17 September - 16 January 2011. On the centenary of Europe's twentieth-century art movement Abstraction, this exhibition celebrates Belgium's considerable contribution to the genre. Dedicated to the group's founding members and leading lights from the 1920s, as well as contemporary Belgian abstract artists, the show provides concrete insights into an abstract world.

Although abstraction began in Europe, the movement, along with many other modern art disciplines, became associated with America due to the many European artists fleeing the nazi regime. The exhibition includes free guided tours each Sunday at 11.30 and 14.30.

Wed-Sun. 10.00-18.00
