Tapestries from the era of Charles V
During the summer of 2015, the Cinquantenaire Museum is organising a small but exceptional exhibition of Brussels tapestries around one of the best known works held in its collection. This tapestry represents a scene that is associated with the legend of the statue of Notre-Dame du Sablon, a legend which is at the origin of the Brussels Ommegang (religious procession). The work shows several members of the archducal family that ruled the Lowlands at the start of the 16th century, surrounded by a sumptuous courtly household.

Giant Masks from the Congo. A Belgian Jesuit ethnographic heritage
The exhibition presents a set of masks used during the mukanda male initiation rite among the Yaka and the Suku, people of the southwestern DR Congo. These masks, along with other pieces on display, reflect the ethnographic research and collection conducted by Jesuit missionaries in the Belgian Congo. The Jesuits were in close contact with the RMCA since the late 1910s. These masks are remarkable in their exceptional form and design. Most of these pieces have never before been seen in public or in print.

New space ! Gao Xingjian. The awakening of consciousness
The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium welcome six monumental works by Gao Xingjian, especially created for the room they are displayed in. In his 'awakenings of consciousness', the artist invites the wanderer to cross the image and to encounter, beyond the ink, the idea itself in its existential nudity… a space where the museums (re)devote themselves to contemplation.
