With 2020 approaching it is time to look back on 2019. BOZAR is always very proud when our projects pop up in end-of-year lists. 

The exhibition on Bernard van Orley received international appraisal and appears in the shortlist of "Exhibition of the Year" by Apollo Magazine. The overseas arts correspondent for The New York Times put the exhibition in his ‘best of 2019’ and praised BOZAR as one of the institutions that  “reclaimed undersung heroes of European art of the 15th and early 16th centuries” with an exhibition that “brought out the paintings, prints and tapestries of the all-media monster Bernard van Orley”.  Bernard van Orley. Brussels and the Renaissance was made in collaboration with the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium and the Royal Museums of Art and History, Brussels.

The exhibition saw masterpieces travel back to the place they were once created from the biggest collections in the world such as the Louvre in paris or the Metropolitan Museum in New York.
