Atelier Nelly and Theo van Doesburg

Archive, Exhibition

11 Jul 2020 — 12 Jul 2021

A new look at the work of Nelly and Theo van Doesburg is possible thanks to the restoration of their architecture archive. The exhibition recognises Nelly as a key figure in the consolidation of the reputation of Van Doesburg and De Stijl. The magnificent focus of the exhibition will be on the couple’s most striking joint project: their studio-house in the Parisian suburb of Meudon. Sketches, drawings and scale models rarely (if ever) exhibited before reveal the house’s rich history.

Conceived as a spa resort, the exhibition Lithium highlights the beneficial and destructive aspects of the eternal human search for energy.

Art on Display 1949-69


04 Oct 2020 — 07 Mar 2021

How do we present art? And how do we look at it, as viewers? Most museum visitors look at artworks without noticing how they are displayed. In contrast, Art on Display 1949-69 focuses not on artworks themselves, but on the way they are presented. For the first time, the exhibition brings together some of the most progressive postwar exhibition designs by architects in the form of 1:1 reconstructions. Featuring displays by Franco Albini and Franca Helg, Lina Bo Bardi, Aldo van Eyck, Carlo Scarpa and Alison and Peter Smithson.
