Project of extension

Two Museums in one…an original project


The museum has big collection of abstract Belgian artists in his collection, a way to underline the link between Magritte and abstract art in his youth. Due to a lack of space, those works can only be exhibited during temporary exhibitions; But this rich collection of 650 pieces could deserve a museum for itself. A few years ago came the idea of buying the house nextdoor to open a new extension to the René Magritte Museum: the Museum of abstract art. The most famous Belgium abstract artists would be exhibited from the first generation of the 20's til the second post WW2 generation.

A long term project that needs help. For the moment no date can be fixed for a possible opening as there is still a lot of renovation to be done. The collection is ready and the place is found but we still need to settle the museum scenery. As our cultural organization comes from a private initiative we're currently looking for financial support to achieve this ambitious project: it would be the first museum of abstract art in Belgium!

If you're also an art lover and wish to know more about this initiative, don't hesitate to contact us: info@magrittemuseum / 0032 2 428 26 26
