New Cultural Museum at Villa Bernasconi in Cernobbio – 26 November 2017

After a few months of restoration works, the Villa Bernasconi, a historic residence built in Liberty style in 1906 by the entrepreneur Davide Bernasconi, will be open to visitors around a new project.

The "Liberty Tutti" project, led by the municipality of Cernobbio, aims to create an innovative cultural center. A commitment that aims to promote this Liberty jewel and to offer it to the public in a new way, with innovative management methods involving the participation of young people and the application of modern technologies. The intervention aims to open a new kind of museum, a "house that speaks" to tell its story and its connection with the territory through interactive inspirations, multimedia contents and multisensorial experiences.

Exhibition Paul and his brothers at the Halles Saint-Géry in Brussels – from 8 September to 22 November 2017

Architect Paul Hamesse worked for more than 40 years with his brothers, Georges and Léon, in their office in Saint-Gilles/Sint-Gillis. A student of Hankar and Chambon, passionate about art and a regular on the Brussels artistic scene, Paul had a clear taste for decoration and developed a very personal signature style that he applied to even the smallest of details, from façades to door handles.

Brussels was the main location for their creative energy, which evolved in line with the styles, techniques and materials of their time.

Aimed at families, the exhibition Paul and his brothers opens the doors to a buzzing radiant city where the know-how of Paul and his brothers, virtuosos of decoration, was implemented in some 200 creations scattered throughout the territory.

Organisation: Association pour l’Étude du Bâti (APEB), with the support of the Monuments and Sites Directorate of the Brussels-Capital Region.

Exhibition Diversity of architecture – Architecture of diversity in Brussels – from 5 September to 15 November 2017

Belgium, and especially Brussels, is a real hub for the spread of architectural ideas, and our architects are precursors and advisers as well as imitators and interpreters.

The aim here is to show to which extent the circulation of ideas and forms contributed to the richness and diversity of the architecture in Brussels, such as the Art Nouveau style, and also how Brussels and its architects had an influence beyond our borders.

The exhibition offers thus tools to understand the various influences that we can find in the architecture in Brussels and learn to read façades that we can find every day. It is realized on the basis of documents preserved in the collections of the CIVA Foundation.

From 05/09 to 30/09/2017 the exhibition is presented at the Bibliothèque francophone d’Ixelles.

For your information, here is the schedule of the next communes that will host the exhibition:

The Leopold Museum as the seat of the largest and most important Schiele collection in the world is pleased to invite you to the second Egon Schiele Symposium to get an international overview of the state of current research on Egon Schiele and deal inspired her.

The versatility of Egon Schiele's art, his personal mythology which is expressed in his (self)portraits, the representations of landscapes or trees and houses, count now obviously amongst the great artistic achievements of the 20th century. Schiele has become such a familiar name that it is so to say necessary to rediscover his work from time to time. The symposium at the Leopold Museum gives the chance to look at the original works of art discussed during the academic lectures, to deepen them, as Egon Schiele called: "See if you can, - in a work of art"
