Our guide will take you through the Motel Corona exhibition, where we will see new works of art that entered the museum's collection via an unusual route. To compensate for the impact of the corona crisis on artists, the Flemish Community purchased more than 250 artworks, 42 of which went to S.M.A.K. Discover a selection, such as Liliane Vertessen's eponymous work, in Motel Corona.

Using works from the Matthys-Colle Collection and S.M.A.K., we depict the portrait of Marc De Cock. In 1979, he was president of the Association for the Museum of Contemporary Art, the organisation at the origin of today's S.M.A.K. The museum received an impressive selection of artworks on long-term loan from the collector couple Hilda Colle and Roger Matthys.
