CINEMATEK - Exhibition

Lines and Moving Images


Art Nouveau and Art Deco on-screen

-
From March 1 to March 31

In honour of the BANAD festival, Cinematek is organizing an exposition on the subject of moving images of the art nouveau and art deco heritage in Brussels. The film archive itself is closely related to this theme, as the museum is situated in what used to be the hall for decorative arts of Victor Horta's Palais des Beaux Arts. Come and discover how both art movements influenced the medium of film in all its aspects and how several directors have tried to capture its spirit on moving images.

Hungarian Art Nouveau: Artists' Colony of Gödöllő

-
From March 21 to May 2

 
Őriné Nagy Cecília – curator


Joint exhibition of the Balassi Institute in Brussels and the City Museum of Gödöllő about the Artists' Colony of Gödöllö.

In 1901 Aladár Körösfői-Kriesch together with his friend and brother-in-law, Sándor Nagy, founded their colony in Gödöllő. Their principles summed up what they learned and experienced during their Roman and Parisian studies, but also relied on the heritage of the English Pre-Raphaelites, endorsing John Ruskin and Willian Morris's intentions to renew art. Gödöllő was a popular royal holiday resort at that time, its beautiful natural environment, its good transportation, its proximity to Budapest proved to be an appropriate place for the artists to settle.

The newly come artists were creating in all fields of art. Their intention was to make life more beautiful by their creations. Besides their major works of art, they also designed unique, artistically-designed objects of applied arts. They created an exquisite work of wall-decorations (fresco, glass painting, mosaic sgraffiti art), which made their efforts even more widespread. We can find their most beautiful works in Budapest, as well as in cities of the former Austro - Hungarian Monarchy.

They lived in a community, in which we can recognise the lifestyle-reforming efforts of the beginning of the 20th century. Vegetarian meals, everyday sport, reformed clothing, natural medicine, classical and contemporary literary readings, home- concerts were all parts of their daily lives.

The joint exhibition of the Balassi Institute in Brussels and the City Museum of Gödöllő wishes to draw attention to a special section of the Hungarian Art Nouveau, when presenting the Artists' Colony of Gödöllő, bringing new both in their lifestyle and art.

Héliopolis

Du 28 mars au 18 août 2019

The "City of the Sun". From Iunu to Masr El Gedīda

The Boghossian Foundation highlights Heliopolis, the birthplace of a new city built entirely from scratch by the Belgian industrialist Edouard Empain at the dawn of the twentieth century. Now a part of the vast Egyptian capital, Heliopolis was born of a dream, one which has always brought to mind the city of the same name in Ancient Egypt. Nearly a hundred Egyptian antiquities, ancient works and 20th century objects have been selected by the curators Marie-Cécile Bruwier and Florence Doyen. The exhibition invites the visitor to rediscover the influence of the ancient city as well as the the famous Baron's founding company. A visionary and patron of the arts, Baron Empain was also Louis Empain's father, who built the Villa Empain.

Open everyday, except on Mondays: from 11 am till 18 pm.

Last entry at 5.15 pm.
