Museum Night at the Ghent Museums

20231006 SMAK Opening c Martin Corlazzoli COR09141

On Museum Night, the Ghent museums will once again open their doors wide until 1 am. Be surprised by what the museums have to offer, plan your route and combine two or three museums.

On museum night, our two major retrospectives take centre stage: discover the many references to the great masters in Jan Van Imschoot's figurative work, and dive into the inventive visual world of Georgian artist, poet and critic Karlo Kacharava.

But also stop by the extraordinary letter paintings by Joseph Willaert or the film Caligari und der Schlafwandler by Venezuelan Javier Téllez. Finally, meet the artists of NICC in Room 1 on this opening night of their anniversary event NICCx25.
