8 temporary exhibitions to see at the Nocturnes this September

Brussels museums are leaving the light on every Thursday evening this autumn, between 5PM and 10PM, the ideal occasion to make some discoveries as unusual as they are timeless or to walk the temporary exhibitions of Brussels at a more than advantageous rate.

Here are the 8 temporary exhibitions to see in September!

Amy Winehouse. A Family Portrait – Jewish Museum of Belgium

Brussels Museums Nocturnes’ free opening in the Sablon district will honor Amy for one last hurrah. With ‘Amy Winehouse – A Family Portrait’, the Jewish Museum of Belgium gently opens a new door to the most personal aspects of the British singer. 09/13/2018

D’Ieteren & Patrick Van der Stricht – “Greeting Cards” – D’Ieteren Gallery

Next to 100 exceptional cars, the D’Ieteren Gallery is displaying drawings by Belgian architect, illustrator and car enthusiast Patrick van der Stricht. Humor, architectural perspectives and retro romance are on the program. 09/20/2018

Summer Collection #3 – art & marges museum

Colorful, abundant and (why not) scorching, this art & marge exhibition helps you discover the rich collection of outsider art of the art & marges museum! On this occasion, you can meet some of the artists on display and have a t-shirt printed with your favorite work. 09/20/2018

Ernest and Célestine – Red Cloister Abbey Art Centre

Familiar with internationally recognized children’s books or their 2012 film adaptation, do not miss the free opening of the exhibition “Ernest and Célestine at the Red Cloister” in the purely idyllic setting of the abbey! 09/27/2018

Beyond Borders – Boghossian Foundation – Villa Empain

Dedicated to the themes of borders, identities and affiliations, this poetic, political and, of course, visual appealing exhibition creates a link between the works of some forty artists, from Europe and the Middle East and the Maghreb, in the heart of an Art Deco masterpiece in Brussels. 09/27/2018

Syphilis. The Great Simulator. Baudelaire and Others. – ULB – Museum of Medicine

The rather explicit exhibition of the Museum of Medicine ‘Syphilis’ questions manners, morals, shame and sexuality from the perspective of famous personalities who have likely suffered because from it. Very surprising! 09/27/2018

Collector of Traces + Contentious Moods – Museum of Sewers

Under your feet wait kilometres of sewers and a museum dedicated to them. Explore the undergrounds, discover the evolutionary installation of the Brussels artist PAROLE and a well-publicised exhibition on public toilet graffiti! 09/27/2018

Don’t miss out on the whole calendar of the Nocturnes, permanent and temporary exhibitions included.
