Exposition Collector collection at the Horta Museum in Brussels
15/03/2019 > 30/06/2019
On the occasion of its triple anniversary – 100 years of the sale of the house by Horta himself, 50 years of the inauguration of the museum, 30 years of restoration – the Horta Museum (Saint-Gilles) unveils three new exhibitions highlighting one facet unknown by the architect, Victor Horta, collector. The three exhibitions take place simultaneously from March 15 to June 30, 2019 in the three buildings of the museum, a first in the museum’s history: the Horta house, the workshop and the extension.
With the collection as its main theme, the exhibition brings a different light to each of the three spaces of the museum. In the extension (wing recently annexed to museum), Art Nouveau works from private collections are put in abyss by the visual artist Elisabeth Horth. In the studio of Victor Horta, a collection pioneered by the young Brussels collector Jonathan Mangelinckx, with Major works of Serrurier-Bovy, Paul Hankar and other creators of Art new. Finally, in a totally new way, the decor of the verandah and the Salon of music of the house is reconstituted as originally, with oriental objects and Far East similar to those collected by Victor Horta.
