Expat Culture Club - Musée d'Ixelles

 

 

 

 

 

Tucked away in the neighborhood Ixelles you can find a museum with a history of over 120 years. The lovely Musée d’Ixelles houses an attractive art collection of paintings, sculptures, etches, drawings, and posters, spanning the past five centuries.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although we had planned to come on Saturday 29 June and have a guided tour, we will now go on Wednesday evening 26 June as it will be a * free * evening to welcome the two temporary exhibitions: Chat Noir and Mig Quinet. However, the rest of the museum is also open, so it's an excellent opportunity to see the rest of the permanent collections.

 

Chat Noir: arts and pleasures of the belle époque

This exhibition explores the literary, artistic and musical atmosphere of the famous Black Cat cabaret of Montmartre in Paris during the Belle Époque, hosted by the audacious Rodolphe Salis (1851- 1897). Works from Toulouse-Lautrec, Edouard Vuillard, Théophile- Alexandre Steinlen, Nabis and the Symbolists immerse you in the bohemian world of Parisian nightlife and art at the turn of the century. (source: website Musée d'Ixelles)

 

Mig Quinet

A prominent female figure in Belgian lyrical abstraction during the twentieth century, MIG QUINET produced work that is deep, fiery and poetic. Her paintings clearly display freedom in the use of colour, a vibrant touch, tentative gestures and still live on in today's modern art in Belgium. This exhibition invites you to rediscover the powerful and delicate art of this extraordinary artist. (source: website Musée d'Ixelles)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We will meet between 18.30 and 19.00 in the "cafetaria" of the Musée d'Ixelles. It's nothing more than a room with a coffee and snack machine, but it will serve the purpose :-)  If the weather is nice we may also wait outside, so look around for us!  This is a free event, and there will be no guided tour! We will have drink at Bar du Marché at Place Flagey afterwards.

Directions: From Flagey go up Rue Malibran, then 4th street left (Rue Sans Souci), and first street left (Rue Jean van Volsem), the museum is after 50 meters on your left. From Rue du Trône / Avenue de la Couronne, walk down Rue Malibran towards Flagey and take the 2nd street on the right (Rue Sans Souci), etc.

    Dear all, I am sorry but I will have to pre- or postpone this one as I will be out of town. I will let you know whether we go there on Saturday morning, or we wait another month until the new collection is in (it closes down on the 27th of May). I'll get back to you asap.
