Reopening of the Trinkhall Museum in Liège
The museum, formerly known as MADmusée and devoted to art produced by the mentally disabled, has been completely renovated. Still located in Avroy Park, it reopens its doors on 20 March.
Created by the architectural studio Beguin-Massart, the new building covered with an opalescent net with delicate rounded contours "stands like a lantern in the heart of the city of Liège," according to its designers.
More than 3,000 works from around the world produced mainly by mentally disabled artists are exhibited in this new haven that benefits from over 600 m² of exhibition space instead of 100 m² previously. In addition to the international collection of Créahm, the venue also houses a bookshop, a documentation centre, a space for meetings and educational activities, not to mention the café-restaurant with its terrace looking out onto Avroy Park.
Trinkhall's activities are organised around annual themes. The first season of the Trinkhall is devoted to the theme of the face with a collection that should be deeply moving. In addition, concerts, screenings, shows and performances will mark the new museum's seasons.
