From 25 September 2014 until 4 January 2015 in Bozar Brussels


Sensation and Sensuality is an exhibition by the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp, BOZAR Brussels and the Royal Academy of Arts in London that explores the artistic legacy of Peter Paul Rubens. Over the centuries, Rubens has been admired and even envied for his great sense of colour and composition as well as his painterly technique. His work has been a rich source of inspiration to many a talented artist.

This exhibition explores the artistic legacy of Peter Paul Rubens in six thematic chapters: violence, power, lust, compassion, elegance and poetry. In each of these chapters, curator Nico Van Hout sets out in search of connections between Rubens and a variety of subsequent artists.

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.
