Gao Xingjian's exhibition "The Awakening of Consciousness" will be in Brussels for the next 5 years. Discover it at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.

The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium welcome six monumental pieces by Gao Xingjian, specially created for the venue!

The Awakening of Consciousness

In "The Awakening of Consciousness", the artist invites visitors to go beyond the image and the ink and discover the piece's idea, in its existential nudity... where museums become once again spaces for contemplation.

The artist

Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2000, Gao Xingjian, a French artist of Chinese origin, sees himself as a go between between the Oriental world that makes up the base of his identity and the Western world, of which he analyses the idea of modernity.

His work also constitutes a bridge between painting and writing.

This exhibition is running simultaneously with Gao Xingjian's "Retrospective" at the Museum of Ixelles.
