Collection

The Hugo Voeten Collection represents a unique combination of both Belgian and international works. Currently it comprises over 1700 art pieces that have been collected during a period of more than 30 years. They are exhibited in two separate locations – at the Art Center close to Herentals and at the sculpture park near Gheel.

THE HUGO VOETEN COLLECTION

A UNIQUE COMBINATION OF BOTH BELGIAN AND INTERNATIONAL WORKS

The Hugo Voeten Collection reflects in his personal perception of Modern and Contemporary art, with a meticulous selection of classical and contemporary Belgian art (from Jules Schmalzigaug, Leon Spilliaert, Rik Wouters and Frans Masereel to Jef Geys, Michel François, Wim Delvoye and Thierry De Cordier). Also included are masterpieces of Western European art from the beginning and first half of the 20th century (Auguste Rodin, Arno Breker), as well as current art pieces and projects in progress by a number of acclaimed contemporary artists (Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Vanessa Beecroft, Paul Pfeiffer, Sophie Calle or Mircea Cantor). In addition, a special part in this collection is reserved for Bulgarian art, which in itself is the largest such gathering of Bulgarian art outside the country’s borders.
