This exhibition focusses on the paintings of Hans Memling, one of the most significant painters of the Burgundian Bruges genre. His work inspired a lot of contemporary artists. You will get a glimpse of his big influence.

About

Hans Memling painted no less than four works for the medieval Sint-Janshospitaal, which are considered to be masterpieces amongst the artwork of the Flemish primitives. The world-renowned Ursula Shrine is one them.

Hans Memling is a source of inspiration for various contemporary artists and this Bruges exhibition highlights his influences for the first time. As well as a range of works of art by Joseph Kosuth – one of the forefathers of conceptual art – there will also be works on display by African-American painter Kehinde Wiley (who painted an official portrait of Barack Obama). The exhibition also includes work by the Iranian painter Aydin Aghdashloo. Belgian artist David Claerbout and the Syrian-American Diana Al-Hadid created new work for this project.
