Ghent-Authentic & the Ghent Altarpiece: a match made in heaven!

0010012010

Despite the fact that we see the Ghent Altarpiece almost on a daily base and this for the past 8 years, it doesn't cease to fascinate and inspire us. Since the foundation of Ghent-Authentic, the Ghent Altarpiece is the major focus, expertise  and inspiration of Ghent-Authentic.

Our  mission is to open up art, in this case medieval religious art which is traditionally considered as quite unaccessible, to a bigger audience, to make it inspiring and relevant today. In short, we see ourselves as a ‘a bridge’ between the scholars and the public.  We like to share our knowledge and passion for it with you. The Ghent Altarpiece has enough 'flesh' to stand on its own or it can be perfectly integrated in most of our tours. 

In this section below you find all our Ghent Altarpiece programmes

 

Private late night visit of the Ghent Altarpiece Van Eyck

Up close and personal at the Ghent Altarpiece - private visit

One of our most extraordinary private visits, if not the most important one, is a late night private and guided visit of the Ghent Altarpiece in the St-Baafscathedral. Having the cathedral all by yourself, experiencing the over 1000 years of history in it will make you understand and experience the Ghent Altarpiece in a total different light.

We take the time to go indept in the most fascinating parts of it and interact with you on a very personal level.

Inspiring talks on the Ghent Altarpiece by founder Kristel Vereecken

Founder Ghent-Authentic

Since its foundation in 2010, the Ghent Altarpiece is the major focus of Ghent-Authentic.

Prior to Ghent’s Van Eyck Year in 2020, Ghent-Authentic's founder Kristel Vereecken plans a series of inspiring talks about the Ghent Altarpiece throughout 2019 as well in Belgium as abroad and this as well in English as in Dutch.

"I see the Altarpiece on almost a daily base and this since 8 years. I have given talks about it right in front of it and behind the scenes of it for what must be by now in the thousands of people and it never ceases to fascinate or inspire me. On the contrary! My mission has always been to open up art, in this case medieval religious art which is traditionally considered as quite unaccessible, to a bigger audience and to make it inspiring and relevant today"

As a quick intro, please take a look at the Ted Talk I gave about the Altarpiece in  ‘A square meter of soul’.
