Museum to scale 1/7

Posted filed underArt Fairs, Belgium, Museums.

Ronny Van de Velde has been active in the field of exhibition organisation and catalogue publication for about thirty years. This year he presented a museum on the scale of 1:7, made up of thirty rooms of original work, each 100 x 60 x 65 cm. Such an installation is a first at the BRAFA in Bruxelles.

The circuit begins with Grandville’s drawings for Gulliver’s Travels, the famous book in which scale plays such a major role. Subsequent exhibition rooms are devoted to symbolism, surrealism, photography, the Cobra group, abstract and minimal art, and some will feature works by contemporary Belgian artists including Peter De Cupere, Fred Eerdekens, Jan Fabre, Kris Martin, Wesley Meuris, Boy Stappaerts, Stefan Vanfleteren, Koen Vanmechelen, Wout Vercammen and Cindy Wright. A collection catalogue will be published in conjunction with the opening of the miniature museum.
