Over to women artists

From 29.09.22 > 05.02.23

Over to women artists sets aside the representation of women as merely models, to focus on women creators.

This capsule exhibition highlights ten artists through six themes. Two to three works are presented per theme: the artist couple, the painter and sculptor, portraits, historical representations, views of Brussels and rural scenes.

By drawing on its collections, the museum asks questions about its works beyond what they represent: muses, women saints, allegories, etc. What traces remain of women when these traditional representations are put aside? Who are these women who have marked history and left their indelible mark on the artistic production of their eras?

Due to gender stereotypes, women artists are underrepresented in museums. Putting the work of women artists in the spotlight is a passionate and necessary exercise.
