M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste échte stappen in het digitale landschap. Ons doel is met behulp van nieuwe media de kunstwerken nog beter te kaderen dan we tot nu toe hebben kunnen doen.

We geven momenteel prioriteit aan smartphones en tablets, m.a.w. de in-museum-ervaring. Maar we zijn evenzeer hard aan het werk aan een veelzijdige desktop-versie. Tot het zover is vind je hier deze tussenversie.

M HKA goes digital

Embracing the possibilities of new media, M HKA is making a particular effort to share its knowledge and give art the framework it deserves.

We are currently focusing on the experience in the museum with this application for smartphones and tablets. In the future this will also lead to a versatile desktop version, which is now still in its construction phase.

Bjarne Melgaard

° 1967

Lives in New York City (US), born in Sydney (AU).

Bjarne Melgaard is a New York-based Norwegian artist creates works with violent and sexually explicit overtones. While he has toned down his viscerally confrontational works, tending more toward loose and colorful expressionist paintings, Melgaard often completely transforms the sites in which he exhibits, on both an aesthetic and fundamental level, changing not only the wallpaper, but turning them into white tiger playpens or sites for sleeping. As a novelist, painter, and video artist, Melgaard deftly eludes rote art world classifications, bringing his defiant sense of profane humor with him to every new project. Bjarne Melgaard has shown his work in exhibitions around the world including at the 5th Biennale de Lyon in 2000, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris in 2006, and London's Institute of Contemporary Art in 2012.
