Fifty Years of Photorealism

On Wednesday June 29th the well-attended inauguration took place of Fifty Years of Photorealism in the Musée d’Ixelles (French) or Museum van Elsene (Dutch). The museum, in existence since 1892, is located in the affluent multicultural suburbs of Brussels’ city center known for its Art Nouveau houses built by Victor Horta, many of which are listed as UNESCO world heritage sites. As all public institutions and street signs in Brussels, the museum has a bilingual name due to the cohabitation of its Dutch-speaking and French-speaking communities.
