From Maria Malibran to Jane Graverol, in the footsteps of women artists in Ixelles – Guided tour with guide-lecturer Fanny Paquet
The commune of Ixelles has been a popular area for artists and writers since the early 19th century. If male names abound in the collective memory, it is however much more difficult to remember the women artists who lived in this commune. This visit proposes to revisit the history of a dozen women from Brussels who lived from their artistic talent in the 19th and 20th centuries, while questioning the mechanisms of invisibilization of women in history and art history.
Fanny Paquet has always had a passion for the history of Brussels (geographical, literary, architectural...). She has been working for five years as an assistant and tour guide at the René Magritte Museum in Jette. Involved in the feminist movements, she tries to make women visible in the history of art and Brussels history in her guided tours.
