/ Permanent exhibitions

Xpo Picasso

 

Xpo Center Bruges is presenting over 300 graphic works that Picasso created between 1930 and 1970. Each engraving or lithograph is an original work, created by the artist personally. Along with Münster, Bruges holds the largest collection of engravings and lithographs in Northern Europe. Moreover Xpo Center Bruges is presenting exceptional ceramics.

Xpo Miró

 

The exhibition of Picasso’s works can be extended to include an exhibition of works by his contemporary, Joan Miró. The two exhibitions combined immerse the visitor in the zeitgeist of Cubism and Surrealism at the time of their greatest momentum.

Like Picasso, Miró is Spanish; however, the two artists met for the first time in Paris.

Painter Antonio Nunziante given pride of place in Bruges

 

In 2017 and 2018, several museums and cultural venues across Belgium will pay homage to the talent of the painter Antonio Nunziante. From 1st June, a travelling exhibition, entitled “Antonio Nunziante, the thought of the image and the image of thought” will be presented in Bruges within the Pablo Picasso permanent collection. The exhibition will allow visitors to discover the work of this painter who is an essential figure of metaphysical painting. Like his famous contemporaries, Antonio Nunziante learned lessons from the masters before going on to surpass them. The references can clearly be recognised for this painter who regularly alludes to his admiration for past and modern masters such as Giorgio Di Chirico or René Magritte…

 

In this exhibition, the paintings chosen illustrate the different aspects of Antonio Nunziante’s works, which will be on display alongside those of René Magritte, Paul Delvaux or Salvador Dalí. One can only acknowledge the extraordinary force of Antonio Nunziante’s works. The painter proposes a new and remarkably modern conception of the artwork in all its guises. In the works of Antonio Nunziante, its poetics make mystery visible and propose a new vision of the world in which the spectator finds him or herself in isolation to “hear the silence of the world”…
