Jimmy Kets, Sint Gummarus 2


From 3 April 2015 to 6 March 2016 at Stedelijk Museum Lier.


The year-long exhibition entitled Saint³. Force of Habit. Jimmy Kets in Bruegel Land looks at religious traditions such as processions, kermises and pilgrimages in works from the collections of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp (KMSKA) and the Municipal Museums.

Photographer Jimmy Kets supplements this presentation with reportages of surviving traditions relating to saints.

However ancient and pious the theme, what we essentially see in the photographs in Saint³ is ourselves and how we relate to the past today. What Kets captures is that second in human nature that normally passes us by unnoticed.

 Abraham Ortelius, under the spell of classical antiquity


From 24 April to 16 August 2015 at the Rockox House Museum.

As part of The Golden Cabinet, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp and the Rockox House Museum are organizing a number of small-scale exhibitions. Abraham Ortelius, under the spell of classical antiquity is the fourth such exhibition in the series. 

Ortelius was a geographer and a friend of Nicolaas Rockox. He is generally recognised as having created the first modern atlas.

This exhibition will include a range of historical maps together with some printed works showing Ortelius’s reconstructions. Visitors will be able to follow how he collected his knowledge and then visualised it in map book form.
