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, 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.

As well as actively supporting the Museum, its Friends are also collectors.
For World Art Nouveau Day, they have lent the Museum works that evoke the animal kingdom and display the European aspect of Art Nouveau.
From 10 June to 30 September 2021
