15 APRIL 2016: One night, ten locations: it's the first Museumnacht Maastricht and the Van Eyck is 1 of the 10 venues!
From valuable historical artefacts and striking archaeological finds to eccentric contemporary works of art and cutting-edge video art: you can expect all this and more during the first ever Museumnacht (Museum Night) Maastricht. The ten participating venues will open their doors for the evening of Friday 15 April, from 20:00 to midnight. Besides their own exhibitions, there will be a special programme of performances, workshops, artists’ talks, exclusive tours, previews, drinks, and music. And with the free hop-on-hop-off bus service, no-one need to miss a thing. The first edition of Museumnacht Maastricht will be concluded in style with an after-party held at Ipanema (the café at the Bonnefantenmuseum) from midnight to 3:00 AM.
BRING YOUR OWN BEAMER AT THE VAN EYCK
On the night of 15th of April 2016 artists and designers bring their own projector and show their work on the walls of the Van Eyck during the first Maastricht edition of Bring Your Own Beamer.
