“Breaking Boundaries” is a new hybrid concept where art, design and beauty are combined to establish a cohesive, intimate, and personal experience. For this initiative Maison Bu (personal beauty experience) partnered up with Forwart Gallery (contemporary mixed-media art gallery) and Objects With Narratives (international contemporary gallery for collectible design). It takes place in a former renovated post office right in the city center of Hasselt, Belgium. While the left wing houses all facilities for the Maison Bu, the right wing extends the experience into art and design. Here contemporary artists and designers come together to redesign a space that alludes to the historical architecture of the building. Each piece displayed, distinctively conveys their own story, and as a collective, transmits the values of an ongoing dialogue between the artists.
