"The Gillion Crowet Collection"
 

Sunday, 30 May at 4pm 

Patiently constituted in the 1960's by Anne-Marie Crowet and Roland Gillion, this collection of masterpieces from Mucha, Gallé, Majorelle, Khnopff, Mossa, Wolfers, Delville and Horta contributed to put Symbolism and Art Nouveau back on the forefront. Precious woods, together with the most refined of glassworks embrace the sphinxes' smiles and the fantasmagorical fluidity and dynamism of the line. Everything is luxury, opulence and quiet, and the accomplishment of Art with a capital A.

"Louis & I"


Saturday, 05 June at 4pm


Louis Tenaerts (1898-1994) was a prolific architect and builder. Between 1922 and 1939 he claimed to have designed and built 1,635 houses and apartment buildings. His remarkable business flair and chameleon-like ability to follow fashion, adapt Modernist designs and use newly fashionable materials led to a highly successful career in which he mined the rich range of Art Deco shapes and forms to create efficient yet joyous buildings that set the tone for several districts of Brussels. While his "ocean-liner" houses and apartment buildings are among the best-known Art Deco buildings in the city, very little was known about Tenaerts himself until now! This educational and richly illustrated exhibition evokes not only the architectural designs of Louis Tenaerts, but also the urban development of Brussels in the inter-war period.

Guided tour of the exhibition
"Salon 1910 and other pre-war cars"


Sunday, 06 June at 2pm
 

Did you know …

  • that the magnificent building that houses Autoworld since more than 30 years welcomed the first ever Motor and Cycle Show? It was from 1902 through to 1934, when the halls housing the present Musées de l’Automobile et de l’Air were joined. (at that time the Esplanade did not exist).
  • that the cars were tailor-made to order – somewhat similar to designer clothes? The future owner would purchase a chassis from the car brand and then call on a coachbuilder and together with him define the bodywork.

All that, and many other things, will be exhibited and explained in the new 1000m² zone: “Salon 1910”. Keeping to a period atmosphere, created thanks to photographs and reproductions, the visitor will be able to immerse himself in the first Salon. A showroom exhibiting chassis and coach-built cars, numerous blown up photographs, videos of the period and, it goes without saying, some thirty cars as those sold at the Motor Show during the beginning of the last century will liven up the zone looking to be eminently educational.

With “Salon 1910”, Autoworld fully reacquaints itself with its history, whilst enhancing the museum’s right wing.

Guided tour of the exhibition
"The book as a witness of the transition from Art Nouveau to Art Deco"


Sunday, 06 June at 4pm

Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles are strongly represented in the decorative arts, especially in bookbinding and cover illustrations. Famous architects and designers such as Henry van de Velde and Pierre Legrain designed motifs, lines and shapes for book covers and illustrations. In this exhibition of around twenty books from its collection, the Bibliotheca Wittockiana will show visitors the transition from Art Nouveau to Art Deco. This is an exceptionally rare chance for members of the public to see these books, which are normally stored in the reserve collection.

Guided tour of the exhibition
"The Invitation of Victor H"


Cancelled

How can we be inspired by Victor Horta without slavishly copying him? Thirty-eight artists took up the challenge of creating works of art that echo Art Nouveau architecture. Now the Horta Museum is hosting a selection of ten of these artists to present their works. This illuminating dialogue between the works and the building is completed by the expert commentaries of members of the Horta Museum and BeCraft teams during a late-evening guided tour.
