This exhibition offered an insight into the history of Flemish art, with particular attention paid to the things that motivated its artists: how was art perceived by makers ‘from round here’? Did Flemish history influence their outlook on art? How do contemporary artists from the region view this evolution?
The exhibition was compiled from art works belonging to The Phoebus Foundation collection, supplemented by loans from various artists. The lower storey was given over entirely to temporary exhibitions of work by young guest artists.
