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 PacquƩe reactivates and contemporises the historical scenes of Bruegel and his artistic heirs.

From 10 May to 31 August 2014 at Koningin Fabiolazaal.

This is the sixth in a series of exhibitions on The MODERNS at Koningin Fabiolazaal, a venue run by the Province of Antwerp.

As the 20th century progressed, there were artists who maintained that trueness to nature was the best approach to capturing the beauty of the world. However, a painting consists of shapes and colours on a flat surface. While some artists ventured cautiously along the road towards abstraction, others chose to explore whether the rules of modernism allowed for an element of realism.
