Design Museum Brussels – Chaise. Stoel. Chairs. Defining Design

26-03-2021> 29-08-2021

The Design Museum Brussels offers to rethink the concept of an everyday object: the chair. By bringing together a selection of 100 chairs from various collections (including the Design Museum London), the exhibition retraces a whole universe of design from the end of the 19th century to the present day through an object that at first sight seems banal.

Celebrate the city and living together with the exhibition project BXL UNIVERSEL II:! 11 artists and 6 Brussels-based citizen organisations are joining forces to mark the 15th anniversary of the CENTRALE by proposing a space for the exchange and sharing of artistic practices. While the first part took place in 2016 shortly after the Brussels attacks, this one takes place in the midst of the pandemic: two powerful moments that will certainly have influenced our vision and that of the artists of the city.

Love songs - Art et marges musée

06.05.2021 - 12.09.2021

The Art et marges museum honours outsider sound creation. Less known to the public than pictorial productions, outsider music is no less abundant, it touches on all styles and has managed to remain almost beyond the reach of so-called good taste! And what could be better than love, tragic and magical, heartbreaking but happily exciting, to give voice to?
