MIMA  (Millennium Iconoclast Museum of Art) : opening on March 24th, 2016

The Millennium Iconoclast Museum of Art, is a contemporary art museum – the only one of its kind in Europe – that will take the public through a history of ‘Culture 2.0’.

MIMA will build bridges with different audiences, devise educational activities for school groups, associations and families, make the museum a forum for debate, liaise with the academic world, establish a dialogue with various museums and export its exhibitions abroad.

The venue will offer temporary exhibitions, a permanent collection, meetings, screenings, concerts and performances in an area of more than 1,200 m2 spread over four floors. The MIMA will also have : a shop, a cafeteria and two panoramic viewpoints over the Brussels canal.

Group visits : up to 20 persons/group (EN, FRE, NL).

Receptions : up to 150 persons ; banquets : up to 100.

MIMA will allow three in-house caterers (a corkage fee will be requested from other caterers).

There are paid protected parking facilities in the neighbourhood.

For its opening, MIMA has scheduled the exhibition “City Lights”. Four artists from the US will headline MIMA’s first temporary exhibition : Momo, Faile, Maya Hayuk, Swoon.

These iconic figures of Art 2.0 will create four installations specifically for the occasion.
