We look forward to meeting you again in the renewed Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens with new discoveries and old acquaintances, inside and outside the museum:
Zes permanente kunstwerken (Six permanent art works)
To mark the re-opening, MDD presents a display of six permanent interventions created in response to MDD’s architecture.
Zes permanente kunstwerken spans the museum’s history from David Tremlett’s fully uncovered 1990 wall drawing and Niele Toroni’s paintings above MDD’s doors from 2007, to Kelly Schacht’s re-interpretation of her 2008 installation in the museum’s lobby and three new site-specific projects by Lieve D’hondt, Lili Dujourie, and Bjarne Melgaard. D’hondt’s The Floor is Yours is a large-scale collective artwork made possible thanks to hundreds of MDD supporters. Zes permanente kunstwerken further includes works by the artists that resonate with their permanent installations.
MDD’s sculpture garden offers highlights of the museum’s rich history – and future – with works by Paul Van Gysegem (1964), Bernd Lohaus (1991), Karel De Meester (1992), Isa Genzken (1998), Gary Hume (2020) and Rirkrit Tiravanija (2018/2021).
Tiravanija’s participatory Untitled 2018 (the infinite dimensions of smallness) includes an active tea house where visitors can enjoy a free tea-tasting experience – reservations to open in August 2021.
