Symposium The interiors of Art nouveau period : analyse, restore, make accessible at CIVA and the Palais des Académies in Brussels

29/11/2019 > 30/11/2019

The Réseau Art Nouveau Network, a European network for the study, protection and enhancement of the Art Nouveau heritage, is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year., founding member of RANN, is hosting an international symposium in Brussels, co-organised by RANN and in partnership with the Horta Museum and CIVA, on the theme “The interiors of Art nouveau period : analyse, restore, make accessible”.

The research and progress of our knowledge of Art Nouveau has always been one of RANN’s primary objectives. If Art Nouveau is accessible to everyone in the street itself and while the Art Nouveau facades are the ornament of many European cities, the interiors arouse both from the academic world as from the general public many questions related to their accessibility, to their knowledge, to the refined restorations that they require.

This topic of interiors has not yet been scientifically exploited transversally in Europe; the aim of this symposium is to bring about a confrontation on research practices, understanding, conservation and enhancement of Art Nouveau interiors, in order to identify new research perspectives.

A “off” programme of visits related to Art Nouveau interiors and Art Nouveau heritage in Brussels next to the symposium will be also presented!
