temporary exhibitions not to be missed for an immersive journey in the world of varied and unique artists.

  • Portrait of a Lady
    Learn about the representation of women and how they have been viewed throughout the ages, through 85 works of art from the Paleolithic to contemporary art, from the East to the West. Let yourself be carried away by five themes: At the origin; Women in an interior; Nude: model, muse; Portraits and self-portraits; The gender question. You will also have the opportunity to learn more about the career of several exceptional women. The representations you will see are mostly from the male perspective, as the art world was almost exclusively male.

  • Bulles de Louvre
    Discover the famous Louvre Museum through the eyes of twenty comic book authors who have admired the rooms, collections and visitors to the museum and have been inspired to create their own works. This immersive tour of 150 works is based on three themes: how the authors revisit the history of the museum and its collections, how they recreate daily life and observe the public, and how they use poetic expression to magnify the works: a real journey between the arts, genres and periods.
