The Collection as a Character

Client: Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp
The exhibition The Collection as a Character portrays the character of the M HKA collection as it has been shaped by the reality of institutional art collecting in our times. The ensemble is key to characterising the M HKA collection. It is a coherent group of works that is significant enough, in either qualitative or quantitative terms, to be regarded as more than a presence of works or series of works by this or that artist. The designs for the exhibition focused on the museum as a collection with sub-collections or ensembles, each time displayed differently, emphasizing the dynamic character of the collection. Infographics were also created throughout the exhibition to give visitors a glimpse of the (international) character of the M HKA collection.
