Invitation: major exhibition opening at Saint Peter’s Church in Leuven
Tuesday, February 25, 2020 —
From 7 March 2020, the completely restored Saint Peter’s Church in Leuven will be the setting for a new permanent exhibition of Flemish masterpieces, curated by M Leuven. The highlights are the two most important works by the Flemish master Dieric Bouts: ‘The Last Supper’ and ‘The Martyrdom of Saint Erasmus’. Bouts painted these works specifically for this church 560 years ago, and this is where they remain all those years later. To tell the story of the church’s art treasures in their historical context, M has developed an innovative digital experience. ‘Between Heaven and Earth – Experience Bouts’ Last Supper’ is part of Tourism Flanders’ Flemish Masters project.
M Leuven, the City of Leuven, the Saint Peter’s Church Council, Tourism Flemish-Brabant, and Tourism Flanders cordially invite you to an introduction, demonstration of the (digital) tour and a tasting of Bouts beer and other Bouts refreshments on Monday 2 March at 1 pm at Saint Peter’s Church.
