At the Grand Curtius, the 6th volume of Inner Space is a multidisciplinary event where artistic performances, video art, plastic art, concerts and encounters intersect. The forty or so artists represented there come from the Liège region, but more broadly from Belgium and Europe. They have been invited to propose an artistic intervention inspired by their encounter with the Grand Curtius collections.
A Tale of Facts' is Andy Warhol's impressive biography, spanning more than 550 pages by Dutch cartoonist Typex. The exhibition, imagined with the author, takes a personal and offbeat look at pop culture and the Warholian universe. Typex plays with humor and virtuosity of the styles that have marked the history of comics. This exhibition is conducted in partnership with the Museum of Aix-en-Provence.
In this month of intense medical activity, the Grand Curtius is highlighting this Delft earthenware pharmacy jar dating from the early 18th century, found in the Bavarian hospital. The inscription at the centre of the jar provides information about its contents: the Andromachean theriac, from the Greek thêriakos meaning "that which concerns poisonous beasts". A remedy sometimes adulated, sometimes denounced, let it take you on a journey through the centuries of its history, from Ancient Greece to the mysterious pharmacies of Liège, not forgetting the doctor of Emperor Nero, whose name it will retain.
