A triple celebration with 3 unique exhibitions. The Horta Museum is celebrating 3 anniversaries: 100 years of the sale of the Horta house, 50 years of the inauguration of the museum and 30 years of restoration.
To celebrate the museum will unveil three new exhibitions on March 15th until June 30th. The three exhibitions related to these anniversaries will take place simultaneously in the three buildings of the museum, namely the Horta house, the workshop and the extension.
The Horta Museum is located in the private house and studio of Victor Horta (1861-1947).
Collecting, accumulating, concealing, revealing. Victor Horta’s personal collection – Japanese art and rare marble – will be recreated as displayed in his private home. A remarkable collection of Art Nouveau furniture, on public display for the first time, will be exhibited in his adjacent studio. And finally, in the exhibition hall, the act of collecting itself will be explored in depth, through contemporary embroidery portraying present-day collectors.
In the wing extension, different works from 12 collectors will be displayed by the visual artist Elisabeth Horth.
Meanwhile, in the workshop of Victor Horta, the collection “Belgian Art Nouveau”, reunited by the young Brussels collector Jonathan Mangelinckx, will show major works by Paul Hankar, Henry Van Velde, Victor Horta and Gustave Serrurier-Bovy.
