What can you expect?
An art-filled hour
A visit to The Art Hour is a unique experience that lasts for one hour.
Every 20 minutes 8 people at a time are invited in to enjoy this intimistic experience.
Pre-booking is a must, also make sure you arrive on time!
A unique art experience
The works of art are lit up one at a time. You will hear music and narrations though headphones.
The narrators are Flemish celebrities (or almost celebrities) and they are projected next to the piece of art. They tell about their connection with the artist or artwork. In the chapel you will hear actor Jo De Meyere talk about the life stories of the exhibited artists.
This unique exhibition is located in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit and the adjacent House of the Holy Spirit in Mechlin. The chapel dates back from the end of the 13th century and have been a recognized monument since 1938.
The chapel lies across from the St. Rumbold cathedral, on the corner of the Minderbroedersgang.
The 32 exhibited masterpieces by Belgian artists date from the period 1887-1938. A period that was affluent of a variety of art movements.
Over two thirds of these paintings come out of private collections and have seldom been showed to the public. The other works are on loan from Belgian and French museums.
