October 2015 - the "Fan Month" in Brussels

Like every two years, "Dire et Voir Bruxelles" organises the Biennale Art Nouveau/Art Deco: each weekend in October, private buildings are exceptionally opened to the public. As already in 2013, Margaretha Mazura will present her period fans at two occasions:

The first weekend (3/4 October), the fans will be put into relation with vases from the same period, and in one case even by the same artist. Georges de Feure had a large portfolio of different designs that included vases and fans.
Two de Feure vases and two advertising fans by de Feure. 

The vases stem from the Schellhorn-Grupp collection.
More info about the first weekend and this exhibition here.

The second weekend (10/11 October) opens the doors of another "commune" of Brussels. On this weekend, with the title "Plumes et Paillettes", the location will be the "Concert Noble", a ballroom still in use as such, e.g. for the Viennese Ball. Margaretha Mazura will show fans different from the first weekend: feather and paillettes and advertising fans with masks. For the first time, the breath-taking collection of feather fans of a Brussels collector with complement her fans.
