M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste échte stappen in het digitale landschap. Ons doel is met behulp van nieuwe media de kunstwerken nog beter te kaderen dan we tot nu toe hebben kunnen doen.

We geven momenteel prioriteit aan smartphones en tablets, m.a.w. de in-museum-ervaring. Maar we zijn evenzeer hard aan het werk aan een veelzijdige desktop-versie. Tot het zover is vind je hier deze tussenversie.

M HKA goes digital

Embracing the possibilities of new media, M HKA is making a particular effort to share its knowledge and give art the framework it deserves.

We are currently focusing on the experience in the museum with this application for smartphones and tablets. In the future this will also lead to a versatile desktop version, which is now still in its construction phase.

Ricardo Brey

° 1955

Leeft in Ghent (Belgium), geboren in Havana (Cuba).

Ricardo Brey (Havana, 1955) is een in Cuba geboren visueel kunstenaar. Hij studeerde af aan de Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes ‘San Alejandro’ en de Cubaanse Nationale School voor de Kunsten. Zijn artistieke roots situeren zich in de jaren 70 en 80 toen hij actief lid was van de groep Volumen I. De groep vertegenwoordigt nu de opkomst van een nieuwe generatie avant-garde kunstenaars in Cuba na de revolutie van 1959.

Na uitvoerig gereisd te hebben ontvangt Brey een uitnodiging om deel te nemen aan Documenta IX in Kassel. Brey verhuist hiervoor in 1990 naar Gent, waar hij nog steeds woont. In 1997 ontvangt hij een beurs van het Guggenheim voor installatiekunst en sculptuur en de Vlaamse Beeldende Kunstsprijs van Vlaams minister van Cultuur Luc Martens.
