Modern art

The creation of art didn't stop after the Lys Painters passed away. The region has remained very appreciative of art. The following museums and modern art galleries are much-loved by art lovers.

The Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens arises like a surprise in the rather traditional landscape along the Lys River in Deurle. It is mainly open for temporary exhibitions of modern art from Belgium and abroad.

Be-Part, the platform for modern art in Waregem, proves that art doesn't always have to be pompous. Be-Part doesn't house a permanent collection; it exhibits work by contemporary artists every two or three months. Other hotspots for modern art include Bubox in Kortrijk, Muze’um L in Roeselare, where the sun is the artist, the Kunstenhuis in Harelbeke, and Deweer Gallery in Otegem.
