Felix De Boeck (1898 – 1995) was part of the first generation of modernist painters in Belgium. He evolved from academism to impressionist-inspired works and violently colourfull Fauvism to abstraction. Felix De Boeck was born in Drogenbos on his parents’ farm, where he would later live and work himself. In 1995 a museum dedicated to the life and work of the painter was established in Drogenbos. For the museum Felix De Boeck is the starting point for exhibitions and projects on both historical and contemporary avant-garde art. During PeriFeria you can visit the museum and take part in a guided visit of the museum and it’s surroundings on Saturday 31 August at 10:30.
FeliXart is a museum dedicated to painter Felix De Boeck that presents exhibitions and projects on both historical and contemporary avant-garde art. Heritage and art go hand in hand in this small green oasis amidst the hustle and bustle of the perifery of Brussels. The large X in Felix refers to the two intersecting tracks in their work: that of art and that of the attention to the local and ecological.
