"Intrigue" is an exhibition of theatrical, satirical and macabre works by James Ensor, specially curated by Belgian artist Luc Tuymans.

James Ensor spent his entire professional life in the seaside town of Ostend, but still managed to exert a considerable influence on the development of Expressionism. As an innovator and outsider, he naturally rebelled against his conservative art teachings, and was drawn towards the avant-garde salons where his wild imagination and creative visions could thrive.

The resulting artworks depict masks and carnivals and flamboyant costumes in vibrant colours, and this exhibition will showcase a selection of his most brilliantly bizarre and surreal creations.
