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.

1941 - 2011

Died in New York (United States), born in Luton (United Kingdom).

Following his art education, English-born abstract artist Alan Uglow (1941–2011) moved to New York and remained there for the rest of his life. In this metropolis, Uglow dedicated himself to building an oeuvre of painting with great care and feeling for precision focusing on the relationship between the viewer and the artwork, the subtle dialogue between center and margin, presence and absence, sometimes combined with sound recordings of his rock band Hard Labour: an extensive practice that he maintained after working a day-job in construction to make ends meet during a tough time financially, one where painting had several times been declared dead as an art form.
