From 1 February to 20 April 2014, Jongbloed!, the youth crew of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp (KMSKA), will be presenting its take on the exhibition The MODERNS. Duos.

The KMSKA exhibition The MODERNS. Duos ran in the latter part of 2013 at Koningin Fabiolazaal in Antwerp. The displays had been arranged by curators from KMSKA and the Province of Antwerp. However, this was just one way of showing the items to the public. As of 1 February, the museum's youth crew Jongbloed! will be presenting its take on the original exhibition.

The idea of Jongbloed! creating its own exhibition came during a brainstorming session of the museum’s youth crew. KMSKA was pleased to give them the opportunity, so that now, for the very first time in its history, the museum is proudly presenting a show designed entirely by a team of youngsters.

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
