Five Modern Masterpieces

in dialogue with collections

To the top

This exhibition was held at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium from 18 May to 27 August 2016. In an original and innovative presentation, five masterpieces from the collection of modern and contemporary art are narrated by a selection of paintings, drawings, sculptures from other artists of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. The visitor is invited to make connections between the different artworks, to understand the various influences, the context, the background, the coincidence of themes. What was perceived as a masterpiece yesterday might not necessarily be perceived as such tomorrow. For the first time, to enrich this experience, a multimedia cylinder (“digital experience“) offers enhanced content – videos, digital art, touchscreen table, high definition projections, … – for a comprehensive approach to the artistic creation.

The video introduces the concept of digital experience combined with the exhibition.


 

14-18. Rupture or Continuity?

 

To the top

The exhibition 14-18. Rupture or Continuity? (from September 29th 2016 to January 22nd 2017) delves into the vast collection of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium and explores changes and constants of Belgian Art between 1910-1925. Artists and artistic movements with a significant influence, like Constant Permeke’s Expressionism, Jules Schmalzigaug’s Futurism, or even Jozef Peeters’ Pure Plastic,  are shown side by side in this display, immersing the visitor in an era of artistic and political upheaval.

Digital Experience, the brand new multimedia cylinder, provides an interactive context for the works of art on display. The innovating device offers a global vision of Belgian artistic creation in the days of World War I, via historic documents, videos, audio recordings and artwork reproductions.

Two tracks present the main works of this period. A timeline was realised by the team of cultural mediation of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium (EDUCATEAM). The set was accompanied by a soundtrack for a complete immersion of the visitor in the digital device.

Below, the video of the time line created for this exhibition:

SMCA CURATIONS

Contemporary Antiquities

 

Antiquity has a universal aesthetic, one that can be understood all over the world.  An approach to this aesthetic through the expressive eye of contemporary artists is the main concept and allure to enjoy the “Contemporary Antiquities”.

The Greek antiquity, a beloved theme by all the humanities, an aesthetic more recognizable that any other, is presented via the modern art lenses, creating new images based on ancient  tradition.

“Contemporary Antiquities” digital exhibition is based not only on image, but also on the history of styles.  A concept more recognizable than any other, that is both highly intellectual and most popular and understandable to big audiences and especially to tourists.

This theme proposed by SMCA received content support also from RMFAB.
