In 2023, Brussels celebrated Art Nouveau through a numerous activities and exceptional exhibitions. Thanks to the Art Nouveau Pass, almost 7,000 visits were made to museums and exhibitions.
This year, our museums explored various sub-themes, such as the relationship between artists and nature, or the links between this revolutionary artistic movement and its time, particularly, the colonialism.
Several venues have also been made accessible to the public after extensive renovations. This is the case of Lab·An, the Art Nouveau laboratory next door to the breathtaking Hotel Van Eetvelde, Victor Horta’s most ambitious project.
The Maison Hannon in Saint-Gilles also opened its doors before the summer, revealing a Franco-Belgian Art Nouveau style with magnificent frescoes.
The year is drawing to a close, but the love of Art Nouveau lives on!
There are still plenty of exhibitions to discover in 2024, including the Victor Horta and the Grammar of Art Nouveau exhibition at Bozar, the Privat Livemont exhibition at the Maison Autrique, the Josef Hoffmann exhibition at the Art and History Museum, and the Comic Art Nouveau exhibition at the Belgian Comic Strip Centre.
Brussels’ exceptional heritage remains, and the Art Nouveau houses and museums are permanently open to those who wish to enjoy their beauty. Discover them here.
