Opening van de tentoonstelling «The Arenbergs» in Museum M, Leuventerug naar overzicht
Opening van de tentoonstelling over de Arenberg collectie in Museum M in Leuven, België. In samenwerking met de stad Leuven, de Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, het Universiteitsarchief en Kunstpatrimonium, en KU[N]ST Leuven.
In the 20th century, the Arenbergs’ impressive art collection was scattered across the world. The exhibition at M-Museum Leuven is bringing a number of carefully selected works back together for a festive reunion.
The exhibition The Arenbergs. Power and Beauty at M-Museum Leuven will take centre stage in a citywide project in Leuven which will run from 26 October 2018 through to 20 January 2019.
This exhibition presents artworks and also documents – some on show to the public for the first time – from national and international collections. They illustrate the vicissitudes of a high-placed family, its political and military fortunes, its economic influence, cosmopolitan lifestyle and exceptional interest in art and culture.
The partners of the exhibition are M-Museum Leuven, KU Leuven Art and Heritage, KU[N]ST Leuven and the Arenberg Foundation.
