Ready to Join?

Let's enjoy a museum visit again.

The spirit of this exhibition visit is an easy-going mindset. It is for those who want to channel their inner zen through experiencing art, away from a competitive, high-impact environment.

Please respect the COVID-19 safety rules: wear a face mask and social distance of 1,5 m.

You need to RESERVE your place for the Protected content time slot on the civa website (see above). For some strange reason the reservation only works in fr and nl, not in en(glish).

One century ago there was a flourishing avant-garde in Brussels. In Protected content , Pierre and Victor Bourgeois, Pierre-Louis Flouquet, Karel Maes and Georges Monier launched the periodical 7 Arts, which would turn out to be of major influence on the art scene. The five Brussels residents championed the plastique pure (geometric abstraction) and stood for an synthesis of all art forms: painting, sculpture, decorative art, literature, music and film, all of which where looked at from an architectural and urbanistic point of view. They were swiftly joined by important artists like Magritte, Servranckx, De Boeck, Peeters, Gailliard, Baugniet, Hoste, Jasinski and Gaspard.

I am looking forward to enjoying this exhibition with you.

If you like we can go for a drink / snack afterwards.
