Campaign image High Horizon
 

From 27 April 2014 until 19 March 2015 at the Municipal Museum of Lier.

 

An exhibition project centred on the universal visual idiom of Pieter Bruegel, his direct followers, and contemporary artists as chroniclers of their ages.

High Horizon. Bruegel Land, Early 21st Century is conceived as a dynamic event incorporating performances, screenings and lectures throughout the year.

The work of such present-day artists as Philip Aguirre y Otegui, Kati Heck, Rinus Van de Velde and Ria Pacquée reactivates and contemporises the historical scenes of Bruegel and his artistic heirs.

 
Flat-cum-studio visit of Jozef Peeters

From 8 September 2013 you can visit the artist Jozef Peeters' flat-cum-studio. 

Jozef Peeters (1895-1960) was one of the first abstract artists in Belgium. He lived in a four-room corner flat on De Gerlachekaai in Antwerp with his wife and two children.

Although the façade of the building was given a contemporary revamp in the 1990s, in Peeters' studio flat it is as if time has stood still. Which is fortunate, because in the 1920 he turned it into an impressive three-dimensional painting. 
 

Jan Sanders van Hemessen’s painting of Saint Jerome

From 18 January 2014 until 13 April 2014 at the Rockox’ House Museum.

 

Jan Sanders van Hemessen’s painting of Saint Jerome occupied a place of honour in Rockox’s art gallery or groote saleth and is currently the only work from Rockox’s original collection that is in situ in the museum that used to be his house. This second small-scale exhibition within the context of The Golden Cabinet attempts to determine Saint Jerome’s place in the pictorial art of the Renaissance and the Baroque in Western Europe.

For this exhibition we have updated the webapp www.hetguldencabinet.be with a selection of works that are on view at the Rockox’ House museum
