4x Museum for (digital) art
Fancy touching a Picasso? Or like to know what the future of art looks like? Or maybe you've been dreaming about walking a world consisting of light art. Well, this is your chance! As an art lover, you can indulge yourself at the following museums for (digital) art.
MU Hybrid Art House
MU Hybrid Art House is a place where art is central, literally and figuratively. From fine art to design and from digital art to bio-art. MU focuses on what art and design can be, not what it already is. You'll mainly come across young makers here, who share their vision of the future based on strong awareness of current events. And more than just look, you can also participate: MU organizes workshops, talks, and interactive performances.
Ton Smits Huis
This may be an odd one on the list, but it is still worth mentioning; the Ton Smits Huis. In the former studio house, you will find the artist's work called Ton Smits. His paintings and pencil sketches, together with his original cartoons for American newspapers and magazines, form the basis of the museum collection. In changing exhibitions, other artists get to be in the spotlight. Carry away with the help of Ton Smits' artistic legacy with a creative twist.
Motion Imagination Experience
Eindhoven is informally called the ‘city of light’ because of our history with matches (Eindhoven was one of the biggest producers in the late 19th century) and Philips’ light bulbs. Though it’s not an official nickname, we are definitely good at experimenting with light. Come see for yourself at Motion Imagination Experience. They have everything from interactive floor projections, to surreal lighting objects and digital mirror walls. Prepare to be amazed!
Both the large collection of modern art and the experimental character of the Van Abbemuseum will leave an impression on you. Ask questions about current topics such as art and society, together with the museum, gain new insights from the carefully selected exhibitions and join the discussion during film screenings and book presentations. The surprising combination of new pieces and permanent works by Picasso, El Lissitzky, and Mondriaan make the Van Abbe a must-visit museum.
