Exhibition on view in the Belfius Lounge
"At Belfius, art holds a very special place in our hearts. Our art collection features no fewer than 4,300 different items, making it the largest private collection of Belgian art. And we very much want to share this exceptional artistic treasure trove with as many people as possible, whether as part of our annual exhibition in the Belfius Art Gallery, or through various partnerships and the loans we make to numerous museums.
Once again and for the third year in a row, we are delighted to be the main partner of Art Brussels, the contemporary art show that is now in its 37th edition. Art Brussels provides us with an opportunity to proudly exhibit an array of works carefully selected around a specific common theme. In 2018, that theme was Inspiring/Inspired: Women in the Belfius Art Collection, which provided visitors with a view of the women who were the models and muses depicted on the canvas, as well as the woman artists behind the canvas, holding the brushes.
The display for the 2019 edition is entitled ArtBeats, a selection of 30 major works from the Belfius Art Collection, chosen by as many Belgian personalities.
Through their choices, these art lovers reveal something about themselves. They share with us what makes them tick, what moves them, fascinates them and surprises them, so we can better understand the art that makes their heart beat and their pulse race. The result is an exhibition staged in the unique setting of the Belfius Lounge, and a journey through their emotions, uncovering their interests and the way they see the world. A journey full of moments of inspiration, where passions are revealed and where the soul is able to express itself candidly.
If you would like to discover the fascinating exhibition that is ArtBeats, please come and visit us in the Belfius Lounge."
