To Visit: 5 Exhibitions That Will Inspire You This Spring

Are you in desperate need to get some new inspiration to fuel the creative fire within yourself? Exhibitions could be a great environment to discover new perspectives and are the ultimate trip to take some time for yourself. We selected five exhibitions in different Belgian cities you can currently visit.

1. Émergences.fr — Bozar (Brussels)

Émergences.fr is an exhibition conceived by Paris’ cultural hotspot La Villette and shows the works of 29 freshly graduated artists. The collection varies from photography to design, sculptures, and short movies, which represents the eight French art and design schools including a.o. Les Gobelins, l’ENSCI and la FEMIS. The exhibition is free, but reservations have to be made in advance to ensure a spot.

‘Émergences.fr’ runs until 10 April. For more information, visit Bozar’s website.

2. Viva Frida Kahlo — VIAGE (Brussels)

Frida Kahlo belongs to the most famous Mexican artists to have ever existed, and her view on art still inspires many creatives. The new Viva Frida Kahlo exhibition offers an immersive experience, where you get to witness her work like you’ve never seen before. You get to step into the tragic life of Kahlo and get to see her most important works in a whole new setting.

‘Viva Frida Kahlo’ runs from 18 March. For more information, visit their website.

S.M.A.K. hosts 40 pieces of the Matthys-Colle private collection, which centers on the influence of POP ART on our society. The art movement originally originated in London and New York in the 1950s with the intention to criticize unprecedented consumerism.

Antwerp’s famous FoMu always hosts interesting photography exhibitions and bundled the work of fifty groundbreaking photographers to create a new view on the concept of ‘masculinity’.

5. ACTIVEWEAR — Modemuseum (Hasselt)

Élodie Ouédraogo and Olivia Borlée have their own brand UNRUN, where they combine fashion with activewear.
