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.

True to its mission of promoting dialogue between cultures, the Boghossian Foundation, in partnership with the Brussels association Platform 50 and the Franco-Armenian NGO Yerkir, has invited six musicians from Turkey, Armenia, France and Belgium to undertake residences at the Foundation.

At the end of their stay, a unique concert, combining current and traditional Armenian and Turkish music, will be organized at the Villa Empain. Including a Turkish saz, an Armenian duduk, an electric violin and analog synthesizers, this eclectic artistic universe will express, with passion, energy and empathy, personal and social themes common to all. In this unprecedented ensemble, music provides a universal medium for artistic dialogue between women from diverse cultural backgrounds, both artists and committed citizens, singing emancipation and freedom.
