The Horta Museum is located in the private house and studio of Victor Horta (1861-1947).
Built between 1898 and 1901 at 23-25, rue Américaine in Saint-Gilles, Brussels, the two buildings are typical of Art Nouveau at its height. The interior decoration has largely been retained, the mosaics, stained glass, and wall decorations forming a harmonious and elegant whole, down to the last detail.
Pushing back the walls
Five artists dress Horta’s house. From 3 September to 14 November 2021, extended until 16 January 2022, as part of Brussels Design September.
The Duo Chevalier-Masson, Pierre Marie, Christoph Hefti and Nicolas Stolarczyk have been given carte blanche to take over four rooms in the museum with custom-designed wallpapers that perfectly echo Horta's work and the house. These wallpapers are produced for this occasion by the Atelier d'Offard in Tours.
Press release here.
As from the beginning of the school year, every Monday morning, the museum will welcome primary schools for a pay-based, pro-active and immersive guided tour of the house and of the time of Victor Horta. The visit will be followed by a creative workshop exploring a technique encountered in the house (wall painting, stained glass, sculpture etc.)
