Petrus Alamire

From 19 August 2015 to 22 november 2015 in the Cathedral of Our Lady.

Petrus Alamire’s music manuscripts are among the most beautifully illuminated manuscripts of the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance. They are not only important for the history of art, but also exceptionally valuable to the history of music. A corpus of 51 manuscripts, currently scattered right across Europe, have been digitised and studied over the last few years by the Alamire Foundation.The exhibition displays the choirbooks and chansonniers held by the Royal Library of Belgium in Brussels and Mechelen City Archive in all their glory. Works of art dating from the same period from the collection of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp (KMSKA), illustrate more of the story behind the manuscripts.


Jimmy Kets, Sint-Gummarus 2

The latest edition of Breugel Land in Lier presents photographs by Jimmy Kets.

The year-long exhibition entitled Saint³ - Force of Habit 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 Lier (Stedelijke Musea Lier). Kets supplements this presentation with reportages of surviving traditions relating to saints. Like Pieter Bruegel, the photographer has a keen eye when it comes to reproducing everyday life.
