The MODERNS. Duos. A selection from the collections of KMSKA and the Province of Antwerp

print

Date 21/09/2013 - 20/04/2014

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

The series highlights art from the 19th and 20th centuries. For this jubilee edition, we have made a selection of the finest pieces in the art collection of the Province, which for most of the time remains hidden to the public. In this show, the selected pieces enter into a dialogue with paintings, sculptures, drawings and collages from KMSKA’s own holdings.

Visual aspects

The exhibition is comprised of 65 pieces by 50 artists. Items from the collection of the Province are combined with pendants from the KMSKA collection. The choices were made associatively and based primarily on visual aspects. Some of the pairings consist of work by the same author or belonging to the same genre. In other instances, the pieces share formal aspects: colour, line, form and composition. The exhibition features work by, among others, Rik Wouters, Emile Claus, Jozef Peeters, Jan Cox, Koen van den Broek and Anne-Mie van Kerckhoven.

Jongbloed! looks forward to welcoming you back!

Until 26 January 2014, the arrangement of pieces on display is a joint-design by the curators of KMSKA and the province of Antwerp. From 1 February, viewers can admire the same pieces in an alternative presentation designed by Jongbloed!, the youth crew of KMSKA. Jongbloed! is the museum’s think and do tank for youngsters aged between 16 and 24. The exhibition will encompass the same pieces (with some additions), but the underlying story and the perspective will be quite different. Tickets for The MODERNS. Duos purchased before 27 January 2014 are also valid for the presentation by Jongbloed! that will run from 1 February to 20 April 2014.
