February 2020 the largest Jan van Eyck exhibition ever opened at the Museum of Fine Arts (MSK) Ghent. Only about twenty works by this Flemish master have been preserved worldwide. At least half of them have travelled to the MSK. The pieces have been brought together with work from Eyck’s studio and copies of paintings that have disappeared in the meantime. The exhibition also contains more than 100 masterpieces from the late Middle Ages. All works are spread over no less than 13 refurbished museum rooms.
In collaboration with design agency Pièce Montée and lighting agency Chris Pype, Bruns has created the exhibition ‘Van Eyck. An Optical Revolution’ within set delivery time. Bruns has had a leading role in advising, engineering and producing high-end conditional and burglar-retardant showcases.
