Bernard van Orley - Brussels and the Renaissance
20 February 2019 - 26 May 2019

Bernard van Orley was one of the pivotal figures of the Renaissance in the Low Countries. BOZAR and other prominent Belgian institutions are teaming up for the first major monographic exhibition devoted to this 16th century artist. Van Orley was a painter at the court of Margaret of Austria and Mary of Hungary and was inundated with commissions. As a young man he was already at the head of one of the biggest workshops of his time. He painted religious subjects and also designed wall tapestries and stained glass windows. In this exhibition special attention is paid to his portraits that place him at the centre of an important network of political advisors, influential clergymen and humanist thinkers. His work was in constant dialogue with that of contemporaries such as Albrecht Dürer and Raphael. 

 

Beyond Klimt -New Horizons in Central Europe, 1914-1938
21 september 2019 - 20 January 2019

The end of WWI and the Austro-Hungarian Empire also meant the revival of major developments in the art world. Political and economic shifts led to artistic migrations, new ideas and perspectives and new artistic networks sprang up all over the place. Artists met up in arts centres and international associations and used magazines to communicate across political borders. They believed their artistic identity was more important than their nationality. This exhibition is your chance to take a look at the Central European territories in full transition through the eyes of Gustav Klimt, Josef Capek, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, László Moholy-Nagy and 75 other artists.

BOZAR and La Cinématèque française join forces for a journey through the world and archives of Chris Marker (1921-2012), the militant filmmaker behind La Jetée (1962), not to mention an author, photographer, artist, musician and globetrotter. Nouvelle Vague film director Alain Resnais called him “the prototype of the twenty-first-century man.” Hyper-versatile and cosmopolite.
