The Boghossian Foundation – Villa Empain is exceptionally closed on Thursday 20 June. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to welcoming you from Friday 21 June, until 8 September for the visit of the exhibition Josef and Anni Albers.


This catalogue was designed for the Flamboyant, Art de vivre in the thirties exhibition.

Flamboyant was an immersive exhibition, inviting visitors into the home of a fictional collector from the 1920s and 1930s. Upon entering the Villa Empain, they rediscovered this unique architectural gem built in 1934, entirely furnished in the Art Deco style and adorned with a multitude of paintings, sculptures and furniture from this period.
