  • Musée national d’histoire et d’art
    Guided tours of the exhibition 'Robert Brandy. A personal retrospective on a 50-year career'
    18H00 (DE) | 19H00 (EN) | 21H00 (FR) | 22H00 (DE)

    With this exhibition, the MNHA invites visitors to explore half a century of work by this popular and well-known Luxembourg artist. In his early career, Brandy quickly made a name for himself in the art world, not least because he was determined to achieve something almost unheard of in 1970s Luxembourg: to make his passion his profession and make a living from his art in his own country. Establishing himself as an independent self-employed artist turned him into something of a renowned figure and, without Brandy even knowing it, he was to pave the way for other artists to follow in his footsteps. The purpose of this MNHA exhibition is two-fold: Firstly, it showcases Brandy’s long career (1971-2021) through a selection of works – some of them previously unseen by the public – which demonstrates how his artistic expression has developed over time. Visitors can explore how his career has progressed and how his artistic language has evolved from his early career to the present day. Secondly, the exhibition highlights Brandy’s role in Luxembourg’s art history as a pioneer in promoting art as a freelance occupation at a pivotal moment in the development of the country’s arts sector.

     

  • Musée national d’histoire et d’art
    Guided tours of the exhibition 'Rethinking Landscape – 8th European Month of Photography'
    17H30 (FR) | 20H00 (DE)

    Landscape representations have a long and rich history in art. With the development of the Land Art movement, at the beginning of the 1970s, landscape scenes radically changed paradigm. By becoming a medium, the landscape is no longer used by the artist as a subject in itself, but is physically experienced as part of the artistic practice. Through new contemporary representations of the analog and digital image, young European photographers nowadays raise awareness of the increasingly unbalanced relationship between man and nature in their work. Rethinking Landscape presents five stances of artists taking a new photographic look at landscape representation and offering new aesthetic approaches, varying between fiction, sublimation and distancing.

     

  • Musée national d’histoire et d’art
    Guided tours of the exhibition 'Supports/Surfaces : Viallat & Saytour – Modern french painting du MNHA'
    18H30 (LU) | 22H30 (FR)

    One of the strengths of the MNHA’s collection of international art is the ensemble of paintings by Supports/Surfaces, an artistic movement from 1966-1972 which helped to shape contemporary French art, both in painting and sculpture. The MNHA holds one of the most important public collections of Supports Surfaces at European level. It was carefully built up over many years, and is still actively strengthened with donations and purchases. In this exhibition important acquisitions from recent years are shown, focusing on works by two founding members of the Supports/Surfaces movement: Patrick Saytour (b.1935) and Claude Viallat (b.1936).
