10-01-2017 | The René Magritte Museum expands to become a new Abstract Art Museum

Plenty of events will commemorate the death of the surrealist painter throughout this year: guided tours, a brand new audio tour, a special Magritte beer... And there's even more. The Museum crew is currently working on a new project: an adjacent Museum for Abstract Art. 

The Museum for Abstract Art will be built right next to the surrealist painter's former house in Jette, Brussels. Obviously, this is not a coincidence. The special bond between surrealism and abstract art was always there. In fact, the latter was René Magritte's first form of expression. Influenced by friends such as Victor Servranckx and Pierre-Louis Flouquet, Magritte dedicated a lot of works to abstract art. Later on, he became famous for the enygmatic surrealism in his works. The neighbouring museums will offer visitors a unique trip through two important avant-garde movements of the 20th century, with the surrealist painter Magritte as a focal point of the whole experience. 

Updates on the further development of the project are to be found on the museum's wordpress (French or Dutch).
