In the exhibition 'This Is Us', selected works from the four largest Flemish museums for contemporary art will be presented together for the very first time. Curator Fabian Flückiger chose artworks from the contemporary collections of M HKA, S.M.A.K., Mu.ZEE and M Leuven. With the artistic learning environment as his inspiration, he reflected on what these collections represent. What do they say about modern society and what can this teach visitors?
The exhibition is divided into three chapters: The Art Institution, Living Spaces, and Telling Stories, which contain works by some fifty artists, more than half of whom live and work in Belgium. They also include seven new works, created specifically for this exhibition.
This Is Us is a unique collaboration between the leading Flemish museums of contemporary art and Z33.
