What are the Bonnefanten Free Fridays?

A free evening at the museum. With and for you.

Museums are the treasures of society in which past and present come together. They are the memory of the city, region and country and offer new windows to the world or enlarge the existing perspectives. Especially in this time, where everything revolves around experiencing and experiencing yourself, museums are perhaps more important than ever. They are places for reflection, wonder and astonishment, all emotions that give museums an intrinsic value. This must of course be accessible to everyone. With #BFF we hope to give more people that accessibility.

During Bonnefanten Free Fridays (#BFF), we open the doors for a free evening in the museum. Each edition, we invite a surprising association, club, foundation or sub-culture to organise a unique programme together. As a starting point for the programme, we take the collections of ancient and contemporary art or the temporary exhibitions currently on show in the museum. The programming consists of various activities, which challenge the visitor to change from spectator to participant or even co-creator.

Made possible by Provincie Limburg, VriendenLoterij and Ministerie van Onderwijs, Cultuur en Wetenschap.

Date: Friday, 10 March
Time: 8 pm – 11 pm
Entrance: free

Every Bonnefanten Free Fridays (#BFF) we surprise visitors with a free evening in the museum.

This time, we are working closely with the 'Oud-Limburgse Schuttersfederatie' on the occasion of the Standard Bearer on Tour. Like the museum, the museum shop and Ipanema will also be open.

On the occasion of TEFAF Maastricht, it will be an extra festive evening with plenty of focus on art, Limburg archers and standard-bearers, and music. Such as an interview with artist Berlinde De Bruyckere, art talks with experts, workshops, a swinging performance by Jazzsounds and party lovers can dance in the tower!

Artist Talk with Berlinde De Bruyckere

Berlinde De Bruyckere talks with junior curators Jip van Reijen and Celien Govaerts about the entwinement between ancient art and contemporary visual art. In 2020, Bonnefanten acquired Arcangelo III, 2020 and recently placed this work among its collection of medieval sculptures. De Bruyckere will talk about her sources of inspiration (old masters, Christian iconography, literature, film and music) and how she tries to bring them to a contemporary platform.

Last but not least, it is also the perfect opportunity to visit the museum for free and to check out the current programme. For more info on what’s on view, click here.
