Musea Brugge is a big name in the international museum world and will once again be offering a number of must-see exhibitions this year. From famous works by Flemish Masters Van Eyck and Memling to new creations inspired by the permanent collection and featuring artists from a variety of disciplines.
- Van Eyck in Bruges
This exhibition is in the newly renovated Groeninge Museum and is centred around two wonderful works by the Burgundian court painter Jan van Eyck. His life and work in Bruges is brought to life by authentic documents and other artworks.
- Expo Studio Plus - Handmade in Brugge
Nowadays, Bruges is still a centre for many talented craftspeople. Every year, Handmade in Brugge hands out awards to some of the very best contemporary makers. 25 of these can be seen in a temporary exhibition at the Gruuthuse Museum.
- [kap-cher] capture
During '[kap-cher] capture' we invite you to become aware of the different artistic processes that artists and works of art go through. The artists sought and found connection with the (living) world of poet Guido Gezelle and his birth house.
- Simon Stevin van Brugghe (Simon Stevin from Bruges), 1620 – 2020. He changed the world.
Learn all about how the insights and discoveries of this Bruges-born scientist still impact everyday life today. The exhibition covers his life and his published works, but it also presents all of Simon Stevin’s work and manuscripts in one place for the very first time.
- MEMLING NOW: Hans Memling in contemporary art
This Flemish primitive painter was a huge influence on other artists over the centuries. Memling’s influence can be seen today in the work of Joseph Kosuth, Kehinde Wiley, David Claerbout and others at the Saint John’s Hospital.
- Nele Van Canneyt zooms in on Bruges during corona times
During ‘corona times’, photographer Nele Van Canneyt took pictures of an empty, deserted city for Musea Brugge. The results of this project can be seen at the Arents’ House from the end of November.
