In honour of one of the greatest living Belgian artists, "Carta Canta" presents a selection of Alechinsky’s works on paper chosen from 270 works gifted by the artist to the Royal Museums, as well as new exceptional donations. More than 200 drawings, watercolours, etchings, lithographs and paintings invite you to dream and travel to the infinity of the imagination. The exhibition shows Alechinsky’s never-ending exploration of the imaginary, led by a keen sense for technical experimentation. This practice elevates the act of drawing – and thus the drawing itself – to the core of his rich and multifaceted body of work. Furthermore, the exhibition's cross-disciplinary view establishes links between the artist and the RMFAB’s collection, from Ensor to Magritte.
