Thursday, June 2, 2016 —
Art and a determination to forge ahead are two of the intrinsic elements of ING Belgium’s identity and play a leading role in our history and in our outlook. This is illustrated by the ING contemporary art collection, which has been running for more than 50 years now, alongside exhibitions held at the ING Art Centre, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, and is currently hosting the exhibition “next”, by the Austrian artist Peter Kogler.
As a financial institution striving to help people stay a step ahead in life and in business, ING Belgium is a logical partner for the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel. A stay at the Music Chapel represents a milestone in the life of musicians, who are trained and encouraged to surpass themselves in an environment which unbridles their artistic talent.
Since the beginning of the partnership six years ago, ING Belgium has seen the Chapel undergo a real transformation, by readily adopting the new MuCH concept (Music Chapel) which aims to host a broad range of public concerts within the Chapel itself. The Chapel promotes classical music through this programme, by making it accessible to everyone.
Driven by the same desire to share its contemporary art collection, ING Belgium is also making available two works by the artist Ann Veronica Janssens at the Music Chapel : Untitled (Pink), 2010 and Bright green 2010-2013. These artworks complement the aesthetic atmosphere of this site, which is dedicated to music, and embody the link unifying different artistic mediums, the Chapel and the bank.
By loaning-out works from our collection and publicising forthcoming musical events via our local branch networks, we are demonstrating our full commitment to this partnership and our determination to forge ahead together.
We sincerely hope that furthering this partnership will enable many young virtuosos to give free rein to their talent, for the greatest pleasure of the Belgian and international public.
