The second floor of our Comics Art Museum brings the old Waucquez warehouse back to life. From 8 September 2023, this floor will host an exhibition celebrating 77 years of publishing house Le Lombard, in a brand new setting. Designed as a large furniture showroom, the exhibition presents 77 years of family comics. You will discover the origins of Le Lombard, its mythology, its pioneers, its poster boys, its frontiersmen and mavericks. Room by room you will discover the extraordinary richness of a catalogue first built around the legendary magazine Tintin and the graphic style so dear to Hergé, and then reinvented as society and the publishing world evolved. The exhibition offers a playful and inventive look, with never-before-seen documents, images, archives, projections and beautiful originals hidden in fake furniture. Curator: Thierry Bellefroid With the support of the Brussels Capital Region, the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles and the National Lottery and its players

Since the Belgian Comic Art Museum moved into one of Victor Horta's architectural beauties, it brings together Art Nouveau and Ninth Art. So, as Brussels celebrates its Art Nouveau, the Comic Museum is delighted to present a new exhibition highlighting the richness of the theme and the inventiveness of the artists. Besides simply representing Art Nouveau in comics, the exhibition will highlight, in an original way, the relationship between the two arts. The exhibition will invite visitors to immerse themselves in the period of Art Nouveau, its influences and its main authors (such as Alphonse Mucha, for example) who inspired the Ninth Art. A selection of plates and reproductions will allow visitors to (re)discover the work of some Franco-Belgian authors who were inspired by Art Nouveau to create works in its image: strong, rhythmic, colourful and with exceptional creative freedom...

The Wolf in Underpants actually originated from another series: Les Vieux Fourneaux. There, a travelling puppet theatre called "Le Loup en slip" appeared in one particular album. Since 2016, that merry wolf has been living its own adventures. The creators combined their talents to appeal to a younger audience with this comic strip. The main character is a friendly wolf, recognisable by his red-and-white striped pants, who stands out for his generosity and sympathy. The stories, written by Wilfrid Lupano, were drawn and coloured by Mayana Itoïz, with contributions by Paul Cauuet. They are full of humour and meaning. The albums deal with important themes such as fear, difference, work and fashion and highlight solidarity, friendship, discovery and travel. We are immensely excited to welcome this special wolf to our museum in the Gallery. Little life in the forest, with Madame Owl, the anti-wolf brigade and Robert the squirrel, king of hazelnuts and business, is full of surprises. Young and old alike can enjoy this endearing world that will make you laugh and feel good! With the support of the Brussels-Capital Region and la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles In cooperation with publisher Dargaud

La BD est un médium magique, pas vrai ? Les bandes dessinées peuvent émouvoir, faire voyager, distraire, faire rire, sensibiliser... De plus en plus les musées prennent conscience de ce potentiel, laissant la place à des histoires touchantes et humaines illustrées par le dessin. Après la première édition du colloque internationale Comics @ the Museum en septembre 2022, qui a réuni quelques 80 participants, une suite se prépare. Le 21 mars 2024 nous mettrons en avant 3 manières dont la bande dessinée peut être impliqué dans le fonctionnement des musées ou archives : la création de bandes dessinées, la bande dessinée dans les expositions et les collections et la reprise d'expositions (de bande dessinée) existantes. Un onglet participatif invite à imaginer des nouveaux projets de bandes dessinées patrimoniales.
