M HKA, Antwerpen
27 September 2013 - 05 January 2014
In 2013, the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp marked its 350th anniversary. This makes it the fourth oldest art school in the world and the oldest in the Low Countries. The M HKA joined in the celebrations: in the context of Happy Birthday Dear Academy – which included two major exhibitions at MAS and the MoMu Fashion Museum - the museum welcomed the Academy to its top floors.
Within the context of MUHKADEMIE, artist Nico Dockx (°1974, Ekeren) and art historian Johan Pas (°1963, Schoten) invited artists and art lovers, lecturers and students, and thinkers and doers to consider the role of the academy and of the museum in a changing, ‘post-institutional’ art world.
Part of the MUHKADEMIE project was MUHKALUMNI in the context of the 350th anniversary of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. MUHKALUMNI was a weekly alternating exhibition where Ina Leys invited 15 artists from different disciplines, graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, to carry out an intervention in the Lonely at the Top rooms of the M HKA. They had been instructed to enter into dialogue with the collection works from the M HKA and the Iconostase en gribouilli structure of Yona Friedman.
At MUHKALUMNI, the 'white cube' concept was done away with and Yona Friedman's work served as the backbone around which work by the alumni artists and benchmarks from the museum collection were integrated, shown, and/or placed in dialogue.
